8-Week Virtual Intensive with Banafsheh

Join our dance community right from your home, and shift your focus from the outer world ruled by chaos and confusion these days to your rich inner world, deeply attuned with nature and the unseen. Activate the power of kindness, liberate your body and step into your unlimited self, extending love and compassion toward yourself, the Earth and all beings…so much needed today. Release fear and longterm resistances and blockages in your body and mind that hold you back from experiencing magnificence, ease and comfort in your own skin. As you release tensions and old habits that have kept you in limitation and separation, you will reconnect with your sacred femininity and reclaim your body as a luscious temple of ease, love and beauty. You will feel and look beautiful, energetic and ALIVE…giving and receiving love effortlessly.

Guided by the poetry of Rumi, Rabia, Kabir and other Sufi mystics as well as Taoist philosophy and divine feminine wisdom, explore the foundations of Dance of Oneness, and how to cultivate mastery and sensual grace in your body through a focus on the Chakras, the Meridian system, and quantum physics. Integrate your body, mind and soul in a sacred union and learn tools for self-healing, and extending love and healing into the world.

You will learn to ground and center yourself in peace, and open your heart and mind to a profound love for yourself and love life so you can navigate these challenging times with grace, balance, strength and exuberance. In our time together, we will journey into guided and free-style dance, whirling, Sufi teachings, wisdom teachings from the East & West, stretching, meditation, lots of laughter, and optional participation in a sharing circle with a community of like-hearted wild, noble people.

Thursdays are devoted to Sama (whirling). We will also dance with veils, so make sure you have one.

Mixed levels – suitable for everyone who loves to move as well as people with some background in movement or dance, trained dancers, yoga and other movement practitioners.

What People Are Saying

Opening the gateways of Love in my body through the transmission of feminine grace, power and pure joy! This dance is a home-coming to my soul. I feel different after the sessions. Taller, more noble in bearing, more steady in my feet, more fluid in my joints, more toned in my belly, more in love with being human in a woman’s body! Christa Ray

Banafsheh teaches with such a deeply embodied awareness and love that touches my innermost being. My receptivity has deepened and I feel I am more connected to the living present moment.  Isabelle Spaeti
