Join Syzygy Dance Project founder, Sylvie Minot and co-founder Wendy Heffner in Tucson Arizona for a special Medicine Circle event. Medicine Circle is a powerful weaving of dance, sound healing, ritual, community, prayer, and connection in February 2023.
You will take inspiration from the powerful Santa Catalina Mountains, the Sonoran Desert, the Saguaro cactuses, the palo verde blooms, and the ever-present desert sunshine.
Developed by 5Rhythms teacher Sylvie Minot 15 years ago, Medicine Circle combines powerful lineages—Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms Movement, cultural anthropologist Angeles Arrien Ph.D.'s Four-Fold Way, and sound healing with Peruvian master Tito LaRosa.
In Medicine Circle, you dance, and the circle holds the big, small, quiet, loud, joyful, still, cathartic, and everything-in-between dances. Sylvie and Wendy 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. You will call on your ancestors, guides, and the spirit of the land, honoring your past and creating new pathways for healing.
Dancing together in this sacred way is our medicine.

Wendy Heffner trained as a 5Rhythms Movement Therapist and has used dance as a transformational practice for over 20 years.
