Inside Poetry in Motion, Dance the Revolution Workshops

Learn from a master sacred dancer AND transform your health, your life and our world.

Our world is on the precipice of great change. 

Old structures are breaking down but not without tremendous resistance. As co-creators, we have the power to create a world that aligns with our highest aspirations. 

What is your vision for our world? 

And how can we come together to manifest our shared vision for a better world by tuning in to what we love in times of such uncertainty, conflict and competition?

What I know to be true is that all of the positive changes that we seek in our world begin first as an inner revolution. 

This is the invitation of Poetry in Motion, Dance the Revolution, a transformational 12-month series, inspired by the bold freedom fighters in Iran who are creating the first women-led revolution with dignity, courage and deep reverence for life.

Like them, we can embrace a vision that is greater than ourselves and learn how to bring the best version of ourselves into our daily lives to support our own spiritual growth, as well as our families, communities and our planet.

As we dance the vast experiences of our lives together, we create an inner revolution that sparks positive change in our world.

In this new series, you’ll learn how to:

  • Dance to create inner revolution through guided and freestyle dance — expressing your authenticity without judgment and regardless of any external circumstances
  • Build on the theme to liberate your authentic self and create long lasting transformation within you, your relationships, community, and our world over the course of 12 workshops (1 per month, every month this year)
  • Connect with the Beloved through mystical poetry and the vastness of oneness from which your life unfolds
  • Receive the blessings of the universe by dedicating yourself to a higher vision for our world
  • Transcend your fears, especially the fear of death by experiencing yourself as an eternal being 
  • Embody your sacred strengths as you release unworthiness, fear and disharmony, and begin to express yourself with courage, compassion, and stewardship toward the whole of life
  • Cultivate a true sense of belonging and freedom in your body — experiencing safety, ease and comfort
  • Discover a deep sense of groundedness and boundlessness as you bridge your inner divides, ease outer divides, harmonize with the Earth and remember your place in the vastness of life
  • Develop an intimate bond with the Earth as the foundation for all your movement — as well as your bonds and relationships
  • And much more

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

or simply want to dance to feel ALIVE

These Workshops are for you!

Dance is a sacred technology that illuminates the best in all of us, creating coherence within us and opening channels for compassion, wisdom, and higher guidance — what we need to manifest the world we wish to live in.

In each workshop, we will explore a poem from Rumi and other mystics, and seek to understand and embody its message through guided and free-style dance. Following the workshop, you can join our Beloved Global Community Circle just to be together and exchange ideas.   

We are living in tremendously challenging times… yet rich with the prime opportunity to bring what is sacred back into the world in a bold and beautiful way: our true selves.

We invite you to join us in this most revolutionary act of embodying your authenticity — guided by mystical poetry, the wisdom of the Earth, the boundlessness of your being… and a deeper vision of what’s possible for our world when we come together.

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.

Janet Sawatsky


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.
