Introduction

This Clover has 4 leaves that, like a medicine wheel reflect Sensorial, Affective, Mindful, and Numinous dimensions of our life. We could also call them Physical, Emotional, Intellectual and Spiritual dimensions, or simply Body, Heart, Mind and Spirit. Together they address the full spectrum of our human experience, even though we don’t always pay attention to all four. We often naturally gravitate to one or two of these domains and might not feel quite so fluid or familiar in the others. That is absolutely fine. They are strongly interlinked, and by no means separate. That I highlight them as four distinct leaves simply brings specific areas into clear focus.

The 4 leaves are further divided into 13 inspiring ingredients: movement, body, nature, embodied knowing, sacred art, stories, community, reflection, dreaming, expanded consciousness, ceremony, spirits and healing. Some you will already know, others might be less familiar.

4 leaves with 13 ingredients

Each of these thirteen ingredients on its own offers an incredibly rich dish, a life-time practice and strong medicine. You will note that each leaf has many correspondences within their own ‘territory’ and also in connection with the other leaves.

At the centre of the Clover Trail Map, soul is welcomed and celebrated as the aspect of our being that moves and learns through our entire life. Soul spirals and meanders through our many experiences, never static, but always ‘becoming’. Soul is invited through words, poetry and pictures, but also through action. How is soul present in your daily awareness of the extraordinary, and how you choose to engage with and make space for this?
