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
In-person workshop held in Hastings UK
25th & 26th September ’21
Saturday 10.30am – 5.30pm. Sunday 10am – 5pm
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 light and dark, masculine and feminine, loyalty and betrayal, the seen and the unseen, 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 medicine from your Mandorla workshop in Amsterdam is still working in me, it was a deep surprise to experience this work. I am still in the process of embodying what I learned that weekend into everyday choices and actions.The experience was so strong that I can easily recall it and tap into it’s vivid messages. Re-membering. Thank you again for this precious work! Vanessa
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. 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.
During this workshop, we will use the tools of conscious dance, creativity and movement meditations to work with the Magic of 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 the experience in the dance. With the support of the group and a constellation process held and guided by Caroline with the drum beat, you will enter the space of the mandorla, allowing it to work its magic upon you, bringing the riches of wisdom, new insights and powerful embodiment into your life.
The Magic of Mandorla Intensive with our lovely little group was a precious and privileged time for me. Thank you Caroline as always for holding this creative space with such gentle care, skill and grace. Gabrielle Cheung

“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?). If you feel called to this work, then follow your intuition and go for it! I think it’s of excellent quality.” Suzan Lemont

…for Women and their Story’s’
Tuesday Mornings ongoing 10am – 11.30am
Caroline is a profoundly inspiring facilitator and teacher and workshop leader. I was longing for a group that felt that it would really help me to write and to open up and I was guided to find Caroline and I am deeply grateful. Since working with her I am starting to write and to grow in confidence. I can’t recommend her enough.
There are many ways to help tap into our own creative skills, to open the imagination, to resource an inner understanding and allow ourselves to be seen and heard. Caroline particularly focuses on our ‘life stories’ as women, a way to tap into what is ours to share and what is to do in the world.
“I feel at home in Caroline’s writing group. I enjoy the writing and sharing, and surprise myself with new stories/poems each week.” Anna
Caroline as a creative dancer, a meditation and personal development teacher and a lover of nature has tapped into many resources that excite and inspire the free flow of different styles. These she will share with you.

Awaken Your Dancer – Empower Your Soul – Embody Your Purpose in Life! An online workshop with Caroline.
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.
Is this you?
As a result, we can spend our lives endlessly seeking to fill that emptiness with more – more money, more possessions, or 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, or in more mainstream terms it may be that we have lost our self esteem, self worth and value for many different reasons, like trauma, neglect, conditioning or disease.
We may have done many things to try to reclaim our esteem, but never quite got there!
Reclaiming and reintegrating the lost parts of us is therefore a crucial first step towards self-empowerment. Only then can we align ourselves with our true/soul’s purpose in order to manifest the abundance of our highest potential.
Is this what your are seeking?
In this workshop, Caroline will support you to reclaim the lost parts of your true nature. In a safe and held environment, she will guide you on a journey into the depths, exploring what is missing and what needs to be reclaimed.
Realign yourself with your soul, ready for action in the world!
There will be opportunity to move and dance, take part in processes, with plenty of creative writing, drum journeys, sharing and break out rooms with others. There will be breaks and time out from computer.
Are you ready to book your place?
We cannot know the truth about ourselves by only using our mind…so go deeper search the depths of your own caverns, and find out who you really are. Go deeper because you always can, knowing that the gift that YOU are, lies as a hidden jewel deep inside you.
Never give up, keep asking those questions and meeting the place where two worlds connect with each other. And ask yourself – Who am I? For you are the light, hiding in your own dark!
This workshop costs £95 or a concession £80 for those in need. Deposit to pay upfront is £45. Please follow payment guide to select your payment. A joining letter will be sent shortly after your booking.

Archetypes hold energy that is both negative as well as positive. Our main focus can be on the positive aspects in order to grow and fulfill our spiritual path. However, if the dark is ignored, it can too easily rule, without us being aware of its power over us.
When we do shadow work, we are simply looking for what is hidden from view and that can often mean we seek our own positive light, but something is blocking it from view. That is often what we consider our shadow, but is more likely what we actually present to the world without being fully aware of it ourselves.
In this online workshop, we engage with the segments of the Wheel of Souls Return to support and guide us as we embark on that deep journey of soul retrieval.
Join us for this exploration of light and dark, of shadow and soul

