SACRED 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.
SDP Founders Sylvie Minot and Wendy Heffner have offered this powerful work in California, Arizona, Washington, Mexico, and Australia.
In Medicine Circle, you 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.
Look below for upcoming Medicine Circle events. Keep in mind that some of the Medicine Circle events listed here are sponsored/created by a producer/sponsor in a specific area where the dates, registration, facilities and time are coordinated by the producer/sponsor and not Syzygy Dance Project, even though Sylvie Minot and Wendy Heffner are facilitating.
UPCOMING MEDICINE CIRCLE EVENTS
“Sylvie is an instrument of sound and dance, facilitating a sacred space for the co-creation of healing. The music is an essential part of medicine circle. Whilst we are moving together, we are also making the rhythms to which we are dancing. There is the earth mothers heart beating, in the grounding pulse of the drums, the breathing winds of the flutes, the bone penetrating rhythms of the rattle, and the angelic chorus of our voices. Throughout time and space, our ancestors have come together to heal, grieve, and pray in this way. As a musician and a healer, I have never known a space like medicine circle where these ancient ways are honored and continued with such integrity and creativity.“

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