Founder of the School of Shamanic Womancraft

Teacher of Four Seasons Journey, Connecting with the Shamanic Dimensions of Pregnancy, Moonsong, Becoming – A Woman, Autumn Woman Harvest Queen

My interest in bringing and offering this information is to help how I can in healing the wounded feminine and the wounded masculine of our patriarchal culture. My mission is to help women reclaim feminine knowledge and wisdom, to help heal birth, menarche, menstruation, menopause and death, for all my relations.

I represent three lineages:

Home birth Midwifery –  ancient wise woman practices passed down the generations that I learned from Maggie Lecky Thompson (Australia).

EarthSong (Boulder, Colorado, USA) Shamanic Teachings and Practices – that I learned from James Harvey (AKA BlackBear) and Cedar Barstow.

Shamanic Midwifery – the teachings and insights of the Late Jeannine Parvati Baker (USA).

Talulah was a part of the virgin group to do the work of the School of Shamanic Womancraft in 2009. She knew when her year was over that she was not done with the work, and began her apprenticeship the following year. Throughout her 3-year apprenticeship she began to dream into what she could offer the school and more ways to bring this work to more women. The idea of the Eight Seasons Journey was born.

The same program as the Four Seasons Journey spread out over two years. It has proved to be an amazing opportunity to live longer and deeper into the offerings of the program, while being less demanding on our home and work life in time away. The first circle is will come to a close in February 2017 the next 8SJ will begin April 2017.

For as long as I can remember I have had a passion and interest in women’s health and spirituality. I was blessed to sit in my first women’s circle at the age of 18 and many years and circles later I still feel inspired and deeply connected to the Feminine way.

My initiations as Mother through the pregnancies and births of my 4 children were profound spiritual awakenings, which continue to inform my life and work in many beautiful and powerful ways.

I am honoured to have received teachings from some of the wise women elders of the menstrual, fertility awareness and birthing worlds – Francesca Naish, Alexandra Pope, Jane Bennett and Jane Hardwicke Collings.

I have been a Birthkeeper (Doula) since 2000, working with pregnant women and their families through labour, birth and postpartum in both home and hospital settings.

I also have experience in supporting women through womb loss journeys of miscarriage, stillbirth and abortion.

As a menstrual educator, I offer teaching programs and circles for pre-menarche girls, teenagers and adult women exploring menarche, menstruation, natural fertility awareness and sexuality.

Sarah holds sacred space for women to reconnect to the women’s mysteries. She is a teacher of MoonSong workshops, which facilitate and support women to deepen their knowledge of the spiritual dimensions of our menstrual and life cycles, and the correlation between these cycles and the greater cosmic cycles of life/death/life (earth seasons/moon phases etc.)

Sarah brings her love of story telling and dance to her teaching, so that women have an active and embodied experience of this learning and remembering.

Sarah holds seasonal dance celebrations, monthly meetings in the Temple of She! and facilitates MoonSong workshops. Stories, drumming and sacred circles are important aspects of her work. She is also initiating a MoonDance workshop to ground the MoonSong teachings in our bodies and being.

Tina is a great connecter who brings a ray of sunshine to everyone she meets. She operates from the integrity of her heartspace allowing people to be who they truly be.

Providing women’s circles to honour the Divine Feminine, to help women embrace the ancient wisdoms and young girls move confidently through their Menarche rite of passage into womanhood is Tina Kirkham Smith’s passion.  All women leave these holistically healing circles with an energised sense of warmth, confidence, love and happiness and perhaps even a new best friend.

“To be in sacred circle with my daughter’s head resting on my lap was a perfect moment for me.  I feel so appreciative to you Tina for facilitating this sacred work with such grace and ease so that an important phase of my daughter’s life is now demystified and in such a safe and nurturing environment.  Blessed Be.” – Rachelle Rose xx

I work in service to women and the Goddess.

As a teacher of Becoming, I hold space for girls on the cusp of womanhood, and their mothers, so they can have this rite of passage supported, held with joy.

As mother to both a son and daughter, I know the importance of supporting them through their rites of passage in a healed way. Becoming – A Woman workshops are a way for mothers to support their daughters to womanhood from a healed place. It is so wonderful to witness the love and connection of mothers and daughters sitting together in circle.

As a 3rd year Four Seasons Journey apprentice of the School of Shamanic Womancraft and a Teacher of Becoming – A Woman, I bring my presence and skills to witnessing and supporting transformation.

I also run workshops, red tents and presented rituals and workshops at conferences and festivals and am dedicated to the sisterhood.
