Crystal Dawn is in Chicago, September 29-October 4

Wednesday, Sept. 29: Pot luck and Exploring Masculine & Feminine Energy

This evening we will explore the qualities of masculine and feminine both within ourselves and in our relationships. We will explore the difference in the qualities of masculine and feminine energy through movement, dialog in dyads and conscious touch. This will increase your awareness of sexual polarity and how it affects your relationships. By shining the “light of consciousness” on these two forces you will learn how to create more presence, flow and harmony in your life. This exciting work is foundational to Tantric practice and can have immediate and profound results in your life. Open to individuals and couples of all ages and all levels of experience.

Private Coaching and Healing Sessions

Thursday, Sept. 30 and Friday, Oct. 1: Private coaching with Crystal Dawn for individuals and/or couples.

Please call Crystal at 928-282-5483 or Cell 928-862-0762 to schedule a session.

Couples coaching sessions can help you ignite your passion and deepen your connection with your partner. These sessions are customized to meet your needs and unfold in a container of respect, compassion, and safety. Relationships offer fertile soil for growth. You are a mirror for your beloved to see both their beauty and their shadow. In these sessions you will learn how to communicate your desires and create your dreams as you transform together.

Individual sessions are for anyone who wants to live a more vibrant, conscious, and abundant life. The journey is one of transformation; remembering your true self and deepening your connection to Source. As you release blocked energy and expand into bliss, you experience the abundance that is all around you and magic begins to unfold. The journey is about being… not doing; abundance flows, vitality increases, and ecstasy expands. You become the creator of your experience. Tantra coaching sessions can be done in person and/or over the phone.

Friday Oct 1, 7 pm: Heart Puja and an Introduction to Sky Dancing Tantra.

This event celebrates the joy of living as we create conscious community. The evening is dedicated to celebrating God/Goddess within each of us through breath, movement, guided visualization, and conscious communication. The intention is to open the heart and expand our capacity for loving connection. We strive to create a safe, respectful, and comfortable environment for all to open and connect. Are are welcome to attend.

Sunday Oct. 3, 1-6 pm: Discover the Power of “Kundalini Massage”

Activate the Kundalini
Touch your beloved in a new way
Discover a new form of energetic massage
Expand your ability to contain and direct your energy
Clear away blocks and rebalance chakras

This powerful technique activates the energy centers and awakens the Kundalini. I created this practice with my friend Gaia at the request of Margot Anand for her advanced Love and Ecstasy Training. The Kundalini Massage is an energetic massage done with a partner. It can be done clothed or unclothed. We will begin with a warm up of dance and opening the inner flute as a group. I will then demonstrate the Kundalini Massage process. After the demo you will work in dyads as you are guided through the process. After a short integration time you will switch roles and I will guide you through the process again so that both people in the dyad will both give and receive.

Tantra Workshop Introduces the Path to Bliss

This weekend I taught Awakening the Ecstatic Body: Opening the Path to Bliss, in Phoenix. This workshop is a gentle introduction to the path of SkyDancing Tantra®. SkyDancing Tantra® presents the Tantric paradigm via methods and tools accessible to the Western culture and lifestyle. The path of SkyDancing Tantra came to Margot Anand as a revelation rather than a tradition and first introduced in her best selling book, The Art of Sexual Ecstasy. Over the past twenty years it has been taught to tens of thousands of people all over the world.

Here is one participant’s description of her experience of the workshop this past weekend:

I just attended the first, of a series of three, SkyDancing Tantra weekend workshops being facilitated by Crystal Dawn in Phoenix, AZ, titled “Awakening the Ecstatic Body,” August 29-30 (Subtitled, “Opening the Path to Bliss”). I had previously experienced Crystal Dawn’s facilitation for several 3 hour introductions–each a little different. Crystal Dawn is an excellent facilitator who creates a container of safety and appreciation for each participant.

During the weekend, I was guided in a series of well-choreographed exercises with other participants during which we awakened our inner lovers and expanded our ability to tap into joy –within ourselves — and how to share that with a partner more effectively. One tradition of SkyDancing Tantra of great value is the ceremony of creating a “Bubble” in which to share with a partner.

