The Medicine Wheel
Marie and Robin McLeod
The Medicine Wheel is a traditional First Nations Learning approach about the connectedness between all Creation. Centred on the four directions of the Universe, the Sacred Wheel teaches that a harmonious balance between the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical aspects will support a state of well-being within individuals. The Medicine Wheel shows us not only the way things are – but also the way things can be. By experiencing the teachings of the Medicine Wheel, participants can expect to feel a sense of renewal and vitality in spirit and purpose.
