Shamanic Breathwork Sessions in Sedona

In this picture I am posing with Brad Collins, Star Wolf and Sara Claire as I receive my Certificate as a Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator on March 23, 2011.

Shamanic Breathwork TM beautifully enhances and augments the Core Shamanic Healing work I have been offering since 1995. It also is a great compliment the practice of SkyDancing Tantra. I am excited to be offering this powerful healing process in Sedona. I also plan to offer it around the United states and Canada in the near future. If you are interested in bringing Shamanic Breathwork to your community please contact me for more information at 928-282-5483 or email crystal at tantraforawakening dot com Read more at

Shamanic Breathwork™ is a powerful healing process that reconnects participants with their own inner Shaman healer. Old wounds and dysfunctional patterns are released and transformed, individuals begin to reclaim lost soul parts and remember their true nature. They reclaim their wholeness as they heal themselves, their loved ones and the world at large from a quantum perspective.

This experiential process is guided by the wisdom of each individual’s Inner Shamanic Healer. Each person’s breath-journey is a unique and highly individual. People report shifts in consciousness ranging from states of bliss to releasing negativity and blocks from their psyche. An experience of being reborn is a common occurrence, as well as a life review. Old patterns of dysfunction may be brought to the surface and healed. Feelings such as grief, fear, rage and anxiety are often released. New insights and solutions to life challenges may occur.

As the Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator I hold a loving and supportive space and may offer healing support in the form of bodywork, energy work and Shamanic healing.

After the journey participants have an opportunity to express their experience through the “Shakti Art Process.” Which involves creating a mandala or other piece of visual art to capture the essence of their experience on paper. They also may journal about their experience and also process it verbally.

Crystal Dawn Morris, began her shamanic healing practice in 1995. She trained with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies for 8 years and numerous indigenous teachers as well as her own spirit guides. She is now a Certified Shamanic Breathwork Practitioner, trained by Star Wolf and Brad Collins, the founders of The Venus Rising Institute. Crystal Dawn is also a Certified SkyDancing Tantra teacher and the founder of Tantra for Awakening. She draws on a diverse background of experience- as an ordained minister, Certified Nurse-Midwife, Reiki Master, and Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Practitioner. She has over 20 years experience as a healer and a teacher. Individual healing sessions can be booked with Crystal Dawn. Contact her at 928-282-5483, cell 928-862-0762. Learn more at

One participant said,”THANK YOU for the most amazing weekend! WOW is all I can say at this moment.”

“I love teaching this body of wisdom because it is so empowering and transformational!” Says, Crystal Dawn Morris, a Certified Sky Dancing Tantra Teacher and the founder of Tantra for Awakening.

Visit the Beautiful Sedona Amitabha Stupa

Amitabha Stupa, Sedona Arizona

Sedona, Arizona, about halfway between Phoenix and the Grand Canyon, is a must-visit place for spiritual seekers the world over. Since 2004, such visitors have been flocking to Sedona’s Amitabha Stupa. (Some call it Sedona’s newest vortex.) Sitting majestically among the pinion and juniper pines, and surrounded by a landscape of stunning crimson spires, it is a jewel to behold.

On any given day in beautiful Sedona, dozens of visitors trek up the short winding trails to the 36 foot Amitabha Stupa and the smaller Tara Stupa for prayer, meditation, healing, and the experience of peace in a sacred place. The Amitabha Stupa is open every day from dawn until dusk and your visit is free of charge. (Of course, donations to support the stupa are gratefully accepted.)

Map and Directions to the Stupa

The stupa is located on Pueblo Road, in the heart of West Sedona. You can print this map, or use these driving directions: From Highway 89A (the main road in Sedona), turn north on Andante Road beside the Circle K store. Proceed about a mile (toward Thunder Mountain) and turn left on Pueblo Road, the last left off of Andante. If the gate is open, turn immediately right onto the stupa land and proceed to the parking area. If the gate is not open, park on Pueblo. The stupa is a five-minute walk from Pueblo on well marked trails.

Group Visits and Handicapped Access

To arrange group visits, or to make special arrangements for handicapped access, please call 1-877-788-7229 or email in advance.

About Stupas

The stupa is one of the oldest forms of sacred architecture on earth, dating back to the time of the Buddha, 2600 years ago. Stupas are mostly found in the East, where Buddhism first took root and flourished. They are indeed rare in the West.

A stupa is considered to be the living presence of the Buddha and as such represents the Mind of Enlightenment. Stupas have been built to avert war, end famine, and promote prosperity and well-being. Their sole purpose is to bring benefit for all living beings, and the mystical accounts of the healing powers of stupas are well documented.

The sacred architecture of the stupa is deeply mystical and powerful, as it was birthed directly from the mind of the Buddha. For this reason, stupas are only built at the direction of realized Buddhist masters. The Amitabha Stupa came about as a result of the desire of Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo, spiritual director of Kunzang Palyul Choling, to build a stupa in Sedona, a place known for its powerful spiritual energies.

The process of building, filling, and empowering a stupa is detailed, precise, and awe-inspiring, and as far as we know, it has never been documented in modern times until now. Kunzang Payul Choling has recently published a beautiful, 62 page keepsake-quality book, The Story of the Amitabha Stupa, documenting its construction phases in magnificent photography inside and out. Please preview the The Story of the Amitabha Stupa and consider ordering copies for you and your friends.

“All negative karma and obscurations…are purified by dreaming of a stupa, seeing a stupa…and even being touched by the shadow of a stupa.” Stainless Beam Sutra, Lord Buddha
