Tantric Sex for Busy Couples provides readers with a dynamically new and pracitcal approach to creating intimacy on all levels sexual, emotional and spiritual. Blending the ancient teachings of Tantra from India, and the peaceful exercise program of T’ai Chi from China, couples discover how to create magic in their relationship. Woven throughout the easy instructions are the personal experiences of the author and her husband. Although the emphasis is on intimacy rather than orgasm, the sexual practices are designed to provide plenty of both.
The basic exercises presented in the book include Solo Stillness,” Connected Pose” and the Tantra TaiChi Trilogy.” Solo Stillness highlights the idea that when we each embrace our inner self, we are more able to be truly present in a relationship. Connected Pose invites the couple to simply be with each other, face-to-face, heart-to-heart, eyes open. This establishes the foundation for intimate connection.
The Tantra TaiChi Trilogy focuses on three primary centers in the body both metaphorically and physicallythe Sex Center (below the waist), the Heart Center (above the waist) and the more elusive Bindi” or spiritual center represented by the third eye and upper chakras.” Each of these centers interacts with and influences the others. Sexual energy is moved throughout the body, rather than being concentrated in the genitals.
The foundational exercises of Tantra TaiChi are preparation for the sexual practices described in the book. These include yin and yang ceremonies of sexual massage for the woman and the man, as well as Peaceful Passion” a sexual union that requires neither a high sex drive nor a Viagra-inspired erection.
Throughout all of the practices, readers are encouraged to maintain a sacred, respectful, loving and ceremonial attitude toward their partners. This attitude alone can transform a relationship into a love affair.

About the Author
Read an Excerpt
From the Introduction:
"When people participate in ceremony, they enter a sacred space.
Everything outside of that space fades in importance,
time takes on a different dimension,
Emotions flow more freely,
And the bodies of participants become filled with the energy of life,
and this energy reaches out and blesses the creation around them.
All is made new
Everything becomes sacred."
~ Sun Bear, Native American Medicine Teacher
Tantra TaiChi is a sacred ceremony, a ritual of movement and presence that can quickly create a sense of intimacy when practiced with one’s lover, mate, beloved partner. You’ll learn in this book that Tantra TaiChi Sex is based on principles of eastern teachings, yet the concepts of awareness and presence transcend cultural boundaries. The words may sound esoteric but the experiences are practical and down-to-earth.
No belief system, no adherence to any spiritual path is needed to benefit from Tantra TaiChi. And most surprisingly, no sexual drive or potency is needed to enjoy Tantra TaiChi Sex.
Tantra TaiChi can transform your relationship into an affair of love, regardless of how long you have been together, how old you are, or whether you are heterosexual, bisexual, gay or lesbian.
This book is a personal story, our way of sharing with you what works for my husband and me in our long-term relationship. More importantly, it’s about what matters to us, a couple with all the usual challenges that come with being in relationship.
Because I am a woman married to a man (Richard, my husband), the language I use and the references I make are often heterosexually based. However Tantra TaiChi is appropriate for all couples. If you are currently between relationships, the exercises can provide hope and guidance for your future.
My story opens with a poem, The Lover’s Touch, that came to me one evening long ago. Later that night, I visited a friend in the hospital, a psychotherapist who could no longer speak and had entered her final days. I read her the poem. Letter by letter, she laboriously spelled out a reply to me on an alphabet board that she kept by her bed. "You must publish this.” She wanted me to know that others would want to hear these words, that others would recognize within themselves the same yearning for intimacy.
I hope this book helps you and your partner find the intimate and sacred space within your own relationship. ~ Diana
I have had the privilege of being Diana’s husband for over twenty years. From the day I met her, I felt she had a message to bring to the world. I knew that the love I felt in her presence was not just for me alone, and that I would have to share her gifts with others. This book is one of those gifts. What she describes here is true. Together we have found a way to let our sexual energy take us into a magical experience. You can too. Diana and I do it every day and I can’t imagine why anyone in a relationship wouldn’t want to. It doesn’t take very long. We ourselves have a ten-minute commitment, you’ll read about it in this book. Go ahead and schedule appointments with your own partner. Let intimacy and love shape your day. You’ll both be glad. And the world will be a better place. ~ Richard
