Topic: The Apprenticeship Threshold
Meeting ID: 861 9957 6363
Come join us this Saturday 26th November, for a gathering about the Middle Earth Medicine Apprenticeship program.
Middle Earth Medicine Ways is a body of work that came out of my understanding of how spiritual and creative explorations are needed for the fullest expression of our soul.
It is a journey bringing our purpose and soul, our ecological or mytho-poetic identity, into alignment with our ego, which is our social identity.
Merging these parts of ourselves gives us the ability to transform what might have been experienced as soul-loss, depression, lack of self-esteem, or a depletion of our creativity, into a highly purposeful expression of our well-being, our hearts calling and the creative purpose we were born with.
We all need personal development, we all need to know the creativity and purpose of our soul. We all need support and empowerment.
Our apprenticeship is designed to give you the community, the tools and the resources and new experiences needed to fully embrace your purpose, thus reclaiming self esteem and helping you to engage with the path that is your birthright.
We grow ourselves into our true nature, taking our place in the circle of life, with a strong voice and authentic identity.
We begin the journey with the 13 Weeks ~ Soul Retrieval Process. Link Here
You are welcome to join us.

…for Women and their Story’s’
Tuesday Mornings ongoing 10am – 11.30am
Caroline has been holding creative writing groups for seven years. This particular online group began at the beginning of the lockdown in 2020 and has run throughout, empowering participants to expand their creativity, share their hearts and voices and have the courage to embody their ability to write.
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 of what it means 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 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.

“Writing group with Caroline has opened a new gateway for my writing. Firstly I am writing directly in English, secondly I can exchange my writing with the women from around the world. My writing is improving and taking me to the lands unknown before…Sharing, exchange, inspiration, feedback, witnessing or just being and listening…is all about that group for me…we share not only our writing but personal stories, insights and feelings sometimes very private, sometimes very powerful or sometimes very simple…sometimes just a few words are enough, they are heard and welcomed in this group…we are there for each other to support not only our writing but also our well being” Karolina Urbanska

The winter solstice marks the moment when half of the Earth is tilted the farthest away from the sun. It usually happens on December 21st or the 22nd, at the exact same time around the world.
If in the Northern Hemisphere, we are existing at the darkest time of the year. A time to go inward, to dream deeply.
Inviting the returning sun has been a ritual for thousands of years. To dance at that ritual, can illuminate the light within us and return ourselves to the brightness of our true self.
Join me and others for a ceremonial dance, to meet the Solstice and celebrate together, this potent time of year.

Imagine learning new techniques, taking empowering journeys of self-realisation and participating fully in the courageous act of embodying your fullest potential.
Imagine that during this process you have a group of people supporting your creativity, helping you find inner joy from the identification of your gifts.
Previous participants have shared that they experienced being heard and were inspired by what others brought. They heard commonalities in their challenges and no longer felt alone. They experienced the spirit of the group outside the sessions, as a resource to tap into and connect with. This is what offer everyone who joins this path.
Meeting each Thursday for 13 weeks, live on zoom.
We have blocks in bringing our gift or talent into community. Would you benefit from releasing those blocks, freeing up the creativity within? This is The Golden Child Enquiry, exploring our innocence, or an inner-sense of who we truly are and the process requires gentleness, kindness and care.
We begin to plant the seeds
Together we explore new perspectives, whilst discovering techniques with the tools and resources of ‘The Wheel Of Soul’s Return’. We begin to understand what our core-wound is, and how we can use it to unlock our potential.
It gets exciting
With each 13 week course and inner journey, we help you find clarity in your gifts and talents, guide you into presence, realisations, concise actions, contribution and fulfilment.
The support you receive also gives you the tools to process old conditioning and the loss of self esteem.
Will you give yourself one evening a week, plus creative tasks and a connection to others on this path, to find your fulfilment?
So, what will you get from this course?
- Opportunities to discover your gifts and talents and ensure that they serve you and others in this lifetime.
- An understanding of what your core wound is and how you can use it to claim your potential.
- Resources that support your life-force to use in everyday situations.
- Guidance through exercises that help you know yourself more clearly.
- Connection to an intimate group of like-minded people.
- Creative tasks that inspire.
- The opportunity to explore your history with new perspectives, so that you can leave behind negativity and old beliefs.
- The embodiment of archetypes that strengthen your talent.
- The ability to stand on the stage of life, strengthen your voice and share your gift.
- Knowledge that you are investing in YOUR life, YOUR fulfillments and YOUR happiness.
The next 13 week process begins Thursday 1st September until 24th November. Full cost
The 13 Week course is a prerequisite for our MEM Apprenticeship and Leadership Training.

