Dance of Oneness®: Dance Your Passion! | Workshop at Hollyhock Center, BC Canada
September 22 @ 8:00 pm - September 27 @ 11:30 am
Spend the glorious Fall Equinox to connect deeply with what you truly love, align yourself with Source energy and ignite your creative flame through sacred dance. In our world today, to survive and be of true service, we need to be PASSIONATELY ALIVE and PRESENT.
Master teacher of embodiment Banafsheh guides you to come ALIVE through loving your body and your Self, and living as a lover. Dance of Oneness® is dance as a science of embodiment and a sacred path of love in 3 dimensions: 1. The art of dance—rigorous technique and self expression; 2. Embodying wisdom teachings; and 3. Healing and sacred anatomy. Dance of Oneness® draws from Sufi ritual and whirling, flamenco, Persian, Middle Eastern and modern dances, trance, Tai chi and Chi gong. Sufi teachings and the poetry of Rumi, Divine Feminine wisdom, Gurdjieff Work, Christ Consciousness, Chinese Medicine and the Chakra system.
Join in a nurturing yet thrilling weave of guided and free-style dance, Rumi’s poetry, whirling, chanting, yoga, meditation, wisdom teachings, a sharing circle, lots of laughter, and learn to…
1. Ground yourself and access peace
2. Find your center and execute movement from there
3. Embrace and express loving kindness as your true power
4. Embody your sexuality as sacred
5. Dance with ease and abandon regardless of physical restrictions
6. Uncover and express your unique gift
7. Open to the unknown with grace
Through peaceful groundedness, empowered embodiment, passionate engagement and playfulness, live your flame so even chaos feels like home.
Mixed Levels. Open to men and women, suitable for those with a background in dance and movement. The pre-requisite is a desire to connect your mind, body, feelings and soul through sacred movement. This workshop counts as 26 hours towards the 200/400-hr Dance of Oneness® Certification Program.
“My experience was deep, joyous, healing, profound, and liberating on many levels. I have stretched and grown from the five days I shared with Banafsheh. She is a powerful and wise loving soul, who radiates a deep kindness and strength…I am so very grateful I made the leap to attend this workshop and I have already signed up for the next one.”
