WHEEL OF LIFE – The teachings of the medicine wheel
The medicine wheel is an ancient symbol that is refered to by many indigenous cultures, expressing the different phases that all of us go through yearly as well as through our lives.
In shamanic teachings there are 4 quarters to the year defining the seasons. Each has a correlation to what we are learning through the seasonal shifts, going through spring to winter, seeding to fruition, harvesting to hibernation, and each cycles provides deeper meaning towards what actions and states of consciousness to honor during each cycle.
The medicine wheel teachings also is a path for life, teaching us the ways of the child, teen, adult, and elder. The cycles of life that continue to circle through our lives eternally bring us new teachings, wisdom, and reflection.
In this course we will integrate the quarters based on the summer and winter solstice as well as the spring and fall equinox, defining unique rituals that exist to honor each cycle and enter into their flow.
