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.

SSM1 Dark Moon Gathering 2010

As the moon wanes, SSM1 prepares to go on retreat to journey deeply into the dark. We will gather this weekend and as Shamanic Midwives will ceremonially re-enact the descent and ascent of Inanna to and from the Underworld. This will be a personal as well as a collective experience, as we do our magick for all our relations.
Blessings to the brave and courageous women that pave the way reclaiming their true selves.
