SOUL ACTION

Awaken Your Dancer – Empower Your Soul – Embody Your Purpose in Life!


Many of us live with a sense that something is ‘missing’ – as if there is a void lurking beneath the surface of our lives that we can never quite fill. As a result, we can spend our lives endlessly seeking to fill that emptiness with more – more money, more possessions, more relationships. However, this is ultimately a fruitless quest because often what we are really seeking cannot be found ‘out there’ in the physical world for they are the lost parts of our soul – fragments that may have split off many years earlier.

Long recognised by shamans, such soul loss is a form of psychic fracturing that can come about as a result of trauma, dis-ease or a dysfunctional upbringing. Not only does soul loss leave a legacy of ongoing dysfunction, fatigue, illness and depression, but it can also disempower us by crippling our ability to heal and move forward.

Reclaiming and reintegrating the lost parts of the soul is therefore a crucial first step towards self-empowerment. Only then can we align ourselves with our soul’s purpose in order to manifest the abundance of our highest potential.

Meeting The Wild @ Cae Mabon
Aug 8 @ 4:00 pm – Aug 12 @ 2:30 pm

Meeting the Wild

A leaving-home rite of passage

at Cae Mabon, North Wales

for all ages

What was your experience of leaving home for the first time? Have you now as an adult found your true place in society? Or do you perhaps feel lost, cast adrift in your own life, confused and disorientated?

A pervasive sense of fear, doubt and confusion about who you are and where you are going can be a sign that you have missed out on one or more important rites of passage in your life. In traditional societies, significant transitions, such as leaving home, marrying and giving birth, are marked with rituals or ‘rites’ that support people to let go of their old identity and embrace the new. In modern secular society, however, many of us miss out on such rites. Without them we can end up stranded in a form of psychological no-man’s land, unable to fully release the old self and fearful and unprepared for what lies ahead. Our transition into mature adulthood therefore remains incomplete.
 
Meeting the Wild addresses the lack of rites in our culture by providing a powerful opportunity to revisit the important transitions in your life – in particular, your ‘leaving home story’. In the stunningly beautiful landscape of Cae Mabon in Wales, Caroline & Ben will share a powerful journey of self-discovery, an adventure into the mystery, to reclaim and integrate the parts of yourself that have been lost along the way. On this potent journey into the unknown, wild nature will be your guide, the drum beat will be your calling, and the spirit world will send its allies to your side. The tools will include dance, meditations, shamanic journeys, time in nature as vision-quest, ritual and ceremony, writing and creativity. We cannot know quite what form the journey will take. Only you can decide as you meet the dancer within you, choose to take each step, learn to trust in yourself and the support that lies all around in both the seen and unseen worlds.
 
Having completed your rite and assumed your new identity, you will be ready at last to re-enter society, with your heart opened, a renewed sense of connection and responsibility to all of life, and security in the knowledge of who you are and your true place in the world.
 
During the workshop, we will move through the following steps to explore our leaving-home story:

  • Creation & Curiosity Fascination as sacred medicine
  • Rebel or ArtistCreating the map, where am I going?
  • Lifting the veils of illusion - Where am I now?
  • Return to Essence - Who am I?
  • Unfolding the Mystery

Prerequisites: To attend this course, it is helpful if you have taken part in at least one Middle Earth Medicine weekend workshop, shamanic journey work or similar.

Come and remember, come and share offer to the play of life 

the rite of passage you forgot to do

because no one told you 

you could or it was necessary.

Tell yourself it did not matter? 

Deny yourself with shame,

hide yourself and tell yourself it simply is a game.

Afraid to show to others self-indulgent did they say?

What do we choose from our hearts to remember of that day?

Come remember yourself ,

the journey that’s not forgotten let it all become its dance,

be seen and celebrated

your life it is a ritual a re-membering, a tale to be told,

a forgotten being

a story of the heroine

or of a wounded soul

They always have their place, a story to unfold

the lives that they have touched that will never grow too old

An empowering rite of passage that can no longer be denied,

you know in your heart it matters 

and your life can be your pride!

