In 2002 I was living in Santa Barbara and went to lecture put on by the Santa Barabra City College called Mind Supermind. The lecturer was a native American medical doctor who talked about the medicine wheel and how the native American tribes used it to heal their members. What I liked the most was the description of how when a member of the tribe is sick they are placed in the center of the wheel, that the whole tribe is involved in the healing of the sick person, and receives healing from all the directions and aspects of the medicine wheel, mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. When I left I thought that's what I need to heal myself, and since I don't have a tribe a will create my own. I took a photo copy of my MRI and put it on a bulletin board and placed business cards from the various people that had been working with me around my MRI in a circle, it became my symbolic medicine wheel of group healing.
