For decades, Llewellyn has been one of the leading publishers of books on Western Spirituality. But as phones get cheaper to use, as fax machines and e-mail proliferate, the world becomes smaller and smaller. In the past, some occultists have suggested that you might best evolve within the major spiritual paradigm of the area of your birth. I think it is time to move beyond that, don't you? As Marshall McLuhan suggested, we now live in a "global village." I believe it is time to start thinking in terms of universal spirituality instead of limiting ourselves.
Even the Golden Dawn used ideas taken from the East. You can follow their example far more easily thanks to books such as Eric Steven Yudelove's Taoist Yoga and Sexual Energy. This is one of the clearest and most explicit descriptions of Taoist magical practices I've ever seen. The author, recognized as a Taoist Master by his teacher of 20 years, Mantak Chia, presents an entire system of working with the body's natural energies so that you can accomplish just about anything.
Perhaps learning how to move the energy is the most important aspect of this book. Here it is clearly explained, using over 130 illustrations so that you can more easily learn the specialized methods of breath, visualization, and physical positions. You will also learn healing techniques that you can use on yourself or share with others.
And working with a particular partner is where this book really shines. For the secrets of Taoist Sexual Kung Fu are very comparable to the innermost secrets of Tantra. You will learn how to arouse the sexual energy; direct it in yourself and your partner; spiritualize it; and then bathe yourself in it. This leads to states of mystical and sexual bliss that will take you far beyond anything you have done before.
If you have not looked at Eastern spirituality before, this book can introduce it to you. If you are familiar with Taoism, this book is a must!
