Shamanic Womancraft is a method of intentional engagement with a woman’s transformative life journey, using the shamanic perspective’s vision, tools, and skills. It recognizes the interconnectedness of all things and provides a guiding map to access inner and outer worlds for growth, healing, love, and peace.

This method was developed by Jane Hardwicke Collins, a renown midwife, teacher and leader, who created the School of Shamanic Womancraft which offers training and initiations for Women. There are now other mentors who share this body of work.

The Shamanic Journey is an inner journey. As a woman journeys through her life, during her incarnation on the earth plane this time around, she encounters many a shamanic journeys. These are the opportunities for transformation and development of her being. Menstruation, pregnancy, birth, and menopause are shamanic journeys.

The word ‘Womancraft’ can be seen as the original perspective of Midwifery, the practice, art and science of being a midwife. To midwife is to facilitate, to assist someone’s learning through the Maieutic method (later called the Socratic method).

This means to help and to guide the person to discover their own inner knowing through asking questions and ‘holding the space’ for them to travel within to do this. Shamanic Womancraft creates the opportunity for women to find within themselves the skills and abilities needed to facilitate transformation for others on their journeys.

The shamanic craftswoman guides the woman through the experiences of menstruation, pregnancy, birth, mothering and menopause helping her see the relevance of what happens and the lessons and gifts of the issues and situations that arise for her.

The Shamanic Womancraft sessions are unique and will support any woman wishing to understand herself more deeply, connect into the magic of womanhood, and be guided through the mysteries of life.
