Dance of Oneness® | Workshop at Rowe Center, MA

3-day workshop at Rowe Center, Rowe, MA


The time is NOW to surrender to the power of love and dance to liberate your body so you can experience the living fiery passion in your heart that can initiate you into being a true human being. Dance in community with others to align your body, heart, and mind with your purpose for being alive.

Dance with the whole of your life, with the whole of your passion, with all of your pain, and with all of your hunger for love so dance can heal you and help heal our world by transforming your resistances to possibilities.

Join Banafsheh in a nurturing yet rigorous weave of guided and free-style dance, stillness, whirling, healing movement, Rumi’s poetry, mindfulness techniques, chanting, stretching, meditation, wisdom teachings, a sharing circle and lots of laughter.

Experience the profound movement meditation of Sama (whirling) as a way to surrender, listen for guidance from your soul, and uncover and nourish your passion. Journey into grounding, releasing, centering, and opening techniques that connect you to the core of your being and allow you to soften, so you can flower radiantly from the wisdom of your heart.

Through peaceful groundedness, empowered embodiment and passionate engagement and service, come home to your body and soul.

All are welcome / Mixed levels

Banafsheh facilitates a sensuous, feminine, powerful embodiment of the soul, a spiritual path that I am dedicating myself to exploring. She holds a loving and vibrant energy for the room that enables me to go further than I could by myself.
– Susanne Bowra, Switzerland, 2017

Passion burns down every branch of exhaustion.
Passion is the supreme alchemical elixir, and renews all things.
Let divine passion triumph, and rebirth you in yourself.
– Rumi

The extreme times we live in demand that we be PRESENT, PASSIONATELY ALIVE and stand in and for what we believe in.

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.”
Jeri Preston, The Rowe Center, MA 2016

Dance Your Passion at Hollyhock

Dance Your Passion at Hollyhock

My heart is so full from our 5 days of Dance Your Passion at Hollyhock September 22-27. Love and gratitude to all the dancers who came and danced into being a circle of oneness that brought all of us to wholeness in grace. We were as old as 6 and as young as 76…we cried together, we laughed together and we made magic…May our harmony, love and respect for each other and for all of LIFE reverberate into the world…
