Course Information

Join in an experiential learning weekend which will introduce the four directions and its related medicines. Learn how the Medicine Wheel influences our daily lives and how we can deepen our connection to create better harmony. We will explore the teachings of the four directions, journeying, Indigenous healing, animal medicines, allies and learn while sharing through traditional story telling. The teachings are held in a healing circle format and participation is a part of the circle teachings.

Through right of honour passed down from my Cree Elder I am grateful to share theses stories and teachings of the Medicine Wheel. Join us as we walk through the 4 directions, discuss the meanings of each of these, their related medicines and how they relate to health, healing, and our daily lives.
