This is the special Medicine Wheel given to Sun Bear,
with much ancient Medicine Wheel knowledge. Learning, working with and meditating
with this Medicine Wheel has brought many people to a closer connection with All Our
Relations, and with the Father of all fathers, our Creator. (Sun Bear's Vision from Medicine
Wheel: Earth Astrology by Sun Bear and Wabun Wind.)

There are 36 Stones in this Wheel. The first one, in the very center, is for Creator
and in honor of Creator.
TRAVEL THE WHEEL
Please look at the Diagram above and at the
Stone Medicine Wheel in the border to the left.
Can you see that there are SEVEN Stones in that inner
Circle around the central Stone for Creator??
There are SEVEN pages, for these seven Center Circle Stones: Father
Sun, Mother Earth, Grandmother Moon, Thunderbird, Turtle, Butterfly, and Frog.
Beginning (click here) , the page for
the Central Stone (for Creator) and "travel" the Wheel just as if you were walking
around it to each Stone, to learn from the Spirits who are honored and represented
by that Stone. We only go forward around the Wheel. You can "travel" the
complete Wheel, going forward, or return
to this Diagram of Wheel page, or to the Main page.
The next four Stones after these Inner Circle seven are the Spirit Keeper of the
directions Stones; one at each of the four cardinal directions: Wabun of the East,
Shawnodese of the South, Mudjekeewis of the West, and Waboose of the North.
These names (variable spellings) have been known here on Turtle Island for who
knows how long a time; very ancient. Please see Ch. II - Four Winds, part of a longer poem published in 1855,
based on American Indian legends.
The above diagram shows all 36 stone positions in the Sun Bear
There are three Moons in each direction quadrant of the Wheel, under the guidance
and influence of the Spirit Keeper for that direction. Each one also has its own "totems",
whose spirits will assist as you walk your Circle of Life, if you let them. Please click on
the Moon Name below to find out more about your totems and what they can teach you.
You will also discover a picture of a beautiful painting kindly supplied by The Bear Tribe.
(Established by Sun Bear to spread knowledge of the Medicine Wheel)
The beautiful paintings and poetry
are worth the trip to the Moon pages.

New Information by Al Staunton, Adelaide, Australia
"After reading Earth Astrology I realized that it being based on the seasons of the northern hemisphere and myself being born and living in the southern hemisphere, it needed to be adapted to bring it into alignment with our southern seasons.
This is my interpretation of Earth Astrology adapted for the southern hemisphere. For myself it certainly became more relevant once I made the adjustment and checked it against my birth date. Use the adjusted chart in conjuction with the book and you to will find that it will work for you." Click Here for Al's Medicine Wheel page.
You can travel to the Center Stone or any one of the Seven Center Circle Stones

- West Winds/Wind Daughter sponsors
Women's Gatherings and other events.
Personal Note: I attended the October, 1999 Women's
Gathering in Florida sponsored by West Winds. We all had an absolutely
wonderful time, as well as a deeply spiritual experience connecting with each
other, all our relations, and our ancestors. Wind Daughter radiates love and has
a true talent for facilitating these kind of experiences. We talked and laughed and
prayed and sang and danced; and were reluctant to leave and return to the
mundane world. (Page designed by Star Spider Dancing)

sites and individuals who have linked to Native American Cultures, who
do not have American Indian pages. This page furnishes these sites a link in return.
This page also has links to a few pages created by friends and family members.
An old Links page that I disconnected a while back, is also now linked to here.
