When is a Book on Tantra Not a Book on Tantra?

Surprisingly, most books on Tantra available to Westerners today have very little to do with Tantra and have resulted in massive misunderstandings of the subject. They are usually nothing more than sex guides or relationship manuals. Now, Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson, experts in Tantra and are holders of a traditional Indian lineage passed to them by Dr. Jonn Mumford, reveal the true history, philosophy, and practical techniques of this ancient spiritual path in Tantra for Erotic Empowerment, the thinking person's guide to Tantra and sexual self-discovery.

This book is literally a course that will train you to become a Tantric in mind, body, and spirit. It's like having a private Tantric guru to instruct you in the underlying concepts and guide you through the practices.

All fourteen chapters follow a specific pattern and are filled with exercises and practices to help you incorporate the Tantric ideas into your life. They begin with a brief quotation from a classic text that sets the mood for the chapter, and then you get a specific meditation to perform. This is followed by the major part of the chapter, which features information and practices that will help you become grounded in Tantric technique and understand more about real Tantra than many of the people who claim to be Tantrics! Although there is a lot of information, Tantra is traditionally experiential, so the many included exercises are designed to help you internalize the information. Finally, you'll get a special message from the authors and several questions you can answer to make sure you understand the material.

Tantra is Not Sacred Sexuality
What? This sounds like heresy. But the authors clearly point out that Tantra is far, far more than sacred sexuality. Sacred sexual practices are often included (among an array of other ways) to use the body as a tool for spiritual development, but Tantra is not limited to just sexual exercises.

If Tantra isn't merely sacred sexuality, what is it? That's exactly what you'll learn in Tantra for Erotic Empowerment. You'll discover that Tantra is an ancient tradition that recognizes sexual energy as a source of personal and spiritual empowerment. It is a spiritual science that can transform your mental, physical, and spiritual being, a technology that will lead you to know yourself deeply. You can adopt any or all of it, and it's ideal for adults who are single, in a relationship, in polyamorous relationships, straight or gay. In short, if you are a breathing adult, you can use Tantra for personal empowerment.

As part of this, you will be practicing numerous exercises:

• Discover the intensity and depth of pleasure
• Learn to break free of unwanted and even unnoticed habits
• Practice eye gazing to enhance your ability to be fully present and aware
• Develop and use the PC muscles for amazing sexual power
• Be amazed at the results of traditional Tantric meditation practice
• Uncover the shocking results of breath control during sex
• Learn to perform a Tantric puja and venerate the lingam and yoni
• Find true bliss, happiness, and expand your pleasure
• Learn the true power of the imagination and magic
• Discover Tantric sexual rituals

Tantra for Erotic Empowerment is not a book about sex. It's a book that reveals ancient secrets, including sexual ones, of personal spiritual development that you can use. Unlike many spiritual traditions that say the body and physical world are unimportant, Tantra holds that sexuality and the physical world can help you on your spiritual path. The body and the world are sacred, and it is almost contrary to nature not to use them in sacred ways, just as they were intended. This book is your personal instruction manual that uses sexual self-discovery to take self-actualization to a new dimension. It is truly a guidebook to personal empowerment, and you can use it to advance your life now. This may well be the most important book on Tantra of the decade.

We all strive for more health, happiness, and hope in our lives. This enhanced well-being can be as simple as integrating any number of aroma-energetic practices into your life; these practices combine the powerful effects of aromatherapy and energy for a more powerful result.
