The Walkable Medicine Wheel to the Womb of the Mother. There are many sources related to the origins of Labyrinths in many cultures around the world. Different traditions of the Americas use the term Male and Female Labyrinth (Laberinto Macho y Hembra). Male Labyrinths are tall and they have different ways to get out, so you need to get lost to find the way out, whilst in the Female Labyrinth, there is only one path that leads you right into the centre, so you don’t get lost, you find yourself instead.
The traditional labyrinth of the 7 paths is a construction that comes from the medicine wheel, therefore we can say that it is a walkable medicine wheel, where we learn the way we pass through the different aspects of our life. Walking it is like a regression to our origins, helping us to acknowledge where we come from and where we are going to in our life.
