“Everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round . . . The sky is round and I have heard the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind in its greatest power whirls, birds make their nest in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours. The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon does the same and both are round. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. Our teepees were round like the nests of birds. And they were always set in a circle, the nation’s hoop.”
― Chief Black Elk
Spirit Circle is a family circle that gathers weekly to play, laugh, learn, teach, and share with the 7 Grandfather Teachings being its foundation of growth.
Spirit School is an opportunity for the children to learn is a variety of interactive ways. We remove the boundaries of age segregation end encourage the children to be an integral part of the planning.
Womb circles are an imperative part of each women's life. We are encouraged to connect to share, teach, and learn from another. The Grandmothers say that the women are the promise of tomorrow - we are being called to STAND TALL for the NEXT 7 GENERATIONS
We are taught that all is a circle and we are to flow as so. Therefore in learning to honour each circle we are encouraged to connect circles to support one another.
The NOW POW WOW is an annual happening that allows circles to connect and flow into ceremony together. This gives us the opportunity to share, trade, learn, and teach from one another.
Ceremony is way of life. We are encouraged to live each day as so. Here at WBFIT Center we open our space throughout the year offering opportunities to join together in the gift of ceremony.