A gentle yet deep exploration of the medicine of the heart
Down through the ages, the heart has been considered the seat of our spiritual and moral compass, the source of love, courage and wisdom. Today, science is confirming what mystics have known for centuries: far beyond its role as a simple mechanical pump, the heart possesses an innate intelligence of its own; it constantly communicates with the brain and the rest of the body’s organs and systems, and profoundly influences the way we perceive and respond to the world.
Drawing upon these ancient and modern insights, Heart Matters offers you the chance to connect deeply with the rhythms of your heart through the power of dance – a powerful experience rooted in shamanic and conscious dance traditions. To facilitate this process, experienced teacher Caroline Carey will introduce you to the Middle Earth Medicine landscape of emotion, which connects us to the heart and body of the dancer, bringing freedom and healing into our lives. Using movement and breath, you will be able to explore this landscape within their light and shadow aspects with the intention of bringing awareness, love and acceptance to your relationship with each one. You will also explore your relationship with wider circles of concern: your peers, your community and the environment.
Connecting with your heart in this way will support you to transform your relationship to your life by healing emotional wounds, awakening your passion and calling upon your heart’s wisdom to guide you forwards into greater intimacy with yourself and the wider world.
Caroline’s approach to this work is one of subtlety and gentle integrity. She is an experienced facilitator in ‘heart medicine’, who draws upon the wisdom gleaned from her own life experiences, as well as more than 20 years’ experience as a 5Rhthyms and Movement Medicine teacher and now holds her own body of work, Middle Earth Medicine.
Prerequisites: No prior experience of MEM required, just a willingness to move your body and be open to others.
“Caroline, you defy my need to find the right words, but I am compelled to try. I feel young and awkward; a mass of gangly green shoots in your glow. My mind knows not what to make of you. But you speak directly to the deepest fibre of the dancer I am. And he learns to listen and trust a little more and open his heart wider still, and he heals. Thank you from somewhere deep inside where words are simply too small.”
—Glenn O’Hearne, Heart Matters, Johannesburg 2014
“In dancing with Caroline, I experienced that her exquisite and gentle way of holding me in the dance allowed me to dive deep into the shadows of my soul. There is an exceptional trust in her relationship with the power and presence of the dance so no excessive prodding (which I usually find so disruptive) is necessary and I was allowed to just dance what I needed to dance and in so doing unfold what I needed to unfold, leaving me blown away and intimately moved.”
—Claire Lynn McTaggert
“My heart has been humming since the weekend’s workshop… anything seemed possible when I left on Sunday night. The combination of your energy, music and voice created such a deep healing experience. Thank you again from my heart.”
—Ulla Arnbert, Heart Matters, London 2010
“I am so, so grateful for the love, acceptance and vulnerability pouring into and out of my being at the end of the Heart Matters workshop. I feel thankful for the beauty of brokenness, thankful for the coming together of beautiful, awakened souls, thankful for life’s teachers. Thank you Caroline Carey and JaYne Bullen for holding such a sacred space for all of us.”
—Tamara Tavares, Heart Matters, South Africa 2014
“It was a whole new experience for me… Instead of standing quietly trying to figure out what was going on and why, I was able to let all the reasons and the chatter go, and get on with the dance and with life! Even since, I rejoice in my new tender heart!”
—Philomena Sutton, Teacher, Heart Matters, Cork 2008
“…as a teacher, trainer and spiritual guide, Caroline brings a presence to her work that speaks of compassion and sincerity; she is truly a woman of stature and depth. It is my pleasure to recommend her highly.”

Through out our lives we repeat certain habits and patterns, usually beginning them through our conditioning as a necessity during childhood.
Our first was learning the fine art of manipulation. Calling for our food and our comfort. We learnt that this was the way forward, when it became more subtle, as we crafted our own personal way to manipulate others and get our needs met. Thus is the cleverness of our human nature.
Throughout our lives we learned to repeat things over and over to be good at them. If we wanted to play the piano, we had to practice, playing the same notes over and over. The same tunes, working through mistakes and finding our way to perfection. We would do this with many things throughout our life, from learning to walk, to read to play sport, to learning how to be in relationship.
Our patterns will repeat themselves until we get them right. Or in some cases until we get so good at them that they rule our lives and create dysfunction, not recognising what we are actually doing!
Those are the habits that are not so good for us. However, they are still repeated because, I firmly believe, we are trying to learn from them. Else why would we keep repeating habits that cause problems and yet we say to ourselves over and over “why do I keep doing this?”
If we could let go of scolding ourselves and accept that these habits are there to learn from and be compassionate with ourselves, we might be able to grow with them rather than blame others or create havoc.
We might learn to live with our dysfunctions, letting them go gradually as we look at where they come from originally, then we can explore the medicine that is so cleverly designed to bring to the world, we discover our solutions.
In the dance we evoke the repetition, exploring the outcomes and where these patterns lie deeply within the body. Inviting the spirit of repetition through as a meditation and trance dance, we explore our sovereign energy, to burn away what no longer serves us.
Becoming more aware of these habits and patterns, we begin to put them to better use. Discovering that there is more to them than we may have ever realised.
We will dance deeply and share our experiences. You are welcome to join us.
