SkyDancing Tantra®
The Path to Bliss

In 2003, Michael became a Certified SkyDancing Tantra® Teacher, empowered by Margot Anand to teach her proven methods and techniques for healing and transformation. While his workshops and teachings weave together decades of study and exploration of numerous methods and practices, SkyDancing Tantra remains a core foundation and path upon which he practices and lives his life.

What is SkyDancing Tantra?
Margot Anand is the internationally acclaimed authority on and teacher of SkyDancing Tantra, best-selling author of many books, and much-beloved and world-renowned workshop leader. The vast body of knowledge and practices developed by Margot Anand is called "SkyDancing Tantra: The Path to Bliss." Margot, along with her certified SkyDancing teachers, have taught SkyDancing Tantra to tens of thousands of people worldwide, through nine international SkyDancing Institutes.

The path of SkyDancing Tantra came to Margot as a revelation rather than a tradition. Yet the path of the SkyDancer goes back to ancient 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 path of spiritual partnership between men and women as equal spiritual partners integrating 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 – which opens 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 becomes relaxed, the heart opens and the mind becomes clear and 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 years, Margot Anand's SkyDancing Tantra has been the most researched method 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 three-week Love & Ecstasy Training. 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.