The bubble is opened with a respectful Heart Salutation: (Namaste’). Each person is co-creating the “bubble,” removing unwanted elements and bringing in desired elements, each can truly “own it” and participate with greater awareness and safely within it’s “defined space.” Within the bubble, each states intent/desires, fears, and boundaries prior to further communication and “work/play.” The “bubble” is closed with a respectful Heart Salutation: (Namaste’) and life goes on……

This is exactly what I needed. After the workshop closed on Sunday, I visited my friend and shared “how to” create the “bubble.” We created a “bubble” for our sharing. I felt this simple introduction greatly enhanced our time together and enabled us to enjoy our time within our intent and respectful boundaries more effectively. This one tool was worth the time and expense of the workshop for me– and there was much more!

I look forward to Level 2 next month.
S.C. Phoenix, AZ

The next workshop is September 26-27, 2009 in Phoenix, AZ. It is called Awakening the Ecstatic Body: The Full Body Orgasm and Beyond. During the weekend you will experience the “Ecstatic Response” which allows you to bring orgasmic energy into your entire physical and energetic body. We will also explore “Multi-Orgasmic Response” in both men and women. There is also a very special ritual on Saturday night, called the Sensory Awakening Ritual.

Tantra Tip of the Day- Love, Sex, & Enlightment

This article is reprinted from Margot Anand’s Website. https://www.margotanand.com/margot_articles_love-sex-enlightenment.html

Love, Sex, & Enlightment

Many people mistakenly believe that Tantra is a spiritual bastardization of sexual therapy, an excuse to indulge in sexual games or orgies, an addiction to hours of sexual orgasms. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The Tantric path teaches us to embrace and unify the ordinary, the erotic, and the sacred dimensions of life, all of which have their roots in Spirit.

The beauty and wisdom of Tantra is that it enhances sexuality as a doorway to the “ecstatic mind of great bliss”. Truly, at the peak of orgasm, we pierce through the illusion of fragmentation and separation, and glimpse the unity and interconnectedness of all beings. And through the other–our partner–we fall in love with life.

Because sex holds this great potential for opening our being to the experience of ecstasy, Tantra has for millennia taught the cultivation of sexual love as an art, as a skillful spiritual practice. Then, as now, Tantra challenges the belief promoted by most spiritual and religious paths that we must suppress or transcend out sexuality to practice meditation or awaken our Spirit.

Tantra arose in rebellion against the repressive orthodoxy of the Hindu priesthood, the Brahmins – especially against the idea that one had to be celibate to gain enlightenment. Tantra acknowledges that sex is at the root of life and that to make human sexuality and erotic union a form or worship and meditation is to practice reverence for life, leading us directly through the pleasure of the sense to spiritual liberation.

Cultivate Ecstasy
As a therapist, I knew that the process of healing emotional wounds by focusing on the past to find their source was limited. Although it can bring about healing, it all too often promotes a fascination with the problematic. Furthermore, when we focus obsessively on our problems and pains, the ecstatic potential in most of life’s moments goes unrecognized and unacknowledged, and our lives are emptied of a sacred and joyous dimension. Life appears problematic rather than ecstatic, more a puzzle to be solved than a pleasure to be cultivated.

I realized that existential or psychological pain was actually the absence of ecstasy. It was the outcome of being cut off from the source of one’s being, the source of life. On the other hand, cultivating ecstatic states of consciousness and learning how to integrate them into our lives can have profoundly healing effects. I have come to believe that our suffering has its roots in the loss of ecstasy and that reclaiming our natural ecstasy holds the key to our healing and our liberation.

SkyDancing
Over the years, all that I had discovered coalesced within me into a new shape and meaning. I called the body of knowledge and the ritual practices I had developed over many years “SkyDancing Tantra: The Path to Bliss”. This path came to me as a revelation rather than a tradition. Yet the path of the SkyDancer is indeed one that goes back to eighth-century Tibet, when Yeshe Sogyel, the consort of Buddha Padma Sambhava, was called the “SkyDancer”. Together they developed Tantric Buddhism.

