Anne Forbes, creator of The Wheels of Time and Place

Event date: 
Thursday, May 20, 2010 - 6:30pm

The Wheels of Time and Place is a set of blank circular journals that you use to explore your home place and the home place in your heart. In creating your own wheels using the blank templates provided, you pay routine attention to cycles of day and night, phases of the moon, passing of the seasons, and your own growth and learning. The Wheels can serve as nature journals, storytelling journals, spiritual journals, or a combination.

There is surely something magic about a circle, the way it influences us to be both grounded and expansive at the same time. Most of us have been taught to think of the passing of time as linear, with one event following another in sequence by day, by month, by year. Placing the same events in a circle helps us discover patterns and use them to communicate about what is really important to us.

Like a wheel on a cart, time turns around the hub of your home place; the metaphor is a journey taken through a day, a month, a year, or a lifetime of curiosity and appreciation.
