I feel the depth, the love, the power, the unity of Banafsheh’s work and again I am struck that this is way beyond physical dance. Yes, the dance is the vehicle, the embodiment for what we need in this life and yes, she is much more than a "dance teacher." She is imparting the healing truth of our being and opening the door to longing for transformation and integrating of the whole of ourselves and God. And for that, we must meet our shadows.
