This is an 18-inch shamanic drum made from Red Deer rawhide and is a really special drum in that it was birthed at the time of the ‘Hare’ Full Moon. Our Medieval English Ancestors called the Full Moon in May the Hare Moon. We have written some words about the energy of Hare below. The hoop is English Ash waxed with beeswax from rescued bees, and we have set a Galaxite Crystal in the handle. The tension ring is wrapped in a suede and the fluffy fabric finishes off the handle so that it is really comfortable to hold.
Hare cannot be tamed and is a symbol of freedom; a reminder that you have a wild nature within you and that your soul is calling out to run free. As Hare quickly twists and turns, the energy these drums will hold is about overcoming your fears and aiming for your dreams without letting anything get in your way.
Hare comes and answers your souls call, guiding us through the waves of change as the old falls away and the new pushes tentacles of hope up towards the sky. Through Hare, we can turn our fear into faith and doubt into opportunity. Taking a full World view we can spot any dangers and use our quick whit and talent to twist and turn to out manoeuvre any obstacles in the way of us reaching our desires. With Hare, we will not let anything get in our path.
Big shifts are happening in our night skies right now which will bring a change in energy around transformation. Only just a few days ago Uranus, the planet of ruthless changes, moved into Taurus where it will stay for the next eight years. This marks a huge shift in energy, forcing us to move out of our comfort zones and find a different way of living. It will lead us towards exciting opportunities and finding new ways of doing things where the old way just isn’t working for us anymore.
Hare energy will help us in this transformation.
An animal of magic, Hare is the shapeshifter, able to walk between the Worlds. Hare draws us down the mysterious path supporting us in our ability to travel to the Otherworlds and bring back a restored depth of understanding.
Hare also has a special message for those of us who find this path a lonely one. This is an animal of solitude, and reminds us that is OK to be a loner. Living on the edge we can often find ourselves on our own, but history has proven itself time and time again that these kinds of people can be invaluable. Doing things your own way, breaking the rules and being different from the norm is what has the potential to create great changes in society.
Finally and perhaps most importantly of all we should remember that When Hare comes in to contact with other animals they will often make friends and love to tease them into playing. Hare reminds us to take time to play, to leap with joy and celebrate life.
The energy of Galaxite
Galaxite is a type of moonstone that has the most beautiful blue, cyan and white shimmer. As you gaze into it you have a sense of staring up into the night sky and glimpsing the Milky Way adorning our night sky. It complements the energy of Hare beautifully. This stone will guide you in every step of the way in your transformation. It will help soothe your fears and worries away and remove anything in your life that is preventing you from trying something new or making a change. Galaxite brings out the best in people, and its energies will infuse you with creativity, motivation and productivity.

The energy of Red Deer
When we encounter the Red Deer in the wild, our breath catches and we are transfixed by their graceful features and delicate movements. We can draw on their energy to give us the power to deal with challenges with grace. As Red Deer holds a real gentleness, we can be sensitive and intuitive was we walk our path. We can also hold onto vigilance and also adaptability, with the ability to change direction quickly should we need to. Just as the deer has an uncanny sense of where to find the green freshness earth provides, we can ask the deer within ourselves to seek out our inner treasures.
About the making of this drum
We make our drums from our home on the edge of the West Pennine Moors in the northwest of England. We create the drums in sacred space each drum is birthed through ceremony, over mugwort incense.
We also take great care in the sourcing of our materials. The Red Deer hide used to make this drum is from Scotland and the timber for the Ash hoop is sourced from UK ash and is crafted by a local carpenter in Wigan. The wood has a layer of beeswax to bring out it’ natural grain. The wax is from bees which have been rescued.
