"A New Rhythm"
~The day may pass but the essence of the day I sense, is true of these times for years to come~
of the Mayan Calender, & yet of course a new one begins, a new
cycle. Astronomically we have moved through 12 zodiac ages each of
approx 2160 years. Aside from the Mayans, the Tibetans, ancient
Egyptians, Cherokee & Hopi Indians also refer to the same 26000
years in their mystical belief systems and saw great significance in
this time and transition.
the sun is in conjunction
with the equator of the Milky Way and our solar system
transverses the physical and therefore electromagnetic
centre of the Galaxy.
Milky Way ‘straddles’ the Earth touching it at all points and, according to
the Mayan mythology, a ‘Cosmic Gateway’ is opened.
mythological language this event signifies the joining of the First Father with
the Cosmic Mother – or more precisely: the rebirth of the First Father (the sun
of the solstice) through the womb of Cosmic Mother (the dark space in the Milky
Way). The beginning of a new Great Cycle and emergence of a new era - the
resetting of the great stellar clock - and
perhaps a new stage in the nature of human consciousness and civilization.
WHATS THIS GOT TO DO WITH DIDGERIDOO
always played didg for how it makes me feel, its fun & there is a harmonizing, a
balancing that seems to occur within, and I so relate to the myth where
Ubar the hollow log is related as containing the masculine phalus
spirit as well as the uterus of the mother, the inner
feminine feeling world. (more on this myth & dreaming Heartland Dance) Thus
for me didgeridoo is a gender balanced & inclusive instrument. I reckon for all of us in these
times, men woman, children; it reminds us to play,
enjoy have fun, and to be earthed and be in our heart. For the
heart is the centre, that place beyond opposites and didgeridoo helps us
to centre back in. In that place for me it empowers the masculine, the man that
I am, as well as supporting me embrace my feminine that is equally a part of me.
have sensed in my bones for decades that we live in a time where we
have the opportunity to reconcile the inner and outer divide.
Didgeridoo for me is an incredible friend on that journey. This
solstice and this new age, we keep hearing about.... the heralding of the Aquarian age, is deemed to be
a more spiritual and community connected phase in our evolution.
Well sounds good...bring it on.
WE HAD A BEAUTIFUL GATHERING LAST NIGHT
world wide gather/ed to celebrate solstice 21st Dec 2012 and I cant help but
share how uplifted I feel post a gathering last night with about
30 friends at our home. We played instruments, sung songs and
shared hopes and dreams. We learnt & sung a particular song that
was sung by people world wide on this day, & we played many didgs
with five of us there being players. Two friends also had recently hung out with
Djalu and the rhythms were rich and soul filling. To
empower this turning point, that the night centred in on, we structured the night around a
flexible ritual construct which helped deepen the experience for all.
Whether just a lovely mix of folk & or the focus of the
solstice, it was wonderful heart opening experience. And wow
did didg gift so much to the eve. I will have a couple of pics & a
blog on the ritual/ didg side of things coming.

END 2012 UPDATE~ whats news~ whats coming~
previous years web updates & live stock on the site for sale have
been a bit behind & yet behind the scenes, the shop is full of
didgeridoos & more didgerdoos get found, get made and find new
homes and my custom orders increase and the need for the web site to be
live in some ways lessened.
Everything changes though,
and as I have now passed 20 years as maker and just last
week coded my 2500'th didgeridoo that i've made, I find a shift in my
didg world is here..
With this shift I find myself
excited to connect more outwardly again and share more intimitely what
I've been gifted with over the years.
Aside from my passion making quality individual didgeridoos and playing of course,
I have atttracted through my interest ,countless experiences playing
didgeridoos in rituals of all sorts, from births to funerals,
weddings, initiations and been blessed to be part
of traditional ceremony and used the didgeridoo as a tool within
healing sessions; and I look fwd to sharing via blogs and vids stories
& snap shots. I hope they'll support your journeys, and help
increase the respect for , and the use of the didgeridoo in ways
that reflect its full gifts.
I had a realization
lately. Knowing the part of me that chooses to be connected
to all aspects of the process, finding, making, art & playing as
well as helping clients & managing web site, this has a gift and a
challenge. The gift is two fold. Its rich as, and anyone
buying from Heartland gets a didg that has full connection from the
land to you, loved all the way into being. The relationship is alive.
No dissection of tasks. On the other side, is the
challenge, that Heartland doesn't have the economies of scale or dissection
of tasks that in a modern way supports productivity.
main area that has
suffered recent years has been the web site, and I have
previously been in wait mode for the full rebuild before making a
change, only to now realize
that waiting for it to be perfectly ready is perhaps missing the point.
Maybe the gift I have to offer is to share that journey, be transparent
and take you on a journey with me as I rebuild the site and
really let you in to the Heartland didg world.
stay tuned as uploads hit the site. I'm hinting at a shift that
has begun here at Heartland. I'll be in touch again by end of
jan'13 I'm real excited about the year to come, & I look
forward to sharing the world of didgeridoo with you. if theres anything
you are particularly wanting to know, or want to see a blog on, feel
drop us an email .
happy days & didgin, Tynon
if considerig a new didgeridoo, do consider a custom didg. It's a

|A DIDG HAND
is no other instrument known that nature has created, that is so
musically expressive. It inspires wonder , and is both
calming and enlivening. Didgeridoo has been played for perhaps thousands
of years. It was found by the aboriginal
peoples of the north of Australia.
didgeridoos in rituals, for enjoyment and for healing purposes, aboriginal
folk developed highly evolved and intricate styles of playing
In our modern world today, didgeridoo playing has birthed another
journey with endless variations and musical possibilities.
Whether they're made from hardwood, Agave, bamboo, gourds, or plastic,
or played, traditional, techno, jazz or blues, whether along
with a guitar, a drum, bagpipes or flute; this amazing instrument
is still being discovered and reinvented. You and I are
part of that unfolding and each of us will give something special,
just as we do by being ourself. Didgeridoo is a special
instrument for supporting our personal expression. All power to your
journey didg friend !!!!!!!!
