What Students Say about Dance of Oneness
Inside Radiant Embodiment
What is embodiment, this elusive yet ever present concept?!
Join Banafsheh and the loving Dance of Oneness Community from around the globe to explore embodiment through sacred dance and conscious movement, the wisdom of the body, sacred feminine archetypes, mystical teachings and quantum physics.
We have all been under tremendous pressure and gone through a great deal of trauma in one way or another. It is time to acknowledge, embrace, release and purge the trauma and let the pain be a gateway for rebirth, coherence, radiance and LOVE. In 8 Modules over 8 months, take a journey from despair to joy, darkness to light, fear to love, confusion to clarity, fragmentation to wholeness. In short, take a journey to becoming fully human in service to the Greater.
Whether you just want to dance in an ongoing basis to feel ALIVE or connect with your purpose for being alive in an uplifting yet deep way, this Series is for you! Radiant Embodiment is a transformational journey of embodiment and creativity with a combination of free-style dance and the sacred arts curriculum from the Dance of Oneness®: a fusion of Flamenco, Persian Dance, Middle Eastern Tribal Dances, Tai Chi, Sufi and Taoist teachings, Sacred Feminine Wisdom and moving with deep awareness of the pathways of energy in the body, including the Chakras and Meridians.
Dancing the Wisdom of the Body
In each Module, we will focus on one of the Chakras and its associated psycho-physical-spiritual wisdom through guided and free-form dance, movement and meditation as well as explorations in sacred anatomy, physiology and the Chinese meridians or pathways of energy in the body.
Sacred Feminine Archetypes
The sacred feminine as the ground of being and the hidden soul of the world calls to us to see her all around us and become her in our very cells so we can enter into a harmonious relationship with all of Her creation: our precious planet Gaia and all her creatures, each other, ourselves, and our bodies. By embodying the frequency and resonance of the sacred feminine that corresponds to each Chakra, you will be initiated into Her mysteries, create a loving conscious awareness in your body and experience the embodied fullness of the union between the feminine and the masculine energies inside.
Mystical Teachings and Science
We will draw from the gnosis or the experiential knowing of the Sufis and the Taoists, and drink from the poetic wellspring of Rumi, Rabia, Kabir and other mystics, and explore parallels between these mystical teachings and the new Unified Theory of physics.
Explore the power of self-healing with a combination of authentic inquiry, intentional movement, key Acupressure points, foot reflexology, tools from neuroscience and positive emotions. Experience a full on transformation that comes from discovering and releasing where you hold deep-seated beliefs in your body that have blocked you from living your full potential so you can begin to feel your best and live everyday life to your fullest.
Through intimate break-out groups and sharing circles, we create an energy field that supports each of us in finding our unique gift, our own light which becomes magnified when shared and merged with like-hearted people.
This Course is suitable for ALL who love to move, all genders and age groups as an immediately accessible embodiment tool to ground and center yourself and become more conscious, joyful and energized. In addition, this Series offers trained dancers, yoga instructors, psychotherapists, life coaches, counselors, creative arts therapists and all other movement practitioners the opportunity to deepen their professional skills and acquire new effective tools.
