Dance of Oneness® is dance as a spiritual path and science of conscious embodiment. A fusion of three dimensions: the art of dance; wisdom teachings; and healing, Dance of Oneness® is based in Sufi ritual and whirling, flamenco, Persian and modern dance, trance and Tai chi. Sufi teachings and the poetry of Rumi, divine feminine wisdom, the Fourth Way, Chinese Medicine and the Chakra system are the theoretical groundwork.
