Mindfulness and Mindful Decolonization Webinar with Michael Yellow Bird
Neurodecolonization, Mindfulness, and
the Medicine Wheel: An Indigenous
model of traditional wellness

The Medicine Wheel is a symbol used to represent wholeness, balance, and the natural cycles of life.
It consists of a circle with four quadrants: Mind, Body, Spirit, and Emotions. This presentation discusses
how our wellness can be improved by combing Indigenous and Western evidenced-based sciences into
the Medicine Wheel to examine how decolonizing our mindfulness practices, movement, sleep, humour,
collectivism, mild biogenetic stress, fasting, environment, genes, food, and beliefs can improve our wellness.

Dr. Michael Yellow Bird is Dean and Professor of the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Manitoba.
He is a member of the MHA Nation (Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara) in North Dakota, USA. His research
focuses on the effects of colonization and methods of decolonization, ancestral health, intermittent fasting,
Indigenous mindfulness, neurodecolonization, mindful decolonization, and the cultural significance of Rez
dogs.
