A five-day intensive
In shamanism it is said that to be effective, a healer must become like a ‘hollow bone’. In other words, they must become an empty vessel through which they may channel power from the universe on behalf of those they seek to heal.
In this five-day intensive, you will learn how to become a ‘hollow bone’ yourself by accepting the teachings of spirit. You will understand how to shift your consciousness by moving out of the 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.
Once integrated, you can use this state to assist you on shamanic journeys, healings, creative tasks and vision quests. Furthermore, the capacity to become a hollow bone will support you in marrying your deepest soul purpose to your ego, which has the capacity to act in the world. This will radically empower you, enabling you to act from a place of true integrity so that you can do the work you were brought here to do.
During the workshop, Movement Medicine Faculty member Caroline Carey will introduce you to a variety of practices and approaches, including vision quest, shamanic journeying, poetry, ritual theatre, ceremony, connection to power animals and allies, and the crafting of tools, such as medicine bags, instruments and masks. Underpinning all the work is the mesa practice of Movement Medicine – a contemporary approach to shamanic practice through the medium of ecstatic dance. The focus, ultimately, is on creating a clear channel and a strong enough presence to be able to stand fully within your own centre and authority.
