Words from a Snake Medicine workshop……

Mama snake is with us, her spirit rides this journey with her guardian the wild little girl. Nothing to hold her back, to simply find her sensuality and remind us how to move our bodies with a strong connection to the earth to the universal mother. Together we speak her story of renewal and alchemy, reaching into the shadows and darkened places. Bodies move together as one, sharing the medicine within the cauldron searching into the familiar landscapes through each axis mundi, listening to the beat of the drum as it expands the mind and follows into the hidden wells of mysticism.

Why are we here?

The voice opens, she hisses outwards, spewing out the sound that once shook the world and had to be silenced for fear it would cause too much unrest in the minds that heard it.

The sounds take her further beneath the earth of the body, into a golden valley where waters glisten amongst the shimmering lights and forms a golden egg held in hands tenderly, as if ready to birth what  might never have imagined or even spoken of and so she charmed her way into the folds of skin, deep into the membranes of those who would dare to dance her dance – her way of being in the world – and as they drank in her medicine it opened up each and every cell as sweat and tears poured out into the sage filled spaces, the dance and the medicine went deeper into those crevices and mingled with the sinews. Releasing the tied up knots of conformity – great mama snake tenderly uproots one flower after another, as they fall misshapen to the earth and back to the mother, ready to add their stories to the ashes and the debri.

Smoke lifts those wings into the heavens where they meet with the dream time and we see our own need of growth transform into the beloved, so that then all the trimmings can now be let go of, we witness  our freedom in the dance and the treasure that it gifts us.

No need to hold onto the old ways. No need now nor then, neither a need in our companions, for it will not serve.

So the simple question being; What has been? What is now? What is becoming?


About Caroline Carey

Caroline, born in 1960, grew up with a love for the wild, for nature, for animals and to dance. She wrote poetry and stories, created theater and explored the art of ritual of which she always held a fascination for. Not being of the academic type and being passionate about mystery, immagination and myth, she chose to spend her time alone with her many animals and the passion she had for ecstatic dance whether indoors or in nature. Her imagination was as wild as her life-style and by adapting the religious education insisted on by her family, she was able to recognise her own innate connection to Spirit and the spirit guides she became strongly connected to. Mothering her six, (now adult) children, Caroline has learnt the art of play, creativity, story telling and the deep surrender and unconditional love that motherhood bestows upon us.

    It was an honour to be a part of this workshop… I am still feeling the reverberations throughout every cell. If you want to dive deep into yourself & your connection with Spirit, Caroline holds space like the delicate strength of gossamer, total presence in each moment of awareness. Shed your skin & let yourself emerge.
