Dance Your Passion! | Workshop at Hollyhock, B.C., Canada

Dance Your Passion! | Workshop at Hollyhock, B.C., Canada

5-day workshop

Dance is love made manifest.

 The time is NOW to connect deeply with what you truly love, to align yourself with Source energy and ignite your creative flame. In our world today, to survive and be of true service, we need to be PASSIONATELY ALIVE and PRESENT. Since “no one can truly light your flame for you and keep it alive”, says Rumi, “but yourself”, it is imperative to have a body/spirit based practice that serves as a cauldron to nourish this flame.

Dance of Oneness® is this kind of practice as it supports your living your fullest potential through loving your body and your Self, and living as a lover. It is dance as a spiritual path and a science of embodiment, integrating 3 dimensions: rigorous dance technique and free-style self expression; wisdom teachings; and healing. It is based in Tai Chi, Persian dance, whirling, flamenco and Middle Eastern tribal dances, Sufi teachings, Divine Feminine Wisdom, Christ Consciousness, Chinese Medicine and the Chakra system.

Join in a nurturing yet thrilling weave of guided and free-style dance set to world grooves, Rumi’s poetry, whirling, chanting, yoga, meditation, wisdom teachings, a sharing circle and lots of laughter.

Through peaceful groundedness, empowered embodiment and passionate engagement and service, we live our flame to the extend that even chaos can feel like home.

Once you dance your passion, you begin to dance your life!

For women and men. All levels of experience are welcome.

I always get in touch with my best self in Banafsheh’s presence, not speaking of what has been brought into my creative life as a result of her magical work. I have gained freedom in my stage dance performances. I’ve incorporated movements from her classes into my daily exercise routines. I am mindful of my presence in my work interactions, and that I am responsible for making a difference in well being of people around me and especially of my patients.

Geometrica: The Architecture of the Universe | Workshop in Chartres, France

Week long workshop at the New Chartres Academy

Join Banafsheh with faculty Robert Lawlor, Jain 108, Karen Rivers, Jim Garrison, Andrew Harvey, Caroline Myss, Apela Colorado, Peggy Rubin, Calen Rayne, and Ruth Cunningham for 7 days including sacred practice, an opening session, a symposium on Sacred Geometry, immersion in the cathedral, and personal time for meditation and exploration. There will be artistic work drawing and experiencing sacred form, dream work, singing, as well as one private evening in the crypt, and another private evening in the cathedral devoted to walking the labyrinth, accompanied by Gregorian chant.

This year the sixth Liberal Art of Sacred Geometry, the structure of the architectural blueprint of the universe will be the focus of study. Euclid was the master representative of this Liberal Art, and its guiding spirit is under the aegis of Jupiter. Jupiter, carrying the principle of expansion and meaning, imbues numbers with form into a harmonic progression of Creation. Through studying geometry, participants will learn the formative principles out of which the universe is constructed and endures.

There is no limit as to what can be understood through the study of Sacred Geometry, as this science explores and explains the web of energy that creates and unifies all things. —Richard Dannelly
