Dance of Oneness® is about embodying balance. It is a path toward realizing and living your full potential.

Sufism and the poetry of Rumi and Hafez, the philosophy of Gurdjieff, Goddess Archetypes, Chinese Medicine, the Chakra system, Western Anatomy, and nutrition are part and parcel of Banafsheh’s Dance of Oneness®. Integration of the self through full-bodied, robust dancing helps you open yourself to being a channel of light and love in the world, harmonizing with others to serve the greater existence.

It is learning by steps and growing by leaps.

Dance of Oneness® focuses on inviting an unobstructed flow of Chi (Light and energy) through a dialogue with Grace and balancing Chakras, to develop an aligned, and fluid spine and whole body free-flowing, undulations – lithe and free.
