“Everything in dance is poetry. Every movement describes a story, a feeling. The dancer takes the audience into a world of fairy tales.” ~Farima Berenji
Open your heart, body, and mind in this mystical session of meditation, breath work, and whirling led by Farima Berenji. We will seek the foundation of spiritual healing in the mysticism of vibration and sound, realizing how all life emerges from silence, and all things have sound hidden within them. We will open by awakening the soul in meditation to the word “Hu”, the breath of the devine, God, then journey into healing with Farima’s unique 5 element breath therapy. Finally, we will conclude by whirling (Sema) in silence with only the vibrations of the heart.
Please wear comfortable clothing and wear socks or soft soled shoes. If you choose to turn avoid eating a large meal 2 hours prior.
