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 lies 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.
A one-day workshop for women seeking information about the menopause rite of passage, the life season of Maga, and how to make sense of it all in one’s own life.
After Mother, before Crone… is the time of the Maga – the Matriarch, the Enchantress, the Harvest Queen…
How do we harvest the richness of our lives in our Autumn life season?
We will explore the treasures of this season – the harvest, the joys and the responsibilities.
We will join together to reclaim this time in our lives for the gift it is for all our relations.

Peri-menopause for me has been a major life changing process through my 40’s. Jane’s Autumn Woman Harvest Queen workshop was a wonderful opportunity to dive deep into my own personal healing and to feel the support from the sharing with other women who are also in this powerful transition.
I love Jane’s grounded and knowledgable facilitation, her beautiful humour, and the deep holding and honouring she provides. I highly recommend all woman attend these workshops so as to heal past traumas and to step into her true power into menopause and beyond.
