"Simply put, Laural Wauter’s Medicine Wheel has changed my life in a pure, deep, and profound way.  She is the kind of mentor, coach, friend, sage, and healer that everyone should have in their lives.  Her gentleness, fearlessness, and kindness helped me tackle old wounds and emotional pain so I could finally heal.  This has been one of the best experiences of my life. I am sincerely and deeply grateful to Laural for sharing her wisdom, her caring, and the teachings." - Mary Beth King
 

"The Medicine Wheel Program is one of those rare opportunities in life that allows you to explore yourself mentally and emotionally, then identify potential difficulties and proceed to heal the wounds revolving around them. The program is thoughtfully designed to give its students every opportunity to successfully complete this healing journey. As with most things, I found that I got out of this program what I put into it, the depth of my exploration and thus healing was up to me. Laural has created a comforting environment that lends itself to stretching ones perspective. She carefully anticipates her student’s needs and confidently directs them upon the journey they create for themselves. Her expertise in communications, history, world religion, shamanism and healing arts makes her not only a noble guide but also a fascinating teacher. In my opinion, the Medicine Wheel Program could benefit any soul I know." - Dr. Patty Glover

The refreshing and creative twist Laural applies in her teachings not only inspires you to learn more but to dig down deep into your very core. If you feel your voice is unheard or your truths not recognized she encourages you to be open without judgment or fear.  It is magical."  - Keith Koch

 

 “Laural is a wonderfully gifted communicator, who chooses to share her talents and education with those who are open to healing, recovery, and growth. The “Medicine Wheel” program was an incredible journey and one that allowed me to experience tremendous growth. Not only did I experience healing and recovery as part of my journey, but I also received spiritual education and support from Laural, as well as the rest of my tribe members.”  - Sue Touchinski 

 

"I was stuck and unable to breakthrough the blocks that prevented my spiritual growth.  I read books and learned about the power of our soul. The words sounded nice but I couldn't really feel them. The Medicine Wheel Series has finally given me the opportunity to receive these lessons deep within me. Each class provided a level of trust and courage to go places in my heart and mind that I would not go alone. I allowed myself to feel the precious gift that was there all along. I now trust my inner voice. I saw that the essence of Jesus' message of love fits perfectly with these ancient teachings of caring for the earth, yourself, and others."  - Marcia Hutjens
 
"The Medicine Wheel embraces the concept that we are in control of healing our past by living with purpose and in the moment. By doing this we are able to see that we each shape our own destinies. Laural shares Native American and ancient indigenous teachings that have been lost to us. She incorporates world belief systems into her teachings, along with the psychology of Carl Jung. This is a journey that is transforming and empowering." - Jean Wentz 

"Laural's Medicine Wheel was literally an answer to my prayers! Laural guides you through the processes with loving care and gentle direction. I know myself at a much deeper level. This knowing gives me the ability to understand myself, which helps me trust. Trust makes me believe in myself that gives me my power. Others felt my power, but it wasn't until Laural's class that I did. Mind, body and spirit will be nourished."  - Angie Haen 

"Laural is a compassionate and true teacher and her willingness to share her deep knowledge without borders makes the trip a safe roller coster with a wonderful light at the end. Laural is the shaman with a heart that everybody should look for. Her dedication and her warmhearted personality will guide you to your true self. I would recommend Laural to whoever wants to go through that journey."  - Irmine Hero
