I'm a woman, just like you.
Through my own challenges with womanhood, being a mother, a wife, navigating a divorce and health issues, I’ve found that the most honest healers are movement, the breath and interaction with the elements. I feel most supported by rocks and the roots of a tree; I feel most alive when the wind is whipping my hair and I’m dancing barefoot on the grass.
I believe in love, even though my heart has been broken a thousand times.
My version of love means kindness, honesty and truth. Love is showing up, standing for something and using your voice eloquently and powerfully to promote justice and peace. Love is hugging, listening and looking someone in the eyes as they pour their heart out to you. Love is my daughter, the most amazing person I know: dedicated, compassionate, kind and hilarious. When I watch how she is living her life, she's 26, I’m filled with hope for the future of this planet.
I love swimming in the ocean and sitting next to a fire, under the stars drinking whiskey. I love wearing black, being on a train or travelling somewhere new. I love chocolate. I love that all of my material possessions fit into four boxes. I love the reflections of a disco ball, and I love Prince with every wild bone in this body.
When I'm asked “What is it that you do?” there is one very simple answer “I do women’s work” I gather women to celebrate & grow, I guide women to reclaim their bodies and I tend women who have been initiated into motherhood supporting them as they navigate this new and precious time in life. My friends affectionately call me Mama Jayne because I'm a homemaker, tending the house, the heart and body with a grounded and nurturing energy. Being in the kitchen cooking nourishing food is where I thrive and there is always some kind of herbal tea brewing nearby.
During this past 3 years I’ve gathered large groups of women during the Spring and Autumn equinox, under the name 'Sisters Of The Wild' listening, learning and nurturing, I’ve found myself connecting deeply to their individual stories. The blood and bones of most conversations were that women want to be seen, they want to feel safe and grounded, for their stories to be heard. It’s when we are held in nature, without the distractions of modern living that a woman is able to truly hear herself and give voice to her heart.
Peace & Be Wild
