Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

          For decades, Llewellyn has been one of the leading publishers of books on Western Spirituality. But as phones get cheaper to use, as fax machines and e-mail proliferate, the world becomes smaller and smaller. In the past, some occultists have suggested that you might best evolve within the major spiritual paradigm of the area of your birth. I think it is time to move beyond that, don't you? As Marshall McLuhan suggested, we now live in a "global village." I believe it is time to start thinking in terms of universal spirituality instead of limiting ourselves.
Even the Golden Dawn used ideas taken from the East. You can follow their example far more easily thanks to books such as Eric Steven Yudelove's Taoist Yoga and Sexual Energy. This is one of the clearest and most explicit descriptions of Taoist magical practices I've ever seen. The author, recognized as a Taoist Master by his teacher of 20 years, Mantak Chia, presents an entire system of working with the body's natural energies so that you can accomplish just about anything.
Perhaps learning how to move the energy is the most important aspect of this book. Here it is clearly explained, using over 130 illustrations so that you can more easily learn the specialized methods of breath, visualization, and physical positions. You will also learn healing techniques that you can use on yourself or share with others.
And working with a particular partner is where this book really shines. For the secrets of Taoist Sexual Kung Fu are very comparable to the innermost secrets of Tantra. You will learn how to arouse the sexual energy; direct it in yourself and your partner; spiritualize it; and then bathe yourself in it. This leads to states of mystical and sexual bliss that will take you far beyond anything you have done before.
If you have not looked at Eastern spirituality before, this book can introduce it to you. If you are familiar with Taoism, this book is a must!

About the Author

Eric Yudelove has studied Taoist practices since 1970. In 1981, he was one of the first American students chosen to study with Mantak Chia, the authenic Tao Master who had recently emigrated to the US from Thailand. In 1983, he became one of the original Certified Instructors for the Healing Tao. Since then he has continued to teach, write about the study of Chi Kung, Tai Chi, Taoist meditation, and the long held secret practices of Taoist Internal Alchemy and Taoist Sexual Yoga. In 1997, he was awarded Senior Instructor status from the Mantak Chia’s International Healing Tao.

Yudelove’s third title for Llewellyn, Taoist Yoga and Sexual Energy, uses the same three-pronged approach first presented in his title 100 Days To Better Health, Good Sex & Long Life—100 days, or 14 weeks, of lessons on the Three Treasures of Taoist Yoga: Chi (breath), Jing (body), and Shen (mind). Where 100 Days… used introductory lessons, Taoist Yoga and Sexual Energy continues to more advanced practices and lessons.

It's very informative regarding the Daoist techniques for chi cultivation and mastery of the sexual energy.

This book is not for everyone, but to the few that can profit from it, I recommend it highly.

Format: Paperback
This is a unique book, a step-by-step tutor to higher levels of Taoist Spiritual Alchemy given in a systematic way. The final God and Goddess exercise is the best technique I have come across - yet it appears as a result from all 14 weeks' exercises woven into an extremely efficient method which puts us in contact with higher forces of the Universe. The books seems like a summary of Mantak Chia's reachings, but in fact it is not. It is a real breakthough.
Just an advice - the book may be used by beginners, but I recommend potential practitioners to start with the "100 Days" book by the author. The Golden Flower will make things REALLY work.

Format: Paperback
As a long time practitioner of qigong, I have never been a fan of Mantak Chia's work; I found his books to be too scattered, and difficult to piece together. Yudelove manages to take Chia's system, and not only make it understandable, but also make it safe by adding the element of timing and systematic practice.

This book is clearly written, fun to read, and packed full of good info. The only caution would be that I would not recommend it for beginners; I think that many of the practices are outside the beginning level ability to feel what all those metaphors are talking about. It is a supurb text for those who have some level of development-- this is the difference between high school and 300 level college credits.

All things said and done, this is the best book on the subject matter I have ever read. For better beginning texts, I would check out "opening the energy gates of your body" by B.K. Frantzis, and "the way of energy."

I began with Tao Yoga reading Mantak Chia's books - they're great ! This one presents essentially the same knowledge, with some minor add ons (and leave outs). What I liked about it is the well structered approach (something I missed with Chia) and the excellent illustrations. I recommend it as an introduction to Tao Yoga. If you can afford it get the Chia books as well. And YES, my sex life got a hell lot more exciting!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Erick Yudelove has been a student of Mantak Chia. He has put together a manual for practice that encompasses the information that could be found in Mantak Chia's books, but is further enhanced, clarified and perhaps simplified by Yudelove's own discoveries.

The book covers some basic practices from Taoist Alchemy such as Six Healing Sounds, Microcosmic Orbit, Inner Smile and some forms of breathing before proceeding with sexual practices. The book also includes the practices related to the Fusion of the Five Elements, Bone Marrow and Standing Chi Kung.
