Compass

A compass is an instrument used for navigation and orientation that shows direction.

Wheel

“Medicine wheels represent the alignment and continuous interaction of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realities. The circle shape represents the interconnectivity of all aspects of one’s being, including the connection with the natural world. Medicine wheels are frequently believed to be the circle of awareness of the individual self; the circle of knowledge that provides the power we each have over our own lives.”

Drum

“No two drums are the same – each has its own distinctive structure, spirit, and life based on both the culture in which it was made and the hands of the one who made it. The drum is not just a music-maker, but a voice for the soul within the music.”
