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.

The Deepenings


The Deepenings 

"The Deepenings are a program exclusively for students and graduates of The School of Shamanic Midwifery, at this stage there are 3 per year. Their aim and purpose is to go deeper on subjects introduced during the Four Seasons Journey and for the women to go deeper within themselves on their personal journeys. Jane has invited her own teachers from across the decades as well as others, both Australian and International, who are working in related and complimentary fields to the practice of the shamanic midwife, to facilitate these weekend workshops."
