Medicine and Ancestor Wheel


The Medicine Wheel is used for ceremonies, either traditional or personalized.
We work with several of our local Native American ceremonialists,
and also with those who perform ceremonies of a more universal nature.

Whatever intention a ceremony is given, whether it be a healing ceremony, an initiation ceremony, an honoring ceremony, or a commitment ceremony, each ceremony is performed with sacredness towards the land, towards the people, and towards All of Life.

You can also simply make your connection with the Ancestors either of your own lineage, or more in general with those who went before us. Their wisdom and love can be tapped, and can support you on your current journey.


The totem pole in the heart of the Medicine Wheel is an original, made by the Nez Perce Indians of the Pacific Northwest. Its grand stature reminds us of the Sacredness of all traditions and of the
Oneness of all Peoples.


How to use the Medicine Wheel or Ancestor Wheel
It is a tool for ceremonial activities, to celebrate your earth connection, to allow your heritage to speak to you through the Ancestors of the land or your own Ancestors. You can seat yourself on any of the stones, each of which has a distinct meaning.



The Medicine or Ancestor Wheel is based on the same ancient sacred geometry as the Chartres Labyrinth: the circle and the cross.

This Medicine Wheel has its own unique design. On the concentrical circles stones are placed, that each have their own significance. They connect with the seven sacred directions, with the planets, with all living beings, and with spiritual goals and tributes. Each of these stones offers a seat to meditate on the theme of that specific location.