Originally, the SkyDancers were wild, free ecstatic “dakinis”, also called feminine buddhas or female awakeners. The word dakini means “woman who dances in space” or “woman who revels in the freedom of emptiness”. SkyDancers were, and are, women of passion who were profoundly devoted to spiritual awakening. The path of the SkyDancer is a path of spiritual partnership that teaches the complete reciprocity of male and female practitioners as they learn the art of integrating ecstatic states and ecstatic practices in their daily life. It reintroduces in our world the understanding that to heal the world, we need to rediscover and respect the fact that women can be and are awakeners and initiators and enlightened teachers.

SkyDancing Tantra is a unique path that weaves together traditional Tantric, Hindu, Buddhist and Taoist teaching with my studies in humanistic and transpersonal psychology, bodywork therapies, sexology, yoga, music, and metaphysics.

All of this works with human energy systems through the use of light, music, movement, visualization, and particularly (and primarily) the energy map of the chakras. The tantric
chakra system offers a perfect map for the transformation of energy and consciousness, from raw lust to love, a visionary power, and finally to awakening.

SkyDancing Tantra teaches us that when we learn to approach life with a relaxed body, an open heart, and a peaceful mind, we can access ecstatic states and learn to weave them into the daily fabric of our lives.

Sacredness of Sex
It is crucial to understand the sacred dimensions of sex. Sex lies at the root of life, and we can only learn reverence for life when we learn reverence for sex. People in this culture need training in the art of love. They need to understand that sexuality is a very natural instinct, and there is nothing wrong with it. The damage to human society caused by the condemnation of sex is incalculable. Instead of celebrating sex as the creative force it is, we have turned sex into a furtive, guilt-ridden affair. This has misguided and influenced our entire world view. There is a tremendous effort being made to heal the planet, save the rain forests and to bring peace to warring ethnic and religious factions and yet how can any of this happen when the very source of human love is poisoned?

There is a powerfully creative force associated with our sexuality. It is possible for each of us to become a magician and use that force to heal our life and transform our vision–to realize our dreams. We have all sorts of programming blocking the flow of our sexual power. We need to be open to be able to face those demons, to look at the shadow with all honesty, knowing that truth is erotic. The more you can share your truth, the deeper and the more erotic it will become in the long run.

Tantra Tip of the Day – Feel into Surrender

Surrender

Let go, flow, slow, don’t know,
Relax, no resistance,
Tension melts,
Mind empty,
No thoughts,

Floating on a calm sea,
Buoyant, light, supported effortlessly.
Blue sky in all directions,
I am free; all is as it needs to be.

Peace at last,
No more fear,
No need to control,
Surrender all to the Infinite,
Trust totally.

By Crystal Dawn Morris March 27, 2009

Try this: Spend some time today exploring what surrender is to you. How does it feel? What beliefs do you have about it? Experience a moment of surrender and see what you discover about yourself.

Tantra Tip of the Day – Sexual Energy, Fuel for Awakening

Original Art by Paul Heussenstamm, www.Mandalas.com

Tantra is unique from most spiritual practices is that it embraces sex as a path to the Divine. It sees the human body as a Temple. The body experiences birth, death, hunger, thirst, pain and pleasure. It is a laboratory for consciousness to play and explore the material world. Tantra uses the body’s sexual energy to expand awareness.

Tantric practices teach you how to move your sexual energy from the root, up to the heart center and then up to the crown, expanding conscious awareness as it moves into the upper chakras. Sexual energy is the rocket fuel that takes you beyond Earth’s gravitational field and into mystical realms. It accelerates the process of discovering that you are not our thoughts, bodies, feelings or beliefs. You are the Divine celebrating in human form, enjoying its ability to experience pleasure, bliss and Unity Consciousness.

