Jane spent most of her childhood wandering the countryside alone or on horseback getting to know the lie of the land,horseback getting to know the lie of the land, much of which has now been swallowed up and is under the houses and roads of Milton Keynes. In early adulthood when riding in a forest at dusk she had a mystical moment where everything became one and she has been searching for ways to find this place within nature and herself ever since. Pilgrimage and ritual/ceremony are a huge part of this search as both provide her with a safe container for a deep listening to occur, which may often lead to a change in perspective. A story, or quest, may emerge and following this thread she now finds that a previous lonesome task now involves other people and sometimes some far away places. Pilgrimages along rivers, or across them, are a particular passion as they can take us into another world and hold so much hidden wisdom from our ancestors who would have used them as we now use motorways and train stations to navigate and travel the land.
She now lives on the Somerset Devon Border and when not wandering the land and rivers, teaches art and so helps others to see things from another perspective. Jane has trained with the Sacred Trust and with Meredith Little of the Land of Lost Borders. She learned Eco Shamanism from Mandy Pullen and was introduced to the Way of Council, which she practises regularly, by Pippa Bondy. The Zoence Academy gave her a grounding in how to work with the energies of place and space within buildings and landscapes and she is frequently asked to work with those who have land that needs help.
