Medicine Wheel Study Group


Explore the Dharma and Shamanic Practices in Tribe!
Support and be supported by community as we step into the work of shedding our past and being ALIVE in our daily lives. The intention of this group is to encourage one another by sharing our experiences with the readings and to deepen our experience and understanding of the practices learned throughout the two year process of Medicine Wheel. 

Reading List Book and Shamanic Practices Study Group
A monthly meeting of students who have taken one or more Medicine Wheel sessions. The format will be split between discussion of readings and time for practices. We will meet to discuss a book from the Medicine Wheel Reading List and do a practice of a technology learned in the wheel.

Emptiness Dancing
In this months study group, we will focus on the book Emptiness Dancing, by Adyashanti.  Emptiness Dancing is from the reading list of Session One. 

“There is an invitation beyond the wall of knowledge, which is not to some regressive state before the mind can operate, but a transcendent state that’s beyond where the mind can go. That’s what spirituality is. It’s going where the mind cannot go.”      -Adyashanti, Emptiness Dancing 

Come explore and be inspired by the dharma with your fellow tribemates!

Shamanic Practice
We will practice one of the techniques we have learned in Medicine Wheel.  It may be a Kath meditation or a Shamanic Journey, an energetic reset or inquiry, mesa mestai or earth painting. This is your opportunity to practice the practices with fellow tribe mates! Hiyaya!

The group will be lead by Rising Fire teaching assistants Karen Martinka and Lora Patrick. It is an open forum discussion and practice group and there is no charge. The only requirement is that you have taken at least one of the six sessions of Medicine Wheel. We intend for this group to form and grow organically as we meet and explore together. Come play, encourage and expand, grow and grock your medicine!

If you are an out-of-town student and would like to attend via Skype, please contact Lora at to make arrangements.
