The Embodied Shamanic Journey

Recently I was asked to write an article for the Sesame Journal about the Shamanic Journey.

I called it ‘The Embodied Shamanic Journey’ as for me the most profound journeys happen when I am dancing! Thus they include my body, my heart, my mind, soul and spirit. Nothing is left out. It is what I share with others and when studied deeply and profoundly, the journey is heightened to new levels of consciousness rarely experienced in other ways, at least not by myself!

In this article I have covered the use of different brain waves and why it is so important to understand the use of brain patterns and the beats of music that create repetitive movement.  I have also included some of my own personal experience of dance and its healing power. For me it is part of my own Movement Medicine practice and what I combine in my own teachings of this work, as always sharing from my own experience.

If you are interested in shamanism and its use ecstatically with dance, turn to page 15 in this article. I’d be happy to hear your comments.

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. Caroline is: A mother and grandmother A writer and poet A dancer A spiritual life coach A catalyst for change She is available to you for guidance
