Licensed Art of Feminine Presence teacher
Art of Feminine Presence
With over 5 decades of life experiences, Jane now seeks a truly feminine approach to conducting business and her life in general. Her belief is that authentic connection and collaboration are the keys that enable greater joy and a much larger abundance for all.
Jane has studied and worked in international development for more than a decade. She had the honor to design and implement community development programs while living in Ethiopia, Malawi and Nepal. Later she completed her MPA in international development. She enjoyed being a stay at home mom for many years while she took on leadership roles in community organizations, operated a home day care and started and directed her fair trade business of 12 years, that supports mostly female artisans in Nepal. Her business is called Didi Bahini, meaning “sisters” in Nepalese.
The global suffering of women has left a very strong impression on Jane. Constantly seeking solutions to help women step into their innate power has brought her to a new stage. She has a burning passion to build a global collaborative program to empower women through ethical business. This would connect suppliers in developing countries with retailers in the west. As a stepping stone to realize this dream, Jane is currently both a student and teacher of The Art of Feminine Presence, a Denver based program that helps women who want to step up both personally and through their businesses, to make a bigger impact by being SEEN, and HEARD so that they can inspire CHANGE. She is currently a Level 1 & 2 teacher and offers classes and workshops in Ottawa and Gatineau. She is also busy designing an online program, incorporating many of these powerful and simple practices, to develop women’s leadership in the retail sector.
In the last couple of years, Jane has become much more aware that being an entrepreneur is one of the most challenging and beautiful spiritual paths you can be on. She is happy to have the opportunity to speak to you more about how this has unfolded for her in her life.
