A Journey Through the Four Directions of a Medicine Wheel 

with Erinn Jacques and Michael Rocque

Experience the sacred framework of a Medicine Wheel through our transformative one-day workshops, each dedicated to exploring one of its Four Directions: the East, South, West, and North. 

The medicine wheel is a sacred symbol that represents the four directions, the four seasons and the four stages of life. We walk along the wheel cyclically each moment, day, month, year and season of our lifetime.

Each one-day workshop will focus on a single direction, allowing us to fully explore and immerse ourselves in the wisdom it has to offer. Our time together will be a weaving of teaching circles, time in nature and story council. Each workshop offers sacred space for self-reflection, healing, and transformation. 

Join us as we embark on this year-long journey of holistic integration and empowerment. Discover the balance and harmony of the Four Directions within yourself.

The East (Spring) – Awaken Your Love of Spirit – April 20th 

Embark on a soulful exploration as we delve into the mysteries of the East, the realm of Spirit. Through guided meditations, ritualistic practices, and immersive experiences in nature, reconnect with your inner essence and open yourself to illumination and inspiration. 

The South (Summer) – Nourish Your Physical Body – Aug 24th 

Nurture your physical vessel as we venture into the vibrant energy of the South. Engage in rejuvenating movement, mindful nutrition practices, and connect with the innocence and playfulness of your inner child. Revitalize your body and foster a deeper connection to the earth's rhythms.

 

The West – (Fall) Embrace Love of Self – Oct 12th 

Explore the realm of emotions as we journey through the West. Through introspective exercises, expressive arts, and ceremonial practices, honor the depths of your feelings, explore the medicine you carry within you, and find spaces of self-love and acceptance.

 

The North – (Winter) Expand Your Love of Community – Date TBD – Winter 2025 

Expand the horizons of your mind as we explore the wisdom of the North. Through contemplative inquiry, and nature-based mindfulness practices, foster an inner wisdom that synthesizes and integrates emotion and thought into appropriate action for the care and sustainability of your community.
