Enlightening viewpoint of an ancient practice
When one thinks about Tantra the first thing that comes to mind is 'sex' but this author does her best to bring the greater achievement of Tantric practice to light, which is spirituality. Brooks tells her true life story, holding nothing back, of her decision to pursue her spiritual path through Tantra and her struggles to enlightenment delving into the details of the practice along the way. Brooks speaks of her challenges and accomplishments over an eight year journey leaving you feeling that Tantra, like many other spiritual paths, takes time and effort to pursue. Her descriptions of the mental struggles overcome and the knowledge gained compells the reader to want to follow their own journey to self awakening. At the end of the book my realization was not that I needed to devote myself to Tantric practice to find my enlightenment, but instead that discovering a spiritual path that speaks to me, as an individual, would produce similar effects (i.e. religion, meditation, yoga, tantra, etc...). Only catering to your individual needs will lead to your true enlightenment.
