A: Tantric sex offers options to enrich, expand and extend lovemaking in all its forms. There are practices for learning how to expand the sensations during sexual interactions to include the entire body, rather than being focused on the genitals only. One of the main ideas of tantric sex is to channel the energy through the chakras, and irrigating the entire subtle energy system of our body so that we may, as Margot Anand so eloquently puts it, “transform lust into bliss”.
Free-form ecstatic dance is one of my favorite tantric practices, and an expression of my divine energy. Letting go into the rhythm and melody of the music, allowing my body to sway and tremble, to shake and let loose, to stomp and stand still – that is truly orgasmic to me! I may connect with another person unconditionally in that space, melt with them, or I may be enraptured alone, celebrating and loving myself. After every ecstatic dance experience, I feel relieved, de-stressed, relaxed and overall healed and wholesome. There is new clarity, more spaciousness inside my mind, and my heart is open wide to relate to my beloved and the world around me.
We are delighted to announce that all the details for the upcoming SkyDancing Tantra Coach & Teacher Training are now available. This training is a unique opportunity to learn how to share with others the teachings of SkyDancing Tantra. Become skillful at facilitating personal transformation and ecstatic awakening in the growing area of relationships, sexuality, and spirituality.
Someone told me recently that in her opinion, SkyDancing Tantra is a “brand” and that general business principles apply to it. This certainly does not match up with my experience! I have owned and run various businesses my entire adult life, including one related to computers and accounting applications. If I have learned anything from operating the Institute for Ecstatic Living, a Tantra workshop “business”, for the past 13 years it is this – Tantra (or SkyDancing Tantra) is neither a “business” nor a “brand” in the traditional sense.
One day at 14 years old, I looked into the bathroom mirror and was surprised to see the face looking back at me. Is that me? Who am I, really? Whose is this face looking back at me? My spiritual journey began in that moment. I realized then that I am not the body, and I am not the mind but that there is a third presence that is bigger than all that and omnipresent. I tell you, it was scary back then! About a year later I discovered that Osho calls this state of being, “the watcher on the hill”, or the witness consciousness. This set me on the path of Tantra.
We’re excited to announce the first USA SkyDancing Tantra Professional Training since 2006! Beginning in March 2013, it will consist of four 7-day cycles and a graduation weekend, ending in early May 2014.
Recently I had a conversation with a vibrant couple in their early 60ties. Chris and Alice have been married for 42 years, and together for 45. Their harmony and connection was tangible, and I invited them to share with me the secret to their obviously very joyous and long-term relationship.
