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.

Opening Gathering, SSM2 Four Seasons Journey

The Opening Gathering of the 4 Seasons Journey of SSM2 was held in late October, deep in the forests, high on a hill, near Mullumbimby, NSW, under a full moon.

We sat in circle, created sacred space, were graced by many bats and owls, made drums and connected with our guides, teachers and power animals.

This year long program is graced by three apprentices from SSM1 and ten women from around Australia.

Following this Opening Gathering, the students now prepare for the Full Moon Gathering where they will meet the Shamanic Midwife as healer. This time will also include attending Pregnancy the Inner Journey and Moonsong Workshops to deepen their experience of the cycles of a woman's life and their own personal journey. Healer Heal Thyself is one of the fundamental aspects of the SSM, the guide must know the territory.

The next year long School of Shamanic Midwifery program (Four Seasons Journey 2012) starts in November 2011.
