TANTRA SCHOOL - Our first Tantra School was held January 25-February 3,
2002 and was a phenomenal success. I had originally envisioned
participants being here for all ten days, but when that wasn't happening,
I surrendered to what the universe was sending me and stumbled upon a
format that was excellent. It never ceases to amaze me how perfect the
divine plan truly is. We had a core group that was with us for the entire
ten days and others who came and went. Like a group gestalt, we used the
interruptions of the moment to propel us forward and unravel parts of
ourselves. And did we ever have the "interruptions". There is a
saying that "God never gives us more than we can handle", and I
guess if that's true, I can really handle a lot. Three friends died, we
were besieged with reporters, questions, phone calls and funeral
preparations. Both my computers crashed, the roof leaked, the rains
continued forcing me to cancel parts of my classes. The rains washed out
our dam, so we had to use bottled water. My car stopped working. It seemed
as if I would burst, my plate was so full, yet I didn't seem to lose it
until the very last day. Tragedy creates community. We propelled forward,
continuing for them and despite all. I think it brought us all closer and
allowed us to burn our karmic fire faster and brighter. We did a lot of
work on ourselves, for us, our friends, community and the planet.

SKYDANCING TANTRICAS by Janet Kira Lessin I think I've gone past the
deaths of my friends, Jim, Claudia and Anthea, then I drive through the
creek past the three crosses and waves of grief sweep over me. I stare at
the creek bed, now dry, and see the river rage, the jeep overturned. Part
of my soul wanders the banks eternally hoping to my friends washed ashore,
alive and easy to revive. Maybe in an alternative universe this happens. I
return to everyday, wipe eyes, choke back emotion and carry on, just as
Jim, Claudia and Anthea would have wanted me to. How precious is life,
each moment a treasure.
With new-found appreciation, I cherish every moment I get to look into the
face of my beloved husband, Sasha. Perhaps that's the blessing of tragedy,
that we may stop taking one another for granted and enjoy the moment.
There's a richness now in our lovemaking, a knowingness that the dance is
brief. Often in our counseling practice, Sasha and I help departed souls
attached to the living move on and into the light. The departed souls take
the hands of their loved ones who wait for them on the other side, and
ascend with them into the light. Sometimes I channel.
Sasha and I kept "feeling" Claudia. Was she still here? For
several days in a row my electronic toothbrush would leap out of it's
holder and dance around for Sasha. When he'd yell for one of us to come
see, it would stop, so he never could get a witness to the phenomena. We
joked it was Claudia, high energy as usual, trying to communicate to him.
Perhaps she was. After reporters stopped coming, memorials completed and
guests were safely put on planes homeward bound, Sasha, Vinny and I did a
meditation to help our friends transition, just in case that's what they
needed. In the meditation, I allowed the story to unfold.
As I lay on the futon, with Sasha and Vinny holding space, I propelled my
soul down the country dirt road to the gully while simultaneously
journeying back in time to the day my friends died and the river raged. I
was there, in the jeep being tossed in the rapids. I identified with
Claudia, felt her terror the last moment of life, her last breaths, then
breathing water. I screamed as I realized I'd die now. Images and thoughts
of Claudia's life, family, friends, all that she created, enjoyed, loved,
cherished and its impending "loss" flashed before my/her eyes.
I, Janet, screamed and cried as I relived those moments until suddenly,
pop, I was out of body. Peace.
I stood on the shore. I held Jim and Anthea's hands. They'd died seconds
before me. We sighed a sigh of relief. Ah, here again. Home again. It was
familiar. We watched the jeep tip over. We saw our bodies continue
downstream to the ocean, no longer attached to them. Silently, we
witnessed. We stood on the bank and at the same time zoomed overhead and
saw those searching for us. Janet and Sasha were yelling to Harold that we
were lost. A reporter took their photo for the front page of the Maui News
that would appear the next day. A helicopter circled overhead and
my/Claudia's was in the cockpit as the pilot responded to the radio. I was
there with loved ones as one by one the news of our deaths reached them. I
saw them cry, respond. Felt their pain while simultaneously, I was Jim,
Claudia and Anthea and we were elated with joy. Our hearts full of
My consciousness left Claudia, Jim and Anthea and returned to Janet. As
Janet, I held them in my heart. Sasha continued the ritual for them to
transition. "Look up and see who's reaching out a hand for you",
He said. "Take it and go into the light." Later, alone in the
bathroom, a small voice spoke in my head. Claudia, faint yet clear thanked
me for helping her. She said she understood my good intention in bidding
her leave this plane, but she said she is not going to leave.... yet.
She'll stay here on the property to help Charles and me and Sasha and the
tantra movement. Claudia said she can do her work much faster now, and can
help even more than before.
Was it my imagination? Was I making it up? Sure, perhaps I'm crazy. But
then again, who knows? I've had eight near-death experiences and have
always been able to see ghosts. I've had dozens of eyewitnesses and shared
episodes which add up to "proof" to me. I realize that one man's
science "fact" is another man's science "fiction", so
there's not really much I can do to prove things one way or another. We
live on in so many ways after we die. Our genes carry on through our
children, our memories through those who knew us and hopefully, our souls
continue in other dimensions and perhaps even returning in future
I'm at a loss how to end this article because I feel the story has only
just begun. Somehow in the "ascension" of these three incredible
souls, many have moved past the cliche that "they are always with
you" to the actualization that they really are. It has been
prophesied that humanity would someday be able to pierce the veil between
life and death and for me, it feels that Jim, Anthea and Claudia have
indeed done so. It would be so appropriate for them to be the pioneers to
show humanity that we need not be only "here" or
"there" but are indeed multi-dimensional beings consciously
choosing to exist simultaneously in many dimensions. I wish to end by
thanking Jim, Claudia and Anthea and saying that we anxiously await your
next transmission, should you decide to send one and appreciate the love
you generate, wherever you are.
