16″ Shamanic Reindeer Drum

Birthed in Ceremony on
This unique Shamanic Reindeer Drum was birthed in Ceremony on The Blackthorn New Moon & Lunar Samhain on 25th October 2022 at the time of a partial solar eclipse. 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.

Reindeer Hide laced on a teal stained 16″ Willow frame and a aubergine leather bound ring.

Finished with teal leather and mixed sari silk wrapped Bridgets cross handle inset with a stunning Fluorite crystal as the heart stone.

This drum comes with a matching aubergine and sari silk wrapped leather song caller, birthed together with the drum, this is stuffed with wool from our own ‘pet’ sheep and is bound onto a hand polished Blackthorn Wood handle: and is finished with recycled hand dyed sari-silk streamers.

The drum comes with a small matching medicine pouch with a Blackthorn decoration, which 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

This striking shamanic reindeer drum has a powerful tone to its song, deeply resonant it would make a wonderful ceremonial or journeying drum.

Fluorite cleanses and stabilises the aura, absorbing and neutralising negative energy and stress. An excellent mind opener, Fluorite increases our powers of concentration, self-confidence and helps us in decision-making and can help us to interpret our shamanic journeys with ease and clarity. It encourages positivity, bringing balance joy and harmony.
The colours of this rainbow stone mirror the colours of the sedge grasses which inspired this drum and echo the colours of the Blackthorn tree through the season and together with this tree energy creates a powerful symbiosis for transformation.

Ros Simons has been creating sacred shamanic drums for over 19 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. 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.
