Schirin Chams-Diba

New Zealand & USA

Schirin Chams-Diba is a mystica, dancer, yogini, healer, and pilgrim at heart. From a young age, she has followed a distinct call to embark on a life-long journey of healing, adventure, and truth. From a long line of Persian healers and wise women, she has trained intensively in sacred dance, yoga, spiritual lineages, esoteric arts, and herbal medicine. After years of exploring the world, devoting herself to in-depth study, and shaping her own practice, she feels called to share her skills in service to the Greater Good. Bringing together all these riches has led her to develop her method for Essence of the Feminine

Workshop Description

Poetry of the body expressed in ancient meaningful gestures. It is a symphony of moving pictures and framed poses, a revelation of the deep soul through the Sacred Feminine Arts.

In our circle of sisters we weave mystical practices, wisdom teachings and sacred dance traditions, from India to the Near East, in accordance with our true feminine nature. We move in our own lunar rhythms and connect with our naturally arising wisdom, insight, vitality and joy. We apply the sacred symbology of undulations, waves, spirals, circles and infinity loops, linking in with the geometry of the universe. We conjur up and alchemize energies of earth, air, fire and water in our own beings. Dancing our prayers, we embody sacred teachings from times immemorial.

I offer my guidance towards the healing, empowerment and realization of others in love, truth, grace, beauty and order. Within this safe vessel, women can heal holistically, move beyond pain and trauma, claim wholeness with soft strength; through the principles of transformation and nurture by the strongest power of all ~ Love.


​Experience the Beloved in the 'Chamber of your Heart' and offer up a serenade in devotion. In this interactive song and dance workshop , we will learn songs and dance from the Bhakti and Sufi traditions from the Middle East to India. In a circle, face to face with one another, each participant can have a mystical experience through direct participation. Narayan, a master of music, accompanies and guides the songs with string instruments and voice. Schirin provides ritual movement and ecstatic frame drum. As have cultures since ancient times, our current communities flourish in unity, in communal prayer and empowerment in their sense of belonging. No previous experience needed, all are welcome.