Hunting & The Vision Walk – Czech Repub. @ SKALKA,
Aug 22 @ 5:00 pm – Aug 26 @ 3:00 pm

 

The shamanic world is as much about our connection with nature as working with our tools and practices.

‘Nature is the visible face of spirit.’

Spending time in nature for contemplation, focusing our intention on our walk, our deep listening and the observing of nature, we look for signs to assist us in our future offerings.

We can discover medicine songs, poetry, stories and the creative force that lies within each one of us. The hunt will take us through the night-time and into the days ahead. Visioning in our life and purpose!

We make the decision to find belief in a Spirituality of our own understanding, this is personal to each and very one of us. Accepting that nature is a power greater than ourselves, enables us to live in humility, with a deeper sense of gratitude for what we are fortunate enough to receive this life time. When we hand our will over to that greater power, we can find ourselves deeply humbled to what we are then able to receive.

A combination of deep ecstatic dance experiences, creativity, vision quest during day and night, seeking for the visions that will enhance our soul purpose and empower our lives. Much of our time will be spent alone and in silence, in nature during the day and the night.

A journey into the quiet, to meet with the visible face of spirit.

  Caroline has spent many days and hours in visioning and dreaming, her relationship to her own particular God/Spirit has helped her to step out of her own way and receive the guidance necessary to be able to make better decisions, to lessen the obsessive mind and to live more fully in service.

Intensive workshop of five days. A prerequisite for the Middle Earth Space Holder Training www.middleearthmedicine.com/training/

Prerequisites: open to anyone with or without previous experience.

The workshop is held in English with Czech translation
date: 22-26th August 2018 (22th from 18:00)

venue: SKALKA, Skalka u Doks 22, Czechia

price: 350 € (320 € if paid by 1st May)

 I can still feel the soft green silk between
my fingers- the process was so beautiful...
that it brought healing to those old, old stories.
What a gorgeous time we had. Catherine Wright

Caroline will guide you through the medium of ecstatic dance, shamanic journeys, meditations and enquiries, weaving the information gathered into the creation of your own Oracle. Once the  wisdom becomes apparent and with time in nature to journey deeper by yourself, connecting with your own spirit guides, you will begin to find the song that wishes to be sung through you and will weave that and all of the information into your own medicine bag.

A medicine bag is an item that spiritually represents the person who wears it and is carried for guidance, healing and protection. It contains objects that represent spiritual and healing experiences throughout our lives. This is a place to give totems a home close to your heart.

Making our own medicine bag is a process of illumination, to craft our own medicine container or oracle and understand the potency of what it is and what it carries. Creating this Oracle also gives us the opportunity to weave into it the shamans songs, sung from our heart but not in the ordinary way of singing. Our shifted state of consciousness in the 'singing sense' allow the songs to sing us.

There is no need in this work to be able to sing in the normal ways. Traditionally, it is important to create the medicine bag yourself, finding its reflection and its song inside you and in the face you show to the world.

The workshop includes ecstatic trance dance, time in nature, sharings, craft work and meditations.

For men and women any age or experience.

 

This 'medicine' is rooted in the drumbeat. It is about the softening of hearts, with the deepening of our connection to nature. It is soul retrieval at its simplest. It is work to heal, to move on, to empower ourselves, to live as fully as we are meant to, with nature as our ally and friend. To be that friend to the earth, to nature and the spirit world, by offering what is really needed without taking what is not ours.

Learning to accept the mantle of the hollow bone is the primary teaching of this work. You will learn how to shift your consciousness by moving out of the ego and rational mind for periods of time in order to become an empty vessel through which spirit can work. You will discover how to work with the divine power of the universe in a grounded and down-to-earth way to create healing for yourself and others. A prerequisite for future training's and apprenticeship in Middle Earth Medicine Ways. Once integrated, you can use this state to assist you on shamanic journeys, healing's, creative tasks and vision quests. Furthermore, the capacity to become a hollow bone yourself, will support you to marry your deepest soul purpose to your ego (the hands of your soul), which then acts in the world. This will radically empower you, enabling you to live from a place of true integrity and authenticity so that you can embody your passions and do the work you were brought here to do.

