Are you prepared to shed your wounds of the past? In this segment we are entering the work of the South on the Medicine Wheel. It is the place of releasing our attachment to the wounds of the past. We heal our personal and ancestral wounds. On the Incan wheel we call upon the serpent to help us shed the past. This is a major archetype of nature. The shaman goes into meditation and shamanic journey to shed all at once rather than layer by layer. This is as the serpent sheds its skin. The release of our past prepares us for spiritual initiation. Irene Siegel discusses the work of the South of the Incan Medicine Wheel. She shares her personal experiences and interpretation of the teachings. Appreciation to teachers of indigenous backgrounds for keeping this body of knowledge alive. They believe that the Earth is dying, and that the new shamans must come from the west.
