ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Music Review by Ming Yuan
Spirit of Change
January/February 2001
Shawna Carol Goddess Chant - Sacred Pleasure

"In 1986, I was meditating when a fully arranged choral chant came to me.

A large choir was singing the pagan ritual blessing "Blessed Be." I realized that I was being asked to create a new style of sacred music.

Over the next nine years, these sacred seed chants for the Goddess came to me..." With the above introduction, Shawna Carol validates the origin of her inspiration and direction in honoring the divine feminine, the Goddess, Mother Earth.

This devotion led Shawna to realize the powerful healing available for rebalancing the male-female power of the planet.

The lyrics are brief and succinct, on average no more than 5 lines per selection.

These brief stanzas, however, are both powerful and full of power.

A sample case in point is "Be Still": "Be still and listen/know that I am/you are/Goddess." Shawna's strong but angelic vocals and prayer bell accompanied by drone vocals, synthesizer and the glorious guitar pickings of John Mason convey an awe-inspiring tonal beauty beyond description.

Much of the essence of Ms. Carol's work can be discovered in her impressive accomplishments as a composer, singer, recording artist and sound healer.

In addition to composing and performing, she founded and directs SpiritSong Center in Bedford, MA, and has facilitated SpiritSong workshops at the Omega Institute, New York Open Center, Julia Cameron's "Creating Camp," Dance New England and at Paul Winter's "Living Music Village."

Acclaimed Zen author Joan Halifax sums up Shawna Carol's impressive ability to make contact with her listeners thusly: "All who hear (Shawna) cannot help but be moved by her gift, Of dozens of Goddess CDs received for review by Spirit of Change we truly feel this is one of-if not the best-bar none!"

Craig Collins

Wholeness incompasses Feminine in Masculine as well
The Sacred Goddess in Woman is also very important in Man as well. The Magdeline archetype touches all of us and her re-emergence in music, art, and literature is a true hope for our World. The Goddess Chant evokes all that is powerful in the feminine... I just love it!

Vicky

Really good. very refreshing to listen to.
All the music on the CD is good.
Love to meditate to "I am the Goddess"

Between the Worlds

Full of love and sacred energy
I've had the pleasure of dancing to many of these songs at sacred circle dance gatherings over the last few years. This album needs no reviews, no introductions - the music sings for itself. In beauty, power, and truth, these chants are truly a blessing, a gift from the abundant soul of the universe.

Marvelous to wake up to!
I use Shawna's CD Goddess Chant: Sacred Pleasure as my wake up call. What a pleasure to wake up to soothing music in place of being blasted out of sleep by an alarm. I love the positive start it gives my day and I love the music.
