“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
In this workshop, we will dance with our ancestry which live in our heart, soul, collective memory, and DNA. We will call on the wisdom and medicine of our lineage, the power of ancestral lands, and the spirit of the animal clans to guide our dance on this journey. 

We will beckon our bloodlines and sacred guides to help navigate a magical ancestral journey, weaving the 5Rhythms with our ancestral lineage.

Together, we will acknowledge, give thanks, embody forgiveness and healing for ourselves, our ancestors, and the land. We’ll honour and celebrate by moving our bones, blood, and bodies - gifts from our ancestors.
