France-born philosopher, author, and spoken word artist Margot Anand has played a major role in the growing popularity of the ancient practices of tantric sexuality. Her books, The Art of Sexual Ecstasy, The Art of Sexual Magic, and The Art of Everyday Ecstasy, have sold in excess of a half million copies. Her albums, Music for Passion, Spirit and Joy, recorded with Gabrielle Roth, Chris Spheeris, and James Asher, and Sky Dancing Tantric: A Call to Bliss, have explored her philosophy via music-accompanied spoken word recitations. A graduate of the Sarbonne Conservatory in Paris, Anand was deeply influenced by the late Bhagwan Rajneesh and served as his disciple for many years. Trained in Tibetan Buddhism, Taoism, and Hindu tantric traditions, Anand has incorporated humanistic and transpersonal psychology, gestalt therapy, and biogenetics into her unique vision. Teaching since 1970, Anand operates Sky Dancing Tantric Institutes in eight countries and has certified more than 100 people to teach her Love and Ecstasy Training programs.
