Come for a day of dance, ritual and prayer in a beautiful urban park surrounded by greenery and wildlife. This is the second year for a daylong Medicine Circle being offered in Presidio SF, and the only one scheduled in 2017. The number of participants are limited to create potency and sacredness of the circle.

Circles have been used by many indigenous cultures throughout time as a place for ceremony and transformation. Medicine Circle weaves ritual, community, movement, sounds and prayer allowing us to reconnect with Spirit. We dance, and the circle holds the big, small, quiet, loud, joyful, still, cathartic, and everything-in-between dances. We use sound – drums, rattles, bells, rain sticks, and song – to call Spirit back in. We pray, for ourselves, for others and for the greater whole. Dance and presence are our offerings. Being together in this sacred way is our medicine.

No prerequisite required. This workshop counts as Waves for the 5Rhythms Teacher Training.


Sylvie Minot is the executive director and founder of Syzygy Dance Project, a 5Rhythms Certified Teacher, and the creator of Medicine Circle.

Wendy Heffner trained as a 5Rhythms Movement Therapist, and has used dance as a transformational practice for over 15 years. Together, they lead Medicine Circle groups in the San Francisco Bay Area, and around the world.
