Read an Excerpt
Dr. Jonn Mumford has been writing books on Tantra for almost forty years. In Ecstasy Through Tantra he presents his extensive knowledge in a practical way that you can use to change your life.
This book skillfully interweaves theory and practice so you can understand why you are doing any exercise as you learn the technique. You will start with simple exercises you can practice by yourself. One of the exercises helps women to reach orgasm more easily and allows men to control when they want to reach orgasm. Another exercise helps a woman to become more easily aroused and encourages potency in men.
This is all in preparation for the greatest of secrets: sex can become sacred. Instead of short periods of pleasure and joy, you can have hours of bliss as you bring the Divine into your pleasure.
Full, explicit instructions for all of these techniques are included. The book is filled with beautiful ancient and modern illustrations of loving couples. There are photos of erotic sculptures and even color photos of couples showing the secret sexual positions for ultimate bliss.
This book is meant for individuals and couples looking to expand their sexual lives. It is more than Tantra, for it also is a full course in sexual magick, including the "Mass of the Holy Ghost" by Israel Regardie. There is an entire weekend worth of Tantra written by Donald Michael Kraig, and I have contributed the introduction and a chapter on the importance of love and romance in sacred sexuality.
This is one of the most spiritual, powerful and important books you will every read.
What People are saying about this
Tantra or Tantric Yoga has often been confused in the West as having much to with unrestrained sexuality, and little or nothing to do with spirituality and Divinity. Given this misconception, Tantra is often viewed with moral repugnance or morbid fascination. The Western response to Tantra reflects our own confusion regarding the true nature of sexuality. We have become divorced from the spiritual essence of sexuality - seeing it only in terms of procreation or as a means of physical gratification.
Ecstasy Through Tantra directly confronts these misconceptions, revealing Tantra as a Divine practice that is grounded in the physical experience. In Tantra the purpose of physical existence is to celebrate the Divine, and the experience of sexuality is intrinsic to that celebration. The union of loving partners is symbolic of the loving Union between Shiva and Shakti - the eternal, cosmic Male and Female Engergies. The sexual experience becomes a Divine experience and an act of worship. When Divinity is removed from sexuality, as it has in the West, sex becomes shallow and meaningless.
Drawing on his vast knowledge of Tantra, mysticism, and the occult practices of the West, Dr. Mumford reveals the true spiritual nature of sexuality. Across all cultures and religious practices the sexual union has symbolized Divine Union - it has only been in recent times that sex has become separated from its spiritual essence. The practices of Tantra return sexuality to its proper place within the Cosmic Dance - a joyous celebration of life. The rituals and techniques described by Dr. Mumford provide the means by which lovemaking is transformed into an act of devotion and worship. The sexual union then becomes perhaps the most powerful means of experiencing illumination and Divine Bliss available to us in the physical realm.
Ecstasy Through Tantra provides practical means for returning the transcendent to the sexual, whilst remaining true to the philosophical roots of Tantra. It melds the esoteric nature of the East with the practicality of the West into a path of spirit-based sexuality that is accessible to all. The text is complimented by beautiful illustrations and photographs of erotic sculpture and art. A book for all those who wish to bring Divinity and (w)holiness to their relationships.
