This unique Shamanic Red Deer Drum was birthed in Ceremony on The Lunar Eclipse and Blackthorn Full Moon in Taurus on 19th November 2021.This tree moon represents transformation and transcendence and ushers in a time of powerful clearing of patterns and blocks facilitating us to create strong boundaries. All of these energies have been woven into the drum during its birthing

The drum comes with a small matching medicine pouch with a Birch disc decoration and contains personally gathered natural sacred items representative of the four elements of earth, air, fire and water and also includes a hand picked crystal as a gift for you, and your drum. As your connection to drum evolves these unique pouches can be filled with personal items which can be changed in and out dependent on the work you are undertaking together with your drum.

Technically Kambaba Jasper is a Stromatolite, which is fossilised algae. (It can also be referred to as a green stromatolite jasper.) The Kambaba stone is known for promoting peace and tranquillity. in particular by removing any energetic blockages in the base and heart chakras. This assists in alleviating negativity and promoting serenity and clarity. It help people find an emotional balance when it may be lacking, and can be particularly effective during challenging times helping to boost confidence and reduce feelings of fear and worry. When working with this stone for shamanic journeying the mind clears and becomes more open for messages to be received from spirit.

Ros Simons has been creating sacred shamanic drums and ceremonial tools for over 18 years, using personally refined techniques and practices that were handed down to her in the traditional way from teachers and mentors.

The drum-birthing process is carried out in ceremonial space, with prayers and thanks given to honour the spirit of the animal, the trees and the stones of the earth that gifted themselves to bring these sacred allies and medicine tools into being. The drum lacing is cut from the same hide as the drum head ~ weaving the spirit of the animal into the drum; the wood, the colours and any crystals incorporated into each drum are gathered by Ros through otherworld journeying and guidance from her drum guide, each drum is unique.

Your personal drum will become a guide, a healer, a teacher and a friend, that walks with you on your path, and takes you on a deep journey of other world and inner world exploration.

All of the Shamanic Drums birthed by Ros are guaranteed for two years provided you treat them with love and care and follow the included drum care instructions.

If this drum has already found its keeper or you would like a Shamanic Drum similar to this, but unique and birthed especially for you, then you can order a bespoke drum to be made to your individual wishes and birthed with your own prayers and intentions. For more information please take a look at the Commissions Page.

The Red Deer carries the energy of a gentle powerhouse. Swift moving with a keen eye, the deer connects us to our heart energy.

In Native American traditions the deer was a messenger, an animal of power, and a totem representing sensitivity, intuition and gentleness. In Celtic lore there were two aspects of the deer: the female red deer, symbolising femininity, gentleness and grace; and the male red deer, related to the sacred and to the forests, symbolising independence, purification and pride. The stag is the king of the forest, the protector of all other creatures.

All of the hides and frames for Ros Simons shamanic drums are sustainably and ethically sourced.

The red deer hides come from wild culled deer, a process which is necessary to maintain the health of the herds; and prior to being purchased by Ros the hides were being buried or burnt. All the skins Ros uses in her drums have been a bi-product of another sustainable purpose (killed for food or due to environmental pressures of overpopulation) and would otherwise be wasted; no animal was ever killed just to provide skin for a drum. Drum making can be seen as a reparation, a way of returning some beauty and honouring to an animal whose life has already been taken. In this way we return more to the ways of our ancestors, ensuring that all of the animal is used and nothing is wasted. The spirit of the animal lives on and is reborn into the drum.

The Wood for the frames is sourced from sustainably managed forests; and the wood for the song callers is personally gathered and seasoned by Ros every year.
