The View Through the Medicine Wheel:

The View Through the Medicine WheelShamanic Maps of How the Universe Works.

By Leo Rutherford

‘The View through the Medicine Wheel is a magnificent reflection on how to live creative, healthy and happy lives. We are all on a great journey -but how different life would be if you had a good map?

Native American wisdom teachings of the Medicine Wheel explain how the Cosmos works and our place in it. Our ancestors saw the world in terms of circles and cycles. The Star Maidens Circle reflects life through the eight directions.

This book of life maps shows you how to avoid pitfalls and master you own self. It presents the circle of the egoic self – how we create a life of problems and dramas – and the circle of the authentic self which teaches how to discard our old habits and addictions. The Medicine Wheel culminates in the Twenty Count which is the Cosmos revealed in all its beauty and complexity. Shamanism is spiritual, ecological and psychological. No other book does full justice to the fabulous medicine wheel teachings.’

Principles of Shamanism

3rd Edition. By Leo Rutherford Principles of Shamanism 3rd Edition

This updated edition offers an introduction to shamanism, the oldest spiritual path of them all. The origins of shamanism go back at least 40,000-50,000 years to Stone Age times. All of us have evolved from shamanic cultures, shamanism is not imported, it is our roots wherever we live. Shamanism is not a belief system. It is a path to knowledge which is gained through experience of many facets of life, through rituals, ceremonies, prayer and meditation, trials and tests.

All over the world there is evidence of shamanic practices from as far back as the Palaeolithic period. From ancient cave drawings and similar records it seems that all indigenous peoples shared a similar cosmology, a similar understanding of how the universe works.   Today shamanism survives on all inhabited continents in less ‘developed’ regions in spite of the relentless onslaught of scientific materialism, the treatment of the Earth and nature as something to be dominated and exploited, and male-dominated ‘allopathic’ religion. Now, as the unsustainable nature of current civilization is becoming obvious, more and more people are turning to the wisdom of the ancient cultures for help and guidance in finding a way back to balance with nature, with Planet Earth, and with themselves.

Leo Rutherford has learned from Inca and Shipibo of Peru, Lakota, Cherokee, Pueblo, Hopi and Ojibway of North America, and from apprentices of the Huichols of Mexico.  He founded Eagle’s Wing Centre for Contemporary Shamanism

Spirituality vs. Religion:  Freedom vs. Control

Spirituality Versus Religion

Leo Rutherford

For all who seek truth beyond church/bible dogma…. A stark expose of the problems we humans have brought upon ourselves with the adoption of the Abrahamic male-monotheist separate ‘God’ and the abandonment of the more ancient and balanced animist/shamanist holistic knowledge.

This book contrasts these two radically differing world views: The shamanic world view of indigenous cultures in which everything is seen and felt as alive with soul and the male-monotheist world view which teaches that only humans have souls and the other kingdoms are here for us to use and abuse.

Male-monotheism brought the concept that humans are all-important; that the other kingdoms are here at our disposal; that we are the top of the tree and everything else is here to serve us; that the Great Mother Planet Earth is just a rock in space for us to use and abuse. The current ecological disaster that is unfolding follows on from the adoption of this false ‘God-Chap’ and we need to change this upside down world view so as not to doom ourselves to an early demise. It is time to give the Eternal Mother back her rightful place in the Trinity of Existence and restore balance between the forces of ying and yang.

Religion vs. Spirituality

  • Belief in One God vs. Trust In the Mystery of Existence
  • God Is Separate vs. God Is Everything Everywhere
  • Set of Beliefs vs. Tools to Discover Knowledge
  • God is good, devil is evil vs. Good/evil are two aspects of Creation
  • Bible is the word of God vs. Bible is the myths of men
  • Masculine dominant vs. Feminine/masculine in balance
  • Jesus – only Son of God vs. Jesus – mythological figure

They are helpfully split into different sections, covering everything from warm-up games to verbal improvisation games, theatre games and warm-downs.

For the double drumming track, both drums were held facing each other in a position to optimise the natural reverberation. The recording engineer was Wan Hewitt, himself a professional drummer.

Shamans of Peru CDThe Shamans of Peru CD

Ceremonial Chants, Icaros and Music CD

Shamans of Peru – Recorded on Eagle’s Wing Journeys to Peru

Contains chants and dramatic effects of six different ceremonies with shamans who have worked with Eagle’s Wing Groups. Two ceremonies with San Pedro maestros working in the atmospheric ruins of Puruchucu; two ayahuasca shamans, a man and a woman, in separate sessions working in a jungle temple on the River Momon, outside Iquitos; a Shipibo shaman working in Yarinacocha, outside Pucullpa; and lastly, a despacho in the ruins of Pisaq, Cusco. In addition there are three tracks of atmospheric music played on pre-Colombian instruments. The CD comes with detailed descriptions of the ceremonies, chants, and with photos. For more information click here. The haunting, plaintive music of Peruvian shamans was recorded by the Eagle’s Wing Centre for Contemporary Shamanism at ceremonies in the Peruvian Andes and the Amazon rainforest. Although the chants and icaros have an organic relationship to the medicine plants and shamanic journeying of each particular ritual, and are primarily intended as devotional music for inner-journeying. It is equally possible to listen to the hypnotically beautiful sounds in their own right and simply enjoy them for their otherworldly loveliness.
