Dreaming in and bringing to life our own sacred contract, reclaiming our innate innocence, honoring our wounds and embracing the journey, creation of medicine bags and seeking our own medicine songs. Becoming the shapeshifter, ritual theatre and sharing our gifts. Making your own drum or evoking the spirit of your drum. Mask making, creative experiences, journeying and spirit songs.









What does the course involve?

We meet regularly to work with ecstatic dance, movement meditations, constellation work, individual and group process's, creativity and art, writing and poetry, vision quest, ritual theater and ceremony.

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 yourself, will support you to marry your deepest soul purpose to your ego (the hands of your soul) which then acts in the world. This will radically empower you, enabling you to live 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 teaches a variety of practices including traditional trance dance, journeying, soul retrieval, drumming, vision quests, medicine songs, ritual theatre, connection to power animals, spirit allies and the crafting of tools.  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 God/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.

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. The modules are prerequisites for future training's and apprenticeship in Middle Earth Medicine Ways.

Pre-requisites: This course is open to all. It will be helpful to you if you are new to the work to take part in the Online Journey course, levels 1&2. Some experience of the dance is advised.

Application form please enquire. There is a payment plan if required.


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.

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. Catherine Wright

My two journeys with Hollow Bone Medicine have been both very healing and empowering. I could really dive in my medicine and gather my tools, my allies, receive guidance and meet and transform the inner obstacles and resistances that kept me from opening my wings. The venue deep in nature, the dance, the arts and crafts and creative moments and the journeying were an delicious blend to explore my deep nature and connection to soul. Caroline Carey and Ben Cole, and the assistants, were such good guides on this journey. The medicine is still working through me 3 years later ! Thank you  Virginie Rastello

"It's been an amazing experience to work with Caroline and Ben. Anyone who chooses to work with them will be in awe not only with what they will gain but also what they will unburden themselves with. Fantastic!” Fabian Ray

My presence in the Hollow Bone workshop was a subtle, gentle, very deep dive into my inner universe, where I met my guides, my inner characters, richness of my own medicine, my very unique and personal connections with Nature and Spirit. All that in strong, kind, wise holding of Caroline and the Dance, and support of a circle of others she/we created by sharings of what we discovered in our explorations. Thank you for this amazing and healing experience which reveberates into my daily life in many beautiful ways. Katerina Stejskalova
