Wheel Of Awarenes

- The center hub of the metaphoric wheel represents the “knowing” of being conscious, while the elements on the rim stand for the “known”

- As seen in the diagram, known elements on the external rim include:

  • Our first five sense – what we see, hear, smell, taste and touch
  • What we sense from our inner bodily sensations
  • What we experience with our mental activities – feelings, thoughts, memories
  • Our sense of relational connections with humanity

- The power of practicing the Wheel of Awareness is to integrate consciousness by differentiating hub from rim, and intentionally linking these various elements on the external rim

- This integration of consciousness allows us to free our mind to learn to move recurrent thoughts and moods towards an open space of knowing – the hub

- This practice can liberate the mind from embedded patterns of cognition and emotion and help you emerge with a more open sense of awareness
