The Medicine Wheel is a symbol found across many indigenous nations. The teachings and concepts vary slightly between communities. However, the most common shared symbolism speaks to the four directions, natural elements, states of being, medicines, and phases of life.
Our physical world is composed of four classic elements; water, fire, earth, and air. These elements are considered important energy forces and as a part of the medicine wheel, used as a guide and teaching tool for personal growth and learning. The 2018 fall collection introduces the earth element.
All living things are supported by earth, the foundation of all the elements. Its energy pulls in as if coaxing one back to motherly love and security. The Earth Collection is about connecting to this safe energy and trusting it will be there for you. Whenever you feel overwhelmed, anxious, or stressed, take a moment to close your eyes and feel the ground beneath you. This fall, let go of holding space alone and connect with the energy of mother earth to ground and re-center your soul.
The Earth Collection introduces fall florals. The red, maroon, yellow, brown, and orange hues connect back to the earth element. The flowers with root systems represent grounding into the soil and celebrate Chippewa woodland floral design.
