Inside Full Moon Dance

Open the gateways of love in your body with feminine grace and pure joy and step into your authentic self through a delicious fusion of guided sacred movement, free-style dance, chanting and meditation under the Full Moon.

As the July Buck Moon illuminates the night sky, it invites us to embark on a journey of transformation. The Buck Moon symbolizes growth, renewal and regeneration — much like bucks shedding and regrowing their antlers. This process mirrors our personal growth and transformation, as we must shed old patterns and beliefs to evolve.

The Buck Moon signifies a period of increased change and self-discovery, inspiring you to tap into your inner strength and intuitive wisdom, navigating challenges with compassion and discernment.

We all feel the anguish of a world suffering from our neglect of love and our forgotten interconnectedness.

In this journey, we will dance to embrace that we have chosen to be here at this powerful time for a Divine purpose. Our urgent environmental crises are compelling 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.

In this dance journey, you will…

  • Listen and tune into how your body wants to move and express
  • Dance to re-member your original impulse for being here
  • Dance to receive the moon’s energy with an open heart and mind, letting its radiant reflection of the sun guide you toward greater clarity, abundance and fulfillment
  • Tap into your inner wellspring of abundance and allow it to flow freely into your life
  • Be guided into inner terrains of the unknown to experience both elation and stillnessecstasy, which is both bliss and pain
  • Activate a deeper connection between your heart, the heart of the Earth and the cosmic Heart by aligning with the rhythms of the lunar cycle and tapping into its profound wisdom

Whether you are looking for a deeper connection to your life’s purpose or simply want to dance to feel ALIVE

this dance journey is for you!

Dance and Movement Style

This gathering is a balance between guided sacred 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 Jalaleddin Rumi 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 dancing and sharing, 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. 

Audience
This gathering is mixed level and open to ALL who love to move. 

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

Certification

This gathering fulfills 3 hours of the 200-hr Dance of Oneness® Certification Program.

About Banafsheh

Banafsheh Sayyad is a master Persian sacred dancer, choreographer, activist and founder of Dance of Oneness®. She is a deeply profound and highly accessible spiritual teacher of embodiment. Banafsheh performs and teaches internationally, initiating people into the wisdom of their bodies. She inspires all to live in these modern times grounded in love for the Earth and centered around our abiding true nature. Her signature style of holy wildness infused with ancient wisdom ignites transformation and illumination in all those who dance with her from around the globe. Banafsheh invites the dancer within to remember, reclaim and resource the innate healing intelligence streaming through us and spiraling all around us. Her easeful instruction and welcoming spirit empowers students from all stages of life to feel a true sense of belonging in their bodies and passion in their lives, by integrating wisdom teachings proven throughout the ages.

Dance of Oneness® is the dance I had been waiting to do all my life. From a young age I had danced, read watched and followed Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, Joffery Ballet, Margie Gillis, Gabriel Roth and many more than I can name that moved in a way that spoke to me. Dance of Oneness® is the culmination of all that I had been drawn to in the other dance forms which seemed to be missing the main ingredient. Banafsheh has found the missing thread which is the opening to the Beloved, to truly give yourself in movement to the Divine energy that resides and moves through all of us from the Earth and the Heavens. I felt that for the first time in our dancing. It also reintroduced me to my own body, allowed me to accept my imperfections and for the first time in years swim naked in the ocean. All of this and more.

Transformative! Banafsheh skillfully takes us step by step to an experience of dance that brings me deeper into my body, to peace, feeling grounded and open to beauty and to love. Most importantly for me, the process brought me to experience a lovingness toward myself. I appreciate her presence of gentleness and fierce passion, and I’m inspired to bring my best self into my world.
