Shamanic Womancraft is the art of facilitating transformation.
The School of Shamanic Womancraft creates the opportunity for women to find within themselves the skills and abilities needed to facilitate transformation for others on their journeys.
Womancraft can be seen as was the original perspective of Midwifery, the practice, art and science of being a midwife. To midwife is to facilitate, to assist someone’s learning through the Maieutic method (later called the Socratic method), this means to help and to guide the person to discover their own inner knowing through asking questions and ‘holding the space’ for them to travel within to do this.
Shamanic describes the inner and outer, multi dimensional spaces (called the lower, middle and upper worlds) that exist within and around us that the shaman journeys to and within. The worlds or realms of the shaman are both actual and metaphoric and are accessible by everyone. The Shamanic Journey is an inner journey.
As a woman journeys through her life, during her incarnation on the earth plane this time around, she encounters many a shamanic journey. These are the opportunities for transformation and development of her being. Menstruation, pregnancy, birth, and menopause are shamanic journeys. A woman travels deeply during these times into her inner world which reflects the landscape of the shamanic realms. She meets her fears, her obstacles and her deep inner knowing in her lower world, she plays out different scenarios in her middle world, connecting with what is and she meets her extraordinary strength, wisdom and available guidance in her upper world.
