New Limited Edition Winter Solstice Drums

 
 

These Special Edition Drums are now sold out.

However we are planning to birth another special edition of drums at the time of the Oak Moon at the end of December.

If you'd like to be told when you can order please enter your details below.

We are going to birth some of our special edition drums over the Winter Solstice.

We are only able to make a limited number in one day, as each drum takes some time to birth.  Awakened in ceremony as the sun rests on the horizon they will embody the energies of stillness, strength and peace.

These will be 16-inch Shamanic drums made from dark Reindeer hide and Oak, with a choice of three different styles, each with a crystal set in the handle which amplifies the energy of this time of year.

Now is the time to consider pre-ordering yours, and here are all the details you will need to decide whether one of these drums is calling you. We are also offering a three month payment plan which is detailed below.

The Energy of The Winter Solstice

At this special time of year the sun rises in the same place on the horizon for three days, preparing for its journey back across our skies towards the height of summer.

Everything is still, and everything is at rest. It is a time to drop deep within ourselves, seek out our dreams and visions and then plan to manifest them as we look towards the growing light.

The old year has died, and the way is now prepared for the rebirth of activity and expansion into the outer world.

In recognition of the auspicious day on which your drum was birthed, we will decorate the inside the wooden hoop with a sun motif.

The energy of Oak

In Celtic Mythology there is an endless battle between twins, the Holly King and the Oak King. They are personifications of winter and summer. From the point of the Summer Solstice, the Holly King is supreme and reigns over the following six months.

At the Winter Solstice, the Oak King is reborn ready to regain his power. He is once again supreme up to midsummers night.

In recognition of this legend, we have chosen to create these drums using an oak frame rather than our usual ash.

The underlying energy of oak speaks of inner strength and will lead the way to truth, bringing personal power and vision. Oak energy is also known to provide a gateway to understanding.

Oak restores the will and self-determination that may have become weakened in times of stress and restores your faith in your vision.

You and Your Drum

Your drum will have been made specifically for you and holds the energy which speaks to you most at this time.

It is your sacred tool providing an extension to you for all your healing work, whether it be self-healing, healing others or helping heal the Earth.

Please be aware that every drum is unique and the patterning of both the reindeer hide and the crystal will differ slightly from each other.

Use your drum as a vehicle to journey to the other realms, and connect in with your spirit guides and helpers. Journey on the beat of the drum.

Use it to call in those specific qualities which you seek most in order to find your deep inner knowing and authentic self.

Calm yourself. It's been scientifically proven that people who drum see a drop in their stress and anxiety, as well as reduced blood pressure, increased brain white matter and cognitive function, reduced pain, increased immunity. Regular exposure to the beat of your drum can also help overcome socio-emotional challenges.

We have three winter solstice drums to choose from

each holding a carefully considered crystal to compliment and amplify the energy at this special time.

Stillness - Blue Tigers Eye

Blue Tigers Eye is also known as Hawks Eye. It has a beautiful deep blue colour, like the night sky, and is a very soothing stone as it aids in reducing stress, increasing calm and easing anxiety.

It supports speaking with clarity and acting with integrity. We have named this drum after the still quiet energy of the Winter Solstice, and it will be created with a deep dark blue ring to match the crystal, and finished with a grey furry handle.

Strength - Sunstone

Sunstone is a stone of personal power and freedom and reflects the qualities of solar light. It holds the energy of openness, warmth, strength and mental clarity, and can kindle the fire of leadership within.

It can help melt away fears of self doubt enabling us to move forward drawing on our inner strength to achieve things we thought we might not be capable of.

We have named this drum after the strength that we see in the mighty Oak, and it has a red ring and a brown furry handle.

Peace - Amethyst

The Amethyst crystal promotes calm, balance and peace, helping to still thoughts and clear away any negativity which has arisen through stress and anxiety. With a quiet mind, it is easier for us to connect in with our spirit guides and strengthen our intuition.

Amethyst can also help with problem-solving, so you are more easily able to understand a situation and make decisions.

