In Ancient and Indigenous Cultures the Shamanic Journey is a key focus of shamanism. A journey is used to help the journeyer connect with Spirit and the energies of Earth, while actively establishing helpful communication that is healing and supportive.
The Medicine Wheel symbolizes the individual journey we each must take to find our own path. It has no beginning and no end, and its essence is movement and change. Learn the powers of the directions, seasons, and totems to discover how each impacts your personal energy and love of life.
Each time we journey we recognize more fully that we are part of the whole, and that guidance and support is always available when we want or need it.
