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.

Vision Quest, Four Seasons Journey 2011

Greetings this side of the Solstice.

The current School of Shamanic Midwifery Four Seasons Journey group of beautiful courageous women are deep in the lunar cycle following their Vision Quest. It's a bit like a BabyMoon, time to integrate and marvel over the magnificence of the process.

The Vision Quest was a deeply transformative experience for the women.
It rained, it shined and eagles soared above.

These Warrioress Priestesses are headed next to their Dark Moon Gathering, where we focus in on the dark moon energies, the cycle of transformation and the role of the shamanic midwife in all that.
