“Passion is the supreme elixir and renews all things!” 
– Rumi

In our turbulent times, in order to thrive and be of true service, we need to be discerning yet PASSIONATELY ALIVE and AUTHENTICALLY JOYOUS.

The time is NOW to connect deeply with what you truly love, to align yourself with Source energy and ignite your creative flame. Uplift yourself and thereby the world in one of the most beautiful, magnetically charged sites on our planet!

Since no one can truly light your flame for you and keep it alive but yourself, it is imperative to have a body based practice that serves as an alchemical vessel to nourish this flame and create coherence between your heart, mind and body amidst the chaos.

Dance of Oneness® facilitates a wildly accessible way to liberate yourself of limited narratives, ground your soul, and come home to your body with luscious awareness to rediscover yourself as an unlimited, empowered divine being, capable of living and contributing miraculously.

Banafsheh and Tony will lead a nurturing weave of structured and free-style dance, whirling, live music, chanting, meditation, mystical poetry, and lots of laughter within a community of like-hearted seekers to ignite the flame in your heart through a sacred marriage of all opposites, matter and spirit.

Dance of Oneness® is dance as a spiritual path and science of embodiment. It fuses three dimensions: the art of dance explored through rigorous technique and self-expression; wisdom teachings; and healing.

Open to all.

Dance is love made manifest. The time is NOW to connect deeply with true love, to align with Source energy and ignite your creative flame. Lean to be PASSIONATELY ALIVE and PRESENT to be of true service in our world today. Since “no one can truly light your flame for you and keep it alive”, says Rumi, “but yourself”, it is imperative to have a body/spirit based practice that serves as a cauldron to nourish this flame.

Dance to connect to you inner core of joy and weave magic into every aspect of living so that all parts of living are enjoyable. This is a secret in the path of dance, the secret of passionate aliveness grounded in peace that grows stronger in the face of calamity. No wonder Rumi says,

“Passion burns down every branch of exhaustion.
Passion is the supreme alchemical elixir, and renews all things.
No-one can grow exhausted when passion is born,
so don’t sigh heavily, your brows bleak with boredom and cynicism and despair—
Let divine passion triumph, and rebirth you in yourself.”

Join in a nurturing yet thrilling weave of guided and free-style dance at Hollyhock Center on Cortes Island in British Columbia, which is one of the most beautiful sites in North America – the perfect environment for Dance of Oneness. It is beautiful, lush, peaceful and particularly feminine in its serenity and sensual wildness.

Through peaceful groundedness, empowered embodiment and passionate engagement and service, we live our flame to the extent that even chaos can feel like home. Once you dance your passion, you begin to dance your life!

All levels of experience are welcome!

This practice of oneness, through Dance, with the Beloved that is so alive in the being of you, Banafsheh, has been a total joy! A truly transformational & healing journey deeper into the love within, into the Beloved. Thank you, for the gentleness & humbleness with which you teach. Thank you for touching my heart with such deep beauty and for the reminder that the love comes from within.

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.
– Irina Azarova, RN, Schweibenalp Switzerland, 2017
