Description

In this extraordinary celebration of the erotic, Dr Stuart Sovatsky introduces us to the Tantric art of sexual sublimation, in which sexual is redirected toward achieving higher awareness and an erotic satisfaction for beyond that possible through intercourse.

The potential reasons for exploring Tantric celibacy are many-including the desire to deepen a life partnership, to gain a new level of mastery over one’s body to heal the emotional scars of sexual abuse, to practice safe sex, or to explore the intimate relationship between spirituality and sexuality.

Exercises based on yoga, kundalini and charka meditation make Eros, Consciousness and Kundalini a practical guide to the world of Tantric celibacy. By transcending the boundaries of conventional sexuality, one can learn to harness the divine energy-glimpsed for only an instant by most people-that is at the heart of all erotic yearning.

REVIEWS

Tantra is widely and grossly misunderstood in the West, In Eros, Consciousness and Kundalini Dr Sovatsky provides a much-needed corrective, revealing Tantra’s most powerful aspect: the conversion of sexual energy into a higher consciousness-altering vitality.
-Georg Feuerstein, PhD, author of Sacred Sexual

Dr Stuart Sovatsky is an extra-ordinary person and he has written an extra-ordinary book. He seems to understand our won (Indian) culture, better than we ourselves do, He shows us a, higher path in a poetic language that speaks to our souls, May be the search was always for the sat-chit-ananda.
-Prabhakar Vaidya, PhD, Research Fellow, National Institute of Advanced Studies, Bangalore

Dr Sovatsky is a rare combination of scholar and sage. The depth and breadth of his understanding of yoga is remarkable, but even more remarkable is the integrity of his practice. Eros, consciousness and Kundalini is an intellectually profound and emotionally moving book. It brings to vivid, breathing life for modern sensibilities the ancient teachings of Tantric celibacy.
-Richard Rosen, contributing Editor, Yoga Journal and author of The Yoga of Breath: A Step-by-by-Step Guide to Pranayama

Reading this book was a spiritual experience. The narrative transcends the style of theorization and adopts the method of experience. A complete guide to understand the origins and development of Hatha Yoga as a science for the enlightenment of the complete body-mind-spirit.
-Sangeetha Menon, PhD, Research Fellow, National Institute of Advanced Studies, Bangalore
