June 10, 11, 12
Sat. & Sun. 11:00AM-6:00PM
Not taught since 2019, this essential workshop is again available with a view towards our current times and conditions. The Wheel is a sacred device for seeing into our past, while healing the present and creating the future. It provides a deep sense of introspection and interconnectedness rarely accessible. Plan on joining us for this weekend intensive on the Sacred Wheel and learn how to incorporate its usage into daily life.
Wheels have been utilized in China, Celtic society, Tibet, and the Indigenous peoples of North America. All wheels act as metaphors for life. They provide the course for people to attain and maintain balance; balance in all aspects of life – spiritual, emotional, physical and mental. This workshop will use The Wheel as a window into what is currently out of balance, enabling the healing to begin.
Our current conditions are rife with uncertainty, loss of control, personal and global trauma and grief. After two years of change, anxiety, and doubtfulness we are again ready to move into a new way of life, a new way of being and interacting with others.
Starting at the Central Fire and concluding at the Dog Soldiers Lodge, you will journey around a North American wheel to gain wisdom into how the traditional teachings of the Lodges can bring greater insight and guidance. Students will utilize shamanic skills as a means to heal dis-ease and move through our modern world of intense electro-magnetic energies and chaos. We will move through the seven major chakras and the seven Spiritual Chakras to see through the haze of the last two years and emerge refreshed and with vision.
Extensive use of meditation and journeying will be used during this course to teach the traditional nine directions, their meanings, colors, symbols, history, and how to translate them for personal use. The weekend closes with students working the wheel on a personal problem or situation.
Wear comfortable clothes, bring a notebook, and bring a potluck dish to share for Sunday’s closing class.
