The Spooky Tour gave a magical insight into the mysterious history of Singapore and particularly Dempsey Hill with the extra dash of the divine by Dani, expanding my curiosity into the energy world. The highlight being sat under the moon, surrounded by offerings to Samhain, with wine and cheese to hand with Dani sharing her in-depth insight into how Halloween is celebrated around the world. I wouldn’t hesitate to join one of Jane’s Tours with Dani. Pure enlightenment.
The Spooky Halloween tour at Dempsey was the perfect mix of fascinating history and spooky stories. Under the bright full moon we learned the tragic history of the Fall of Singapore and the Indian Mutiny, all which occurred where we stood.
Dani described the energy of the area and the kinds of souls that still remain there and Pavla shared a range of stories and folklore about Halloween from the Malay, Indonesian and early Singaporean communities.
We ended the evening with wine and cheese learning from Dani about how to communicate and share offerings with spirits in the vicinity.
I highly recommend these collaborative tours between Dani and Jane’s Tours - they really offer a depth to the history that you can’t get anywhere else in Singapore!
Wellness Day in The Sanchaya Jan 2020
In January we curated a Wellness Day for our members on the island of Bintan at The Sanchaya. After a very successful event with Dani the previous year, we definitely wanted to have her back this year. The workshops throughout the day were programmed to leave members feeling like they were ready to make 2020 the best year ever. Dani and I discussed in depth what we could create for members that would be really special and we were willing to push boundaries with more ceremonial work as members the previous had really taken to her last workshop.
Dani closed our day with 2 rituals that I can only describe as incredibly moving. She started with a Decree Circle followed by a Lakota Anointing Ceremony. Everyone was in tears of joy and release by the end of her session and felt enveloped in this gigantic amount of love. We still have members to this day telling us that day changed their life. It really shifted something in all of us and was definitely an unforgettable memory.
In short, no matter the group, Dani will always find a way to make the participants feel extremely comfortable, open and understand every step of what they are doing. With her years of experience and vast knowledge, she can create the perfect workshop, ritual, ceremony or practice for your group that is truly transformational.
Conscious family split
Recently when our marriage ended, my husband and I committed to ‘separating well’ and ensuring the family foundation was protected and nourished. So when we made the big decision for me to also move back to our home country with the kids, we felt it important to mark all the changes with a ceremony to energetically separate and make new commitments to each other and the family as we moved on. We asked Dani to officiate this for us and she created something truly beautiful and memorable for all of us, with full involvement of the kids and witnessed by close friends. As she held us in ceremony, heartfelt words were spoken, tears were shed and laughs were had. It was so special, a true celebration and marking of the moment. Thanks Dani, it was an amazing way to enter unchartered territory feeling empowered and with love as a family in the midst of change.
Dani led my girlfriends and I in a magical blessingway ritual in preparation for the birth of my second child, and the journey I was to embark on as a mother of two.
The blessingway was an experience none of us had had before. Dani was at the helm, leading us in meditations to bring us fully into presence awareness, and in guided shamanic journeying to connect with our female ancestors who had birthed before us. Through these journeys, my girlfriends and I were able to share our truest, highest and most heartfelt blessings to me and the baby. It was a raw and deeply profound spiritual experience. Eventhough we were all in lockdown at the time, with the blessing taking place over Zoom, we all still felt a deep connection to one another, and to the baby, and many tears were shared. I felt seen. I felt loved. And so did the little one in utero. Thank you, Dani for this magical experience that I will never forget. I have no doubt that this blessing played a huge role in weaving and creating the beautiful and quick birth my heart desired.
Field of Possibilities Event Jan 2019
To kick start the year, we wanted to do a unique and special goal setting workshop for our members in Singapore. Dani put together a 3 hour workshop which involved meditation, journaling, shamanic journeying and a fire ritual to release our fears. I was a bit unsure at first if everyone would participate but every person that attended put all of themselves into it. Dani has a really great way of explaining everything in a scientific, spiritual and practical way that allows everyone to relate and understand the process. She is excellent at communicating with such openness that made everyone feel comfortable to share their goals, their fears and was a really beautiful and powerful way to start the year. A lot of our members then followed on to take some of Dani’s courses for a deeper dive into her work, including myself. I had unlocked a fear that morning that I didn’t realise I held for 30 years. Life changing!
Vow Renewal Ritual for 18th Wedding Anniversary
I want to share that working with Dani as our facilitator was magical. She knew exactly what we wanted for our 18thwedding anniversary of marriage. We were surrounded by all our best friends and family on Zoom. She was there guiding it with her beautiful presence, very attuned to the energy. We did a beautiful meditation to attune us energetically as a group and to the Universe. We did a Hand-Fasting ritual as a symbolic renewal of our choice for each other. She led a blessing with Hebrew mantra which was very powerful for us and the group as we are Jewish. She had the whole audience involved in a very gentle and respectful way, so no one felt intimidated by this spiritual approach. They all knew what they were coming for. Everyone wore white, we were all grounded sitting on our floors around the world, and it was just magical, down to earth, basic and deeply spiritual. We felt so deeply blessed.
And the best part is that Dani involved our kids to be part of it. She guided them to anoint our chakras with oil as we were blessed by the group. They were so excited to have a role to play in this ceremony with us the parents; to be present in our newly vowed marriage, which is something so unique and I could never have asked for something better.
Dani came up with so many beautiful ideas that we picked them together to create this beautiful synchronicity and meaning for this special day for us.
I am forever grateful to her. Every time I am in her presence it’s a blessing. Every time we learn something new. Our eyes, our minds, our souls and our hearts open, expand and grow. We have done so many things with Dani, from her meditation course to shamanic journey to her New Moon Lodge, that we see her as part of our global family forever. Thank you so much from me, my husband and our four boys.
I had the honour and pleasure of being invited to the pre-birth blessing for my daughter and unborn grandson. Dani led this beautiful ceremony. The meditation transcended me to a different plane where I felt the strength and love of my ancestors. I blessed my daughter with a love so deep and so strong for her to carry through not only to her sons but for her grandchildren and great grandchildren. I saw my grandson so happy and content, radiating love, constancy and strength. I blessed him with strength of spirit, a forgiving heart and a love for all of God’s creation. Thank you Dani for facilitating this beautiful blessing rite. It is truly awesome to start one’s journey in the world with tremendous intercession and invocation from people who love you.
"Professional yet intimate and friendly, Jane's tour of Bukit Brown cemetery along with Claire and Dani was sensational. I learnt so much about Singapore's past as well as understanding cultures from a new perspective. and the Full moon setting through the jungle was a huge added bonus.
I would definitely recommend."
"Had the pleasure to attend a walking tour at Bukit Brown Cemetery, guided by Jane, Dani and Claire.The passion and knowledge with which the guides talked about Singapore culture, WWII and the cultural as well as religious practises were spell binding. Add the extra ordinary beauty of the jungle setting and its pure magic. If you have the opportunity to go on one of Jane’s walking tours (co-curated with Dani), you will not be disappointed."
"Joined Jane and Dani's special Halloween tour. Was really great evening. Enjoyed the history, lore and the special “guests” at the end!"
