Tantra Tip of the Day- Practice Enlightened Sex

I have been studying David Deida’s work for about 5 years and I particularly like his 6 CD set on Enlightened Sex and the Enlightened Sex Manual is good too. I will be offering a workshop May 22-23,2010 in Sedona, covering many of these skills. It is called Awakening the Ecstatic Body:The Full Body Orgasm and Beyond.

Learn About Enlightened Sex
Finding Freedom & Fullness Through Sexual Union

On Enlightened Sex, David presents his first full-length audio curriculum for transforming your lovemaking. In this seven-hour workshop on the art of engaged love, you are invited to explore:

* Arousing unbearable pleasure to heal old wounds and melt open beyond fear
* The rules of “sexual polarity” (the key to physical attraction)
* Breathing exercises to cultivate mystical sexual experience
* The three types of women’s orgasm – and how to develop the trust each requires, and much more.

Through ten in-depth sessions of guided practices, sexual skills, and provocative insights into the nature of human sexuality, David Deida shows you how to sustain the ecstasy of deep sex so that during your intimate encounters – and in every minute of your life – you are a beacon of conscious light for everyone, beaming with the effulgence of Enlightened Sex.

A bit of the story of Crystal Dawn

Here I am in 2007 with my 3 grandkids shortly after Aria was born.

I live in Sedona, AZ. I have been here almost 4 years. I moved here from Sonoma County, CA where I lived for 15 years. My plan was to never leave the little piece of paradise I called home. In March 2005 I was in Tucson, AZ for the birth of my second grandchild. About a week aftermy Granddaughter was born I went to see a friend in Sedona. I had been there twice before. This time when I saw the red rocks my heart cracked open and I knew I had to move to Sedona. I went home and sold my house, quit my job and moved to Sedona with the idea I would take a year off to write a book and learn about being verses doing. It has been quite a journey.

I have been a certified nurse-midwife since 1987 and have delivered almost 1800 babies; I have been at another 500 births as a nurse. I am passionate about birth and I was becoming very disheartened by the direction birth was taking in the hospitals. I felt I needed a break from being a midwife and wanted to write a book that might help women wakeup to what they are missing by choosing the medical model of birth. I wrote a rough draft of my book but couldn’t complete it because it was too emotional for me at that time. I am just beginning to feel that it is time to get back to writing it. Last night I saw a wonderful video called Orgasmic Birth that reminded me of my deep desire to shift the birthing paradigm in this country.

I studied Core Shamanism with Michael Harner from 1992 through 2000. In 1995 I started a small Shamanic healing and counseling practice in my forest home in Occidental. Shamanism helped me to deepen my own spiritual practice and heal myself on many levels. I also did 6 Vision Quests over 9 years, the last one being shortly after 9/11/01. These were all very powerful and life changing experiences, much of what I received in my last vision quest is beginning to manifest now.

Since moving to Sedona I have become a certified SkyDancing Tantra teacher. I teach workshops, do events and offer intimacy coaching in person and on the phone. Tantra has also deepened my spiritual practice in amazing ways. I have also been meditating and do self-inquiry work. My desire is to get the Tantra teachings to the masses so the whole planet can discover tools for waking up from the dream, called life.

I learned about David Deida’s work through a workshop called the Yin and Yang of Ecstasy taught my Margot Anand and Jim Benson in 2003 at Harbin Hot Springs. Since then a big part of my spiritual life has been about integrating my inner male and female and moving from a place of separation into wholeness. The past year I have been in a deep process of learning to let go of control and go with the flow. I have been encouraging my feminine side to open, trust and surrender.

I have 2 sons, Eli, 36 and Josh, 32. Eli, has been with his wife Tara for 15 years and they now have 3 kids,11,4 and 2. I am 54 years old and single. I have a few men in my life but no one who wants to commit to the deep spiritual relationship practice I desire. I am open to meeting my beloved and exploring the depths of relationship with Tantra, meditation, self-inquiry and DD’s work.
