The entire universe belongs to the dancer. If you don’t dance, you won’t know what will come to pass.
Dance invites us to take up space in the world with confidence, conviction and service. It’s exhilarating, joyous, sacred, sensual, transformative, communal, and disruptive. Dance makes us whole and brings us into rhythm with others. Though resilient, adaptable, and flexible, dance also breaks the rules. In dance, polarities unite and birth art. Dance is universal. Dance is freedom. Dance is the hope for our humanity if we accept the invitation to dance our lives.
Experience Banafsheh’s transformational teaching in a fusion of passionate yet peaceful dance to embody Spirit. Explore the secrets of dance technique and philosophy as a conscious vehicle to come in touch with who we TRULY are and can offer in this time of infinite potential and need. Discover how dance and movement can shift, influence and shape consciousness and the environment.
From high-powered guided, and free-style dance to the deep serenity of whirling, and vocal training, take a journey in your inner terrain with Tony Khalife’s blend of Middle Eastern and Indian trance music. Feel your fullest presence in the Here and Now with movement and voice work, luscious and devotion that bring you in touch with your core – peaceful, centered, strong, vibrant, open, free, and in community with others.

By the end of the workshop, I was present in every cell and I enjoyed being a fluid body. I have been in all sorts of classes but in no class whatsoever was there the opportunity to express oneself. To move as one is called to, as one feels like and to explore deeper and deeper one’s own body language and what it says. This workshop allows that.

My experience was deeply nurturing and connecting to all I am. As I dropped into my body, whirled and vocalized I kept hearing “Lay your head in my lap” from the Divine Mother. The workshop and surroundings allowed me to dive into the divinity I am, aligning with my soul in love, joy and peace.
Stowell Lake Farm is an abundant container of natural beauty and nourishment and rest.
Banafsheh is a noble, radiating being of love and beauty. Her commitment to divine embodiment through dance creates a reverent space for all to expand and dance the divine. Tony’s music is the heart beat of life pulsing love in every beat. An absolute to delight to be immersed in the flowing wonder he creates with such joy.