The combination of the Ancient Shamanic Practice, Ritual Theater, Movement Medicine,Arts and crafts, connection with Nature, Vision Quest, Storytelling, Healing, Caroline's life experience and other adventurous, magical ingredients makes this work a unique Medicine for healing, creation, finding/adding soul in all I am and do, in my role as a mother, partner, in my work as an artist. Caroline, as a teacher, never stands in the way of the teachings and this is the gift from the Hollow Bone Work.     Thank you,  Lies Van Hee.

Pre-requisites: Please take part in the Online Shamanic Journey course, levels 1&2 or a workshop that includes journeying.

Schloss Glarisegg is beautifully situated between forest, meadows, a brook with small waterfall and the shores of Lake Constance in the community of Steckborn (Switzerland). A place to fall in love, powerfully beautiful!

The medicine of Hollow Bone is delicious. The beauty of Cae Mabon is woven so deeply with the beauty of Caroline's offering. Hollow Bone opened me to my own magical nature. I was invited deep into unknown territory within myself and found strength and courage to journey in dark mystery to find treasures. Song. Dance. Drumming. Deep sharing. Connection with the deep greenness of nature. My work there has a tender place in my heart. And the artwork I created there still has a place in my home... calling me to remember my own gentle power. Catherine Wright

My two journeys with Hollow Bone Medicine have been both very healing and empowering. I could really dive in my medicine and gather my tools, my allies, receive guidance and meet and transform the inner obstacles and resistances that kept me from opening my wings. The venue deep in nature, the dance, the arts and crafts and creative moments and the journeying were an delicious blend to explore my deep nature and connection to soul. Caroline Carey and Ben Cole, and the assistants, were such good guides on this journey. The medicine is still working through me 3 years later ! Thank you  Virginie Rastello

"It's been an amazing experience to work with Caroline and Ben. Anyone who chooses to work with them will be in awe not only with what they will gain but also what they will unburden themselves with. Fantastic!” Fabian Ray

My presence in the Hollow Bone workshop was a subtle, gentle, very deep dive into my inner universe, where I met my guides, my inner characters, richness of my own medicine, my very unique and personal connections with Nature and Spirit. All that in strong, kind, wise holding of Caroline and the Dance, and support of a circle of others she/we created by sharings of what we discovered in our explorations. Thank you for this amazing and healing experience which reveberates into my daily life in many beautiful ways. Katerina Stejskalova

Magic Of Mandorla – Intensive @ Earth Spirit Center
Oct 7 @ 5:00 pm – Oct 12 @ 2:00 pm


It is known as one of the most powerful of (spiritual) experiences we can have in life. Mandorla is the place of poetry 'where the fire and the rose are one!' (Four Quartets, T.S. Eliot)

"Sometimes within our individual self and within the self of our worn-out society, there is no answer to conflict. There is, however, a way to stand within the center of the opposing forces. Conflict creates tremendous energy. If we leave out judgement then that 'energy' can become a vibration of light. Not always just a single light but many lights, sending out a vibration that is LOVE!"  — Caroline Carey
 