“Since I’ve known Caroline and her work, my own life became more clear and accessible. As a student, a friend and supporter of this work I deeply recommend to try it out, it is enchanting.” Elisabeth Shrag
Some people have joined these groups with no idea of who they really are and unaware of any personal talent or the gift …but through this weekly process, they have discovered there is much more to them than they ever realised.
You too might have a talent that is very clear but which you haven’t yet found a way to share with others. This really matters, because it feels exceptionally good to share our gifts, to contribute, to have them received and to see them supporting other people, community or the environment.
There is no doubt that you hold a gift that is an answer to someone else’s prayer.
Join us to find out more and experience this exciting exploration of the inner journey that leads to clarity about your contribution to the outer journey.

‘Hollow Bone’ Creative Journeys
with Caroline Carey & Middle Earth Medicine
Caroline has traversed the many territories of human emotion. With decades of intense study of her personal accounts and by holding a safe space for others, she has identified deep layers of suffering, transforming it into emotional intelligence and liberating experiences. She sees the addressing of emotion and riding its profound landscapes as opening gateways into better living, lessening of traumatic responses, increased intelligence and a deeper sense of well-being.
The embodiment of the heart’s wisdom has been Carolines primary objective throughout her many years of tutelage and coaching. By combining traditional shamanic tools, ritual theatre and personal development she helps others to root and embody spirituality into their modern day environment.
We dream in our own ‘Hollow Bone,’ emptying ourselves of mundanity as we travel to the far shores of the upper and lower worlds.
Caroline offers a series of workshops to explore emotional intelligence and shamanic traditions, bringing forth creative abundance as we seek together the guidance of a deeper well of mystery.
Each workshop includes conscious movement and dance, meditations, creative tasks and group sharing.
No experience necessary, however it is helpful to have engaged in some movement or personal development work.

We all experience conflict at some point in our lives; while we might experience this as conflict outside ourselves, it is likely that we are deeply internally discordant.
The conflicts we get to know personally may be our masculine and feminine sides leaving us unbalanced and missing out on what each can bring to our growth. We can also be experiencing the conflict between matter and spirituality, where the two have yet to meet. These are some of the many inner conflicts we have and there are the inherent challenges in making simple decisions as well!
Whatever is unconscious needs to be brought to the conscious mind. By doing the personal development work we begin to learn what has caused inhibitions as we hide ourselves and diminish our voices. Once known and acknowledged, we can begin the journey of acceptance, finding new ways to be and new ways to show up to who we truly are.
This workshop will help you to uncover those conflicts, to acknowledge them, to accept them, to be creative with them, so that you can see the root causes and begin to find inspired ways to make changes.
This unfolding leads to empowerment, making you more conscious of the habits and patterns that can diminish you and bringing a sense of how to move forward with courage and confidence, bring your self-worth fully into community.
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 and used for the positive. We call this space the ‘Mandorla’.
The Mandorla is known as the ‘Vesica Piscis’ 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.
The Mandorla – an ancient symbol for wholeness and balance. – epitomises the ancient secret of the Flower of Life, a sacred geometric form, and is based upon those principles, symbolising the interface between the spiritual and physical worlds. Once understood how separate we have become from each, we can begin the journey of reconnecting. This lessens any level of dissociation, ungrounded behaviours and the discomfort of conflict. It is a marriage of spirit and matter, just as we explore the marriage of soul and a healthy ego. One cannot be whole and embodied without the other.
During this workshop, we draw upon the tools of conscious dance, creativity, self-help, movement meditation and constellation-work to engage with the Magic of the Mandorla. You will explore the conflict of meeting your core-wounds in relationship to your aspirations, creating authentic and integrated empowerment. 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.
Caroline Carey has been offering the Magic Of Mandorla for over a decade and has been a conscious dance facilitator for 25 years. She has an innate understanding of the power of polarity, with a lifetime’s experience in its field, granting wisdom that can enrich us all. She is a conscious embodiment and spiritual mentor, a published writer and a grandmother.

