We hope you will join us for this webinar around 'The Wheel Of Souls Return.' Exploring the Dwellings, the Archtypes, the Stages of Life, the Resources and the Tools we find a harmonious way through our own creativity to discover, to acknowledge, to affirm our purpose in this world.
This webinar focuses on the Apprentice, the one who is here to learn about who they really are.
It is a pencil or a brush that paints the craft into being. It is the hands of the soul that acts that part into play
What happens when we, or others begin to recognise the souls purpose? When that calling becomes so utterly obvious and we know we can no longer resist. When we know that the reason for us being here on this planet is clear.
Who or what are we apprenticing to?

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.
Friday eve: Open to all, please arrive at 6.45 to sign in. Doors close at 7.30pm €30 on door €20 if paid in advance.
Full weekend: €145 if deposit of 50% paid by 1/9/19 €165 thereafter.

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 for the way of living in todays climate.
Accepting the awakening of the potential of the souls return, 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.
It is during this time that we begin to be able to address our life story within the safe container of dance, supported by others who share this path.
We use movement and dance to help us integrate and digest some of our stories assisting us to stay fluid and receptive to change.
We will journey and learn to share with honesty, the wisdom and the information that we discover. We will gain more spiritual tools to support our personal growth and find a deeper wisdom within.
We will dance, write and create, sharing what we discover with our fellow participants. Our focus will be with the Deeper Knowing segments of the wheel, follow link for more info https://middleearthmedicine.com/workshops/the-wheel-of-souls-return/
This is an opportunity to journey with the 'Souls Return' 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.

An exploration of soul purpose, using the Middle Earth Medicine Wheels dwellings, stages of life, archetypes, resources and tools.
This is an offering where we see opportunity in every one of our life experiences.
Our birthings, our new beginnings, or the start of a project, we learn to accept as Spirit sent, where our soul is designing its own sacred contract and is connected from pre-birth in the realm of dreaming.
It then follows around the wheel to the innocent stage where the imagination begins to vision in, with curiosity, what is possible to create from that contract, from our life story, from our awakenings and even sometimes from our challenges and wounds.
We journey from innocent to rebel, where we need to let go of old structures and immerse ourselves in the wildness of the untamed forest to release ourselves and explore the true nature of who we are.
This leads us to become an apprentice of our own story and the creation of our vocations through it, whatever that might be, whether it is a particular project, body of work, even relationship, being helped and guided by the understanding of our own repetitive patterns, by allies and guardians.
The wheel continues to be our guide, through adulthood with the artisan and the thespian, creating and acting from that place of creativity, parenting those qualities into being, showing our art to the world and manifesting change and fruition.
Knowing and maturing our purpose, we become the Sovereign of our own Magestic garden, stepping into the responsibility needed for the task set out to us and those we must serve, accepting the humility of our own sacred fool that we might relinquish the hold that our soulless ego has over us.
Trusting in a power greater than ourselves, the sacred fool reminds us of who we really are, how to find humor in our story and our humanness, we must awaken fully and know who we are.
Leaving no stone unturned, we aspire to be the wise elder of our own making, standing, staff in hand with that sovereign vibration and the embodied calling that is here to serve.
Surrendered in acceptance of who we are, we know ourselves and are able to honor our ego as the hands of the soul.
Now as that elder we are here to serve the innocents dream and whatever needs our support, bringing it into new life…
and the wheel turns again…
Exploring our purpose means the acceptance of our life experience, unraveling some of its life long stories and what we have made them to mean. Our purpose is born through us and the challenges we meet along the way are divinely there to sculpt us and shape us into who we are and what we are here to offer, yet how we view our own stories might need to make way for something entirely new, even more revealing and much more inline with our potential.
Middle Earth Medicine takes us on nine stages of soul work, integrating soul through personal development, soul-retrieval, creativity and ecstatic dance.
This particular medicine wheel not only supports your personal growth, but offers deeply healing experiences and meditations to open the heart and re-member a broken innocence. We learn to use the tools that can physically put us in touch with our purpose on this planet, guides that will support us on the journey and the very particular archetypal quality we need to embrace. We journey with each of the archetypes and their dwelling places, time of life, tools and resources, to establish the current position of soul and purpose.
Without careful observance and enquiry into knowing where we are in the cycle of our souls offering, it is almost impossible to know what stage we are at and what we need to embody before we can fully move on to the next stage. We can do this with the support of our community, listening to their experiences and learning and growing together. Often we can find ourselves trying to move on too quickly to the next stage before fully engaging with the last, thus meeting with the same challenges over and over again without fulfillment. We learn, one step at a time, patiently unfolding what is truly intended for us.
During this syllabus, Caroline will guide you through the wheel, using movement meditations, outdoor work, self reflection, sharing and creativity. She will share her own story of the Wheels discovery and the maps that have led to the Middle Earth Medicine path. No matter what your experience, no matter what your age or position in life, this Medicine Wheel may be able to support you on a journey of discovery.
