An exploration of soul purpose, using the Middle Earth Medicine Wheels dwellings, stages of life, archetypes, resources and tools.
In this offering we see opportunity in every experience. Our birthings, or new beginnings, the start of a project, we 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 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 vocations, 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.
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.
