Song Of The Soul
Song of the Soul invites you to a soul-level encounter. Music has the ability to proclaim the soul's language beyond what mere words can speak. That's what we seek as we invite our guests to share their Song of the Soul. You will hear the music that has charted the steps of their spiritual journey, that has provided a touchstone in the soul's dark night, and sung the hearts awe and joy when come to the Light. As you listen to Song of the Soul, you are both witness and companion to our guest's spiritual path and sacred testimony.

Song of the Soul guests provide about 25 minutes of the music that speaks of their spiritual path, beliefs or journey, and Mark Helpsmeet explores with them the relevance and meaning of this music to their experience. Some guests are musicians, perhaps sharing their own music, but most guests are simply sharing music they've been impacted by, written and performed by others.

The theme song for this program is by Cris Williamson and is called Song of the Soul. Please check out the wealth of great music Cris has gifted to the world.

Have been a Cris Williamson fan for over 30 years--fell in love to her music. This is the first time I've heard an interview with her focused on the spiritual aspects of her music--and it has deepened my appreciation for the spirit from which she lives and composes. Thanks for this in-depth and sensitive interview--and the choice of her songs.

Not sure how I missed this the first time it aired. Isn't Cris a supreme gift to this world? Our cassette tape of Changer and the Changed has gone around many times over the years. Thanks for having her and bringing us your pleasant conversation with her.