We have named this drum peace, after the quiet time we experience in nature at this time of year, and it has a purple ring and a grey brown furry handle.

Your drum will be made from reindeer hide and will be 16 inches in diameter.

Our 16 inch drums are our most popular sized drums as they are easy to hold and have a lovely deep tone.

The hide is from reindeer who run wild on the Scandinavian tundra. Each year they are brought down and the older ones carefully selected for the cull in a tradition that has spanned thousands of years. Their meat is an important food source, and their skins are a by-product of this process. Usually light in colour these hides have been dyed with an organic dye to give them a beautiful dark mottled texture.

The overarching energy of Reindeer is perseverance. The reindeer has an incredible ability to persevere under challenging environments, and across great distances too, some travelling as far as 3,000 miles in one season.

Their energy teaches us that great things are possible in our lives. In their surefootedness they can support us to utilise our internal gifts so that we can be as equally sure-footed in any situation. This helps us to easily walk through any challenges which may come our way as we walk our path to realise our dreams.

Within each drum, we embed a crystal and craft a fluffy handle, which makes the drum comfortable to hold for those longer drumming sessions.

 

The Birthing of Your Drum

We will birth your drum at the time of the Winter Solstice.

Once we have birthed your drum, we will carry out a special awakening ceremony. We will call in the four directions Earth, Air, Fire and Water, smudge your drum with a special awakening incense and call in the Spirit of the Drum.

To birth your drum, we spend time preparing your hoop by sanding it down, painting on the sun motif and finishing it with a layer of bee’s wax, from rescued bees in Lancashire, to bring out the beautiful grain in the wood.

The oak drum frame is made locally by a carpenter who lives in the next town along from our home.

Sourcing locally and as ethically as possible is really important to us, and we take care to understand where all of our materials come from.

We will bind the hoop in coloured suede, cut out the reindeer hide and then carefully craft your drum.

Your drum will take around seven to ten days to dry as we don’t rush the drying process, and instead allow your drum to dry in the crisp winter air.

Then once we have fixed the crystal handle fixing, we will post your drum to you via our courier.

Love from Drum Buyers:

"I also love, love, love how much care and attention my drum seemed to have gotten at its original home"

“My deciding factor was intuitive. It was the right drum at the right time - and still is!

I also love, love, love how much care and attention my drum seemed to have gotten at its original home. That made all the difference.

It felt personal and cosy to have a drum from you.”

MELISSA  //  Drum Buyer

"I never knew I could love a drum so much. I hope she will be with me until I die, and then be passed to the next person honoured to be her friend"

"I bought a drum from you about a year ago. It's a 16" deer skin with a crimson tension ring and a black tourmaline in the handle.

I just want to tell you how wonderful this drum is. When I first received her I journeyed to meet all who had participated in the making. What a web of connections!

Far beyond you, or the animals involved, to those who mined the metal and the tourmaline, fed the animals, cared for the trees. A lesson in the web of connections. In the journey she told me to call her Echo Moon Stalker.

I have used her for journeying both alone and in my local shamanic circle and her voice is strong and beautiful. I never knew I could love a drum so much. I hope she will be with me until I die, and then be passed to the next person honoured to be her friend.

Thank you so much for this blessing. With gratitude and joy."

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing drum. I didn't realise how much it was going to change my life"

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing drum. I didn't realise how much it was going to change my life!

I've been looking on youtube for basic lessons and i really appreciated one that advised to hug the drum, it feels so nurturing to me! The vibrations are amazing, so healing, I cant stop playing it, everytime I feel a bit whacked I play and I feel so energised afterwards.

The beautiful thing about it is knowing how much love and care went into sourcing the materials and making it with such presence, along with the beautiful cleansing at the end.

You can really sense that in the drum and I think it makes a huge difference to the feel, and perhaps even the sound of it. So with absolute heartfelt gratitude to you and all other beings who brought this amazing drum to life. Thank you."

Helen  //  Drum Buyer
