Sometimes our memories can play games with us and we can remember things slightly differently to how they really were. And of course others will have their own memories

Screen shot 2012-08-17 at 14.51.44and interpretations of how things were too. However, ‘the body cannot lie’ so when we put ourselves in motion with the intention, then the energy that needs to flow will flow. The postures of our body and the dance we inhabit will show a thousand more times what words fail to express, we can see how the body has taken on abuse or been bullied or subjected to verbal accusation or unkindness. We can see where there has been love and tenderness and encouragement to be proud in the world.

The memories that we feel exist and those that we wish to explore will find their way to the skins surface and remind us that there is a dance to be danced. Whatever the story, whether it is one of leaving home or one of hardship in our growing up years, it will have its form showing up through our body.

In our work of Movement Medicine as the music plays and the dancer is invited through the body to begin its exploration, the heart may well open a little more than in our everyday lives.

Those times where we forgot to express ourselves will now be given their opportunity and emotion will be felt and sound will be heard, tears may fall and the dancer releasing what it knows to be true will find its movement and the shapes of misfortune and loss, anger and hurt may then bring themselves into the process.

Memories will show themselves, one by one or many at a time, reminding us of the past and showing us a way to heal, to make things right. And if we can never make them ‘right,’ then to allow the body to shed what has been held there for many years, unspoken, unseen and unsung.

Memory is but a thread of a dream that is tied to the fragmented soul, it follows us around grabbing hold of other memories and weaving them together. Our life can become a collage of many happenings, pictures and questions to be asked!

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.
