TESTIMONIALS

I am very blessed to have been part of the 4 Seasons journey.  It opened a door & when I stepped through it felt like I had arrived home.  I was amazed at how all was new to me but deep down I knew I was remembering & relearning something that’s part of my very existence.  Being held in a sacred circle of non-judgment, unconditional love & acceptance while pealing back layers of woundings & discovery truths & mysteries is a gift all women should experience.

Learning why I do things I do, how to make peace & forgive myself, and love myself unconditionally was a life changing experience.  Rediscovering the knowledge of the cycles & how to be a Shamanic Craftswoman to myself & others is something I’m very passionate about now.  I’m thankful for Jane’s vision to facilitate such a place for learning & healing that’s so needed in today’s culture.

Love,

Undertaking the four seasons journey and receiving so many profound insights was literally a life changing experience for me. I feel as though it was a process of coming home to myself, to my heart’s deepest desires and to that place inside me that is connected and timeless. This has had so many flow on effects into my daily life and I am far more able to see and feel the Divine Feminine in all I experience. For me, this makes my life experience more meaningful and fulfilling.

What I have loved so much is that it is me doing the ‘work’, not someone else doing it for me. Jane is a wise and compassionate teacher who facilitates by offering the tools and experience for each of us to draw upon in order to determine and manifest our own transformation.

My heart was pounding, my stomach full of butterflies, and my soul singing as I stepped into the lush red tent at the Opening Gathering of the 4SJ2012. The butterflies were well deserved… This is not a journey for the faint of heart. This is not a journey of mere fancy. It is a Warrioress’ journey of the soul… Challenging, loving, confronting, gentle, deeply nurturing and wild.  

 

The circle we have created is strong. The faces, all new to me at the beginning, now mark my dreams and travel my days. Voices of wisdom, compassion, bravery and love fill my ears, and mine is there too. These women all, I feel blessed to call my Sisters. We have held, heard, healed and loved each other, through laughter and tears. We have opened our Selves and spoken our truths.

 

As an ecologist, I watch the ever shrinking wild spaces. I understand the depths of the peril of lost wilderness. This a world where the wilderness of woman too, is ever narrowed, sanitised, apologised away. The great gift of the 4SJ is that it is a rare space where wildness is allowed to grow, where the old ways of learning are remembered, where the gifts of our passages of life are honoured and where we can reclaim our wholeness. This is a space where the Wild Self may sound her call, be heard, and come home.

 

I have ridden the earth song of Jane’s horse drum to the depths and heights. I have learned how to fly and how to return. I have found lost wholeness. I have found my song…. And yet more still, my journey continues…

How can I even start to describe this journey? 

 

Imagine what it would feel like to meet long lost loved ones and to know that they are all a part of you. Then mix that feeling with a bit of internal turmoil followed by amazing clarity. Imagine sitting together in circle with sisters you’ve always longed for.  Imagine connecting with the most hidden aspects of yourself and of the web that involves us all. Try imagining what that would feel like, smell like, taste like aligning  or re- aligning ourselves with our Great Mother Earth and feeling that the Universe is inside us. Imagine crying tears of pain and joy. Imagine the pleasure and ecstasy found in birth. Imagine the fear and excitement of surrendering our bodies and our minds to the unknown. Imagine living life as magic and making magic alive. Imagine.

 

To me, that is the 4SJ in a nutshell.

Thank you Jane for the amazing 4 seasons journey that you have gifted me, and the world with. It is such an honour to have been in that space for a year, to have been so deeply held in that space. It is the holding that allows us to dive into our depths, to claim our shadow, our exiled selves and to resurface intact. It is the holding that allows us to shine. The 4sj is a year of deep transformation, of healing and magic. You are an incredibly powerful woman who is healed and whole enough to empower each of us to come fully into ourselves. What a blessing! I give great thanks for this year, and for the journey I am on, sharing as much of my learning as I can.  I encourage all women to undertake the 4SJ.

