Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Beyond Sex: Tantra started out as a book project with a group of other authors. We were asked to write the ABC's of our subject, make it accessible to a mass audience and use only 500 words to write each chapter, and the catch was it had to be done in 6 weeks!

Tantra is a vast subject with many current misconceptions and I could easily spend a lifetime writing on any one of the philosophies or rituals that are a part of it. I have always felt that the more simply a concept can be expressed, the more chance it has of being understood and utilized. In that way I was up for the challenge of this little book.

I used the ABC format and went to work on big concepts like Being versus Doing, Presence, Manifesting, Expansion and Contraction, Sexual Healing, and Evolving Relationships, blending my knowledge of Classical Tantra, Neo Tantra and my own version Modern Tantra, together to bring clarity, simplicity and ease to each chapter.

I wrote each segment to use as a one chapter at a time experience. Take a chapter, read it, do the how to and then spend some time in the space of it. Really get into the experience and integrate the Ah Ha!  moments.

As it turns out the book project fell through and we went ahead and published the book, creating our own art work for the cover, doing all the formatting and everything else ourselves. What a learning experience that was! 

I am happy and delighted to bring you this practical, easy to read, yet deep and thought provoking first book. Thank you for your support and continue to write to me about the incredible experiences you are having because of it.
be amazing, 
Tanja Diamond

From the Back Cover

Tanja Diamond has bridged the gap between the "woo woo" and practical understanding and implementation of spiritual awakening in Beyond Sex: Tantra. At once funny and controversial, Tanja delivers with her usual flair and explains to us that Tantra is more than sexual technique; its practices can be used for business, life and relationships. Prepare yourself for a life changing journey and empowerment as you travel through chapters ranging from Arousal, Intent and Integrity, Business for Tantra and even an understanding of why Zen is for Sissies! This book is for anyone and everyone looking to take life from mere existence, to living in full human potential.

I give this book a 5 star rating, for really putting things into perspective for somebody as untrained in this, as I am.

A couple of things - The author states, in her 'Author's Notes': "There are times throughout the book you may run into a word which may not appear in the dictionary."

I agree, with the above statement - In Fact - you may not be able to find her words ANYWHERE that make much sense.

Next, and Most Important - Look at the Five Star Reviews, to date: There are Thirteen listed, as of right NOW. Is it any small wonder - all of those reviewers have ONLY reviewed this ONE BOOK, and, one reviewer also reviewed other, non-book items.

I go now, to delete this waste of space from my Cloud & Kindle.

Living in the San Francisco Bay Area - there's a whole lot of tantra going on!

Beyond Sex:Tantra opens up tantra, just as it says - beyond sex. There are many deep tantric yogic practices that deal with energies in tantric fashion. This book helps illuminate tantra beyond the 'sex trade' for readers.

There are thousands of books available on how to work with energies in the body and how energy work is vital to our well being. Tanja helps the reader to go deeper into the possibilities. I found it interesting that I found this book and a retreat on The Tantra of Everyday life on the same day.

I recommend the book, but have yet to attend the retreat and this is not the place to review it.

I'm only giving the book 4 stars as I think I must reserve 5 stars for the ancient wisdom texts on the subject.

Interesting quick read. Wasn't what I was expecting, but I was glad. We should all strive to experience life to the fullest and Tanja lays out the groundwork for how to do it. I expect more great reads from Tanja.

I was amazed at how easy this was to read and understand, and I enjoyed her conversational style. I never realized how simple many of these spiritual concepts are to practice, especially when it's explained right. This book is spiced with humor and a very frank attitude about sexuality, but it seems to be about life and how to put spiritual practices into everyday life- just as advertised. I learned that Tantra is a philosophy, not a religion or a sexual technique. Wow! My eyes are opened.

Tanja's Book brings tantra to a wide audience with an accessible narrative style plainly written. Each brief chapter expands the ancient wisdom of tantra into a clearly understandable American world.
Each chapter ends with a suggestion for practicing it's concepts. Here I would've found more specific directions very helpful, although the generalized suggestions will be quite helpful I'm sure.
I would have enjoyed more personal stories of her journey in tantric growth; possibly specific encounters with her many teachers.
Her book is an obviously valuable contribution to any beginner.

I really enjoyed how Tanja Diamond wrote this book, the format is easy to read and it's like we are talking one on one. It's a great way to introduce a lover, friend or family member to Tantra. Great chapters that talk about Beliefs, Doing versus Being, Manifesting your Desires, and Why Porn is Destroying your Sex Life! If you are curious about Tantra then it's a must read!

In our modern Western society we have learned to live in high levels of stress, competition, shallow relationships; striving for success but living without fulfillment. Tanja brings the wisdom and practice of an ancient philosophy into our time to show us that there is a way to find an energized life and be free of the pressures of this age that tend to rob us of a truly joyful existence. I've been following her teaching for a while and found her to be more than encouraging: she's a blessing. Her frank, honest and humorous style is easy to identify with. This is a good introduction for those looking for guidance into a fuller life.
