Jane Hardwicke Collings


Home Birth Midwife, Shaman, Shamanic Midwife

I see myself as an Agent of the Goddess, a Priestess at the altars of transformation. 

I carry 3 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 am a post menopausal mother and grandmother. I was an intensive care and operating theatre nurse, and a homebirth midwife for 30 years. Now my work focuses on teaching the Women’s Mysteries and writing about them. I give workshops on mother and daughter preparation for menstruation, the spiritual practice of menstruation, and the sacred and shamanic dimensions of pregnancy, birth and menopause. I founded and run The School of Shamanic Womancraft, an international Women’s Mystery School.
