The workshops are part of the Expressive Arts programme of The Planetary Healing Centre and take place in their beautiful Community Woodland in Balerno

During these four sessions, we will explore the four directions of the medicine wheel: East, South, West, and North. The medicine wheel is an ancient tool or system explored by ancient cultures and traditions. It follows the movement of nature, the flow of creation, the rotation of the sun, and the changing of the seasons. The medicine wheel can help us to understand ourselves, how we function as human beings, and reminds us of the connection we have with all of life.


Through shamanic journeys, intuitive arts, and nature connection practices, we will journey through the directions and explore all their gifts. Each direction invites us to connect with specific symbols, natural elements, and animal totems.

When we embrace the flow of creation, we have the chance to reconnect with our internal rhythm, discover who we are on a deeper level, and access the wisdom of life itself. Each workshop will offer an opportunity to explore different creative tools and modalities (painting, writing, movement, sound) and relax with guided meditation and nature connection practices.

EAST: Envisioning the new - receiving guidance through intentions

SOUTH: Creating the flow - transformation into movement

WEST: Moving within:- introspection and letting go

NORTH: Embracing stillness - inner growth through contemplation

Creating art in a sacred space allows us to explore our creative energy in a much deeper way. The space is supporting and holding us tightly so that we can move through the entire process with ease and grace.

Our location: The Planetary Healing Community Woodland, Balerno (Edinburgh). More directions are available through the tickets event link below.

What to bring: The workshop will be indoor but we will spend some time outdoor also, so please wear warm and comfortable clothes. Bring with you a blanket for relaxation, some water, and a notebook.
