Headline for Book Review: What is the Medicine Wheel and how does it apply to me?

This is a great resource to learn the Introduction to the Medicine Wheel if you want to learn more about it.  The book is a combination of fiction, tribal lore, existential philosophy, and spiritual guidance.  If you are looking for truth and meaning to your life this is a wonderful guide that will give you wisdom and patience.

It’s a story about a boy and a man who throve through the world of tribal culture, values, and beliefs.  The boy discovers on his journey the power of the medicine wheel and its benefits.  You will learn about interpreting the Medicine Wheel’s life.  I learned a lot reading this book and would recommend it to anyone open to understanding other teachings to learn life’s lessons and values.

QUOTES from the book:

Quote: “Awakening the Eagle explains a way of using the Medicine Wheel through pictures, stories, and direct instruction.”

-Life is an amazing thing.  There are so many little wonders that occur all the time that it is easy to take for granted or become desensitized to the miraculous way that life is perpetuated.

-The search for self often begins with the questions, “Who am I and what is my purpose?”  “Indian people are taught that our physical body is nothing more than a lodge for our spirit being.”
