What is Medicine 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. Sylvie Minot and Wendy Heffner have offered this powerful work in California, Arizona, Washington, Mexico, and Australia.
In Medicine Circle, 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.
We offer semi-private Medicine Circles for you and your selected group of dancers. This is a perfect opportunity to explore the Medicine Circle work in a more intimate setting with people you most likely feel connected to and more comfortable with. If you are interested in having a session with a group, please contact Sylvie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Being a part of medicine circle has been a unique and profound healing experience… From quiet stillness to roaring chaos, I feel met at every stage. Witnessing me with her gentle fierceness, she is a greatly attuned guide, assisting me through the journey… Although each circle is completely unique, I feel as though I’ve done this hundreds of times, feeling the ancient roots of our ancestors carrying us. This work is remarkably special.”

“The Medicine Circle offers a container of guidance and support that invites me to explore and express my truth through movement.” – Jim, Dancer
