We are Thom and Judy Dandridge and we have been fortunate enough to be together on a wonderful journey of love and adventure for 46 years. Our company, Pathdrummer, is a small business that promotes spiritual healing and relaxation through the use of the drum. We are the drum keepers of a Spirit Awakening Drum named Beverly. This drum came to us in a vision during a pipe ceremony and we began the journey of realizing this vision in 2010. At this time, we worked with a non-profit in Knoxville, TN and enjoyed doing the work that we felt was our life’s mission. However, as the drum came into fruition we realized that our paths lay in sharing this drum and her message with the universe. Beverly, the Spirit Awakening Drum, is 36 inches in diameter and has a full, deep tone that promotes healing through vibrations and relaxation. To our knowledge, there is no other drum like this in the world.
In November of 2014, we realized that it was time to bring drumming into the forefront of our lives. We left our jobs, moved back to our property in Florida (the Pathdrummer Homestead), and began the beautiful journey of bringing Beverly, the Spirit Awakening Drum to the world.
We have released 2 cd’s and they have been well received. Our “Four Elements Meditations” contains four guided meditations, while “Drumming in Durango” contains songs done with our large drum that can be enjoyed anywhere. Our music is being streamed and purchased in countries around the world; Turkey, Sweden, Canada, and Australia to name a few. We have a social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube, and while not large, is slowly growing every day.
Our company teaches workshops on creating personal spirit frame drums and how to use your frame drum for spiritual drumming. Using our Spirit Awakening Drum, Beverly, our personal services include energy infused drum meditation, vibrational drum baths, and other private sessions. We create and sell custom, hand-made Spirit frame drums in deer, elk, moose, and buffalo.
