“Moonsong” was the first workshop I attended with Jane. It was a life changing experience: sitting in a circle of women, surrounded by the many faces of the Goddess, listening to the beautiful truth of feminine mysteries was like facing my real nature, re-membering who I was and the ancestral bloodline I belong to. My life was never the same after attending Moonsong: this new woman emerged from underneath my skin and she led me through two amazing births and towards the mother I am today. It was clearly all part of the path. I only wish all women in the world could enjoy Moonsong and Jane’s wisdom.
A one day workshop for women, pregnant or planning to be, and birthworkers.
This workshop focuses on the shamanic dimensions of pregnancy, in other words: what lay beneath…
With prior preparation, contemplating our life experiences, we will do some shamanic processes to understand the origins of our beliefs, attitudes and fears around birth, seeing the connection between how we were born, our menarche (first period) and the stories about the women in our family, as well as any experiences of pregnancy and giving birth we have had so far.
Then a Letting Go of Fear process and fire ritual and a shamanic drum journey to meet the baby, soul baby or Inner Goddess, to seek guidance, clarity, information etc.

As Jane says, what happens in the circle stays in the circle, so it is hard to talk in specifics about what it was that I personally got out of this workshop. Let me just say in a general way that fans of Ten Moons will love this one-day workshop. It is a great way to reconnect with the book’s message: that the births you mother into this world are profoundly shaped by the way you were birthed, and it is up to you to know that story, work with it, and change it where it is no longer working for you. More than just an intellectual message, this workshop offers transformative activities – such as fire and drumming rituals – that allow you to let go of fears and connect with your baby and birthing powers. This is a fantastic experience for women who are expecting, planning a pregnancy or working through past births. And it is not just for birthing mothers: this is a powerful experience for any woman interested in reconnecting with the feminine experience of creativity. Jane’s blend of personal experience, years of activity in natural birth and woman craft, and shamanic perspectives makes her teaching truly unique.
