The wheel of the four directions is a map that offers clear and dynamic ways to recognize, re-connect and integrate different parts of ourselves that we tend to experience as closed, chaotic, overwhelming, or disconnected, which can cause confusion, anxiety, and lack of energy.
The wheel teaches us about the natural flow and continuity of life. And when we see and experience different parts of ourselves as natural qualities within the wheel of life, we open the space for movement, healing, and integration.
The wheel is one of the tools to work with the Systemic Ritual modality, which is a combination of Shamanism and Systemic constellation work, which is a very alive and dynamic modality for working with archetypical systems that can go from individual to very large collective experiences.
In a Systemic Ritual, we bring into the same space different elements of a specific situation or system, we work with recognizing and building resources around it, and we create space for movement and healing to happen within the areas in this system where energy is held and cannot flow in its natural course.
In the ritual, every participant that is in the group room is contributing to the work – like in old traditional shamanic practices, where the community come together for healing one or more individuals, and in this way, the whole community is healed and everyone that is part of it receives something.