Knowing our purpose and how we might wish to offer it into the world means deeply acknowledging all that we are. In order to fully embrace our purpose, we must know our shadow, we must know the dreamer, we must befriend the inevitable death of all things. It is a way to embrace and accept who we are as a complete human being, who knows him/her self at a core level. Mandorla is the ancient symbol for wholeness. When we are in conflict we often do not feel whole. The key to transforming the destructive consequences of conflict into life-affirming outcomes lies in how we relate to the tension between opposites. When we can hold the tension within  ourselves and are aware of it, bearing the pain, beauty and terror that this brings, we bring the two opposing elements together, creating a space in which the split between the two can be resolved. We call this space the 'mandorla' – a word derived from 'almond' in Italian, which refers to the almond shape created when two circles overlap. The mandorla also known as the 'Vesica Piscis' is the sacred space of our soul work; when we stand in this place, we have the ability to transform what once was a curse into powerful medicine for the soul. Its energy is that of the Father Mother Principle in the
Divine Union, the mother of all forms and the Yin and Yang that has been known to us for decades.
This is an intensive workshop using the Mandorla process, deep enquiry and contemplation, befriending the inevitable death of all things and accepting the wise elder within us. You will have the opportunity to explore the conflict of meeting your core-wounds in relationship to your aspirations to discover authentic, integrated empowerment!

As human beings, we can exist on multiple planes of being; the one that we are usually most aware of, however, is the material world. By its nature, the material world is a place of duality – a place of opposites that we often experience as being in conflict with one another. Examples include heaven and earth, light and dark, masculine and feminine, loyalty and betrayal, to name but a few. The polarity between these opposites creates a fundamental tension at an evolutionary level that has the potential to be either profoundly destructive or powerfully generative and creative. The evidence of the destructive consequences of this tension lies all around us in the terrible scourges of war, inequality and conflict within and between individuals, groups and societies.
 
The key to transforming the destructive consequences of conflict into life-affirming outcomes lies in how we relate to the tension between opposites. When we can hold the tension within ourselves, bearing the pain, beauty and terror that this brings, we bring the two opposing elements together, creating a space in which the split between the two can be resolved.

Its energy is that of the Father Mother Principle in the Divine Union, the Mother of all Forms and the Yin and Yang that has been known to us for decades.
 
During this workshop, we will use the tools of dance, creativity, movement meditation and constellation-work to work with the magic of the mandorla. You will have the opportunity to explore some of the conflicts in your life, looking at how they play out in your life and how they affect you by embodying them in the dance. Then, with the support of the group and a constellation process held and guided by Caroline and the drum beat, you will enter the space of the mandorla, allowing it to work its magic upon you, bringing the riches of wisdom and new insights.
 
This work is open to all adults, regardless of gender, age, experience or ability. Whether you want to work with deep-rooted issues, or simply discover new insights, whether you are training in therapeutic studies, or a student of life's experiences, this work has something to offer you.

"Magic of Mandorla, amazing and deep work with Caroline Carey. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT to anyone who is studying to become a therapist or is one already but seeking the thread of connection in continuing your own development and work with your own process (which we so need when we work with others - right?).

The Shamans Oracle – Denmark @ Eagleroad,
Oct 26 @ 7:00 pm – Oct 28 @ 5:00 pm

The Shamans Oracle - a portal to the spirit world

Shamanic Journey is an ancient practice which connects us to the Spirit world. Along with Animism, it is the most time tested of all spiritual practices.

Often used during healing's, ecstatic dance, soul retrieval for gathering insights and wisdom, the shamanic journey offers us a way to seek guidance and support in our daily lives, connecting us to the Spirit World of power animals, guides, allies and guardians. You will learn how to access the 'other' worlds via 'axis mundis' and learn how to interact with what you find, to move with them, embodying the wisdom and information as well as a deeper access to spirit allies and guardians, teachers and power animals.

Our imagination becomes a portal to the spirit world, where we begin to perceive and connect with the other worlds, also using myth and inner guidance of the heart. We begin to imagine that non-ordinary reality and vision-in what we learn to expect to see, characteristically archetypal and nonlinear in nature. Our imagination gives the journey a container which can help us to interpret the messages we receive. This gives us a way to articulate the experience for ourselves, to write it and draw it, create art or poetry. We become story tellers of our own visions. We can then translate what we receive into our 'ordinary' reality, manifesting our dreams upon the earth.

We aim for this work to be body centered and in this particular gathering it will be used with dance, movement, as well as by sitting or lying down. We may find ourselves speaking or singing, telling stories and finding new poetry.

