About Melanie

Melanie Swan, Author and Shaman

Melanie helps women to come home to their true nature by embodying the multi-faceted menstrual cycle, healing multi-dimensional trauma & co-creating with the divine through the portal of the Womb.

Melanie Swan is an internationally renowned expert in the menstrual cycle and working with the consciousness of The Womb.

She hosts The Sacred Womb Podcast, which has received over 100,000 downloads to date, and founded The Womb Medicine Woman Training®, which she ran for 7 years.

She’s an experienced Multi-dimensional Trauma Therapist, and has worked with thousands of people across cultures, both 1:1 and in groups for 20 years.

Before becoming a trauma and womb specialist, Melanie worked in marketing and as a Dramatherapist. She spent a fabulous few years training with her dear friend Bethlehem, a grounded Medicine Man who helped her to remember how to walk in beauty.

She’s currently writing her first book The Sacred Womb, which is, at its core, a handbook for the empowerment of womankind. It redirects women from looking outside of themselves for their truth, to a re-Source within that is divinely designed. The Womb. Due to be available in late 2024.

With thanks to…

My work has evolved with the help, support and influence of some key people and their bodies of work. They include;

Body-centered psychotherapy, The Comprehensive Resource Model, Somatic Experiencing, Shamanic Healing – the oldest healing modality on Earth, the life changing information and healing protocols of Anthony William; Medical Medium, Jayson Gaddis; The Relationship School, Christian Pankhurst; Heart IQ, Arnold Mindell; Process Oriented Therapy, Irvine Yalom; Group Psychotherapy.

A special thanks also to the power animals, guides and angels that suppory me and my work every single day, and my dear, sweet, loving friends Bethlehem and Sophia – who now walk the blue road of Spirit.

It’s a privilege to have birthed this resource, and I’m thankful for the support of some very insightful Medicine friends, and of course The Great Mother. The foundations of this site were birthed partly in Chiang Mai, Thailand in the spring of 2013, and partly whilst staying in my homeland of England, during the Autumn/Winter of 2014 in Devon.

This space has, and continues to be an expansive learning and loving process for me. I hope it is of use to you.

May we all inspire and empower each other.

With love,
