Call me a dreamer (or something less kind) but I believe with the right tools, we can fix what’s broken. Even when the task is as big as the world, or as small as me. That’s why I’m hitting the road!
On October 8, I’m setting off from Rhode Island to drive to Los Angeles and all the way back again. During these 3 weeks (October 8 – 28) on the road, I’ll be speaking at Wisdom Wheel circles for any groups curious to have me in for a visit. If you want me to add you to the itinerary, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks.
I’ll also be attending the World Parliament of Religions in Salt Lake City from October 15 – 18. But, if the past is any indicator, I bet the serendipitous meet-ups along the way will make this trip worthwhile. The image of the rider in Dances With Wolves comes to mind. I’m riding through the gauntlet, hoping to come out unscathed so another kind of life can start for others and me.
To all the idealists, dreamers, and refusers of violence, hungry for peace, justice and fuller lives: the Wisdom of the Wheel belongs to you. Perhaps like me you’ve intuited that there must be another way.
The Wisdom Wheel is a tool that can mend what’s broken. After 20 years, it’s roadworthy, ready to take on a life of its own.
I know the Wheel is loved. How? Because people’s hearts and eyes light up when they gather around it. There’s even evidence from people I’ve never met. Every time I discover a missing stone from the displays I set up in churches, cafes and art galleries — that’s a kind of proof that they were moved, too. At one cafe, I replaced the Love stone 11 times in 3 years. What does that tell you?
The Wheel has schooled me when I believed I was teaching it. It’s shown me that sacred witnesses are missing. We need to become them. It showed me people whose needs could be heard while it was making an offering of me. This road trip is my giveaway Journey. If I miss your town, I invite you see our offerings in our online Shop, where you can purchase packets on each of the Laws and one-on-one consultations with me.
It is my secret hope to return home empty-handed at the end of October having given away everything I have loaded into the car for this trip. Whether these sets of stones and cards are sold, donated, or swapped, I hope they land in the hands of those who need them and will share them.
