An internationally acclaimed sacred dancer, choreographer, and transformational teacher, Banafsheh has blazed a unique trail in dance.
Born in Iran, her electrifying and original dance style combines flamenco, tai chi, Gurdjieff movements, and the sensuous ecstasy of Persian dance with the austere rigor of Dervish whirling, “fusing ancient forms with a postmodern punch,” says the Los Angeles Times.
In this workshop for women only, Banafsheh skillfully takes us on a journey of guided and free dance, whirling, chanting, meditation, and group sharing, all to invoke, embody, and manifest the feminine energy in each of us that can transform, liberate, and heal our world.
Along the way, we learn how to love our bodies and discover a fuller consciousness of the present moment. Untying the knots of personal dramas, we strengthen the threads to stay connected, maintain self-love and love for others, all stemming from centering ourselves in the Divine, our source. When the Divine is our dance partner, we embody our true self, and those whose lives we touch are inspired to do the same.
All levels are invited, from beginners to professional dancers and movement practitioners.
