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).

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 Teacher of the Four Seasons Journey, Moonsong, Shamanic Dimensions of Pregnancy, and Becoming – A Woman workshops, 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.

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.
