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.

It is great to hang out with people who are committed to healing the planet with love.

Tantra Tip of the Day- Peace

This morning Sedona was wrapped in a blanket of snow and as I looked out over the red rocks covered in white and I felt a deep peace all around me. I felt the world around me was at peace and I could feel this peace in my nature.

Today allow yourself to find moments of peace woven in your busy life. Can you recognize the peace that is always inside you hidden under your thoughts and actions?

True Meditation and Networking with Meetup Groups

I just recieved four Adyashanti DVD’s in the mail this week. They are powerful tools and I am learning a lot as I watch them. He explains awakening and meditation in an accessible way. I highly recommend his approach to meditation, which he calls True Meditation. He has a great little book, put out by Sounds True, by that title, which is a clear and concise introduction to his work. You can learn more about Adyshanti at https://www.adyashanti.org/ .

I have been interested in starting a meditation group for sometime and I found 17 people, in Sedona, on Meetup, who are also interested in a meditation group. I may start a new Meetup Meditation Group here soon. My experience is that meditation is always more powerful when done in a group. I am really excited about these Meetup groups. I am already making new friends through the Sedona Tantra Meetup Group. I am interested in hearing from people who are excited about tantra, yoga or meditation.
