"In the changing face of our world, to survive and truly serve we need to be passionately alive and joyous," writes Banafsheh Sayyad. "The time is NOW to connect deeply with what you truly love and align yourself with source energy to ignite your creative flame and uplift yourself and thereby the world. Since ‘No one can light your flame for you and keep it alive but yourself,’ as Rumi says, it is imperative to have a body/spirit-based practice that serves as a cauldron to nourish this flame."
