The School of Shamanic Midwifery (SSM) is a Women’s Mysteries School for midwives and doulas, a gathering of wise women, a year long Earth based ‘religious’ experience. It will awaken in you a deeper connection to the cycles - the way of life - and enable in you a range of ancient and traditional skills and tools to serve women and the birth process. The School of Shamanic Midwifery is based in Australia and is given and co-ordinated by Jane Hardwicke Collings, Homebirth Midwife, Mother, Grandmother. Jane has apprenticed with many great teachers – Maggie Lecky Thompson, Blackbear James Harvey and the late Jeannine Parvati Baker. She brings the experience of 25 years of homebirths and shamanic practice together and, as requested, presents what she has learnt and commits to helping facilitate those who are interested on their journey toward being Shamanic Midwives.
Jane Hardwicke Collings is an independent midwife from Australia, who has been attending homebirths since 1984.
She is herself a homebirth mother, a grandmother and a teacher of the Women's Mysteries.
She gives workshops called "Moonsong" - about the ancient wisdom of the cycles and "Pregnancy - The Inner Journey".
She is author of "Ten Moons - the Spiritual journey of Pregnancy, Preparation for Natural Birth"
and "Thirteen Moons and Spinning Wheels" - the how to chart your menstrual cycle journal and handbook.
She is currently working on her forth coming book "Birthing With The Goddess".