Within the journey we are experiencing an altered state of consciousness, that expands our awareness to many dimensions. Expanding our awareness to include not just our ordinary state, sometimes called the mundane state, but to understand on a much deeper level, the potentials held in the metaphoric, the artistic and the creative. We learn different ways of 'seeing' things, like the patterns in our lives, the habits, the ways of relating and within relationships. We learn to understand things in a whole new way, interpreting them to find a greater meaning for ourselves finding more passion, purpose, and authenticity.

The Oracle Of Dance – Cape Town, SA @ Kalk Bay Community Centre
Nov 15 @ 3:00 pm – Nov 18 @ 4:00 pm

The Oracle of Dance

Deep Immersion into the Heart Middle Earth Medicine

An intensive 4 day gathering.

Exploration of movement, voice, healing, expansion and spiritual connections. Using the teachings from the Middle Earth Medicine Wheel and the Mandorla process, we explore the ancient dance of ecstacy that is inherent within our own DNA.

The essence of this work is to marry our core wound with our aspirations to discover our authentic and fully integrated self, thus becoming truly empowered, allowing the soul and the ego to live in harmony. 

We will explore the use of movement to create the energy necessary for expanding our consciousness. This will also help us to open our heart to bring awareness to our emotional body and to induce healing of our voices. We will dance and work to create connection to repeating patterns of behaviour, that lead to more self awareness, thus relieving ourselves of negative influences that no longer serve us.

Ecstatic dance is a powerful experience, one that is connected to the shamanic journey, to visioning and to seeking wisdom and clarity in all our affairs. We learn how to use the dance and journey as a resource for living.

This gathering is equivalent to the ‘Mandorla Intensive’ requirement for the Middle Earth Medicine Training.

The Oracle of The Shapeshifter & Wounded Healer – Switzerland. @ Schloss Glarisegg, Switzerland
Mar 17 @ 5:00 pm – Mar 24 @ 2:00 pm

The Oracle of The Shapeshifter & Wounded Healer

Within this gathering we are guided via shamanic journeys and ecstatic dance to unveil our own shapeshifter, trusting in the art of presence, repetition and trance, we develop a stronger connection to our spirit guides - where we may find wisdom never moved or been spoken before.

Evoking the spirit of our guides within the creation of our own Oracle Field, we explore the potential we hold as a human being. Guided to explore parts of our self that have been or remain hidden, allows them into the light.

As a wounded healer we communicate with our spirit guides to offer through us and to become the medicine ma/women that wants to emerge.

Receiving the wisdom from your own embodied shapeshifter and the spirit allies that support you. Getting to know this quality as a powerful allie to support you in your own expressions, able to construct  ritual and follow the emergence of your spiritual nature.. Becoming an Oracle in order to deliver information and wisdom!

Ritual and ceremony magnifies our actions a hundred fold.

This 'medicine' is rooted in the drumbeat. It is about the softening of hearts, with the deepening of our connection to nature. It is soul retrieval at its simplest. It is work to heal, to move on, to empower ourselves, to live as fully as we are meant to, with nature as our ally and friend. To be that friend to the earth, to nature and the spirit world, by offering what is really needed without taking what is not ours.

What does the course involve?

The essence of this work is to marry our core wounds with our aspirations and allow the soul and the ego to live in harmony. Thus becoming truly empowered. The practice is to become the ‘edge walker,’ to be able to stand in the tension of opposites, to face conflict within ourselves as an opportunity for growth. We work with the 'Magic of Mandorla' as an exercise and a process of illumination. The tools we use are ecstatic dance, movement meditations, constellation work, individual and group process's, creativity, ritual theater and ceremony.

