The Woman’s Medicine Song
I cannot share my medicine with people in power
She cannot share her medicine with people in power
The woman she is burning in the deathly fire
I can hear her screaming
When nothing else is heard
But the smoke that is rising
Is the call for new birth
So she beckons to her sisters holding out her hand
Asking for forgiveness for shaming the land
The voice it is broken
Scarred beyond belief
But the mending is beginning as the soul begins to speak
Words of pure wisdom from the belly of the earth
And the fire reaches higher as the waters cleanse her heart
And sisters are united as the medicine is heard
And the mists begin to clear with the sunlight of dawn
So she will share her medicine with people in power
We will share our medicine with people in power
Her heart is burning brightly
Her passion running wild
The dream has awoken and is spreading through the land
The voice no longer broken but a strong and powerful sound
People in power will hear her medicine
People in power will share her medicine

About Caroline Carey
Caroline is an English Grandmother and an aspiring crone~elder, an author of four books, a speaker and innovative and creative teacher, offering her work via workshops and gatherings online as well as internationally.
By adapting the religious education insisted on by her family, she was able to recognise her own innate connection to God/Spirit and has been on a spiritual path since childhood.
She is a champion of music, dance and poetry as healing tools since she was four years old and developed an innate understanding of the soul’s journey, a connection to physical embodiment through movement, theatre and the creative arts. Her work is harmonious with nature.
Her journey has manifested as her own personal training into eldership and crone-hood, carrying the wisdom needed for stability and balance in individuals, relationships, families and communities. Mothering her six, now adult, children, gave Caroline the art of play, creativity, story-telling and opened up the deep surrender and unconditional love that motherhood can bestow.
Caroline has trained in many modalities of dance, therapeutic and spiritual teacher trainings since 1986. She is a writer who has published her autobiography and four other books about her spiritual work. Her latest book, 'Middle Earth Wisdom' will be published soon. She lives in UK with her husband Ben Cole, a film-maker, a director who works with men’s initiation groups. They often offer work together, incorporating dance, presentation and film.
