Medicine Wheel Ceremonies

Working With the Four Directions


The Medicine Wheel, Medicine Circle or Mandala has been used for thousands of years around the world as a fundamental shamanic map and cross-cultural tool to navigate the flow of life. No matter where we are, we are always surrounded and supported by the four directions-- East, South, West and North. The presence of the directions in our lives can be felt as the earth turns over the course of a day, and as the seasons turn over the course of the year. Understanding how to work well with the four directions can mean the difference between feeling peaceful, supported, clear and at ease, versus feeling unsupported, chaotic and confused and struggling.

Society for Shamanic Practice offers four Medicine Wheel Ceremonies per year
at each Solstice and Equinox.

Ceremonies in 2023:

Equinox, Honoring the East, March 20

Solstice, Honoring the South, June 21

Equinox, Honoring the West, September 22

Solstice, Honoring the North, December 21

This year Jaime Meyer, SSP Board President and shamanic practitioner will lead the ceremonies
