Overview

La obra más completa sobre sexo y misticismo publicada hasta hoy. Más de dos mil años de conocimientos sexuales.

Hasta ahora, los secretos para llegar a nuevas cotas de éxtasis habían permanecido ocultos en los textos y en el arte del Oriente. En este libro se revelan por primera vez esos misterios. Secretos sexuales está basado en textos orientales—incluidos el Kama Sutra, el Ananga Ranga y los principales tratados eróticos taoístas—muchos de los cuales nunca han sido vistos, y much menos traducidos, en Occidente así como en los primeros textos mágicos de los antiguos egipcios, griegos, hebreos y árabes, llegando incluso a los libros de alquimia de la Europa medieval.

La primera parte del libro trata del tema del Creativo y tiene como finalidad abrir posibilidades superiores. Se describen las preparaciones y actitutes mentales. En la segunda parte, que trata el tema del Trascendental, se explora la sexualidad de la pareja y se aborda el significado de la sexualidad y el poder de la trascendencia. La tercera y última parte trata el tema del Conservador, y en ella se considera el camino del amor en todas sus múltiples actividades y se explora el deleite de la consciencia sexual, describiendo las aplicaciones de las técnicas secretas y analizando en detalle todo el repertorio de posiciones para realizar el coito.

Secretos sexuales revela conocimientos que han resistido el paso de los siglos. Y lo hace de una forma vital y practicable, desde las técnicas corporales hasta las formas de utilizar el acto sexual como una terapéutica. Un libro que muestra cómo el amor físico puede conducirnos a la liberación activa de la sexualidad.
