Writing with an

Indigenous Lens

The overall process and development of my workshops, which can be adjusted to cater to nearly any group or delivery style, is based upon the fundamental Indigenous teachings of the Medicine Wheel.

The Medicine Wheel, itself, is based on living in balance within the Four Directions.

For further information I invite you to look at sites by Indigenous people about our cultural practices, speak to your local Band Office, and/or attend local Indigenous cultural events.

Not all Indigenous people believe or use the Medicine Wheel and its teachings.

Thank you to http://www.fourdirectionsteachings.com for some of this information I have used.
