What does “SkyDancing” mean?
The vast body of knowledge and practices developed by Margot Anand and delineated in her best-selling books, is known as SkyDancing Tantra: The Path to Bliss. Margot, along with her certified SkyDancing Tantra teachers, have taught SkyDancing Tantra to over 50,000 people worldwide, through several international SkyDancing Institutes since the late 1980′s.
The path of SkyDancing Tantra came to Margot as a revelation rather than a tradition. Yet the path of the SkyDancer goes back to 8th century Tibet, when Yeshe Tsogyal, the enlightened consort of Buddha Padmasambhava, was called the “Great Skydancer.” Together they developed Tantric Buddhism.
“Skydancers” in the Buddhist tradition were people of great passion who were profoundly devoted to spiritual awakening.
The path of the SkyDancer is a spiritual path where men, women and all genders see each other as equal partners on a quest to integrate ecstatic states into their daily lives.
Weaving Ancient Secrets & Modern Techniques
SkyDancing Tantra presents the Tantric paradigm via methods and tools accessible to the Western culture and lifestyle. These methods are inspired by ancient traditions of holistic spirituality and sexuality : Tantric, Yogic, Buddhist, Taoist, Sufi, and Native American, among others. SkyDancing Tantra also blends modern techniques, such as psychology, bioenergetics, neurolinguistic programming (NLP), visualization, and effective communication skills with meditation, sacred ritual, sexual magic, massage, and other practices.
The Path to Bliss
SkyDancing Tantra teaches you to choose with awareness what brings you pleasure and joy, thus opening the door to a deeper connection with spirit and a greater sense of aliveness and well-being. The practice of SkyDancing Tantra enables you to overcome feelings of separation and create a sense of union with yourself, others, and the world. The body relaxes, the heart opens and the mind becomes clearer and more focused. When this integration takes place, you are ready for a new sexual and spiritual experience in which physical/sensual pleasure becomes a celebration of the heart and an ecstasy of the spirit. When practiced with a partner, SkyDancing Tantra contributes to healthy, loving relationships. Ultimately, the SkyDancing path provides a model for cultivating the Tantric way of life – helping you awaken to your ecstatic potential, embrace your own vital powers, enliven sensuality, awaken spirituality, and create a more fulfilling love life.
A Proven Method
Over the past 30 years, Margot Anand’s SkyDancing Tantra has been among the most researched methods developed in modern Tantra. A scientific study at the University of Hanover in Germany was conducted over a year and a half, following participants of Margot’s initial three-weeks Love and Ecstasy Training (LET). The results based on thorough statistical analysis of some 800 medical, psychiatric, and psychological questionnaires, described the benefits of the training as: increased orgasmic response, improved health, increased creativity and concentration, and improved partner communication.
The philosophy of SkyDancing Tantra provides a gateway into the Tantric way of life by helping you to awaken to your ecstatic potential, embrace your own vital powers, create a more fulfilling love life and enliven your sensuality as well as your spirituality.
Tantra, once the cherished practice of Asian nobility, has often been called “The Yoga of Love”. Like other forms of yoga, the practice of Tantra offers peace of mind while it both relaxes and energizes the body. Tantra enables one to overcome feelings of separation and create a sense of union. When this integration has taken place, you are ready for a new sexual experience in which physical pleasure becomes a delight of the heart and an ecstasy of the spirit. When practiced with a partner, Tantra contributes to healthy, loving relationships.
SkyDancing is the ancient metaphor for the ability to achieve ecstatic states. SkyDancing Tantra is the ability to integrate these ecstatic states into your sexuality and into your life, so that love can be experienced as a flow, a joyful celebration, a healing meditation. SkyDancing Tantra presents the Tantric paradigm through methods accessible to the Western culture and lifestyle. Margot Anand has integrated the ancient spirit of Tantra with the most recent discoveries in clinical sexology, as well as the therapeutic methods of humanistic and transpersonal psychology. Her teachings are powerful, healing and effective.
