The sun rises each day in the East, which is therefore the starting point for the journey of the Circle. East is the place of new beginnings — of birth and rebirth, the spring of the year, the childhood of life. It is a direction fresh with potential, the place of a growing promise that remains fragile even as it grows with the vigor of youth.
Any time you learn something new, begin a new project, or face life with renewed hope, you are in the East. The color is yellow.
Continue within the East, to Intellectual Ways of Knowing and Learning
Go instead to the next direction: South
Or you may use the table below to explore the directions, their associated ways of knowing and learning, and an example of each type of learning as applied to understanding tornadoes. (Note: The tornado page links take you to older pages with a different format that we have not yet changed because it is so content-heavy.
