32 COMMUNITY MEDICINE WHEEL GARDEN, 2015

WEST OF SHAW CONFERENCE CENTRE’S MAIN ENTRANCE

 


 

Throughout time, Indigenous communities have worked with medicine wheels for sacred rituals, ceremonies, everyday blessings, cleansing, and visions. They gave thanks, asked for guidance, used intuition, and understood their world on many levels. Guided by a local Cree Elder, the garden is designed to be universal in its teachings and be a place for people to meet, share, and connect.
