I lost my son to murder through gun violence. I want to share with you how to deal with the current state of the world, your own personal grief, and the impact of gun violence on you and your loved ones. In this livestream I’ll share how to create and hold space for personal growth, expansion, love, and whatever else is showing up. We’ll work with some of my Canadian indigenous healing music for grief to shift our bodies, hearts and minds.
True empathy. Acceptance. Acknowledgement. Sometimes that’s all we need. As the structures of the world fall away so that our new way of being on Mother Earth can emerge, it’s important to have compassion and empathy for others, and at the same time if you are an empath or highly sensitive person, you also need to remember NOT to hold onto whatever feelings are flowing through you.
As a singer, songwriter and motivational speaker I’ve experienced enough writer’s block, resistance and stage fright over the years to know that it’s not a sign to stop – it’s a sign that it’s time to get out of my head, into my heart and body, and get into a state of acceptance and presence. Here’s what I know about being stuck and freeing yourself.
My song Grieve was inspired by what may well have been the very last beat my son produced. It was the last one he posted on his Instagram just 10 days before he was murdered. My elder told me my son’s higher purpose was to leave the planet with a bold message – gun violence awareness. Now, my song will carry Quinn’s spirit’s message, along with helping you to have some hope and healing on your own grief journeys.
Healing Song is a song I channeled for my son Quinn Taylor when he was 14, with my very first hand drum and my son’s 2 eagle feathers he’d been gifted by an elder and the elder’s apprentice for his incredible inner strength in the sweat lodge when he was about 9 years old. Some call it Quinn’s Healing Song or Brenda’s Healing Song, as it has spread like wildfire by countless other drummers and drum groups across Turtle Island because of its healing qualities.
Life brings unexpected turns to us all. What I’ve noticed is that when we have unexpected losses, or when we’re bridging into a new life in some way, it’s scary! It can feel like things are falling apart. Well, and the societal structures we live in really ARE falling apart, so this just creates a sort of pervasive feeling – especially for empaths – of things falling apart.
This hand drum healing song brings you into the sweet medicine of your own love for the loved ones you have lost, whether by death, a relationship ending, or any other reason. The song is also an invitation to a soft shedding, layer by layer, of the person you were before the loss, and the life you wish you could have had. At some point after your loss, you will feel life calling you. Answer that call by being kind to yourself, and following your soul’s prompts.
