Women of Vision and Action (WOVA)

WHEEL OF TRANSFORMATION

The Wheel of Transformation is a focus point for WOVA activities. The Wheel and its 12 sectors represents the major functions of any social body. The whole symbolizes the society for which we are all responsible. We identify with one or more sectors as our individual role; other sectors are where we desire to effect change. When one sector fails, the others are affected. We see the Wheel as a precious chalice which holds all of our potential. 

The purpose of this process is to bring ourselves into the activity of evolving the 12 sectors of the Wheel. It is a visioning process for the whole group. then participants break into small groups of 10 or less for further exploration of their findings. The process has the potential to be a platform upon which all ideas can be placed, letting the natural synergy among the separate parts awaken, eventually revealing clear possibilities for action. The intention is to evoke a fresh blueprint for the new millennium by tapping into the highest potential for humanity which is truly within each of us.
