Dryad Flutes

Adopting a Dryad Flute

Respect for the art of making branch flutes has taught me to work with consideration for the trees first.  For the community of Life first.  For the Earth first.  When I'm out gathering a branch for a flute, I'll open my heart to the spirit of the tree and its community, asking if there's a branch that might want to sing.  And if there is, I'll send a prayer of gratitude and an offering of water or tobacco, before gathering the branch.  This connection with the spirit of the tree continues through the flute making process, asking the tree how it might make the flute, given my hands, ears and eyes to work with.  And if Creation grants that we're able to find a spirit-filled, high quality voice in the branch, I'll then take detailed photos and record a video sound sample to offer up on a web page.  If a connection is then made with someone's heart and they respond to this one-of-a-kind song of the tree, loving the flute enough to adopt it, then the branch flute has found a home.  

If this way of working resonates with you, then your interest in Dryad Flutes is greatly appreciated and I'll be very happy to send out email notices to you when a completed flute is available for adoption, offered directly from this website through PayPal purchasing, first come first served.

Regarding Pricing:
Dryad Flutes may seem to be on the higher end of the pricing scale.  This is due to the difficulty of the solid bore design I use and the time, care and attention required in making concert/recording quality flutes from one-of-a-kind tree branches.  One at a time.  I simply cannot mass produce/market these flutes.  They are intended as individual works of healing art, made sustainably and in good fellowship with the diverse web of life on this one, beautiful, blue-green planet we all share.

Wishing you health, peace and many natural blessings,
Jon Sherman
