Learn how to use the power of the Medicine Wheel to empower your life and to navigate your spiritual path, fulfilling your deep desires.

Get your answer to the question:


What is my unique Soul Path and how can I fulfill it ?

Medicine Wheel teachings are vast and limitless and form the basis for most First Nations belief themes. It is said the great circle of life; the natural world was created in groups of four; when all things in the natural world are connected; harmony and balance reigns supreme.

Several well known teachers have written that it is only when we connect with the Animal Kingdom, the Faery Kingdom and the Human kingdom can real magic happen.

There have been many paths that we have been directed down whilst planning this course. In doing our research from others works and words and to listening to our own teaching guides, we have learnt a lot about widening our experience with everything we undertake

The Medicine Wheel teachings seem to bring up a lot of judgments about how “it should be done” some insisting that it must be followed religiously as handed down from a Native American perspective, others that the Celtic way was the only right one.

Ms Thunderbird is a Medicine Wheel teacher who received her knowledge and teachings from her own intense research and from a number of Elders. An Elder once told her that there was no wrong way to build a Medicine Wheel; that the grains of sand on a beach would never equal the number of teachings contained within the mysteries of the Teaching Wheel.

Whatever you are doing with your life the Medicine Wheel can help you to understand how to get the best from yourself and see yourself as a powerful, dynamic person.

The Medicine Wheel has as many variations as there are nations, and has been used by many throughout the ages, as a means of travelling through life with incredible grace and wonder.
