Medicine Woman / Soul Doula
Caroline Carey is a pioneering entrepreneur with 30+ years of embodied teachings to share. She has a deep understanding of the souls journey, has studied the paths of creativity and spiritual growth and has come to understand why the majority of todays problems are rooted in the loss of spirituality and the creative spark. Caroline has designed models including the Mandorla process and maps for spiritual, emotional growth which empowers people to find what is lost and reclaim their circle of strength. She does this by holding workshops and seminars with constellation processes, shamanic skills, transformational dance and creativity. Carolines work is trauma informed.
Whats it all about?
I want to see your spiritual and personal purpose grow, so I will walk beside you, enquire into each stage of the soul purpose path, explore where life gets you down ( I am trauma informed) and celebrate with you on each success.
You can join me on my courses, apprentice circles and in one to one sessions. Contact me soon, I’m looking forward to working with you..
For years I struggled with not feeling good enough and there being something wrong with me, (my mothers words) thus understanding that my core-wound had manifested as dark and difficult experiences to do with sexuality, isolation, soul-loss and deprivation. But its assets lay in my shamanic nature, my creative writing, my conscious connection to the spirit world, my ability to see, to sense and to connect with my soul-guides.
My core-wound and my spiritual assets journeyed this path side by side. I am an edge walker, living in a world of polarity. It has led me to become a voice as an innovative spiritual/shamanic guide, a soul-doula, soul-worker, published writer and workshop leader.
Awarded the Sole Trader of the year award said it all really, I am here to offer Soul Work, its been my fascination and passion since I was very young when I used to consistently ask the question ‘why am I here and what is mine to do?’
I still enquire into that question, which now informs what I know is mine to do. I have developed the body of work known as Middle Earth Medicine and I offer workshops and trainings for others as, well as being a published writer.
Where I have come from
A medicine woman, born 1960, with a love for the wild, poetry and to dance, passionate about creativity, mystery and myth. I have always loved to dance and to write, which I have fulfilled as a dance facilitator, a published writer and a poet. I now work with spiritual, shamanic and creative tools to help others discover their gifts and talents. I have taken my work around Uk and Ireland, to South Africa, Zimbabwe, Germany, Norway, France, Spain, Estonia, Czech Republic, Iceland and continue to reach out to share what I have and be in service where I can.
With personal experiences with addiction, trauma, neglect and social conditioning, I have met with people from all walks of life. I understand how trauma manifests itself in the body. I work with challenging stories, meeting the dark and more scary places of the psyche where I support my clients to find new perspectives on the conditions that haunt them. I am insistent that we should all find the Sovereign light that is our birth-right.
A champion of music, dance and creativity as healing tools, a shamanic practitioner, spirit worker and doula.
A fully qualified and highly experienced elder of therapeutic and spiritual bodies of work since 1986. A writer of seven published books, creator of film, designer of models and maps for soul work and holder of spaces for others growth, in ritual and rites of passage.
Unafraid to explore the dark of our histories, I often reach the parts others prefer not to travel to, shining a light on what is hidden and retrieving the presence of Soul, guiding my clients towards a life rich in creativity and purpose.
Mothering my six, now adult, children gave me the art of play, creativity, story-telling and opened up the deep surrender and unconditional love that motherhood can bestow. Becoming the grandmother of ten, has deepened and matured my skills to a sensitive wisdom with lots of humour.
I am a Soul Doula to those birthing, living and dying, inviting the soul to find its way into the world and beyond.

What others have said
Caroline Carey is a shamanic healer and teacher, who has dived deeply into the rich dark roots of the shamanic path and danced within its primal landscapes. I am very pleased that she has chosen to share her skills in accessing the ecstatic abandonment that shamanism brings for healing and transformation: you are in good hands.
As an ethereal crone and movement ‘passionata’ Caroline supports students to journey deep inside their own psyches and far away into the larger spiritual realms, whilst calling this consciousness back into the expressive moving body. I have never seen anyone navigate chaos with as much grace, courage and tenacity as this woman, her broad feet rooted deeply in the earth whilst her heart seemingly stretches beyond any star visible to you or I. She is capable of bridging the extreme gaps between the territory of the soul and the world of flesh and bones; of transiting the gateways between birth and death, this world and the next.
Caroline is a an artful teacher working with flourishing creativity and discipline. Ben brings a lot of heart, openness and presence with his teachings. With their combined experience, wisdom and skills, they hold excellent workshops with integrity. I loved working with the archetypes, the embodiment of the healing transformation through dance, and being at Cae Mabon, which is full of magic. Thank you.
