Humans often have a tendency to underestimate the power of Yin and its more subtle qualities. We can talk about Yin as being passive, receptive and dark. These descriptions are true but our interpretations of these can leave us with a sense of ‘victim’ and giving ourselves away, a morbid sense of ‘giving up’ can lie between what is true and what is our idea of true darkness and surrender. Exploring the shadow aspects of yin helps us to know where we might fall into default modes, when our yin energy is not fully empowered.
During this gathering we will come together to dance and to explore the power of Yin, the silence, the inner world of receptivity with a more collaborative spirit, we emphasize deep listening, patience, personal growth and power, thus creating a leadership based on respect and a more egalitarian society.
Meditation, dance, alone-time and the exploration of the primal energy of yin will be some of the explorations of this gathering. It is both for men and for women, reminding ourselves that we all have both yin and yang energy within us.

A weekend workshop exploring the power and the magic of the Mandorla. A personal process of illumination, helping us to find clarity and insights into our own human condition.
This workshop includes movement, dance, creativity and some constellation.
"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
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 heaven and earth, light and dark, masculine and feminine, loyalty and betrayal, 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 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 dance, creativity, movement meditation and constellation-work to work with the magic of the 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 them in the dance. Then, 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.
This work is open to all adults, regardless of gender, age, experience or ability. 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.
Accommodation is available in the location if you need it. Please ask for a list of possibilities. Travel info will be sent with confirmation letter once deposit is paid.
The Art Of Spiritual & Emotional Intelligence with the 'Hollow Bone' way of living.
Accepting the mantle of the hollow bone is the primary teaching of our work.
This offering includes learning more presence and deep listening, adopting more self-awareness with the ability to self-regulate, finding empathy and compassion for self and others, embodying and using principled actions.
This all helps to motivate us and bring who we really are into our everyday living, loosening inhibitions and addressing any lack of self esteem and/or negative patterns and habits.
We use movement and dance to help us integrate and digest some of our stories assisting us to stay fluid and receptive to change.
Our focus will be on the Medicine Wheel of Middle Earth Medicine Ways, which takes us through 9 gateways of soul retrieval.
We will journey and learn to share with honesty, the wisdom and the information that we discover. We will gain more shamanic and spiritual tools to support our personal growth and find a deeper wisdom within.
We will dance, write and share within our circle
This is an opportunity to begin a journey of the Hollow Bone cycle and series of gatherings which can, if you wish, lead you to apprenticeship with Caroline and team.
Das Gewebe meiner Seele
Tanzen bedeutet, in die Fülle der Berufung unserer Seelen zu erwachen. Diese Berufung so vollständig wie möglich zu leben bedeutet, unser Potenzial zu verkörpern, auf eine Weise, die nur uns zueigen ist. Dies kommt nicht aus einem Dogma, auch nicht aus dem Ideal eines anderen, wer wir sind und was wir tun sollten. Es ist eine persönliche Beziehung zu einem Bewusstsein, das die Essenz unseres Seins bewohnt, die Unschuld, die in uns angeboren ist. Wenn wir uns nach Hause rufen, lernen wir, unsere Leidenschaft und unser Potenzial in eine heilende, verkörperte Quelle für andere zu verwandeln, und werden zu einer Inspiration für das Wachstum unserer Gemeinschaften.
Das Gewebe unserer Seele kann gefühlt und verkörpert werden, und es kann visuell gestaltet werden, um uns an eine un-gebrochene Unschuld zu erinnern. Dieses Gewebe ist eine archetypische Qualität, die wir in uns tragen. Sie ist auch das Angesicht, von dem wir wissen, dass wir es in die Welt tragen müssen.
An diesen Tagen werden wir tief tanzen und in einen Prozess der Maskenherstellung eintreten, einer tiefen Meditation, um uns mit dem Gewebe unserer Seele zu verbinden und was sie uns in der materiellen Form zeigt.
"The Fabric Of My Soul" befasst sich mit Seelenrückholung und ruft Teile von uns selbst zurück, die vielleicht verloren gegangen sind.
Trauma in seinen vielen Formen, der Vernachlässigung und den schmerzhaften Erfahrungen, verursacht diesen Seelenverlust und wir finden die Akzeptanz dessen, was es uns ermöglicht, die Wunden anzuerkennen und Neues zu wagen, indem wir positive archetypische Qualitäten zurückfordern, um zu erfahren, wer wir sind und was wir hier zu tun haben.
Immer wieder diese lebenswichtige Frage stellend: "Was ist es an mir zu tun", und Samen der Erneuerung zu pflanzen.
The Fabric Of My Soul
To dance is to awaken to the fullness of our souls calling. To inhabit this calling as fully as possible means to embody our potential, in a way that is ours to do and only ours to do. It does not come from dogma, it does not come from any one else's ideal of who and what we should be doing. It is a personal relationship with a consciousness that inhabits the very essence of our being, the innocence (inner - sense) that is innate within us. Calling ourselves home we learn to materialise our passion and our potential into a healing, embodiment source for others, we become an inspiration for the growing members of our community. (an in-spirit-nation)
The very fabric of our soul can be felt and embodied, it can be created visually, to help us remember a broken innocence, the archetypal quality that we realise we carry and the face that we know we need to share in the world.
In this gathering we will dance deeply and enter a process of mask-making, a deep meditation to connect with the fabric of our soul and what it shows us itself through material forms.
'The Fabric Of My Soul' addresses soul retrieval, calling forward parts of ourselves that might have become lost.
Trauma in its many forms, neglect and painful experiences cause that soul loss and so we find the acceptance of that, which enables us to acknowldge the wounds and take new actions, reclaiming positive archetypal qualities in order to learn about who we are and what it is we are here to do.
Always asking that vital question ‘what is mine to do,’ and planting seeds of renewal.

When we arrive at the place of Sovereign, we must have the tools of responsibility at our side. Speaking from the heart, is not simply allowing ourselves to be heard, but is about deep listening to what is true, what is necessary and what is authentic. We have all learnt communication skills, yet at times we can lose track and fall into blame, shame and confusion. We can fail to see what is ours and what belongs to others. We can lose our humility.We will use dance and movement to access a deeper connection to our hearts and enquiring into our purpose.We will then use a particular method of making our own talking sticks, decorating them and learning to speak with them deeply, from the heart, in a way that is beneficial for all.Story telling and using our voices in speaking and in song, we stand in our own oracle of heart, sovereign to the core, naming and celebrating the one we were born to be.This is the Sovereign part of our medicine wheel, where we begin the journey. We recognise that there is always work to be done and with resources and tools to hand, we are willing to take those next steps towards empowerment of the soul.All are welcome, however previous work with us is advisable whether online or in workshops.
