Rising Fire’s Medicine Wheel
Developed over 20 years, the Medicine Wheel is an integrated body/mind/spirit journey into personal healing and empowerment. The program is an alchemical melding of ancient wisdom teachings and indigenous shamanic practices with modern depth psychology and Sufi traditions.
Rising Fire offers a carefully crafted process that engages the connection between our bodies, thoughts, and emotions as well as our sacred mythic journey to heal and recover our great strength. Many of the energy practices we learn during the Wheel, like Soul Retrieval and Intrusive Energy Extractions, are ancient, yet they are remarkably applicable to contemporary stresses and illnesses.
Participants discover, develop, and learn to deliver their own personal medicine with an embodied ownership of their healing process.
This work is a dedication to yourself, an honoring of your journey. It is an exploration of how wounding and limiting beliefs dictated the paths you were allowed to take. By healing your wounds and dismantling your limiting beliefs, you are able to shift your life’s trajectory.
*The Medicine Wheel program is a prerequisite for our Healer’s Training Program.
What makes the Rising Fire Medicine Wheel different from other Shamanic Intensive programs?
In this program you will learn many universal shamanic practices and receive rites and initiations passed down from the Q’ero, however, this Medicine Wheel program does not only teach shamanic practices.
It offers an orientation of emotional intelligence that creates steadfast self-awareness for the modern age. While honoring the traditional practices and our own lineage of the Q’ero medicine teachings, we support living mindfully and authentically in the complex world we inhabit. Using shamanic tools to find our center, we utilize depth psychology and wisdom teachings to stop unconscious beliefs & patterns from pushing us around. With this centered orientation, we can more easily navigate our lives from a place of truth and integrity.
Six Sessions of Inspired Teachings
These intensive workshops push the envelope of self-transformation, taking a deep dive into our beliefs and behaviors, uncovering the uncomfortable, and shifting paradigms that no longer serve us.
Each session builds on the previous, creating a strong foundation to grow, what we call, your ‘toolkit’ of shamanic skills, self-awareness techniques, and integration tools. Supplementary readings and assignments facilitate deeper understanding and mastery of skills. This creates a consistent cycle of discovery, integration, and transformation.
Participants generally join a Wheel in Session One, where we introduce you to the foundational skills, tools, and teachings that we reference throughout the program. Although you may choose to attend an introductory class we offer, you do not need any shamanic training to attend!
Newcomers can join up to Session Three but will have to schedule an appointment prior to receive the ‘crash course’ in order to get the most out of the workshop. Participants that join in Session Two or Three must also make up the Sessions they missed at the next available date.

0I’m almost speechless right now. So much to digest and unpack. It was a beautiful experience. Mountains and waterfalls and cascades of healing, clarity and releasing. Love and support and ah-hah’s, tools and tribe! I’m so grateful. Sarah G.Medicine Wheel
1I’ve finally found healing on a soul, mental & physical level. I really enjoy learning traditions that resonate with me at a soul level while doing this healing work. I feel seen and heard by the teachers and other people in the class. After completing all 6 sessions, I feel better, freer, and happier.Medicine Wheel
2 I can say confidently, at the lowest point of my life-ever; my friend literally dragged me into Medicine Wheel. I had no idea what Medicine Wheel was or what it was supposed to do for me. Honestly, I didn’t care. And then, I was in a place of safety, holding, non-judgement and I was given the tools to heal. It was not on a level of understanding that I had before but it all made sense, was somehow familiar and right. Wherever you may be in your life, if there is a sense that there is more out there for you- take a chance. Dive in. Medicine Wheel will help you on your journey to heal yourself with a community of like-minded individuals (Even if you and they don’t know it.) who are there for one another. Kudos on your Courage. Being broken open is the path to awakening, healing yourself and through that, those around you.
