Tantric Sex – Reignite Your Relationship with the Pleasure Game

At the beginning of a relationship sex is often spontaneous, intense and erotic. This phenomenon is called the Honeymoon phase. It is when the “New Relationship Energy” or NRE, makes everything exciting. Over time the NRE naturally fades. Romance dwindles, passion wanes and sex often becomes routine. The Pleasure Game is one way to rekindle the passion and romance in your relationship.

1) Make a date. When life gets busy it is easy to forget to schedule time for you and your beloved to have uninterrupted time together. Turn off your cell phones, shut off the TV, and disconnect from the outside world.

2) Create an altar or temple area by decorating the space where you are going to play so it feels as if you are somewhere special. Use fabrics, candles, flowers or whatever feels right to make the space feel inviting and exotic. I know a guy who surprised his wife by turning his garage into a Temple and making his Harley-Davidson into an altar where he invited her to be pleasured.

3) Take a ritual bath, using it as a transition into sacred time. Allow the bath or shower to wash away the cares of the day. Make a commitment to avoid digressing into mundane concerns about the house, kids or work. Dress in clothes that make you feel special, like a God or Goddess.

4) Sit facing each other; create a bubble around both of you. Use your arms to define the shape of the bubble, imagine it surrounds both of you. This bubble allows you to let go of the outside world and create a safe and sacred space to play the “Pleasure Game.” Remove things from your bubble that might interfere with you enjoying the game. Do this by stating out loud what you are removing from the bubble and at the same time make a gesture as you remove it. Examples may include: the past, distractions, anger, work, etc. Then, bring things into your bubble that will enhance the experience and make a gesture as you bring them into the bubble. Examples might include: love, sensuality, presence, trust, etc. Once the bubble is created, share your desires, fears and boundaries related to this game. (Boundaries are what you need to feel safe and stay open.) One person speaks while the other listens without judgment or commentary, then you switch roles.

5) Before beginning the game take a few minutes to look into each other’s eyes and breathe together. Allow your hearts to connect and begin to feel the energy flowing between you. Imagine that as you explore pleasure together you are doing it not only for yourselves but for all the men and women in the world.

6) Play the Pleasure Game. Decide how much time you have to play the game and divide the time in half. Pick who will give and who will receive first. The receiver then tells the giver how they want to be pleasured for their allotted amount of time. Then the roles are reversed.

Some requests might include: hair brushing, a pedicure or a massage, acting out a fantasy, performing a favorite sexual act, trying a new sexual position, mutual self-pleasuring, erotic storytelling, getting naked and doing some “Dirty Dancing,” making love in a car or some other unusual place. Be creative, ask for what you want. Take this opportunity to be daring and move beyond your comfort zone while honoring your partner’s boundaries. Don’t insist that they do something they aren’t ready or willing to do. When this ritual is done with a playful and open heart it can be a great way to revitalize and enhance your relationship.

Tantra recognizes that everything is alive and connected. It embraces all areas of life as a path to awakening, including sexuality. Sex is seen as a doorway to the Divine. By bringing conscious awareness into this practice we can enhance our connection to our beloved and help make the world a better place to live. The Pleasure Game is one way to reignite the passion in your relationship. Taking time to connect in a special way with your beloved goes a long way toward creating a happy, healthy relationship.

Tantra Tip of the Day – Osho’s Tantra Vision

Osho was a 20th century Tantric master, sometimes called the spiritually incorrect mystic. In his book called The Tantra Vision, he shares these teachings about Tantra:

1) Tantra embraces everything as one.
2) Tantra accepts everything as an opportunity.
3) Tantra honors both masculine and feminine polarities.
4) Men and women have both masculine and feminine within them.
5) Tantra understands opposites are complimentary, not contradictory.
6) The union of masculine and feminine energies are a doorway to the Sacred.
7) Sexual union is a healing art that can awaken humans to their Divine Nature.

Do you honor sexuality as a sacred healing art? Spend time with your beloved creating a sacred sexual healing ritual. If you are single do a self pleasuring ritual and dedicate it to your own healing or planetary healing. Notice if you have resistance to these ideas and if so, explore what the resistance is. For information on how to do these rituals, see Margot Anand’s The Art of Sexual Ecstasy.

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 “

“As a newcomer to Tantra, Crystal (and assistant Jim,) held an excellent group session that was very informative and had me very focused on the energy present. I certainly would do this again. Thanks Crystal (and Jim.)”
Larry B. – Phoenix, AZ

Our First Tantra Meetup was a Success

Wow, what a wonderful group of open people! If you are looking to connect and create conscious community this group is for you. It felt safe, loving, and authentic. There was a mutual desire to celebrate life as a community.

We had our first meetup last night and it was fabulous. We began with dancing, connecting our breath, body and heart. We created a circle and shared about ourselves and our desires for a Tantra communinity. The consensus was to meet 2 times a month once informally for a potluck or outing and once for a more formal Tantra practice. I will be posting those dates soon. The last hour I lead the group in a pleasurable, heartful puja which ended with the group laying on the floor and listening to a Tibetan Bowl. We closed by offering blessings for those we know in need and offered gratitude for all we have. Thanks to everyone who participated.

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.