When I began the 4 seasons journey, I was 38 weeks pregnant, and that open vulnerable space made going to an opening gathering for a yearlong course quite a daunting process. What I found from the moment I stepped out of the car was a warm hug, beautiful smile and an instant and deep connection to a group of women who have blessed me with their love and support.

 

My journey through Shamanic Womancraft has been profound. I have found my sisterhood. Deep, connected, full of joy and laughter and love. I have found my purpose, to hold the space for women’s experiences. I have found magic in circle. And I have been blessed to be able to bring my beautiful daughter on this journey and initiate her into women’s mysteries from birth. I am a very lucky woman.

 

The 4SJ has healed deep wounds and stripped away old patterns and illusions from my life. I feel like a different woman to the one who came to opening gathering. I know where I stand on this earth. I know I am powerful, capable, strong and ready to embrace every possibility of this beautiful life.

 

Jane has been the most amazing teacher that I have come across. Wise, funny and full of love. I am honoured to have learned so much from her and to continue to serve the school.

 

Quite simply, I feel profoundly changed after the 4SJ. I am a clear, vibrant, authentic self. I am so grateful.

We rediscovered Women’s’ Mysteries and integrated them into our daily lives. We healed hurts that had been reminding us to be healed for decades. We stayed in touch constantly between gatherings holding and supporting each other throughout our 4 season’s journey together. We revealed, mapped and brought into sustaining day to day reality the lives we longed to live. We became stronger. We became safe to become more loving to ourselves and to all those that walked and crossed our paths. And we brought all this back into our families and communities. We graduated bursting with creative force and the inner wisdom and tools to bring about shining hope for all our relations and Mother Earth. And we had so much fun. Jane holds a space that enables a trust and willingness, in circle and in our individual beings, to “know thyself” deeply. She shares generously her knowledge, wisdom, and practises. 4SJ is much more than a course. Jane‘s visionary ’ School’ has become a growing global community of Women and their families, skilled with the arts of the ancient wisdoms of Mother Earth and Women’s Mysteries and the ways and knowing to weave all of this into the 21st century. I give great thanks and love for being a part of this. Thank you, Jane. Your work is precious.

My journey with the maiden voyage of the School of Shamanic Womancraft was a powerful time of healing, connection and remembering which deepened and informed my experience as Woman, Mother, Healer and Birth Attendant in so many ways and for which I will always feel so grateful. A beautiful blend of rich, wise teachings held within a safe, joyous and empowering container of sisterhood. I highly recommend this juicy work to all women seeking the path of Truth, Love and Beauty.

Being in nature, sitting in circle, sharing with women, seeing, hearing and feeling parts of myself in the stories of the Women in my circle, connecting with who I am and what I am here to do.
The School of Shamanic Womancraft journey was the realisation of a long held dream, something I had yearned for but never found until the school was created. I wish every Woman the privilege of sharing in this experience. 
And now, being a teacher for the School of Shamanic Womancraft holding this space for Women from all around the globe, this work, this way has continued to guide me home to myself. The women of the school are my sisterhood and family and I believe more than ever that this work will heal the Earth.

When I arrived to the first weekend of the Shamanic Womancraft Course I felt like I had arrived home.  A deep sense of peace, safety and connectedness washed over me.  After experiencing a large range of retreats and sacred women’s business over the years, I felt like sitting in Jane’s circle was the first time I was experiencing open honest integrity, this was the real deal!!  Shamanic Womancraft brought together the many facets of myself that I have struggled at times to integrate in our modern culture today.  It assisted me in the confirmation of what I already know, gave me a deep sense of trust in my own innate wisdom and gave me some incredible tools with which to spread the message to the wider community.  Jane’s facilitation style is real, down to earth, and incredibly thorough with a fantastic structure and course notes, all of which are a strong resource for me to take the work out into the world.  The time together in true sisterhood was indescribably powerful to my life. As I was pregnant with my first child during our time together, I was fortunate enough to have the wisdom of many mothers by my side.

 

Thank you to the women I shared the journey with, you will travel in my heart always and a very special thank you to our Darling Jane for putting your heart out on the line and leading the way!!!
