Let the Rose of your Heart blossom and dance you into Oneness with ALL of Creation.

- Banafsheh

The Rose Path of the Heart Series is a transformational journey of embodiment and creativity. It is a combination of free-style dance and the sacred arts curriculum of Dance of Oneness®. 

Inside The Rose Path of the Heart Series

The Rose is the alchemical symbol of the heart opening to love and of the cosmos in perpetual motion.

The Rose has long represented the feminine archetype of the Great Goddess. It is the supreme image of love, wisdom, creation, fertility, and mystery. Its gorgeous colors, deep fragrance, and the symmetrical arrangement of its petals around a golden center are symbolic of inner and outer beauty. Even the orbital pattern of the planet Venus traces the outlines of a beautiful Rose. 

The Rose Path activates the connection between the human heart, the heart of the Earth and the cosmic heart through love.

Our urgent environmental crises are forcing us to reassess who we are. At the precipice of disaster, we are witnessing what can be our only salvation: a call to awaken to our inner divinity and sovereignty and become one with the Earth herself. 

Enter the heart’s garden. Blossom into love, beauty, joy, wisdom, creativity and true stewardship of our beloved Earth. Journey from opening the rose in your heart to contemplating the mystery of the cosmic rose through embodying The Rose of Love, The Wild Rose, The Sacred Feminine Rose, and the Sufi Rose.

Whether you are looking for a deeper connection to your life’s purpose

or simply want to dance to feel ALIVE

This Series is for you!

Dance and Movement Styles

You will learn the sensual, ethereal Persian dance; the fiery Flamenco; veil dance; moving in spirals; and the Sama (whirling). The Sessions are a balance between choreography, guided movement and free-style dance.

Feminine Archetypes

You will be initiated into the mysteries of The Divine Feminine. As the hidden soul of the world, she calls us to enter a harmonious relationship with all Her creation. By coming into a loving conscious awareness in your body, you can invite a union between the feminine and the masculine.

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, Hafez, Kabir and other mystics. Explore parallels between these mystical teachings and the new physics. 

Healing

Experience the full-on transformation that comes from discovering and releasing deep-seated beliefs that have blocked you from living your full potential. Find the balm you yearn for to heal the wounded places inside your being. Discover the balm you carry with you to heal and bless our world.

Community

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 becomes magnified when shared and merged with like-hearted people. 

Course Audience
This Series is an intermediate level but open to ALL who love to move. All genders and age groups will benefit from the accessible embodiment tools designed for grounding centering, and becoming more conscious, joyful and energized.

In addition, this Series offers trained dancers, psychotherapists, yoga instructors, creative arts therapists, and other movement practitioners the opportunity to deepen their professional skills. 

Certification

This Series fulfills 32 hours of the 200-hr Dance of Oneness® Certification Program.

What Students Say

Bliss, joy and light emanate from my heart, spirit, and body while dancing with Banafsheh. After warming up our body and opening our heart, whirling is a delightful experience of dancing with the whole universe, clearing the dust of darkness, embodying sparks of light - the greatest experience of feeling divine and profoundly human. Beauty and harmony rise and circle as we become a colorful galaxy, turning and embracing both our shadow and light! Feeling whole!

Roseline Koener Student, USA/Belgium

I love the Dance of Oneness Online Sessions and the fact that I can just dance with Banafsheh anytime I want in my own living room. These Sessions are good for the soul as much as they are good for the body.

Leila Meshkat Student, USA

I continue to feel so blessed by Dance of Oneness. Meditation has been my way of sacred connection for 25 years which has been profoundly life changing for me. And now I am discovering such beautiful sacred power with my body in the dance and movement. Being able to embrace the world in all her pain with love from my body in far reaching circles and spheres as Banafsheh guides us to do is piercingly helpful, hopeful, glorious and indescribable.
