How Do We Get From Despair to Rebirth?

Mar 31 st

We are going to use the practices embedded in each direction of the Four Winds Medicine Wheel, as developed by Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D.

The practices of the Four Directions are as follows:

South Direction:  Practices of Transformation

  • Non-judgment
  • Non-suffering
  • Non-attachment
  • The Beauty Way

West Direction:  More Practices of Transformation

  • Non-Doing
  • Non-Engagement
  • Certainty
  • Fearlessness

North Direction:  Practices of Resurrection

  • Beginners Mind
  • Living Consequently
  • Invisibility
  • Integrity

East Direction:  Practices of Rebirth

  • No Mind
  • Mastery of Time
  • Owning your own projections
  • Indigenous Alchemy

At the end of each direction of the Medicine Wheel I offer exercises related to each of the four practices.  These exercises are important ways of self-reflection, awareness and action designed to illuminate the path forward.  I found these exercises to be deeply meaningful in my own journey, and I hope you will, too.
