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).
Shamanic Ecologist. Mother. Woman of Wild Belonging. Dark Moon born and reclusive by nature. A lifelong journeyer of Wild places.
Re-membering our Wild deeply connected selves. Our Indigenous Belonging and Being Within the Living Earth.
Waking again to the Wild wonder of this magnificent World… Child-eyed, re-enchanted, poetic, embodied. Listening to the Language of the World. Seeing the quiet things. Singing the old songs… and Being sung.
Rewilding the Feminine… Woven together with All in a Blessed entanglement of co-becoming.
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.
Grace is passionate about reclaiming our experience as embodied and sacred, and creating safety in community – essentially restoring the sisterhood by ‘having each other’s backs’ as women.
She loves astrology, cycles, patterns and meaning-making! Grace has three clever children, aged 14, 11 and 9 and a degree in Theology.
Facilitator of rites of passage, Womb Awakening and Sacred Union, Women’s Circles and Temple, Labyrinth walks, Birth Into Being Teacher and Reiki Master/Teacher, Past Life Regression and Soul Journeying with the Divine Feminine through planets/asteroids in the astrology medicine wheel.

Cailleach has worked as a therapist with individuals, couples and groups for more than 35 years. Her passion is in peeling back the layers of the unconscious to enable us to intervene and change our world. In particular, she works hard to walk and work in the healed version of the Divine Feminine.
Cailleach has a counselling practice based in the Blue Mountains of NSW. She works face-to-face with individuals, couples and groups and also works online with women in many far-flung locations: providing counselling, mentoring and coaching sessions.
Cailleach also journeys regularly to Ireland and other Celtic lands where she explores the land and stories to find the Goddess and the ancient divine feminine.
She is a Maga Woman. She is Bone Woman of her tribe.
The work I do and the life I live is inspired and guided by the earth.
My curiosity to uncover the mystery of womanhood led me to the School of Shamanic Womancraft. Throughout my journey I have seen time and time again that as women we are as the earth. It is the re-connection to self that facilitates a re-connection to the earth.
And it is my passion to facilitate this re-connection and inspire a remembering of the old ways of being, living and doing.
With over 10 years’ experience working with children I have learned that they have open access to remembering and connection. I am passionate about maintaining, inspiring and cultivating these pathways to self-awareness and love for the earth in our next generation of elders.
I honour the Indigenous people of this land and their success in living harmoniously with the earth for tens of thousands of years.
To my work in the 4SJ, 8SJ and Maiden’s School of Magic I bring my passion for the old ways and combine it with my striving for a new paradigm of healed humans living harmoniously with the earth.

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.

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.

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.
