The Shakers were a group of people lead by Jane and James Wardley. They created a small group that used the techniques of Quaker meetings, but their silent meditation was often interrupted by Mother Jane’srevelations. She would walk back and forth trembling, she claimed she heard the word of God. Due to the dancing and crying out in strange tongues they became known as the Shaking Quakers.
