Dance of Oneness® shows you how to embody your true self in the world through understanding the sacred text of your own body and from the guidance of sages.

Dance of Oneness® draws from Sufi ritual and Sama/whirling, Persian Dance, flamenco, Middle Eastern Tribal dances, Tai Chi, and contemporary dance.
“Love your body and your Self, and live in the world as a Lover” are the elemental messages of Dance of Oneness® that extend from a union with the Beloved beyond all religion, dogma and traditional understanding, and guide us to live the sacred in everyday life in very practical ways.
Sufi teachings and the poetry of Rumi, divine feminine wisdom, Gurdjieff Work, the Chakra system, Sacred Experiential Anatomy, Physiology and Chinese Medicine are the theoretical groundwork of Dance of Oneness®.
