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.

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.
