Welcome to Banafsheh Dance of Oneness®!
Master sacred dancer and transformational teacher, Banafsheh presents dance as a spiritual path and science of embodiment, fusing 3 dimensions: the art of dance, wisdom teachings and healing disciplines.
“This is my language! An incredible technique for getting grounded and centered - the things dance teachers talk about ALL THE TIME but somehow remain elusive. THIS TECHNIQUE REALLY WORKS! And not just on the physical level, but on the creative and spiritual levels as well - all INTEGRATED. I learned and re-learned many things about my body and my dancing. I also found that blessed ECSTASY we hope for when we dance.”
Danielle Hartman, workshop participant, NYC
