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.

At this seminal time when the veil between the two worlds is the thinnest, you are invited to dance away your restrictions even for a brief fleeting moment so as to listen and receive guidance, let go of patterns that no longer serve you so you can make room for a new story to emerge.
Immerse yourself in a fusion of rigorous yet organic dance technique with embodied spirituality set to magical Middle Eastern and World music grooves with Banafsheh, transformational master teacher of conscious embodiment. Through a yin/yang synthesis of passionate, exuberant and explosive movement with serene, peaceful and grounded embodiment, release the unnecessary and surrender to your being’s magnificent potential so you can be a true agent of positive change in the world.
Please wear comfortable clothes you feel beautiful in and soft-soled dance shoes or socks.
Mixed levels. Open to All, with or without a background in dance and movement.

Dance of Oneness® is dance as a spiritual path and science of embodiment— a joyful, loving and contemplative way to embody Spirit and live more freely, passionately and of service in the world. A fusion of the art of dance: rigorous technique and self-expression; wisdom teachings, and healing, Dance of Oneness® is based in Sufi ritual and whirling, flamenco, Persian and Modern dance, Tai Chi and Chi Gong. Mystical teachings and the poetry of Rumi, divine feminine wisdom, Chinese Medicine and the Chakra system are the theoretical groundwork.
“I have a new piece now, a new piece of the mystery, a new level of understanding myself, spirit, others.”
