In The Fire of Grace DVD

Experience Rumi’s Journey of the Soul in Dance!

Banafsheh embodies Rumi’s messages, and with her contagious passion transports your soul. She dances the soul’s archetypal journey to unity with the Beloved through a whirlwind of Persian dance and spiritual Middle Eastern traditions. Like Rumi’s mystical vision, her divine feminine Sufi dance marries serene peace with the fierce, gorgeous passion of the divine. Banafsheh’s In the Fire of Grace DVD is accompanied by Andrew Harvey, teacher of mystic traditions, Rumi translator, poet and spiritual teacher, author of over 30 books, and architect of Sacred Activism.

Banafsheh’s Training and Performance videos


It has been my dream since childhood to dance and I never found out what really appealed to me. I saw you dance on birth 2012 and know that this is what I would have wanted to learn. I am 57 years old now and it's a bit too late for that . But I have had the joy to see and really feel through you what dance really is. Thank you Banafsheh for this gift that you bring to the world.