I’ve only ever danced (at least sober) in my own living room before so I was apprehensive about a weekend exploring the Mandorla via dance with Caroline but felt drawn to take part. I’m so glad I did. Caroline made me feel immediately comfortable and almost as unselfconscious as I am dancing at home. The people who are attracted to the sort of work Caroline does are open hearted, kind and adventurous exactly the sort of fellow explorers you need to venture into this sort of inner work. As an artist I was especially interested in the art-making component of the workshop. I felt free to create in my own way but without the pressure of perfection that I often feel in my professional work, I think anyone at any level of artistic experience (or none) would find this accessible and enriching. The feeling of camaraderie built up over the weekend so when it was time to dive in deep it didn’t feel too intimidating especially with Caroline’s gentle but firm manner of holding space. In the following days I’ve been expanding on the insights I gained over the weekend and believe they will have a significant effect on how I live my life from now on. I couldn’t recommend the Magic of Mandorla workshop more highly, if you’re hesitating I suggest taking the leap! Rebecca Fox
“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 its vivid messages. Remembering. Thank you again for this precious work.”Vanessa
“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
“Caroline holds strong boundaries to facilitate and enable personal process to show up and be moved through. Her gentle yet strongly compassionate presence allows the dance of personal story be danced and let go of, for free space to emerge to invite newness in. This is the Magic of Mandorla.” Zarah Francis
This work is open to all adults, regardless of gender, age or experience. 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.

