Why we call ourselves The Medicine Wheel
A Medicine Wheel is a powerful symbol for healing! The structure represents our soul’s journey through life. It has been used repeatedly as a metaphor for a holistic approach to healing, because of the four cardinal directions of east, south, west and north representing in part the spiritual, physical, emotional and mental aspects of the human experience. And because our practice involves addressing all four parts for successful healing, the Medicine Wheel is the perfect representation of what we do.
Found mainly in the northwestern part of North America, Medicine Wheels were traditionally used as ‘Rites of Passage’ whereby a series of ‘Vision quest ceremonies’ would be led by Elders of a native community to assist a tribal member to find their life purpose, through fasting and prayer to invite visions of guidance and clarity.
If you would like to explore more about The Medicine Wheel beyond our little healing space there is ample information online. If you would like to connect personally about how to work within the Medicine Wheel, give us a call.
