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.

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.
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.
