Dance of Oneness®: Dance Your Passion!
Date(s) - May 25, 2018 - May 28, 2018
Learn to trust your deepest understanding and rediscover your passion for life through sacred dance, luscious movement, and stillness.
“Banafsheh’s dance is a holy ritual,” says Marianne Williamson, “a joy to the spirit and an opening of the heart.” Join this internationally acclaimed Persian sacred dancer for a revivifying weekend of guided and free-style dance, stillness, whirling, healing, poetry, mindfulness techniques, chanting, stretching, meditation, wisdom teachings, sharing, and laughter. Sacred dance can melt inner resistances in your body and mind and open you to new possibilities. It can heal you and contribute energetically to healing the world. 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, allowing you to soften, so you can flower radiantly from the wisdom of your heart. 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. Mixed levels; all are welcome.
As this program lasts an extra day, it costs an extra $150.
