"This simple, powerful and beautiful technique was originally called Peyote Stitch beading. Out of respect for the traditional owners of this old craft we call it brick stitch, as we do not possess the knowledge and do not practise the ceremonies that originally came with this stitch. The small glass beads are all said to have a spirit, and as we bead we connect to the spirit of these beads, allowing us to create patterns of meaning. The patterns come from the heart, not a piece of paper or someone else’s design. The lesson in the beading is to let go of wanting your bead work to look a particular way, and trust in the process that unfolds bead by bead. When we let go, something incredible happens...Trust your intuition, the feminine, the deep well of creativity within to help you explore and create." Jane A.

I heard the call of the drum and followed it in to a circle of women, medicine and healing. Sage Drums has been a blessing in my life. To be able to connect with amazing people through drumming, song and ceremony has been a powerful gift. I am so grateful and feel all the richer for my experiences" Eve Howard Student '21-'22
"As someone who was new to the idea of the Medicine Wheel, I joined the course with the goal of making and learning to play the drum. But I got so much more out of it. I met an amazing group of women who I learnt from. Jane's approach to teaching was authentic and gentle and encompassed different people's level of experience. I would highly recommend the course or a drum making workshop." Jenny O'Connell Student '21-'22
"Thank you so much Jane for sharing your knowledge, if anyone has a thought to join this course I highly recommend it, for me it was a dream to make my own drum and learn to be one with it for my own healing. It has been a journey and when I wasn't doing the work I found in some way the lessons where presenting themselves. Jane wasn't a teacher but a guiding light without judgement allowing each and everyone of the beautiful women to discover our own path, knowing Jane was there to gently guide us, being with us in our discoveries, hearing our stories. The workshops where great but the weekend together and drumming was powerful and healing. Thank you to each of the beautiful women and Jane for this journey. This poem reminds me of you Jane. A Medicine Woman's Prayer. I will not rescue you. For you are not powerless. I will not fix you. For you are not broken. I will not heal you. For I see you,in you wholeness. I will walk you through the darkness, As you remember your light. Much love and gratitude Debbie xxx" Debbie Cleary 3/2/'22
"The gifts from the land, the sea, the hills the trees
The spirit of all that dwells on our Mama Earth
The healing power of Nature
The forests, the wood, the jungle, the bush, the desert and the seashore
There in dwells the magical essence of all that is
of all that gives
Medicine for sickness from the plants
Drums from the skins of our four legged friends
Drums that vibrate and sing and renew
Drums that open our hearts to the truth of our reason for Being
Drums that remind us to sing, and dance and have fun.
Drums that centre us and ground us and bring us into the moment
Drums that help us laugh again, cry and let go.
We are Grateful..."

"Good Morning Jane,
A million thank you's for a magnificent experience yesterday.
Totally loved it, (George too). Great learning tool for discovering our inner greatness... and so many other amazing wonders... Truly wish to attend a drum making workshop in next year or so. Regards, Namaste, Ximena." March 2020
" Over the past twenty years I have had the pleasure and privilege of being part of women's and medicine drum circles which Jane has facilitated. A loving, kind and sweet soul, guide and teacher is Jane. I always feel supported and nourished from these powerful experiences. I went to a medicine drum making retreat on Bruny Island in Jan 2020 which Jane ran. What a special and sacred experience and now I have a beautiful kangaroo medicine drum to continue using for healing and connection with nature.
So grateful for these experiences and all I have learnt through song and drum! " Tania, February 2020
