The Medicine Wheel: Maps of Transformation

by Barry Goddard

"I love working with a medicine wheel, it can bring a huge amount of insight and help guide you on your pathway. Barry Goddard ... takes the idea and shows you how to work with it to help in all areas of your life." - Rachel Patterson, author of Kitchen Witchcraft and Curative Magic


The Medicine Wheel shows us how to both live and transform ourselves while remaining in balance with the natural world. Indigenous peoples in the Americas, with whom these Wheels originate, have a profound understanding of what it means to be human that has been largely lost in the modern world.

This course offers an in-depth exploration of an ancient map that shows how human beings and the world work. A Wheel is very simple and experiential – dividing the world into the four basic elements of Fire, Water, Earth and Air – and on that basis it creates a deep and transformative psychology, a subtle and practical philosophy and a ceremonial form through which the community can celebrate the sacredness of life.

Barry Goddard not only teaches the correct use of the Medicine Wheel by exploring the tradition of the wheel but also encourages us to approach it with a creative attitude, to be authentic and make it our own.

About Your Tutor

BARRY GODDARD first came across the Shamanic Path in the mid 1990s, when the organised Buddhism that he had been around for 15 years was no longer working for him. The idea that the Earth herself is alive, and that a meaningful life does not involve ascending to a ‘higher’ realm, was deeply appealing to him. Within a few years, Shamanism changed his life completely, and did so again another 15 years later.

For Barry, Shamanism is a path of alignment and engagement with the Spirit, and the often challenging transformational processes that come with that. For the last 20 years, Barry has been writing about and teaching both shamanism and astrology. He lives in Devon, and walks regularly on Dartmoor.

Barry runs the UK Shamanic Community and Divinatory Astrology Facebook groups. He writes blogs at and at
