Sacred and Mystical Persian Dance Workshop

July 14 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT


Sacred and Mystical Persian Dance Workshop with world renowned dance choreographer, ethnologist, and Sufi master Dr. Farima Berenji.

An introductory sacred dance and whirling workshop based on Farima’s Dance of the Soul project and research. The workshop will include various spotted and non-spotted turns, spirals and circles based on Sufi whirling traditions, sacred geometry, and sacred elements, as well as featuring beautiful and dazzling spins from Iran and Central Asia.

Farima’s signature project Dance of the Soul combines Persian and Near Eastern sacred and mystical dances, history, poetry, and the Sufi and healing rituals of the Persian, Turkic, and Altai Mountains. Having over 20 years of research in the field of performing arts and Persian Dance, internationally acclaimed and award winning performing artist and dance ethnologist Dr. Farima Berenji has researched and documented various Persian and Central Asian nomadic cultures, rituals and sacred elements. In collaboration with scholars and Sufi masters of Iran and Turkey, Farima includes new archeological discoveries and research upon Sufism and its connection to the ancient Sun Goddess and Zoroastrianism, the human body, and its symbolic meaning in the Universe along the pathway to the soul. Discover the power of dance as a gateway for self-growth and spiritual transformation through movement, music, love, and stillness.
