Inside Liberate Your Body with Sufi & Expressive Dance
Transform your life through a unique combination of sacred dance, Eastern energy medicine, and the Sacred Feminine archetypes that correspond to your chakras, bring you home to your body and your holy sensuality. Activate the energy of the Sacred Feminine to live a life of embodied love, bliss, and wellbeing.
How do we access our sacred depths in a world that is wrought with conflict, competition, and self-preservation? How do we cleanse ourselves of the stress, polarization, and agitation in our world and reconnect with the purity of our souls?
Few practices can bridge the sublime and the sensual — and bring us into coherence with our own divinity — like sacred dance. Through sacred dance, we consecrate ourselves with a visceral awareness of what it means to be alive, surrendering our egos to the oneness of All That Is… and the possibility of what could live in us and through us. When we free our bodies, we also free our emotions, our mind, and even our soul.
Dance itself is a gateway to the wisdom of the Sacred Feminine that opens us to living love. It’s not about making perfectly choreographed moves; it’s about following our inner intelligence, natural flow, and uniqueness. Reconnecting with this organic rhythm offers a more direct path to liberation.
At a time when our survival relies on our ability to live harmoniously with each other and our planet, sacred dance is deep medicine. It grounds us in divinity — and a new kind of physical and spiritual equilibrium that makes it joyful and easy to live as our full selves in the world.
On a transformative 12-week journey with Banafsheh, you’ll have the opportunity to harness the power of dance to become a vessel for the love, compassion, and divine wisdom of the Sacred Feminine. You’ll emerge more free, relaxed, and whole.
You’ll explore powerful, bold, grounding, compassionate, and inspiring new potentials, gain an understanding of the flow of energy in your meridians, and tune in to your greater physiology using Eastern energy medicine techniques.
You’ll find the Earth as your true foundation and discover what you need to release for the fullness of the union of body and soul to be possible with the Black Madonna.
You’ll see through the heart of the Sufi mystic Hazrat Rabia, allow Egyptian goddess Sekhmet to fan the flame of empowerment in your solar plexus chakra, feel held in the soul of the world with Sophia and cultivate symbolic sight and powerful intuitive abilities with the Egyptian goddess Isis.
Banafsheh will share powerful healing practices that do wonders for alleviating stress and pain and balancing body systems.
She’ll also show you how dances such as Sama, the whirling dance of darvishes, and the great spiral are based upon the sacred geometry of the body and possess immense alchemizing power that harmonizes your masculine and feminine energies, heightens your health and intuitive skills, and grounds you in the present moment.
These dances also serve as portals to an intimate relationship with the Beloved and the vast Oneness from which your life unfolds — and from which we receive and manifest our deepest desires into the world. During your time with her, you’ll deepen your connection with your body, exploring your body as both a tangible miracle and a vessel for miracles that’s capable of shifting, influencing, and shaping your consciousness.
Are you ready to welcome the Sacred Feminine to rise within you — allowing love, compassion, wisdom, and reverence for the Earth to flow unimpeded into every facet of your life? Join Banafsheh on this profound journey to connect with the Sacred Feminine archetypes that most resonate with you — and live the path of embodied love through Sufi and expressive dance.
