Here we are! Today is Election Day in the U.S. I invite you to take pauses throughout the day and send out a prayer for our collective well-being.
Our anxiety has been building up. We are on the edge of our minds--waiting for something new while hoping for the change we want to see.
This week is also a time for celebrating our ancestors--the ancestors of the plants, the animals, and the earth. Monday, November 2nd, was the Day of the Dead. It is believed that spirits of the departed are available to you during this time.
Every year since 2014, I have led a dance session honoring the ancestors. It has been my favorite class while the veil separating us from the spirit world is at its thinnest. This is the perfect time to call on the divine spirits and pay respect to all who have passed--those dear to us, and those we lost during this unprecedented time.
You can call in anyone that you’d like to honor along with those who will help with our fight for justice. They don’t have to be related to you. You may invite in allies from the other side.
Let’s take a deep breath, exhale, sink your feet into the ground, and be prepared for what’s to come.
May we dance for the healing of the past, the present, and the future generations.
Sylvie and the SDP Team
P.S. No dance experience required. Beginners and those who think that can't dance are welcome to join us!

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.
