Tantra for Erotic Empowerment (Llewellyn Worldwide, ISBN: 073871197) by Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson has been named a National Best Books 2008 Award Winner in the Health: Sexuality category, and is an award-winning finalist in the Religion: Eastern Religions category. Last year Michaels and Johnson won the same honors for their first book, The Essence of Tantric Sexuality.
Tantra for Erotic Empowerment guides readers to sexual self-empowerment. Michaels and Johnson, who developed this book based on nine years of experience as Tantra teachers, share experiential methods for gaining self-knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of one’s own sexuality. In Tantra for Erotic Empowerment Michaels and Johnson take their readers on a Tantric journey of sexual self-discovery and show them how to experience pleasure with consciousness and intention and thereby enrich all aspects of their lives.
Featuring selections from Tantric literature for reflection, meditations, exercises, and practical techniques for exploring sexuality, plus a foreword from award-winning author, columnist, editor, and film director Tristan Taormino, Tantra for Erotic Empowerment is a practical handbook for anyone interested in exploring his or her own sexuality and having a more fulfilling life.
