April 29th–May 6th, 2017. PORTUGAL – THE MEDICINE WHEEL
Maps of relationship. With Leo Rutherford
When we go somewhere new, the first thing we usually do is find a map to help in plotting our course. But have you ever had a map of life? I didn’t until I discovered the Medicine Wheel – and what a difference it has made!
You can put any life issue onto the Medicine Wheel and once you find it’s correct ‘sitting place’, the wheel will show you what energies are working and what they are doing – and therefore what to address in order to change and heal the issue.
The Medicine Wheel is a series of interlocking maps of life and shows us the forces that operate on us from all directions. The wheels are circles of power and knowledge, ways of knowing life and its cyclical and circular nature.
‘Medicine’ means vital force, it is anything which brings personal power, power over our self, the ability to respond to and to consciously co-create our life. The Medicine Wheel is not a belief system It guides us to steer a good heart-full path through life’s many challenges and vicissitudes.
The Twenty Count, also known as the Childrens’ Count because it was a way children were taught, is the foundation wheel and shows the forces of the Universe and how they compliment and oppose each other.
The Star Maiden’s Circle is the central circle of the Twenty Count and is the circle of human life and development.
The Seven Arrows are a map of how we make ourselves miserable and how to get out of such spirals of self destruction to a place of happiness and rejoicing in life.
This workshop will give you new ways to understand your self and your life and new ways to deal with the challenges that life sends you. It will include shamanic drum journeys, ceremonies to ‘Stop the World’, and other interactions which will enable you to feel into the messages taught by the Medicine and how it relates to you. This will open the door to a much greater sense of personal empowerment and possibility.
