In Ecstasy Through Tantra, Dr. Jonn Mumford celebrates the joyous and mystical depths of sexual love. People are more open about sex today, and so it is now possible to talk openly about going beyond mere joy, beyond the physical and emotional aspects of sexual union, to the ecstasy of union with Divine Power that is centered in every body and throughout the universe. In the pages of this book you will learn that you do not need to go to the top of a mountain to commune with Divinity; Its temple is the body, Its sacrament the communion between lovers, and that communion involves all the awesome powers of the universe in the microcosm of the lovers. You will learn mental and physical exercises aimed at developing that psycho-sexual power. Once you have mastered those techniques, you will find explicit instructions for using sexual activity to achieve your goals on earth (magic) and on the spiritual planes (bliss). Ecstasy Through Tantra is filled with magnificent original illustrations as well as ones from ancient sources. There are many exclusive photos of ancient temples and erotic sculptures in India, as well as color photographs of couples demonstrating sexual positions for the arousal of kundalini in Tantric practice. This groundbreaking book is your guide to the world of sacred sexuality.
