January 2023

Dear Friends,

A big thank you to all who came to the Dance of the Soul Shebi Arus gathering and whirling workshop in Brooklyn, NY last week. It was so wonderful to share space and find hope together in an uncertain and chaotic world.

My long-awaited Beginning Persian Mystical Dance and Whirling as well as Persian and Silk Road dance classes resume this January, online and in person. The classes are featured as a three month progressive intensive. You may drop in for one class or register for the month. I am also offering Warriors of Light this month for dances of the ancient Iranian warrioresses.

Merry Christmas and happy Yalda,

I am so small I can barely be seen.
How can this great love be inside me?
Look at your eyes. They are small,
But they see enormous things.

― Rumi
