Medicine Wheels

Ancient Teachings for Modern Times

This illuminating guide to the Native American ritual of the Medicine Wheel makes an ancient spiritual practice available to everyone, Indian and non-Indian alike. It is a ritual grounded in the earth of daily experience yet open to the sky of transcendence.

The book also sheds light on non-Indian "medicine wheel” — visions and practices of Judaism, Christianity, and other spiritual ways — that bear uncanny resemblances to the Medicine Wheel.“For Roy I. Wilson, a retired Methodist Pastor, native of the Yakima Reservation, and the traditional spiritual leader of the Cowlitz Indian tribe, Jesus was an Indian before there was a thing called ‘Church.’ The result of his melding of the spirit of his two cultures has a very private, very intimate voice that invites the Native American, the Jew and the Christian to examine the web of connectedness between their faiths.”—Publishers Weekly
