“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

Sufi Dance and Sound Healing Workshop

May 28 @ 4:00 pm - 7:30 pm


The workshop will be held in a beautiful, historic chapel in the heart of San Francisco and will be taught by sound healer Gabriel Gold and Persian dance artist and Shamanic healer Farima Berenji.

After a very successful, sold out workshop last January Gabriel and Farima decided to collaborate again, this time focusing on the “Spirals of Life” as the theme. We will seek the foundation of spiritual healing through sacred sound and movement, embodying song and movement founded on the Sacred Spirals of Life!

Farima will teach the basics of “Sufi Whirling” and sharing her expansive knowledge of Sufi dance traditions and meditation practices.

Gabriel will teach the basics of “Wordless Singing as Meditation” as well as supporting the “Sufi Whirling” sessions with live musical performance of Hang and Halo Handpans and ending the workshop with a deeply relaxing “Sound Healing Meditation”, utilizing Crystal Singing Bowls, to help integrate the day’s learnings.

The doors open at 4pm and close at 4:30pm. Please do not arrive after 4:30pm as it would be disturbing to flow of the workshop. From 4pm till 4:30pm there will be a complimentary Chinese-Style Tea Service.

$25 advance, online via Eventbrite
$30 at the door (CASH ONLY)

Limited to 20 participants only, register ASAP!
