Moving in a continuous circle, the shaman dances through moments of abundance, greif, tenderness, rage, and deep serenity. As she moves around the wheel, shedding layers of experience, she offers all of them to the fool, embracing her into the wheel.

Its message is that the ultimate power we take from the wheel of fortune is the power to accept each turn of the wheel, no matter how challenging, as a chance to create fortune within and around us.
