Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values

The old yurts

The old yurt is covered with animal skin and some parts by birch tree bark. In the mind of a Siberian the yurt is always in the centre of universe and microcosm. The entrance faces south. Behind the fire is the most honored spot located on the north side.The left side is for women and right is for men; the right is also where they keep their weapons and ritual objects. The left side is also the cooking area.
Movement in the yurt is important and must be done in a clockwise direction —this direction is according to the path of sun. The path of the sun acts as a time clock during the day. The centre of the yurt is the most sacred place and is where the fire is located.
