18″ Shamanic Red Deer Crystal Resonance Drum “Awakening Dream”

18″ Shamanic Red Deer Crystal Resonance Drum

Birthed in ceremony on the Snow Moon 2022 and laced onto an Oak Frame with a matching Song Caller on Rowan Wood


This unique Shamanic Red Deer Crystal Resonance Drum was birthed in Ceremony on the Full Snow Moon in Leo on 16th February 2022, also the full moon of the Rowan tree.

The Snow Moon is mentioned within the teachings or numerous Indigenous peoples and represents the peak of winter, a time when the ground is most likely to be blanketed in white in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere. A time to nurture your dreams and ideas for the year to come. The astrological sign of Leo activates our creativity and passion and supports us to move forward with courage and compassion to shine our light in the world. The powerful protective and heart opening energies of the Rowan tree blend perfectly into this full moon time offering us enhanced psychic and visionary abilities. All of these energies have been woven into the drum during its birthing.

Red Deer Hide laced on a golden stained 18″ Oak frame and a dark brown leather bound ring, twelve crystal drum resonators are created with captive large snow quartz tumble stones. These are held between the frame and the hide and represent the 12 full moons of 2022 and also the combination of the Four Directions of the medicine wheel – North, East, South and West; the Four Elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water and the Four Aspects of our human incarnation – Physical – Body, Intellectual – Mind, Emotional – Heart and Spiritual – Soul.

Finished with a dark brown leather wrapped Bridget’s Cross handle inset with a clear quartz stone.

This drum comes with a matching dark brown leather 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 Rowan wood handle.

The drum comes with a small matching medicine pouch with a snowflake charm 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 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 striking shamanic red deer drum has a deep, resonant and powerful tone to its song, with multiple sweet spots to play, it would make a wonderful ceremonial or journeying drum.

Clear Quartz is often referred to as the Master Healer in crystals. Seen as more masculine it is a transformative stone that brings powerful,  incisive teachings and is a wonderful stone to work with, to open up and release dreams that we have been holding.

Snow Quartz is milky, white and opaque. It has a more feminine energy, is smooth and gentle bringing the clarity and expansiveness of Clear Quartz more softly. It encourages and supports our intuition in a balanced and harmonious way, bringing calm and peace in times of turmoil.

This combination of Clear and Snow quartz together brings a blend of energies that facilitate the balanced and easy manifestation of our dreams into physical reality, encouraging us to move forward into new possibilities and to deepen our understanding of what we ‘know’. Powerful stones to harness together at this full Snow Moon in Leo encouraging forward momentum along our life path.

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 red deer 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 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. 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 by Ros and seasoned every year.
