healing Love through the Tao March 7 2011
By earthsong - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A spiritual view and method of sexual practice. As a woman who was raped in the past, I wanted to be able to look at sex from a different perspective other than someone's lust. This book doesn't deal with the subject of rape (one should visit a councilor for that), but rather reveals practices and methods for healing and rejuvenating the body through work with herself and also a loving sexual partner. A celibate woman may also benefit from these exercises. Breathing exercise and explicit diagrams are also used. This is esoteric knowledge which for centuries was secret in China. It's a wealth of fabulous knowledge and very helpful. There is a companion book for men as well. Oh, to find a partner trained in this method!

Great results take time and work. April 2 2012
By F. Osborne - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been working with this book for a little under a month, and am very happy with the progress I've been making. I totally understand other reviewers' concerns that a subject and method this complex should be taught in person; however, as a person who has been working gently with meditation, yoga, kundalini energy and related methods for roughly ten years, I feel that this book is an appropriate self-teaching tool for myself and others like me.

Moving energy through the body often isn't an easy thing, even for someone experienced with energy/body work. It's something that should be described in detail, as this book does without becoming pedantic. I particularly am appreciative of the recommendation that the reader master one section before moving to the next. I'm still working on the Microcosmic Orbit (Chapter 4), and have not yet progressed to Ovarian Breathing. I would like to go faster, and am at times frustrated, but failure with other methods has shown me that a time-tested and contemplative method such as this one is just the right way for me to go.

This method is working for me, and has worked for countless people since it was first written in 1986. Not only am I experiencing an improvement in the intimate areas of my life, I also am having a much easier time sending energy to a particular spot in my body and sensing energy in others. This is very important to me, as I am currently working toward Reiki II training.

The most wonderful thing of all: this book aims to empower people to enrich the private, sensual moments in their lives, but the benefits of what this author illustrates extend far beyond intimate encounters and into the realm of everyday life. This is wholly expansive and utilitarian material, for the serious seeker of a higher energy and a higher life potential.

Groundbreaking and effective June 16 2014
By Kilidonia de Acero - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book goes far beyond any other book I have ever read about female sexuality, and believe me I've read plenty of them over the years. It encourages you to go beyond thinking about sex per se and to use your sexual life force to begin functioning sexually on a much higher level, beyond anything you might even have considered possible.

These procedures are designed to give you complete mastery over your body's physical responses. Some can be difficult in the
beginning but practice makes them easier. For example, he shows you step-by-step how to channel sexual energy so that instead of
having a physical climax, you can spiral that very energy throughout your body, one location at a time. This has the effect of revitalizing all your organs, glands, and nerves in each location as the energy passes through it. Those familiar with the macrocosmic orbit will recognize the procedure. Once you develop this ability, you will be able to experience greater and more fulfilling physical climaxes that are not localized but involve your entire body. Ultimately it's designed to enable you and your partner to experience a complete physical and spiritual union as well as a union with God or the universe or the higher power or whatever you want to call it..

Since it can be difficult to do the steps he describes while holding the book in your hand and reading the instructions, I recommend taping yourself reading the instructions out loud at an un-hurried pace and then using the tape instead of the book to guide you through the exercises.

This is a challenging book but completely rewarding if you actually start putting the steps into practice. I had some resistance in the beginning to going and trying some of them. It was much easier to just keep reading. But when I pushed through and followed his instructions for a few things, I was really impressed and inspired by the way they made me feel. The first time I sat down and actually did the entire ovarian breathing process - and believe me, I did NOT do it perfectly - I felt an awakening in my body that was profound and inspiring.. I've been practicing raja, hatha, and swara yoga for a while, so I guess I was ready, but I feel that this book can benefit anyone with even the slightest inclination to try some of the methods he provides, and just a little bit of practice will go a long way.

This book isn't for everyone. It's not a bunch of intellectual exercises, but it does involve your mind as well as your body and your
spirit. It provides very practical physical steps that you can do by yourself, and later with your partner. If you think you're going
to simply read it and have it change your life, you could be disappointed. To get the most out of this book you will have to apply
yourself. But even if you simply read it, it can open your mind to what is possible. The rewards will probably be on a scale with
how much effort you put into it.

The male counterpart to this book is called Taoist Secrets of Love: Cultivating Male Sexual Energy.

You need a teacher to help understand the exercises Jan. 25 2014
By Sage Dakota - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am so grateful for the author for bringing this information to the West. It is really valuable. I had the book for years and didn't pay much attention to it because I resisted building more sexual energy, as I am single. A misunderstanding that wasted valuable time. In reality, the energy is there anyhow, and the "cultivation" of it is not just about increasing one's effective usage of sexual energy for use in a sexual relationship, but is also about effectively channeling it and re-purposing it for general life force energy to heal and energize the body. The challenges with this book are mostly that there are so many details in the instructions and they actually aren't always clear, despite being very lengthy with many many steps to them. Sometimes the information seems to contradict itself. For example, when he explains ovarian breathing, he talks about having to hold the energy in the perineum or it will leak out of the vagina. He also explains that one must tighten the vaginal muscles. On the next page he says "once you have collected enough energy, repeat the process of bringing energy to the perineum... close your vagina." Isn't it supposed to be held closed or the energy will leak out? So why do we need to close it again? The diagrams are extremely detailed but with so many body parts in one small drawing and all of the crossing lines pointing to the body parts, it is challenging to see what they are referring to. The author also mistakenly call the anus the perineum in a few places in the book. While the muscles of these are attached at several points, they are not the same thing! I highly recommend finding a teacher to help you with this. I don't know too many people who teach this stuff, though. I know one teacher in the Los Angeles area who might teach it, as she is having a class that will address some of this stuff but I'm not sure in how much detail. I would imagine it could be expensive to study this one-one-one with someone. It isn't exactly the kind of thing I would want to study in detail in a mixed gender group, as it is very personal. P.S. The author does have some videos on YouTube that help explain the instructions more clearly. Good luck!

Serious Taoistic tantra exercises Jan. 11 2007
By Marianne - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In depth refined awareness exercises for women who are serious about getting a deeper sense of the sexual/life stream and its 'home' in the genitals.

Not light reading. You have to practice the exercises for this book to make any real sense.

A must buy if you are into that kind of work and pretty uninteresting if you aren't!
