I have known Jane for 20 years, and have worked with her firstly as a student, later becoming a teaching apprentice and then a teacher of her work. With Jane’s permission, I adapted my own classes and practices through these teachings and techniques. She also opened the gate of my ancestral lineage and encouraged me to explore all parts of my spiritual heritage. At present, I am working with Jane as she councils me through a process of grief, loss, and acceptance. I am a member of her Sacred Council Circle as we navigate the challenges of our world; seeking healing and change as individuals, in our society as well as, on a global scale. She is a friend, mentor, and elder that I love.
