Medicine Wheel Moon Series One: North/Earth Using gardening practices as a metaphor for exploring and tending to our inner landscapes.
Together we will explore the gardens that reside in the sanctuary of our hearts and discover how to discern what to prune, what weeds may have gotten out of control, what should be left to overwinter in the garden, what is tender and needs protection from the elements and how we can amend and enrich the depleted soil.
Katherine Fotiades will serve as the facilitator for this four part moon series created to lead us towards reawakening and strengthening our connection to nature, which includes our connection to our inner selves.
Katherine has called together both longtime friends, as well as new friends to serve as the guides and educators for this special series. Together we will weave together a beautifully rich tapestry of wisdom,ceremony and simple mindfulness practices that you can take home and wrap yourself in throughout the winter season. May the tapestry woven by this tribe of kindred souls provide you comfort, rejuvenation and peace.
Each evening will begin with a simple ritual to honor the power that reside in each of the four directions and will be followed with a brief meditation. Our focus will then turn towards deepening our connection with the direction and element of the evening. Our time will close with a grounding ritual in order to allow the fullest integration of the wisdom and gifts that you have received.

About Medicine Wheel Moon Series
The Medicine Wheel has been used for health and healing for many generations. By using this ancient and powerful symbol, we will prepare our bodies, minds and spirits for the deeply meditative and rejuvenating dark days of winter.
Together we will journey around the wheel honoring the Four Directions: North, East, South and West. Through practices of mindfulness and simple rituals we will offer our gratitude to the natural elements. We will also be using the energy of the Full and New Moons in October and November to support our intentions of preparing ourselves for the winter months of introspection.
By taking time to remember our connection to nature, we become more fully rooted in our connection to ourselves and each other and thereby become healthier and stronger both individually and collectively.
