Medicine Wheel Make-Over is a program that encourages people to take initiave to make change in their lives based on what it is they want to change and what it is they are ready to change. This is done by developing individual personalized goal plans with each client. This program is based on the Medicine Wheel and the traditional teachings of living in balance.
Medicine Wheel Make-Over initially started with our culture program. Our coordinator was getting a lot of requests for cultural teachings so she developed the first MWM manual as an extension of the culture program. When the culture coordinator stepped down the program didn’t continue. In 2010 a funding opportunity for a pilot project presented itself. Our Director of Initiatives came across this opportunity and immediately thought Medicine Wheel Make-Over would be perfect for this. We were accepted for funding and began to develop this new program into more detail. It's still in the form of development so that at some point it can be eventually passed on to other communities. They can then implement this program within their community.
