SpiralDancers turn to their Medicine Wheel lessons and align for appropriate actions – never reacting, and encouraging others to do the same.
ch'ináyihi 'díli ni'gosdzán… Freedom in EarthLife, the sacred journey unto itself is the sacred gift, equally visionary, creative, wisdom – inseparable connection.
shi'okaahí nágont'i'i… This prayer is ended! When we were young we dreamed of being magical, flying through spirit time and stopping momentarily on our path; faithfully we continue.
A SpiralDancer is able to focus full attention on a challenge. They have clear vision of Self-Empowerment, and recognize the value of the Medicine Wheel teachings and know they may need to take time out to allow for forward momentum.
Case Study: Focused Intent
Strong commitment to her dreams, and an ability to focus her intent were a deciding factor in the creation of Worldwide Women's Circle by SpiralDancing alumni, LeahRose Farber. Her tracking and careful planning on the challenge of creating an online global ritual forum for women was sharp and consistent. Her grounded vision meant she was also able to foster and retain good relationships as the organization grew.
SpiralDancers become aware, knowing what they are feeling and how they can best work with what they are feeling. They know that hurt and anger based in an early life trauma can effect life relationships in the Now and work through SpiralDance concepts and ritual exercises to move beyond reactionary life. As SpiralDancers we are taught how to recognize and develop our own interpretations of how we work with what we feel: we look for opportunities we excel in. We seek out our Guardians for coaching when we meet feelings that we are healing. Self awareness enables us to be all that we are meant to be in every moment.

Medicine Wheel archetypes are useful in the early stages of understanding relationships, we develop confidence and competence. The advantages of working with the wheel are that it produced rapid results and provides clear guidance, creating alliances moment by moment. The upscale benefit is that it leads to interdependence for co-creating. Living in the dynamics of the Wheel, SpiralDancing Life is a catalyst to helping students to find their own truths. Listen to stories and then inquire further to help others chart their own path. Such an approach results in students feeling accountable for their choices and being able to take the lead when required.
Points to Remember
pinu'u… I am I. Life is a special gift and we must affirm it in every action. Life is power. Life supports. Life provides opportunity, and is crucial importance. We attract support. We gather consciousness.
There is a spectrum of circle paradyms of time as defined as past, present, and future. Each "Circle" is akin to a teaching. We give students clear understanding of thematic energies and show them how to utilize this in manifestation. As they dance between Circles of Time, they draw out their own conclusions on living their truth. In the 1st Circle, they look at illusional truth from the past that created a weak foundation for life. In the 2nd Circle, they learn to interact and heal with clairsentience. These two wheels create an understanding of earth-human resonance, and by the time they integrate the 3rd Circle, they are confident in their lifepath and choices.
Setting intent clears direction and defines actions that help us manifest our goals – many times involving others in dialouge about our dreams opens doors we had not imagined. Projecting an outcome that benefits all is the objective of SpiralDancing Life.
édihi yúné dagodzáá shíí… In Death protect me, language has its limitations. Our perception resolves concepts.
We work with our best efforts, and the best support we can offer is via our group discussions. These Talking Circles easily lead to the Common Story of what is happening in our lives, in this moment – then we add the energies of earth and find new vitality for daily use. Sharing our stories and experiences brings about a relaxed safe space, a place of respect, and assistance that makes life easier. When the advanced, intermediate and beginning come together, hope is born, doubts are dismissed, and life is redefined for the better in each passing moment. Circling together is an invitation to open to all sacred points of view and co-create the future of reality.
Points to Remember
• Talking Circle is useful whenever you want a strong container for group interaction, or increased levels of sharing.
• Talking Circle is not guardianship, although it is the first skill of a guardian in implementing trust and development of an empowering lifestyle.
• To find the Common Story, each person takes turns sharing how their life is going, one at a time, with all others practicing active listening.
• Talking Circle is respectful of experience. We've all had a sad story. Talking Circle and SpiralDancing are tools that empower and give us voice for our truth.
• Earth Lunar cycles are added to discussions so the missing piece of our evolutional puzzle becomes apparent.
da'dohkeed laghé danhowa yitis dahit'ˆíí… We ask that we all help to see beyond. New circles, new gathering, awakening souls. New energy, new hope, the world made new.
