To inquire about what’s below the surface. As well as to begin to create a more wholesome connection to yourself Physically (the body)by implementing a physical practice into your daily life. Intellectually (the mind)by adding a practice of journaling and meditation. Emotionally (the heart) through the physical body, you will implement exercises to listen to your body, and in turn, begin to open up emotionally. As well as Spiritually (the self) by creating a sacred space in your home.
The centuries-old Medicine Wheel practice is mapped across the Plains Peoples’ territories and continues to be honored to this day. The underlying teachings of interconnectedness, balance, and harmony are common across Indigenous Peoples’ worldviews and practices in personal, community, and global health. You may have seen the Medicine Wheel represented in contemporary times in the image below. This represents the 4 directions, as well as each larger grouping of Peoples: Caucasian, Asian, African, Indigenous. All are equally of value because diversity is beautiful and necessary in Indigenous understandings.
In this course you will be guided to learn about yourself, only the individual can be truly honest with themselves and find balance in these aspects of self.

Week two will consist of guided identification of areas where you may be using excessive energy. Week three will be a week of guided cleansing. Finally, week four will be the week of implementing new habits that will help you fortify a deep sense of self-respect. This will all be a part of your “normal” life.
