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 theatre, the connection to power animals and allies, and the crafting of tools, such as medicine bags, instruments and masks. Underpinning the work is the Middle Earth Medicine Wheel. 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. 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.
In 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 pre-requisite for future training's and apprenticeship in Middle Earth Medicine Ways.
This will be an incredible journey over 3 modules. It is essential to attend all modules. There are limited places so please make your commitment early if you wish to join.
Pre-requisites: Please take part in the Online Shamanic Journey course, levels 1&2 or a workshop that includes journeying. Or at least one shamanic dance workshop with Caroline or a rite of passage with Ben.
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.
