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.

Connecting With The Shamanic Dimensions of Pregnancy

Connecting With The Shamanic Dimensions of Pregnancy

Hi Jane, Thank you so much for the amazing workshop you held for us the other week.
I walked away feeling that I had really shifted into the spiritual essence of the pregnancy.        
Since then I have felt like I have been in a really beautiful headspace having shifted the remaining fears that were lingering.
I wish every pregnant mum to be could do your class. It would give birth a completely different meaning. Shifting it from medical to naturally spiritual and a beautiful journey.
Thank You So Much

Thank you so much for your time and energy at Avalon a few weeks ago.  
I recently birthed my little girl at home and whilst I had a fantastic experience I felt I was missing something and had begun seeking answers when the opportunity to do your workshop came along.  I feel that life clearly gives us what we need, when we need it - and suddenly I was clear to come for the day.  
Your workshop was absolutely amazing and filled in the gaps for me - I was missing something!  Birth is designed to be a spiritual experience, but like anything we need to work through so much history and be in tune with ourselves, our mothers and sisters, and in harmony with the earth.  I am really excited about learning more and clearing and empowering myself for my next birth, and understanding how we as women can regain the power and mystery designed to come to us with birth, so that I can help spread the word.  
It's very important work you are doing.
On another note, I was immensely impressed with the level of research and energy you put into the Avalon workshop.  I have attended and facilitated many workshops but never one as compelling as yours.  I believe all birthing women - in fact, all women, should complete it as compulsory.  Your workshop helped me understand just how important birth is, and what it can be.  I wish I had done your workshop rather than the mountain of pre-birth reading I completed - it really made the whole thing make sense.  I can't wait to complete an extended program with you and am only disappointed you won't start till November.
It's exciting and empowering stuff and I wish I could do it tomorrow!  
Thank you so much for your time, I really do believe that our one day together, will change my life significantly and there aren't many one day workshops that can make that claim.

" I came into the Shamanic Midwifery course without expectations. I had been to previous birth education courses and had read several books in preparation for the birth of my first baby, but this day workshop took my experience of pregnancy and the connection to my unborn baby to a new level. I was able to safely express even my most subconscious fears of birth and beyond and let them go, setting myself free to enjoy and celebrate this pregnancy even more than before! Thank you Jane and all the girls who helped to create a circle of the divine feminine, a sacred safe space and a journey into our inner core that was fun, poignant and unforgettable"
