Inside Sacred Dance For Freedom

Dance to tune in to what you love and transform inner and outer emotional, mental, and physical pain, limitation, and oppression into freedom, holding the joy and sorrows of life in a wide-open heart as you embody your wholeness, unleash your aliveness, and empower your authentic vision in service to Oneness — and a better world.

What’s holding you back from experiencing a felt sense of freedom in your body, mind, and spirit?

Where have you been unnaturally conditioned to expect and live within some form of limitation — whether in or on your body, your health, career, relationships, dreams, or your Divine right to create your best life? 

You’ll experience sacred dance as a path to personal and collective freedom when you join this enlivening course, designed to help you embody your wholeness, unleash your wild aliveness, and empower your authentic vision in service to Oneness — by activating Divine revolutionary acts throughout your body.

As we allow love to attune us to our true unlimitedness, we reclaim what has been lost to millennia of patriarchal conditioning: the sacred, timeless wisdom of our bodies, a felt connection with Mother Earth and the Source of life — and the hope, love, and goodness that connects us all. 

As we embody love we learn how to live a consecrated human life where the freedom of all beings is honored.

This inner revolution of love through sacred dance leads to outer evolution as we become the change we wish to see in our world.

In this enlivening course, you will:

  • Experience dance as a fierce yet tender expression of freedom — and your body as a channel for the Divine
  • Create unity, harmony, and body-heart-mind coherence through whirling — as you touch the place with you that never changes 
  • Explore sacred dance as the ultimate revolutionary act of love 
  • Reclaim your connection to the Earth — and the sacredness of life that exists in your bones as a revolutionary act
  • Activate your life force and allow it to ignite, purify, uplift, and energize your body and entire being during the Shake to Liberate practice
  • Learn how to access stability in the midst of chaos and turbulence — holding the joy and pain of life in a wide-open heart 
  • Experience your unfettered aliveness as a revolutionary act and Divine right
  • Awaken fiery passion grounded in peace — and activate your default state of joy regardless of circumstances
  • Free yourself from fear, competitiveness, insecurity, and loneliness — all of which stem from a sense of separation
  • Learn how Oneness nourishes your vitality and expression — and how your wholeness, in turn, nourishes Oneness 
  • Explore the Sufi Path as the path of living love
  • Reclaim trust as a revolutionary act that can open your life and our world to an expanded sense of possibility
  • Activate your intuition and access inner guidance by calming your mind and clearing yourself of distractions 

You’ll experience this firsthand as Banafsheh guides you through dance practices that reconnect you with the wisdom, wildness, and divinity of your body and its ability to align you with your greatest health and potential — and unleash the joy that is buried beneath the stress, tension, and trauma of modern living. 

In Iran, Banafsheh’s motherland, the basic human rights of millions hinge on the brutality and insidiousness of a heartless and power-hungry regime. There, the world’s first women-led revolution was born from the sovereign declaration of Woman, Life, Freedom and has inspired the world with the reminder of what we can do when we stand together for freedom — including standing for Mother Earth’s freedom to live with balance, health, and harmony.

This course presences the brave freedom fighters in Iran and the possibility that we, too, can free ourselves from the chains that bind us…unafraid to speak and dance truth, honoring the divinity of our bodies, and standing for a just and equitable world — all while remaining aligned to what we love.

I most enjoy Banafsheh’s wisdom and the way she embodies the most profound ancient truths that bring the movement to life. She is teaching us to love. And even though I’ve been stumbling through it woefully, her tenderness and strength beckons me to keep dancing.

Banafsheh magically unites all participants into a circle of interconnection, love, respect, and caring for each other, for Gaia and our world’s wellbeing. She is on a mission to liberate us from “smallness” and to lead us to our “greatness;” to bring awareness to our sacredness; to give us a ground so we could ground ourselves; to give us wings so we could fly!

Dance of Oneness has opened the gateways of love in my body through Banafsheh’s transmission of feminine grace, power, and pure joy! This dance is a homecoming to my soul…my spirit has landed…becoming one flow of body-breath-harmony. I deeply appreciate Banafsheh’s presence, her confident radiance of embodied Soul Beauty, which opened us all up to the Beauty of being in a woman’s body. I felt different after the workshop. Taller, more noble in bearing, more steady in my feet, more fluid in my joints, more toned in my belly, and more in love with being human in a woman’s body. Thank you for the space of freedom and discipline you created, for the sacred teachings through Rumi’s poetry.

This is more than a dance workshop. It is the true meaning of Dance. Banafsheh’s workshop is experiential – experiencing the states of beings I had only read about! The space she creates and the gentle initiation she offers allowed me to gracefully slip into a new state within myself. I have experienced many of her workshops — but every time, it is a new experience. I feel alive! Every cell of my body feels alive! I have had bodily injuries that have been healed throughout the years with her practices.

Banafsheh’s Dance of Oneness online classes have been a lifeline for me, bringing ease, balance, and deep peace into my everyday existence. I feel stronger, more resilient, and able to meet the challenges of this time. I am deeply grateful for this offering, and for the wonderful community of dancers across the globe.

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.
