She walks with western credentials and a lifetime of mystical experiences that inform her personal and professional life. Jane is passionate about experiential work and is a practitioner who believes in the healing potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness. Whether in ceremony, in therapy sessions or facilitating holotropic breathwork, she is grateful for the opportunity to be present for people and ‘bear’ witness in their awakening to themselves. Her work is and has always been to be in service to healing.
Jane’s western training includes a Masters in Counselling Psychology, a Bachelor of Science, and certifications in Holotropic Breathwork, Life Skills Coaching, Addiction Counselling, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Reiki III, and Internal Family Systems therapy.
Since Jane was a young child, she has experienced life with the awareness of spiritual (non- physical) dimensions and realms. Jane experienced deep connections with spirit and the healing potential of Indigenous ceremonies in a Sweatlodge in 1986 and through her call to apprentice with a shaman in Africa in 1991. In 1993 she had her first experience with holotropic breathwork at a retreat where she met Stan and Christina Grof. It was here where she connected with the power of non-ordinary states, began training with Stan and Christina to facilitate holotropic breathwork and started her apprenticeship with Dr. Ingrid Pacey. That same year, Jane was welcomed into a Native American Church ceremony as well as a Sundance and has continued these spiritual practices since.
Jane has facilitated hundreds of holotropic breathwork group workshops and remains very passionate about offering opportunities for individuals to experience this powerful work.
