With a Medicine Wheel/Dreamcatcher at the center encircled by the Seven Teachings, this wonderful Spirit of Truth carpet symbolizes traditional North American First Nations Teachings. It will become a focal point for classroom discussions of the Native American culture.
The Seven Teachings identify the core values of truth, honesty, love,
courage, respect, humility and wisdom. The Medicine Wheel is symbolized
by the 4 colors at the center of the rug, each enclosing an eagle
feather. The Medicine Wheel offers a window to how we see others and a
mirror to ourselves. The circular form shows no beginning and no end
and is all encompassing. The center symbolizes children, located at the center
because they represent the humanities renewal.
Each of the four colors
within the outer circle is oriented to a specific direction and
represents, among other attributes: the four races of people on earth,
the seasons of nature, the developmental stages and elements of the
human being; Yellow: East-Spring-Place of illumination-Spirit. Red:
South-Summer-Place of trust and innocence-Emotion. Black:
West-Fall-Place of introspection-Mind. White: North-Winter-Place of
wisdom-Body. Outer Yellow Sunburst: This extra element represents
wellness and happiness.
The teachings emphasize walking the earth peacefully in harmony with nature and all living things. They encourage seeking healthy minds, strong inner spirits, inner peace, and strong healthy bodies.
