Circalendar is a round calendar based on the concept of time being cyclic.
Get the 2017 edition and support our fundraising!
Circalendar is a combination of calendar and Medicine Wheel. It refers to the Native American wisdom tradition the Delicate Lodge Teachings that goes back to the Mayan people.
Directly inspired by this philosophy where everything unfolds in cycles and builds on the sacred circle of the Medicine Wheel, it takes this understanding of time being cyclic into the creation of the round calendar.
As a Medicine Wheel, the circalendar is based on the Four Directions North, South, East and West and how these are aligned with the Solstices and Equinoxes, the astronomical markers of the year.
The 2017 design is based on a medicine wheel called The Four Attentions.
The Four Attentions strengthen our ability to focus our attention. They offer a pathway to expand our consciousness, each direction building on the previous in a fixed sequence.
They teach us how to focus our attention in a life growing way and make us ready for action.
Southeast: Be Present – focus on the present moment. Open, connected and appreciative.
Southwest: Guards Out – focus our thought and our intention. Align with, adjust and remember our direction in Life.
Northwest: Look for the Teaching – focus on what Life is teaching us. See the cycles, flow and learning.
Northeast: Let the Little Child Play – focus on how we manage our energy. Shift, change and grow Life.

Circalendar background and universal geometry
When I first was studying Native American wisdom I was playing around with how the energies of the Medicine Wheel would fit into the year. Sparked by curiosity and from the place of learning about how everything moves in cycles.
Along the way I consulted my teachers and guides about the connections and directions and how it all fits together. I was in awe about the beauty of the sacred universal geometry of the relationship between the Earth and the Sun expressed in the perfect alignment between the Solstices and Equinoxes and the four Directions.
The circalendar is one form of a Medicine Wheel.
