    Make your own Medicine Wheel!

    Learn about the meaning and how to make your own Medicine Wheel! The Medicine Wheel has been used by generations of Native American tribes for health and healing. It embodies the four directions, the four seasons, the four elements of Mother Earth, the four stages of life and the four states of personal being, the physical, the mental, the emotional and the spiritual, all of which symbolize dimensions of health and the cycles of life. 

    The circle shape represents the interconnectivity of all aspects of one’s being, including the connection with Mother Earth and all that is in it. Medicine wheels are the circle of awareness of the individual self; the circle of knowledge that provides the power we each have over our own lives.

    The medicine wheel is also about relationships; how to make things work between you and other people and other beings of Mother Earth. There has to be balance in every person’s life. When there is balance, there is harmony. There has to be balance in the four quadrants. Everything in the wheel has a relationship with each other. There is no harmony if all or one of these is not balanced. People may experience a certain amount of peace and harmony if one area is affected; however it won’t last long.

    In this 1.5hr workshop, we will talk about what the Medicine Wheel means to the Indigenous peoples of North America and how we use to self healing.
