What is a

Medicine Wheel?

Wheels or circles, the Sacred hoop, or Mandalas, have been used since the ancient times as tools for teaching the ways of the Universe and understanding ourselves within the cycles of Life. A Medicine Wheel is a cognitive map, a continuous movement of energy representing the continuity and harmony of the cycles of life for all living beings. It is a symbol of the inter-connection of All Things in the Universe since there is no beginning or end. Our ancestors have used circles or wheels for thousands of years to teach about an individual’s life journey. Circles work as portals into holistic understanding as nothing is seen as linear, for the idea of linear is seen as an illusion. Wheels are like keys – they help us connect the dots in life’s journey — understanding and learning from our interconnection to every other living thing or cycle of life.

In today’s society with increasing issues of loneliness, disconnection, depression, and anxiety, the Medicine Wheel can assist us in understanding our true essence and path.
