Expressing the Divine Through Sacred Sufi Dance with Dr. Banafsheh Sayyad

April 21, 2022 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Transcend the Ego and Feel the Grace of the Divine Move Deliciously Within Your Body



Do you feel fully at home in your body?

Do you feel spontaneous upwellings of pleasure during the day?

If your answer is no — or you’re not quite sure what this might look like — you’re certainly not alone.

The body is a vital sacred temple, the vessel through which we experience all of life — yet, sadly, many of us feel profoundly disconnected from it.

According to Banafsheh Sayyad, celebrated dancer, choreographer, and teacher, you can reclaim your body as the material part of the soul that it truly is — the gateway to the infinite, and the vessel through which your life unfolds. As Rumi wrote, “The entire universe is inside you.”

Through the practice of sacred dance, an ancient art and science designed to bring mind, body, and heart into balance, you can finally come home to your body. By reclaiming your divine femininity, you’ll harmonize with the earth and the cosmos as you transmit blessing into the world — and experience profound inner balance and joy. 

On Thursday, April 7, Banafsheh, the founder of Dance of Oneness, will lead us on the path to radiant embodiment through sacred dance and conscious movement — and act as a guide in activating, opening, and balancing the chakras, discovering Sufi teachings, and exploring the mystical poetry of Rumi. 

You can register here for Expressing the Divine Through Sacred Sufi Dance



In this free online event, you’ll discover:

  • How the flow of sacred dance can help your flow in life, shifting you out of perceptions of lack or limitation, and into a deep embodiment of your potential
  • The healing, ease, and bliss that emerges when your soul and body become one through sacred dance
  • How sacred dance can activate and purify your chakras — helping you feel empowered and unlimited, while also helping the collective evolve  
  • How the powerful Sufi whirling dance meditation mirrors the findings of physics — that all life forms come into coherence through the spin 
  • The joyful, healing, and sensual spiritual art form of sacred dance through a guided demonstration — drawing in higher states of being and wholeness as you prepare for the upcoming mystical conjunction between Jupiter and Neptune

You’ll learn how sacred dance empowers you to become fully connected to your body and soul. You’ll soak in the beauty of dance with Banafsheh and experience the resulting ease, grace, joy, sensuality, strength, and loving awareness.

Banafsheh will share how sacred dance can also help you activate the power and resilience to not just survive, but thrive as you endure individual and collective challenges — so you can become a radiant, divine human who can help heal our traumatized world.

You can RSVP for free here.
