Team Reflection Questions inspired by the Medicine Wheel

Below are some reflection questions, which we are using in the 30 Day Engagement challenge for National Indigenous History Month. I’ve used these with teams as a lighthearted way to connect authentically – and introduce Indigenous ways of knowing – in virtual settings. They are centred around the four key areas of the medicine wheel: the Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual aspects of ourselves.

Physical:

  1. How are you doing today physically? Please share an emoji.
  2. What is your favourite way to stay moving in these times? Feel free to recommend social media accounts that inspire you!


Spiritual:

  1. Thinking about our connection to others, who is one person you’re grateful for this week? If you’re open to sharing, please share why!
  2. Spiritual: Thinking about your connection to all living things, what’s your favourite tree or flower?


Mental/Intellectual:

  1. Our brains are pretty “on” all day. What is one way you relax your mind at the end of the day so you rebuild your thinking capacity?
  2. What is one thing you do to relax your mind on the weekend that any of us could do?

Emotional:

  1. Thinking about showing acceptance and love for ourselves, what is one word to describe your favourite quality about yourself?
  2. Which of the 4 areas (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) are you doing well in?
