Tantric Awakening discloses an epic experience of tantra that few have achieved, and even fewer would dare to attempt. This is the story of a 19-year-old girl, disillusioned by the questions that her religion and society fail to answer, who courageously enters the sensuous rituals of tantric sex. In search of authentic knowledge, Brooks was admitted into secret societies where she learned firsthand the ways of the tradition from tantric adepts. Amid disapproval from family and friends, her body and spirit awaken to ecstatic levels of orgasmic pleasure that allow her to experience loving relationships, better health, and a deep sense of oneness with God.
A personal and intimate portrait, Tantric Awakening is tastefully written to reveal not only the ecstatic power and spiritual benefits of tantra, but also the pitfalls, problems, and temptations of this path toward enlightenment. With the inclusion of specific tantric sexual techniques the author shows how to use tantra to balance the spirit with the physical self in order to achieve personal empowerment, transforming fear and self-doubt into joy and self-confidence. Meditations, exercises, and important insights for beginning a tantric practice assist the reader who is inspired to bring a sense of the divine into daily life.
"This courageous, intimate portrait reveals the ecstatic power and spiritual benefits of tantra, as well as its pitfalls, problems, and many temptations."

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.
