Love, Sensuality & Awakening
29th May – 1st June 2020. Awakeland, Algarve, Portugal
Love, Sensuality & Awakening – A Masterclass
In this 3 day blitz playshop, Margot, probably the oldest and most experienced teacher of tantra in the west, and founder of Skydancing Tantra, will take you on a ride through sex, love and bliss. Margot is becoming a legend, as a healthy rock and rolling, alive, 77 Dakini, who loves to make you laugh, who confronts our tabus and transforms our fears into a conscious let go … the fears are not ours… they are teachers. Margot will show you how as you take this unique opportunity to be with a masteress.
Margot doesn’t teach much outside of the advanced Skydancing tantra institutes and programs. Life is a celebration, celebration is timeless, and when it is expressing wisdom and sharing wisdom, it is an awakening. We will explore the art of relaxing in high states of arousal to enter into a multi orgasmic response, and many more of Margot’s signature energy work, the goal being that you love yourself from your head to your toe and back, then share that love, until the marriage between shiva and shakti, or consciousness and energy, give us and expanded glimpse of the beyond.
You will learn how to move from sexuality, to love, to awakering like a seed of potential to a mighty flowering tree.
“Don’t count on sex to be the door to intimacy. It’s the other way around: first develop intimacy skills. Then make love to enjoy them. You stand exactly in the middle, poised between heaven and earth, a human conductor for the energy that seeks to flow between these two polarities..”

Margot Anand, the world’s leading authority on Tantra, is an internationally acclaimed author, public speaker, teacher and seminar leader. Her best-selling books—The Art of Sexual Ecstasy, The Art of Sexual Magic, The Art of Everyday Ecstasy, Sexual Ecstasy: The Art of Orgasm and The Sexual Ecstasy Workbook—have sold more than a million copies worldwide. Her teaching style is a rare synthesis of French erotic humor, American pragmatism, and Indian mysticism. She is particularly appreciated for her ability to bring healing, lightness, fun, and passion to the workshop atmosphere.
Her educational documentary, Margot Anand’s Secret Keys to the Ultimate Love Life, is an in-depth course in her renowned methods (offered on three DVDs) and delivers a Tantra refresher and some fun, novel twists to those familiar with her classic and timeless techniques. Her latest teachings are designed to inspire a whole new generation of lovers.
Throughout the past two decades, Margot Anand has developed and taught the Love and Ecstasy Training (LET)®, a method of healing and enhancing sexuality to its ultimate potential: ecstasy. She is also the founder of nine worldwide SkyDancing® Tantra Institutes—a new approach to Tantra, or “Neo-Tantra.” SkyDancing Tantra is probably the most complete path to sexual bliss for western lovers.
Margot Anand’s ability to bring the teachings of Tantra beyond the bedroom and into everyday life is her signature. She is also pioneering a new method, “Yoga of Living,” in which she coaches people in designing ecstatic lifestyles. In addition, she has a new book (soon to be published) called Love, Sex and Awakening: Finding God in Bed, which will enlighten her audience with twelve life adventures that were her initiations into the connection between sexuality and spirituality. www.margotanand.com
Why you can feel safe
SkyDancing Tantra honours the following guidelines and allows it to be a safe and trustworthy space for learning – A good Tantra teacher observes these principles:
- Is mature enough to keep to her, or his, position as teacher, without seeking a more personal and intimate connection with the student.
- Has taken care of her, or his, own sexual, sentimental and relational needs outside of the group arena.
- Does not impose his own ideas about truth on students but is able to ask the right questions so that the students’ ability to find their own answers emerges naturally.
- Does not seek to influence students in a preferred direction which corresponds to the teacher’s financial interests (“come and study in my school, we have the perfect program for you”).
- Considers teaching as a sacred event which allows him or her to act with humility as a vehicle for spirit.
- Is humble enough to recognize that students may at times also prove to be teachers and he/she can learn from them.
- Has enough experience and self-trust to know how to handle any and all situations with integrity, no matter how unusual.
- Walks his talk and practices what he/she preaches.
- Avoids presenting himself, or herself, as ‘the perfect example’ that all must follow.
- Chooses not to impress people with ‘siddhis’ or ‘special powers’.
- Does not feel responsible for the students’ evolution, but only for doing the best he or she can do, honestly and totally.
- Does not bring his, or her, own sexual needs and addictions into the group room.
