Greetings to all on Summer Solstice!
I have just returned from Chaco Culture National Historic Park, here in New Mexico, where I attended the Summer Solstice Festivities. I saw a wonderful Zuni dance troupe perform traditional Native Dances, and prayed the Sun across the sky, wishing for peace for us all. It was a great day, and one I'll tell you more about in an upcoming article - I promise!
Last week's article was about Summer Solstice and World Peace and Prayer Day. This brought up the topic of Medicine Wheels, which I discuss in this week's article from the Native American site at BellaOnline.com.
A Medicine Wheel is a symbol of the Universe and everything in it. It is a sacred stone circle, a place to meditate, hold ceremonies, pray, a Spiritual teaching tool, Sacred Space, the Wheel of Life, a marker of the Sunís journey across the Earth, a focuser of energies, and a bridge between worlds.
This article by no means covers everything to do with the Medicine Wheel. I will be bringing you even more articles on that subject in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, if you have a thirst for more knowledge on the Medicine Wheel, I encourage you to come and check out our Native American Forum, where I have created a topic just for the subject of the Medicine Wheel. I have already posted a few tidbits of info there for you to check out, so come on by!
The Native American Forum is free, and a we can all have a lot of fun discussing topics there with others who share our interests. All are welcome at the Native American Forum. Go to this site to join in the fun:

Send me a comment and let me know what you'd like to hear about in the weekly articles, or stop by the forum and say hello. I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I love hearing from you!
Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
