The astrological sign of Taurus gives us courage and tenacity and supports our growth, we can navigate challenges with a strong will and sense of stability; the powerful transformative and protective energies of the Blackthorn tree blend perfectly into this full moon and lunar eclipse time offering us and unparalleled opportunity for personal evolution. All of these energies have been woven into the drum during its birthing.

This drum also has a unique marking on the wood of the frame in the shape of a bat – you can read my instagram post of why and how this came about here Instagram bat post 

Reindeer Hide laced on a beeswaxed 16″ Birch frame and a pewter coloured leather bound ring, four crystal drum resonators are created with captive large moonstone tumble stones. These are held between the frame and the hide at each of the four directions, connecting to the elements and the cycles and seasons of the wheel of the year.

Finished with a pewter coloured leather wrapped Bridget’s Cross handle inset with an unusual Peach Moonstone as the Heart Stone.

The matching pewter leather leather song caller is filled with natural wool from our pet sheep and bound onto a hand polished Black Willow wood handle gathered from our own Willow trees grown on Exmoor.

Moonstone, with its ethereal shimmer, is a gem steeped in myth and magic. Throughout history, many ancient cultures have prized it, entranced by its otherworldly appearance and the mysteries it evoked. Historically, moonstone has been intimately tied to moon deities and lore across various cultures. It’s a stone often associated with love, passion, and fertility, as well as bringing emotional balance and holistic well-being.

The drum comes with a small matching medicine pouch, 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 your 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.

This gorgeous shamanic reindeer drum has a level harmonic, resonant and powerful tone to its song, with multiple sweet spots to play, it would make a wonderful healing or journeying drum.

Ros Simons has been creating sacred shamanic drums 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 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 shamanic reindeer 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 Reindeer carries a powerful matriarchal energy, immensely resilient and powerful and yet is a gentle spirit and a great healer. Here in these Northern lands, the Reindeer is sometimes associated with the Goddess Elen. In Mongolia Reindeer feature prominently on ancient megaliths carved with symbols. Little is known about their meaning or function; these “deer stones” take their name from the stylised depictions of flying deer carved into the stone.

Reindeer as a totem animal symbolises protection, wisdom, resourcefulness, knowledge, connection, creativity and inventiveness.

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

The reindeer hides come from herds owned by traditional Sami herders in Northern Sweden, the animals are wild culled by their herders in order to make their traditional living and to maintain the health of their herds. Ros buys the hides through a small family run tannery to support and honour this traditional and ancient way of life, ensuring that all of the animal is used and nothing is wasted. 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 that Ros has created. 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.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 by Ros and seasoned every year.
