Medicine Wheel Trilogy by Grandmother Puddingstone [--------------------------------------------]
Native spiritual life is founded on the belief that the circle is the perfect form--the power of the earth always works in circles.
Author: Edward Newbury
Category: Indians of North America
The world into which Native people have been brought since the arrival of the Europeans is a wider world than their ancestors knew. It involves many lands and many people--yellow, black, red and white. The Medicine Wheel represents wholeness and within the Medicine Wheel, or Circle of Life, are the Four Sacred colours and the Four Cardinal Directions. Native spiritual life is founded on the belief that the circle is the perfect form--the power of the earth always works in circles. The Four Quarters of the Medicine Wheel--The Four Directions represent the spiritual, emotional and physical aspects of life--they are all connected. Each creature has its proper place in the Wheel and all of them belong together in the one body of the Wheel. The circle makes them one and the oneness makes the Sacred Hoop. Humans are the only creatures to have a place in each of the Four Quarters; some belonging to one and some to another.

Publisher: Michigan State University Press
Category: Social Science
The Medicine Wheel built by Indigenous people acknowledges that ecosystems experience unpredictable recurring cycles and that people and the environment are interconnected. The Western science knowledge framework is incomplete unless localized intergenerational knowledge is respected and becomes part of the problem-definition and solution process. The goal of this book is to lay the context for how to connect Western science and Indigenous knowledge frameworks to form a holistic and ethical decision process for the environment. What is different about this book is that it not only describes the problems inherent to each knowledge framework but also offers new insights for how to connect culture and art to science knowledge frameworks. Read this book and learn how you can move beyond stereotypes to connect with nature.
The Native American Medicine Wheel is a philosophy that addresses the four elements of the human condition and helps the individual create and find balance that ensures healthy recovery from the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual struggles we encounter in an oftentimes confusing and hostile world. The book has numerous spiritual quotes in the Seneca tribal language of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) people. The full color photos of the animals that depict the cardinal directions, the moons, and the various insightful gifts one receives from following this spiritual, logical, and philosophical path, are vibrant and alive. The love of her traditions and dedication of the author is evident on every page and in every word.

The Medicine Wheel turns through each of the eight sections in this collection, with the poems gathered into each part touching on many subjects: nature poems running through the seasons, personality portraits, social concerns - such as the plight of refugees, the treatment of animals, and persecution leading one to consider the price of being true to one's conscience. History is touched on in Part 5, with the Cathars, and the fall of Montsegur remembered, but through it all one gets a sense that the Wheel is turning, through good and ill. The final turn comes at the very end, with Rembrandt - in his painting of the two companions who, with Christ at Emmaus, sit down for a meal at the end of the day - finding perhaps 'the truth within the symbol', leading one to ask, did the painter indeed find the real good medicine, what 'he had been seeking / all his days'?

Psychiatrist and holistic & integrative physician, David Kopacz, and Native American Visionary, Joseph Rael (Beautiful Painted Arrow), create a healing path to help our veterans suffering trauma and PTSD to come home. Even when out of the war zone, combat-readiness persists in the veterans' nervous system. This book uses the circular pathway of the medicine wheel to re-train that nervous system. Rather than viewing trauma, obstacles and disappointments as negatives, the medicine wheel offers a way of transforming these events into an initiation into the new role of warrior-citizen. Walking the medicine wheel is walking a spiritual path - integrating body-emotion-mind-spirit, within the circle of the four directions. The book provides practical exercises of guided imagery and ceremony to help returning veterans feel they have a purpose and have something, not only of value, but, of critical importance to give to their families and their communities.
