Discover the medicine wheel garden in Cedar spring in Beausoleil Island. Admire the garden which is placed in one large circle to represent interconnectedness and equality, this garden encompasses many diverse traditional teachings which are sacred to many Indigenous peoples.
In this garden, you will find four quadrants which represent mental, physical, spiritual and emotional health. They also symbolize the four seasons, the four stages of life, the four elements of nature, the four cardinal points and the four sacred medicines; tobacco facing east, white cedar facing south, white sage facing west and sweetgrass facing north.
