From the Back Cover
Healing Love through the Tao reveals the traditional Taoist practices that enable women to cultivate and enhance their sexual energy by transforming it into creative power, healing power, and spiritual power. For thousands of years the sexual principles and techniques presented here were taught by Taoist masters in secret to only a small number of people, sworn to silence, in the royal courts and esoteric circles of China. Healing Love through the Tao is the first book to make this ancient knowledge available to the West.
The foundation of healing love is the cultivation, transformation, and circulation of sexual energy, known as jing. Jing energy is creative, generative energy that is vital for the development of chi (vital life-force energy) and shen (spiritual energy), which enables higher practices of spiritual development. Jing is produced in the sexual organs, and women continually lose this energy through menstruation and child bearing. Mantak Chia teaches powerful techniques developed by Taoist masters for the conservation of jing and how to use it to revitalize women’s physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Among the many benefits conferred by these practices are a reduction in the discomfort caused by menstruation and the ability to attain full-body orgasm.
MANTAK CHIA, a student of several Taoist masters, founded the Universal Healing Tao System in 1979. He has taught and certified tens of thousands of students and instructors from all over the world and tours the United States annually, giving workshops and lectures. He is the director of the Tao Garden Integrative Medicine Health Spa and Resort and the Universal Healing Tao training center in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand. He is the author of twenty-five books, including the bestselling The Multi-Orgasmic Woman and Sexual Reflexology.
