Beginning in January of 2021
Penny Hinojosa began hosting hour long Zoom shows
featuring Grandfather Roy Wilson conveying
his experience and knowledge
of the Medicine Wheel.

On April 22, 2021 Grandfather announced

that due to the challenges of his age

and difficulties interfacing with technologies,

he decided to limit his interactions with us all to face to face.  We will continue with the Medicine Wheel teachings led by his students Laura Cyr and Dan Zarlengo.
