The world in which we live is defined by the powers of four DIRECTIONS and stabilized by four basic ELEMENTS. Our lifestyle is determined by the four SEASONS and our companions on this earth consist of four groupings or what the Sweet Medicine SunDance Teachings call the four WORLDS. Within us, these elements, seasons and worlds are reflected in our heart, body, mind, spirit and soul. Both inside and outside of us humans the POWERS OF THE FOUR DIRECTIONS manifest their beauty and power.
Each of the directions, elements, seasons and worlds sit in a particular direction on the Medicine Wheel due to the essence of its energy and give away of beauty.
