A twenty-year cycle that began in 2000 will be coming to an end on the Winter Solstice, Monday, December 21.
Jupiter and Saturn will form a ‘Great Conjunction’ when they appear closer in the night sky than they have since 1226 A.D.
This celestial event will create a Christmas star--an illumination shining so brightly, you won’t need a telescope to see it.
Talk about the light announcing its return!
The darkness surrounding these shorter days and longer nights naturally draw us inward in anticipation of the changing season and a new year. This is a time of stillness and rejuvenation. When the cocoon gets too dark, look up at the bright star.
I’d like us to welcome back the light while still honoring the dark. Darkness has so much to teach and offer us. Light always returns no matter how dark it seems to be.
We will soon begin a new year, a new decade, and a new journey. Let’s move with the darkness and follow the bright light as it appears in our night sky.
This Wednesday will be our last class in 2020 and I invite you to come dance with the coming of the light while still cocooning.

ABOUT SYLVIE MINOT'S 5RHYTHMS CLASS
5Rhythms is a simple movement practice designed to release the dancer that lives in every body regardless of shape, size, age, or experience. While the dance itself is simple, it has the power to catalyze deep healing and creative expression.
The primary teaching of this work is: If you put your psyche in motion, it will heal itself.
The five rhythms are Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness. They come together to create a wave.
There are no dance steps to follow. Each rhythm has a different energy and tempo in which you tap into the wisdom of your body, bring awareness to the patterns in yourself and your life, and find your individual expression.
In Sylvie Minot’s weekly online 5Rhythms class, you will be led on a journey of self-discovery as we come together in community. The class is made up of two waves. The first wave is your time to arrive, let go of your day and settle into your body. During the second wave, we dance more deeply and explore a specific theme.
Any level of fitness, agility and ages are invited to participate. All are welcome and no prior dance training or ability is required.
Please note -- for the virtual 5Rhythms class, you don't have to connect via video--you can choose to call in or join by audio only and listen to the class through a headset. Some dancers enjoy going for a walk outdoors while they move to the music.
