I began my journey with my first drum in 2007, when a number of people from my circle and I bought hide drums to work with in healing and for journeying. We, with Dan Livingston, arranged a Drum Awakening Ceremony at our healing group, which continued as a monthly drumming circle and grew from there.
In that time, my drum was a great friend in my personal spiritual journey and played a major part in my work with others, either with drum healing or journeying.
A few years later, I met Lynn Gosney and all the others in the Caer Corhrain community and was shown the full art of making drums with them. With Lynn and Caer Corhrain, we birthed hundreds drums, all done in an honourable way and in ceremony, and those drums have shared their voice and healing with many.
Now, with Heron Drums, I feel very honoured with how it has grown to the point that these drums are sounding their rhythm all across the world, with some as far as Australia, and very loudly all across the UK, as well as being able to supply many other top drum makers. It is an honour to birth drums, to see others birth drums, and now that Heron Drums is supplying drum makers all over the world, it is beautiful to be a part of the journey of so many drums coming into being.
Heron Drums has shared the sacred craft of drum birthing with hundreds over the past few years, with some travelling from the US, South Africa, Iceland and Taiwan to learn with us. I feel very strongly that is our mission to share these sacred tools with as many people as we can so that more have access to the tools with which they can connect with the sacred and with spirit.