In SkyDancing Tantra we use the 3 keys to open the “Inner Flute” and energize the Chakras. They are: breath, movement and sound. Try this:
1) Stand with your knees hip width apart and slightly bent.
2) Breathe through your mouth and into the belly, allowing it to expand.
3) Increase the energy by breathing in as if you are sipping through straw.
4) Allow your pelvis to rotate freely, keeping the knees bent. As you inhale rock the hips back, creating an arch in the back. As you exhale, tuck the tail bone under, flattening the back.
5) Add the PC pump. As you inhale squeeze the pelvic floor muscles pulling them upwards and as you exhale let them relax.
6) Put all the steps together. As you inhale imagine you are breathing the energy up from your root to your heart. Practice this until you feel the energy pulsing from your root to your heart. You can play with speeding up and slowing down your respiratory rate.
7) Once you have mastered connecting root and heart move the energy to the crown. Practice until you can feel the energy flowing from your root to your crown. See yourself as a rainbow bridge of light connecting Earth and Sky.
8) Do this practice prior to making love and incorporate it into your love making.

The Tantra Tip of the Day- Inner Man and Inner Woman

Understanding masculine and feminine energy is primary to creating healthy relationship of all kinds. If the world is going to heal and come into balance this knowledge is primary. Bringing your inner man and inner woman into conscious awareness is the first step.

Try this: lay down in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed for the next hour. Call forth your inner women and notice how she looks. What is her age, build, coloring, clothing, style of speech etc…? What gifts does she have to offer? How has she been active in your life up to now? Spend sometime getting to know her. Thank her for showing up. Then take a short break. Make some notes if you like. Then repeat the process and call forth your inner man. Go through the same process. Take a break.

Finally, you can call them both forth at the same time and introduce them to each other if they are not familiar with each other already. Notice how they relate to each other? Are they compatible? Do they like each other? Are they willing to work together? How can they help you have more balance in your life?

You can repeat this process many times. It is possible that they will change forms as you learn and grow from this process. To learn more about this process read The Art of Sexual Ecstasy by Margot Anand page 247-252.

Discover the Path to Bliss- SkyDancing in Phoenix, 1/17/09

Magic happened! We gathered and spent the day exploring SkyDancing Tantra. Hearts opened, loved flowed and truth was expressed. Essence was shared and experienced by all. Thanks for showing up and being so authentic.

What a delightful day exploring the path to bliss. Ten people gathered in Phoenix and explored seeing the Divine in each other and in each moment. They learned how the create a bubble and share their desires, fears and boundaries. They visited their “Sacred Garden” and met their “Inner Lover.”

Energy flowed as we used the 3 Keys to open the “Inner Flute” and expand the awareness of our true nature. Joy was had by all as we let go of past and future and discovered the bliss that is in every, Now moment.

We ended the day with the Heart Wave Meditation. This meditation which is done in a dyad and is based on an ancient Tibeatan Buddhist practice, allows you to move beyond, personality, thought and ego and melt into emptiness.

Wow! It was my birthday and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it than this.

Student Comments:

“This was the most energetic and transformational experiences I have ever had. To be able to open up and be honest with another person , and be honest with myself, without fear of my vulnerability. I feel I have taken a huge step on my path to discovering myself and the person I truly am . The sharing of the energy in the room was both inspiring and calming, joyous and safe, loving and nurturing. I look forward to more shared experiences with Crystal Dawn and the other people I met here. Namaste “

The Full-Body Orgasm Class Dec.6th in Phoenix

Saturday I taught a one-day class in Phoenix on how to awaken the full-body orgasm. We had a great day. Everyone experienced ecstatic energy and learned how to open their inner flute and expand into bliss. This class is based on Margot Anand’s SkyDancing Tantra. I developed this one-day class for both new and experience people to have an opportunity to embody their orgasmic energy outside a sexual context. Every time I teach this class I am amazed at how powerful these tools are and how quickly people can open and take it to the next level. I was delighted to have a member of the Deida Connection attend this event.Bliss is always available us. However,  most of the time we are to busy to notice what is all around and through us. I feel very lucky to be teaching this work.
