Although they lived nearly 1,000 years ago, Ibn Arabi’s path of gnosis and Rumi’s vision of sacred passion can galvanize our hearts and minds in our time of
complexity, turbulence and uncertainty. Dive into their transformative knowledge of the divine and practice of love and surrender through the Dance of Oneness. Immerse yourself
in a sacred field of empowering grace that supports you in living with reverence and light from your deepest passion in the very midst of life. Ignite your creative flame,
ground and embody your passion and what makes you most ALIVE through a weaving of sacred dance set to world music, Sama/whirling, zambra/flamenco, free-style dance,
zikr/chanting, meditation, yoga, Sufi teachings, poetry, history, philosophy and excursions to the sacred sites of Andalusia. Uncover the connection between the flame of
flamenco and the flame of the Sufi Sama/whirling. We will explore flamenco as the spirit of Shams and the meeting of the East as represented by Rumi and the West as
represented by Ibn Arabi.
Dance of Oneness® is a joyous, loving and contemplative way to embody Spirit and live more freely, passionately and of service in the world. As a science of
sacred embodiment, it brings together three dimensions: the art of dance explored through rigorous technique and self-expression; healing; and wisdom teachings. Dance of
Oneness® is based in Sufi Ritual and Whirling, flamenco, Persian dance, trance and Tai chi. Sufi teachings, Divine Feminine wisdom, the Gurdjieff Work, Chinese
Medicine and the Chakra system are the theoretical groundwork. Dance of Oneness is open to everyone regardless of your background in dance and movement, age, gender and especially
physical impediments. One of the main mottos of this modality is “don’t be limited by your limitations!” It is offered at mixed levels and is open to all,
suitable for people with little or no background in movement or dance as well as trained dancers, yoga and other movement practitioners. The only pre-requisite is a desire
to connect your mind, body and soul through sacred movement.
