Book Description

4 July 2008
The View Through the Medicine Wheel is a magnificent reflection on how to live creative, healthy and happy lives. We are all on a great journey - how different would your life be if you had a good map? Native American wisdom teachings of the Medicine Wheel explain how the Cosmos works and our place in it. Our ancestors saw the world in terms of circles and life cycles. The Star Maiden's Circle reflects life through the eight directions. This book of life maps shows you how to avoid pitfalls and master your own self. It presents the circle of the Egoic self - how we create a life of problems and dramas - and the circle of the Authentic self which teaches how to discard old habits and addictions. The Medicine Wheel culminates in the Twenty Count which is the Cosmos revealed in all its beauty and complexity. Shamanism is spiritual, ecological and psychological. No other book does full justice to the fabulous medicine wheel teachings.

5.0 out of 5 stars A guide for my soul 18 Nov 2008
By jo
A view through the medicine wheel came to me at a critical point in my life when I clearly needed guidance and direction on my own path. I literally called for help and this book arrived in my hands. As I made my way through the chapters I felt a sense of clarity developing within me. After experiencing months of deep confusion and some sorrow, this book truly helped me to find myself; to realise that all I had learned and experienced so far is all good; is all right and that by just being, I am doing enough. I am so very grateful to the Author, Leo Rutherford, for his wisdom in words explaining so much about us as human beings, our emotions, our relation to others and our precious planet, the medicine wheel helping me to see who I truly am and speak my truth. I highly recommend this book for anyone searching for answers to questions about their own existence, direction, dreams, goals and desires and how to 'be'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Book, Incredible Insights 21 Sep 2011
I bought this book after attending some shamanic journey workshops with Leo Rutherford at a small festival called Tribal Earth. It is the first book I have read about the subject and the book has blown my mind. Rutherford has a great way of expressing these ancient truths, of relating them to this crazy 'cock-eyed' modern culture we live in, and he does it with humour and simplicity. I am interested in psychology and healing and these shamanic maps of how the universe works; of how we work, make such incredible sense. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The View through the Medicine Wheel 9 Oct 2008
By Tami Brady TOP 500 REVIEWER
There is a natural flow to life. Sometimes we don't recognize it. We get so caught up in the chaos of everyday life. We get fixated on impressing others, making more money, and trying to prove we are someone special. It's hard work and it takes all of our energy.

Somewhere along the line, we forget the important things. We spend so much time pushing and proving that we start to believe that life is difficult. In doing so, we actually make life difficult and ensure that it will continue to be so, like a self fulfilled prophecy.

Life doesn't have to be a struggle. The View through the Medicine Wheel shows us how to regain the natural flow of living while essentially finding ourselves. Based upon the Medicine Wheel, the author compares healthy and healthy balances. Using these aspects, we can work through our issues, mistaken beliefs, and unhealthy habits.

Based on Shamanic processes, The View through the Medicine Wheel is a very developed book. I resonate with the personal journey aspect of the exercises. I also appreciated that the author explained things from a variety of different angles, especially on some of the more complex maps.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Medicine Wheel 29 Dec 2010
My husband and I found this book very informative, down to earth and easy to read. The content took a common sense approach and it was easy to identify with the message the book conveyed. I found it went on a bit by the end of the book, but nevertheless I learnt a lot and hope to apply the content very soon.