Apprenticeship program. A Spiritual/Shamanic path of Sovereignty. Do you understand why you would like to share your gifts with
Apprenticeship program. A Spiritual/Shamanic path of Sovereignty.
Middle Earth Medicine holds an ongoing training for leadership and education, for principled and ethical leadership roles. We use the art of creativity, conscious dance, work in nature and resources from our practicing of embodiment. It is a spiritual journey and a pathway towards Sovereign leadership. To become the guide and educator that is authentic to your life path and offering.
The intention of this kind of leadership is to hold a nurturing space for individuals and communities, with clearly principled attitudes and authentic qualities.
Our gatherings are creativity based with an understanding that this enhances the spiritual and shamanic nature of body, heart and mind. It calls us to re-examine what is most important within our culture, seeking the healing of our own collective wounds and mending the circle of connection.
Being an authentic leader of workshops, gatherings, individual sessions or seminars for others means knowing who you are, what your gifts are and what your challenges and projections are likely to be. It means understanding how your work might affect others and the consequences of that. It means learning how to be the most effective guide or educator you can be and offering what you have to give in a principled way. It also means knowing your limitations and how to self-care in these environments.
It has always felt clear that to do this level of work, we need to first do work on ourselves and as an ongoing enquiry.
We offer gatherings and courses to deepen this experience and to have support and empowerment from others. These include a 13 week online live course and a monthly zoom meeting on a variety of subjects that keep us connected, encouraging personal growth.
What we offer you is:
- Empowerment to understand why you might want to be a guide / educator
- How to recognise your innate gift and talent
- Getting to know your unique voice
- Finding connection to like minded people who want to grow and learn
- Deepening the apprenticeship to your life story
- Discovering embodiment skills and heart medicine
- Enhancing your own and others creativity
- Recognising trauma & mental health un-wellness
- The embodiment of tools to empower your offering
- Encouraging the joy of sharing
- Understanding of polarity
- Becoming a mentor
We also encourage participation in Spiritual and Shamanic studies with drum journey course, individual mentoring and/or counselling and supervision with in-person workshops on the subjects held by Middle Earth Medicine Ways.
This training will give you:
- Encouragement and empowerment to follow the innate calling that is directly linked with your soul purpose and potential, the enhancement of your particular gift and talent.
- An apprenticeship toolkit which includes ongoing enquiries and an understanding of the archetypal energies that help to empower your journey.
- Tools to use within your own circles and groups.
- Certification as a Middle Earth Medicine educator or guide.
- The possibility of becoming a mentor for others on this path.
- Inclusion in our website as an educator or guide.
As an applicant you will need to have taken part in the 13 week online course, assisted on at least one course and taken part in embodiment sessions i.e. dance or physical practices.
You are invited to apply for this leadership training which includes:
These gatherings are open to all. Those who are on the apprenticeship, you will meet each month in-between the gatherings for ongoing enquiries and explorations. (The Oracle Of Leadership 1&2, is only available to those who are part of the apprenticeship circle and have attended the 13 week process.)
Once each of these gatherings have been attended, there is a graduation process to fulfil and complete your training into leadership.
If you would like to apply for this training, please send in your application form available from Caroline or Ayla-Willow and sign up for the 13 Weeks ~ Soul Retrieval course. Next one linked HERE
On a personal note:
My own journey through trainings and learning to be a workshop leader of dance and shamanic/creative skills has led me through many years of finding out what my purpose is.
I was always on this journey to learn how to offer conscious dance in a way that served my community, but there was so much more to it. And what a pleasure it is to offer what I enjoy so much and what has always been a growing challenge; it is one my greatest teachers!
At times I felt like the dark witch in the corner with no voice, (I always struggled with my own voice) not being sure how to step forward, yet knowing there was medicine unfolding. Then at other times I would feel I had something to share but didn’t know how to put myself into the arena. I would sometimes wonder if I was doing anything at all.
In time, and it certainly was a long time of delving into possibilities, I found my voice and I came to recognise what my particular ‘style’ was.
Gradually moving away from ego and charisma, meant replacing them with deep listening, observation skills and including particular ethics and principles that kept me in ‘Spirit world’ rather than in a world of my own personality. I had to learn to embody this and with help in supervision and with my own mentor and over twenty five years experience, I found out what it truly meant and most importantly – that it is a way that leadership is being called for.
This is what I am now sharing with others in the Middle Earth Medicine apprenticeship program. See https://middleearthmedicine.com/apprenticeship/
I know for myself I am done with leadership based on personality, dynamism and glamour, all of which I sense was and is often easy to accomplish. My experiences lead me to adopt a more integral way, a more enlightened way of being in service to the whole and that can be hard to do, because the ego is strong and so often wants to ‘take over’.
Our new ways of leadership are about accepting people for the way they are, allowing what happens in the moment without unnecessary reaction or resistance. Offering intuitive guidance where appropriate, stepping up when direct guidance is needed and stepping back from the arena in order to allow others to step forward, allowing them to use their skills and step into their particular roles. This is what Middle Earth Medicine represents and stands for.
Experiencing holding a space for others, can radically help us to see what our own role is, so then we can see what our purpose is and who we are within it.
If it feels time for you to step up, find out who you are in a leadership role and listen to the hearts of others, be in service to your community, whether through dance or any other body-based form of creativity, then I invite you to come and join us on
this apprenticeship program which will help you to identify your gift, build community support and do the work necessary to move beyond inhibitions and any lack of self esteem, which is much needed when we begin to make our offerings to others. We have gatherings, focussed on holding a safe space for others, working with ethics and principles, facing trauma, using a variety of skills, exercises, DJ’ing and group process. I mentor people throughout.
There is a place for you, if you are ready to step in, please join our 13 weeks soul retrieval journey as many times as possible, be part of our community, attend Magic Of Mandorla workshops and other offerings from the facilitators of MEM, and sign up for the training.
