The ‘Becoming – A Woman’ Workshop Facilitation Training is based on Jane Hardwicke Collings’ Maiden and Mother circle work, gatherings for girls, pre-menarche (onset of menstruation) or just ‘started’, and their mothers, to demystify the menstrual cycle and to learn through information sharing and experiential processes about the physical and spiritual opportunities inherent in the female cycle. You may also have seen or read Jane’s book, Becoming A Woman – A Guide for Girls approaching Menstruation.
‘Becoming – A Woman’ Workshop Facilitation Training is an opportunity for interested women to learn the Shamanic Womancraft way of teaching this important, healing work to mothers and their daughters.
The training will be delivered on-site in group training sessions, where participants learn and practice the material, developing proficiency in their understanding and delivery of this potentially activating and healing content.
The training may be used as the basis for the teacher’s ongoing self-designed program or graduates may run the branded Becoming a Woman Workshop upon graduation according to the agreed guidelines.
Teachers will also need to be clear with the impact of their own personal experiences around their menarche and menstruation and have processed what it offers them for their own evolution and their role in teaching this vital, life-changing information. The training program will offer this opportunity.
The intention of this work is to prepare you as a Menstrual Educator, specifically in the spiritual and shamanic dimensions of the Women’s Mysteries.
To graduate, proficiency in delivery of the material and understanding of your own relationship to your menarche and menstruation must be achieved.
