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.

Shamanic Midwifery Vision Quest 2010 - Video Montage from Melody

It is with great thanks to Jane that I offer a sharing of the Shamanic Midwifery Vision Quest 2010. After this deeply profound, fortifying and beautiful experience, I felt called to collate for our circle, images and sound of meaning. My intent was and is to shine back to this year's Shamanic Midwifery sisterhood the love and gratitude I feel for the journey we are taking, carving this new way in the road together. The montage below is an imagery interpretation of the Vision Quest week. Each image used to communicate the core of the Quest was chosen for its potency in reflecting both the individual and collective Shamanic Midwifery experience thus far. My hope is that those intending upon joining the Shamanic Midwifery circle in the future, as well as other interested folk, will also have a window into the magic that was the Quest.
Blessed Be.
