Words from Apache artist Cynthia Whitehawk:
MEDICINE WHEEL - Symbolizes the individual journey we each must take to find our own path. Within the Medicine Wheel are the Four Directions and the Four Sacred Colors. The Circle represents the Circle of Life.
Medicine Wheel teaches us that all lessons are equal, as are all talents and abilities. Every living creature will one day see and experience each spoke of the wheel, and know those truths. It is a pathway to truth, healing, peace and harmony. The circle is never ending, life without end.