Learning to accept the mantle of the hollow bone is the primary teaching of this work. You will learn how to shift your consciousness by moving out of the ego and rational mind for periods of time in order to become an empty vessel through which spirit can work. You will discover how to work with the divine power of the universe in a grounded and down-to-earth way to create healing for yourself and others. A prerequisite for future training's and apprenticeship in Middle Earth Medicine Ways. Once integrated, you can use this state to assist you on shamanic journeys, healing's, creative tasks and vision quests. Furthermore, the capacity to become a hollow bone yourself, will support you to marry your deepest soul purpose to your ego (the hands of your soul), which then acts in the world. This will radically empower you, enabling you to live from a place of true integrity and authenticity so that you can embody your passions and do the work you were brought here to do.

To support you on this journey, Caroline, Ben & Elisabeth teach a variety of practices and approaches with shamanic journeying, soul retrieval, drumming, vision quests, medicine songs, ritual theatre, our connection to power animals and allies, and the crafting of tools, such as medicine bags, instruments and masks. The focus, ultimately, is on creating a clear channel and a strong enough presence to be able to stand fully within your own center and authority.

Engaging with this work demands that we inquire deeply into who we are, delving into our past, present and future to undertake the necessary work of clearing and cleansing all that lies in the way of stepping into the fullness of our essential selves. The more we carry out this work, the more aligned we become with Spirit and the journey of our Soul. This alignment represents true healing and integration – healing of our inner dancer and healing of the connections we have with others, with the environment, with our ancestors and with the universal web of the Divine Mystery.

The combination of the Ancient Shamanic Practice, Ritual Theater, Movement Medicine,Arts and crafts, connection with Nature, Vision Quest, Storytelling, Healing, Caroline's life experience and other adventurous, magical ingredients makes this work a unique Medicine for healing, creation, finding/adding soul in all I am and do, in my role as a mother, partner, in my work as an artist.

I could really dive in my medicine and gather my tools, my allies, receive guidance and meet and transform the inner obstacles and resistances that kept me from opening my wings. The venue deep in nature, the dance, the arts and crafts and creative moments and the journeying were an delicious blend to explore my deep nature and connection to soul. Caroline Carey and Ben Cole, and the assistants, were such good guides on this journey. The medicine is still working through me 3 years later ! Thank you  Virginie Rastello

"It's been an amazing experience to work with Caroline and Ben. Anyone who chooses to work with them will be in awe not only with what they will gain but also what they will unburden themselves with. Fantastic!” Fabian Ray

My presence in the Hollow Bone workshop was a subtle, gentle, very deep dive into my inner universe, where I met my guides, my inner characters, richness of my own medicine, my very unique and personal connections with Nature and Spirit. All that in strong, kind, wise holding of Caroline and the Dance, and support of a circle of others she/we created by sharings of what we discovered in our explorations. Thank you for this amazing and healing experience which reveberates into my daily life in many beautiful ways. Katerina Stejskalova

The Oracle Of Medicine @ Earth Spirit Center
Jun 1 @ 6:00 pm – Jun 6 @ 3:00 pm

Caroline will guide you through the medium of ecstatic dance, shamanic journeys, meditations and enquiries, to discover your own medicine man, medicine woman and weave this information into the creation of your own Oracle. Once the  wisdom becomes apparent and with time in nature to journey deeper by yourself, connecting with your own spirit guides, you will begin to find the song that wishes to be sung through you and will weave that and all of the information gathered into your own medicine bag.

A medicine bag is an item that spiritually represents the person who wears it and is carried for guidance, healing and protection. It contains objects that represent spiritual and healing experiences throughout our lives. This is a place to give totems a home close to your heart.

Making our own medicine bag is a process of illumination, to craft our own medicine container or oracle and understand the potency of what it is and what it carries. Creating this Oracle also gives us the opportunity to weave into it the shamans songs, sung from our heart but not in the ordinary way of singing. Our shifted state of consciousness in the 'singing sense' allow the songs to sing us.

There is no need in this work to be able to sing in the normal ways. Traditionally, it is important to create the medicine bag yourself, finding its reflection and its song inside you and in the face you show to the world.

The workshop includes ecstatic trance dance, time in nature, sharings, craft work and meditations.

For men and women any age or experience.

A five day retreat at the beautiful Earth Spirit Center. More info soon......
