Butterfly is a mystery school, a cocoon that becomes a melting pot for our longing, joy, grief and humaness. Together we create a space for uncensored exploration, truth telling and physical and emotional nourishment. Through dance, poetry, voice, yoga nidra, creative enquiry and breathwork we dive into our beingness and follow the unique curriculum of our souls unfolding.
Next year, 2021 will mark 7 years since the Butterfly work was seeded here in Sheffield and now it’s form is changing shape again. Over lockdown it has become clear to me that the Inanna – Erishkegal work is the work of now. So from 2021 the Heroine’s Journey will now form the main body of the work. Therefore from next year Butterfly will be a 6 month initiation journey followed by a 9 month Heroine’s Journey.
The Initiation Journey takes place over 6 months at Sharrow Performing Arts Space, Sheffield. Each month we adventure into a different portal of our humanness beginning with womb wisdom then undressing the voice, breathwork, the wheel of consent, sexuality and pleasure and the naked heart. The course invites us to the places within that have been calling out to us but that we never dared visit until now…

Previous Butterflies have said,
“The Butterfly course is one of the best things I have ever done. It has been challenging in a way that I needed it to be and I have learnt so much about myself and the power of female groups.” ~ Rachael
“It is difficult to explain how much I have benefited from Carly’s work. She creates such a safe space to allow me to be open with my vulnerabilities. Signing up to the butterfly course was one of the best decisions I have made.” ~ Suzie
“There is a real magic in what Carly creates. I’m not sure it’s something you’ll be able to understand from my words alone; the beauty of Carly’s work can only really be understood by being felt. Carly creates and holds beautiful, nurturing spaces for you to explore whatever it is that arises within you, an opportunity for personal growth and exploration. Carly delights in the exploration of our humanness and there is no emotion that is not welcome. That, in itself, is a rare gift. She is a generous, wise and humble teacher.” ~ Kiran

This work is one of the greatest joys in my life, witnessing time and again women flourish, change and explore new ground is such a privilege. We work to heal the rift between sexuality and spirituality, envisioning new possibilities of what an earth based sense of the sacred is and what that means within our wider lives and culture. Covid-19 has renewed my awareness of how the nuance of human interaction is essential for our spirit and soul lives. I am so looking forward to holding in person gatherings again.
