Fall here in California is a beautiful time to work with ancestors. The seasonal transition calls us to slow down and nourish ourselves.
In Aboriginal culture, healing is derived from ancestors through spiritual connections to them.
When you dance the dance of your ancestors, which lives in your heart, soul, collective memory, and DNA, you reconnect with Mother Earth to receive grounding, inspiration, and clarity.
When this journey is taken together, we honor, give thanks, and bring forth forgiveness and healing wherever it is needed. You can repair your personal psyches by calling in the wisdom and medicine of your lineage, dancing in alignment with your animal clans, and connecting to the power in the land that holds your Ancestral antiquity.
In gratitude, you celebrate the mystical relationship that connects you with the divine that reveals herself through nature.
You move with the blood and bones in your body, as the body is one of the many gifts received from your ancestors. with Mother Earth.
You beckon your bloodlines, spirit animals, and sacred guides to help navigate a magical ancestral journey.
Come join in dance and in honor of your Ancestry.
Breathing in, I see all my ancestors in me: my mineral ancestors, plant ancestors, mammal ancestors, and human ancestors. My ancestors are always present, alive in every cell of my body, and I play a part in their immortality. ― Thich Nhat Hanh, The Art of Living

ABOUT SYLVIE MINOT'S 5RHYTHMS ANCESTORS CLASS
In Sylvie Minot’s virtual 6-week virtual 5Rhythms Ancestors series via Zoom, you will explore your often unconscious family/ancestral patterns with ways to shift and release them.
Through dance, movement, voice/sound, and guided group exercises, the class will use each of 5Rhythm founder Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms—flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical, and stillness—to honor our past and create new pathways for healing.
5Rhythms Ancestors is accessible to anyone interested in transformation through meditative movement and offers an opportunity to tap into the generations of wisdom that live deep within.
You can purchase the series at a discounted per class rate or join a single class during the 6-week series. For those patrons who participate in the SDP monthly membership program, you can participate for free.
Classes feature DJ music that is facilitated by the teacher, Sylvie Minot. There are no dance steps to follow, but you are guided in breath and movement through the different musical choices. Each rhythm has its own 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. No two classes are the same.
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 Ancestors series, 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.
