Shamanism is defined as “a religious practice that involves a practitioner interacting with the spirit world through altered states of consciousness.” There are many shamanic dimensions that women can go through, from menarche, menstruation, pregnancy, birth, and menopausal experiences.

Joining me to talk about shamanic dimensions of pregnancy and birth is Jane Hardwicke Collings. Jane became a midwife at the age of 26, after witnessing how the hospital system treats women and babies during her time as a Registered Nurse. She was a homebirth midwife for 30 years along with having 4 children of her own. Jane works with women on the sacred and shamanic dimension of pregnancy, birth, mothering, and menopause.

In this episode, Jane shares how she was introduced to shamanism, what our red thread is, how to do shamanic healing during preconception and pregnancy, preparing for an orgasmic birth, and so much more.

 

Meet Our Podcast Guest:

Jane Hardwicke Collings is a post menopausal grandmother. She was an intensive care and operating theatre nurse, and then a homebirth midwife for 30 years. Now her work focuses on teaching the Women’s Mysteries and writing about them. She gives workshops on mother and daughter preparation for menstruation, the spiritual practice of menstruation, and the sacred and shamanic dimensions of pregnancy, birth and menopause. Jane has been fighting on the front line of women’s liberation in Australia for decades. Her work is liberation through feminine knowledge, blood mysteries, birth empowerment, rites of passage, and the sacred dimensions of pregnancy, birth and menopause.
