Show 22 – Song the Reciprocal Surrender


In this show, Jeff Stockton, and

John-Luke Edwards are in conversation with Shenoah Taylor and they reflect on the power of The Song in Healing and Spiritual Practice.




Somewhere, somehow there is a great song.

For this to be true there must be a singer and a listener, without both, there can be no song. Our exploration with Shenoah is that the song is the energy of relationship. Music and Song are vibrations of the love of the divine moving through the cosmos. For spiritual traditions this movement manifested in sacred music demonstrated and manifested the love between the mundane and the spiritual, the soul and god


Shenoah Taylor has been involved with shamanism since 1990 and has trained extensively with a number of inspiring shamanic teachers including Jonathan Horwitz, Annette Host, Myron Eschowsky, Betsy Bergstrom and Sandra Ingerman. When she started working with shamanism, for her it was the next step on her own journey of self discovery and healing.

Shenoah says that shamanism is the path of her heart and through it she has come to know her gifts and their place in the world. It has helped her to be in the world in a more present, fulfilled and focussed way.

With the help of the spirits she now supports others to find their own way to empowerment, connection and healing.
