A three module course, to develop your own shamanic skills, healing abilities, understanding of Middle Earth Syllabus to include dance, drumming, creativity, modern and ancient tools of the shamanic world.
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?
Accepting the mantle of the hollow bone is the primary teaching of this work. 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 will support you to marry 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 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 teach a variety of practices and approaches. These include shamanic journeying, soul retrieval, drumming, vision quests, medicine songs, ritual theater, the connection to power animals and allies, and the crafting of tools, such as medicine bags, instruments and masks. Underpinning the work is the ancient shamanic practice of ecstatic dance and ritual theater process's. 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.
