Description

This drum is 13", handmade by me from deer hide and has a 3-1/4" willow oak frame. This drum has strong medicine -- she was born on Halloween/Samhain when the veil was thin, to the smell of sweetgrass burning, and has been blessed with sage. Her name is "Healing Heart", and she has been signed and dated on the inside rim. A soft deerskin handle wrap can be added if desired.

She has a higher voice because of the thin deer hide, but the depth of the frame gives a very nice, deep reverb.

Both the name of the drum and the artwork were intuited by working with the drum itself. Once the drum found its voice I went on a short journey to ask it to show me what it wanted painted on its face, and this image was the result.

Elen of the Ways is the Green Lady, the Reindeer Mother... an old goddess who seems to be seeking those who Hear her, recently, judging by the books that have been written about her lately. She also has ties to shamanism and the ley lines.

The drum tones at F# according to my tuner. F is the tone of the Heart Chakra, and F# is for the Higher Heart Chakra.

Painted with intricate detail, and sealed with several layers of Testors Dullcote. Recommended to be played by hand or with a soft beater. The drum comes with a 2-year touch-up policy -- if the design starts to wear, you may ship it back and I'll re-touch the painting. (You only pay shipping both ways - for the first two years, anyways. After that there's a retouching fee.) You can also periodically respray the design with Dullcote, yourself -- it can be found at most hobby & craft stores.

Will ship fully insured and carefully packaged to Canada and the US. Blessings to you on your journey!

(I'd be happy to arrange a payment plan - please convo me!)



• DEER: When we are working on the natural laws of circulation – the circulatory system, the heart – then Deer is our Medicine. Many of us are taught to “figure life out”, so we live in our heads with little attention to our hearts. Deer opens the heart Chakra, teaching us to trust and to empower the feminine qualities of Love and Wisdom.

When we are healing “poverty consciousness”, the belief that there is just not enough time, money or love, drumming with Deer reminds us that we live in an abundant universe, with more than enough of everything. Deer helps us learn the Laws of Circulation –when we feel unloved, then it is time to love others, and that love comes back many-fold.


• WILLOW OAK: The diva of the Willow Oak teaches mental clarity. When you are inundated with worry, anxiety and repetitive thoughts, your mind acts as a screen that keeps you from sensing fully your own spiritual understanding. Willow Oak mentally detaches you from your confusion, and gives you the central focus from a broader perspective. The soul tone is G#, element is air and subtle body affinities are Mental/spiritual. If you want to learn how to meditate, willow oak is a fascinating teacher. It can relax your physical body, calm your anxiety, and aid you in releasing thoughts that run in your head like a broken record. The affirmation is "I still my thoughts with compassion, and center on the Purity and Peace of My Spirit."
