Medicine Wheel at Young Wood, Somerset
This Medicine Wheel comes to us as a gift from a Navajo (Dine) Grandfather, because he wanted to share this Beauty Way, and so his teachings have been handed down to people in this land. I bring this Wheel into the story of our lands, our Ancestors, into our cycles and seasons and offer this as a way of connecting with self, Earth and other, with ceremony and Spirit.
Our ancestors lived more closely with the land, the seasons and the 'others'. They had no choice. In these days where we live in boxes, often removed from a direct connection with nature, it is easy to forget that we are wholly reliant on all these lands, these waters and all this Earth offer to us. We have choices to make about how we live and about those that we listen to and honour as our guides. If you want to listen deeply to the land and the spirit(s) of the land, then there are many ways. Medicine Wheels are found in many cultures, and here in this Emerald Isle we have the Celtic Wheel of the year to help lead us into deeper relationship with our local places. The way offered here is the Beauty Way, a Wheel gifted to westerners to help us heal our rifts with nature, put right the wrongs of colonisation and take steps towards creating real Beauty through honouring the sacred. All the offerings are a Ceremony.

This is an experiential way of working, of being, of living, with the Medicine Wheel as a guide. They are a Sacred Ceremony. This way gives you different perspectives as you look and feel things from each of he Eight Directions. It reframes how you are in the world. The more you experience life from the Wheel, the deeper your practice can become. Each day is a ceremony, where we honour the powers, our Guides, the Earth and all that is. We live deeply with them for the day, become more in touch with our senses and open to relationships with all. The Wheel of the directions is a map of life, for life, and helps to build a connected experience of cycles, patterns and all-that-is. It feeds the Sacred Earth and the Spirits.
