Editorial Reviews

Review

"She does an excellent job at defining Tantra and its relationship within spirituality and divinity. . . . Easy to follow, and enjoyable to read." (Darla Kaye Wynne, New Witch)

"This courageous, intimate portrait reveals the ecstatic power and spiritual benefits of tantra, as well as its pitfalls, problems, and many temptations." (CHP, Bodhi Tree Bookstore, Winter 2002/Spring 2003)

From the Back Cover

TANTRA / SEXUALITY

Tantric Awakening is the story of a 19-year-old girl, disillusioned by the questions that her religion and society failed to answer, who courageously enters the sensuous rituals of tantric sex. In search of authentic knowledge, the author chooses the path of the tantrika, the female tantric adept, where she learns firsthand the ways of this spiritual path of sexual yoga. Amid disapproval from family and friends, her body and spirit awaken to ecstatic levels of orgasmic pleasure that allow her to experience a deep sense of oneness with God, loving relationships, and better health.

A personal and intimate portrait, Tantric Awakening is tastefully written to reveal not only the ecstatic power and spiritual benefits of tantra, but also the pitfalls, problems, and temptations of this path toward enlightenment. The author also includes first-person descriptions of the major components of a tantric practice--from student initiation and group ritual to simple meditations and physical exercises--to offer a thorough introduction to the world of tantra. Through the disclosure of her own epic experience with tantra, the author provides valuable insights into the contemporary experience of the tantrika while demonstrating how personal empowerment, social transformation, and spiritual awakening can all be attained through the sensual pleasures and practices of this yoga of love.

An initiate of the sacred cobra breath, VALERIE BROOKS achieved her first kundalini awakening at the age of twenty-three. She has been a student of Tantric Kriya Yoga for more than ten years, training with certified teachers of the Kriya Jyoti Tantric Society of Southern India (Saraswati Order). She resides in Los Angeles.

Format: Paperback
Delicious, yet highly informative. I bought this book with a skeptical mind, as a beginner on my tantric path, I am busy weeding out the cheap, cheesy, perverted sex-hype that occurs about anything vaguely related to sexualality in a Puritanical society and the new-age nonsense. I wasn't sure at first because of the steamy sex scenes but a closer look reveals much much more than that. It provides a perspective that a novice or just a curious person can use to understand the process of tantric awakening, without all the complicated mythology and history. I perfect starting point, although I recommend reading other more in depth books afterwards. It has made other works about tantra much more digestible. It's an easy read, I finished it in less than 24 hours.

Format: Paperback
I will mention right off the best thing about this book - an incomparable, mind-boggling love scene between the author and her Tantric guru. This is the hottest and best-described love scene I have ever read, culminating in her mind-blowing orgasm that explodes into blissful oneness with the universe (her description almost takes us there).

I am an English major and long-time student of Eastern philosphies; and I have never read anything like it.

The book is psychologically and philosophically solid, I believe; although one would do well to balance it with a non-Tantric mystical work from someone truly enlightened, such as Echhart Tolle's "The Power of Now."

This book also helps men in understanding the thought processes of the female. I found it to be insightful and wonderfully simple. Many books on this subject try to be mystical or bury you in history. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is starting their (male or female) tantric path.

Format: Paperback
I first heard of Valerie Brooks on a radio interview and then I attended one of her many book lectures. She truly has carved out an enviable reputation as the premier author & lecturer on Tantra. "Tantric Awakening" is written clearly and eloquently so that the reader is able to grasp the big picture from falling in love, meditation, infinite orgasms to being one with God. The brilliance of this book is such that as you read the story of this 19 year old girl's initiation into the world of Tantra, you gain her wisdom and learn first-hand about the various aspects of Tantra. I recommend this book to anyone, not just interested in learning more about Tantra, but more about life itself. You will enjoy this personal journey you are about to experience through Valerie Brooks', "Tantric Awakening".

Format: Paperback
This book about Tantra is one of the best written and most easy to follow. Not only does it tell a story but also provides some very insightful information about the world of Tantra and spirituality. I recommend this book from the novice, wanting to learn more about Tantra to the expert, wanting to share the experience of a young woman's journey.
