Awakening Female Sexual Energy
Paperback ISBN: 1594772746
A tantric massage practice for awakening and enhancing women’s innate sensual, emotional, and spiritual energies • Provides emotional healing by releasing traumatic memories stored in the yoni • Includes exercises that use sexual energy to cleanse and stimulate the chakras • Empowers women to draw strength and radiant vitality from the restored connection to their innermost core “Yoni” is the Sanskrit word for the female genitalia, describing not only the anatomy but also encompassing the energetic and spiritual dimensions. While a yoni massage offers women the opportunity to enhance their sexuality, Michaela Riedl shows that the effects of this practice are much more profound and have ramifications affecting every area of life. Long held inhibitions in the West about sexuality and the shame and guilt associated with the sexual zones of the body have created deep-seated barriers that prevent individuals from fully expressing themselves. The practices provided in Yoni Massage are designed to allow women to overcome these barriers and reconnect to their innermost core and deepest feminine nature. Yoni massage is not simply a hands-on technique but involves the conscious direction of energy throughout the body through deep breathing and visualization. It provides women the ability to cleanse and energetically stimulate the chakras as well as achieve emotional healing by releasing the traumatic pain that often becomes seated in the yoni. The author explains that the relegation of this important spiritual and energetic center to a “private part” hinders the process of enlightenment. Once women are able to be in touch with their yoni energy, their connection to the entire web of life is restored to its rightful place.

The Secret Pleasures of Menopause Playbook
A Guide to Creating Vibrant Health Through Pleasure
Hardcover ISBN: 1401924018
Why a Playbook: When I was writing The Secret Pleasures of Menopause, I began to hear more and more stories from other women about exactly what I was writing about: how opening up to and expanding joy and pleasure in midlife creates vibrant health physically, emotionally, and spiritually—including the best sex of your life. I was inspired by the many touching and creative stories I was hearing from women who definitely saw midlife as the start of the absolute best years of their lives. So I decided to put together a playbook (as opposed to a workbook) that you could use as a companion to The Secret Pleasures of Menopause—a book that would provide you with specific examples of what real, live women just like you are actually doing to enhance their levels of life-giving nitric oxide through pleasure. In these pages, you’ll meet women with strong, passionate life forces who respect and love themselves enough to speak their truth; heal their pasts; and let go of mindsets, relationships, and behaviours that no longer serve them. They also don’t hesitate to kick up their heels and have a great time, doing whatever makes their hearts sing. The upshot: They’ve been able to stoke their inner fire and cultivate pleasure, joy, and vibrant health on every level and with every breath. Let this book be your personal guide to the territory of life-giving pleasure. And make sure that you use the space provided to write down and commit to your own personal pleasure plan.
