Editorial Reviews

Review

"Eros Ascending goes straight to the heart of the matter. It is a serious book about mature deep sexuality that takes itself lightly. It is a valuable guide to help people who have been sexually traumatized to regain their innate capacity for pleasure and goodness."
—Peter A. Levine, PhD, best-selling author of In an Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness and Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma: The Innate Capacity to Transform Overwhelming Experiences

Eros Ascending is going to take you on an amazing journey toward the future of love in the Western world.”
—From the Foreword by Linda E. Savage, PhD, author of Reclaiming Goddess Sexuality: The Power of the Feminine Way
 
“Taylor is an erotic visionary after my own heart. Eros Ascending is a fun, highly readable next-gen Bible for lovers of sacred sex. While Taoist sexual techniques supply the practical energetic methods, he rolls into one believable, continuous orgasm Kriya Yoga, Gurdjieff, tantric ecstasy, Jungian androgyny, Plato, and sexual communion with deep Earth Goddess. It's loaded with practical ‘how-to’ tips and decades of amazing stories. He adroitly reverses Christianity's demonization of sex by revealing the inherently erotic nature of Christ-cum-Solar Logos. An enlightening and entertaining must read.”
—Michael Winn, coauthor with Mantak Chia, Taoist Secrets of Love: Cultivating Male Sexual Energy
 
“Taylor understands the role of Eros as creating interconnection. He unites man and woman, Eros and Psyche, spirit and nature, and heaven and earth, while seeding our hearts and minds with a sense that our true destiny lies in reclaiming for ourselves the beauty of love. A unique and original masterwork.”
—Radmila Moacanin, PhD, author of Jung's Psychology and Tibetan Buddhism: Western and Eastern Paths to the Heart
 
Eros Ascending sharpens our focus on the power of loving consciously and intelligently. The book sweeps us into the twenty-first century with its breadth of vision and message of hope for true lovers everywhere. Destined to become a classic.”
—Margot Anand, author of The Art of Sexual Ecstasy: The Path of Sacred Sexuality for Western Lovers
 
"Excellent! A sweeping intelligent study of sacred sex long overdue! Especially one helpful to individuals in their spiritual and sexual growth ... and useful to popular culture. Those practicing Tantra already will find their excitement rekindled, their minds stimulated, and spirits re-enthused as they move to the next evolutionary stage."
—Deborah Sundahl, author of Female Ejaculation and the G-Spot: Not Your Mother’s Orgasm Book!
 
Eros Ascending profoundly explores the power of shakti and sacred sexuality as life-transforming sacraments. [The book is] a journey into higher states of consciousness and ecstasy.”
—Charles Muir, author of Tantra: The Art of Conscious Loving and founder of Source School of Tantra Yoga
 
"Eros Ascending is one of the few and finest offerings to honor the concept of the sacredness of sexuality. The powerful knowledge, examples, and practices in this book have the ability to transform each and every one of us. As I dare to even imagine a world thus transformed, the tingle of energy rises up my spine in recognition of the divine ecstasy all around us."
Suzie Heumann, author of The Rules of Love: The 64 Arts of the Kama Sutra and founder of www.tantra.com
 
"For any sexual explorer, like myself, this book is a must. [It is] a work of profound scope, weaving insight, information, and inspiration into a rich tapestry of personal experience."
—Diana Richardson, author of Tantric Orgasm for Women
 
"Playing Carl Gustav Jung in his marvelous award-winning twenty character one-man play Forever Jung (which I saw twice) must have had a profound effect on John Maxwell Taylor. In Eros Ascending he speaks with a depth of humanity and psychological insight that Jung would doubtless recognize as a complete expression of the author’s living ethos. This book transcends the mere scholarly to reach through the mind and touch the soul.
—Dr. Herb Agan, Jungian psychologist and frequent lecturer at the Jung Center of Houston
 
"Impressive and comprehensive...a treasure trove of information on sacred sexuality."
EnlightenNext magazine
 
"[Eros Ascending is] full of information and insight. It reads like an adventure story. I couldn't put it down."
The Light Connection magazine

Format: Paperback
I highly recommend Eros Ascending to everyone seeking to learn more about Tantra. I fell in love with this book the moment I saw it and read it from cover to cover. It is full of profound information relevant to the REAL TANTRA - at least as I see it - as something that weaves together mind, heart, body, spirit, and energy, starting with one's own body mind system.

John Maxwell Taylor gives us the maps we need to start with our own systems and work our way outwards to make exquisite love to another, as well as to the world around us. He defines sexual energy as the true transformative life force energy. I am so thrilled to see a work on sex and eros that is so all-encompassing in scope... daring... and even wildly entertaining. This book is riveting. You will learn learn so much more about your true potential for sex, life, love, transformation, and transmutation of your life force energy.

Eros Ascending has gotten incredible reviews from many of the really important people in the Tantra field. This is why. It's a beautiful, moving and remarkable transmission.

For those of us who have read everything and know what a privilege it is to share and learn about esoteric knowledge this book is your next MUST. Its sacred sexuality as a path to liberation. It will push your boundaries and you will enter the possibility of a new realm of being: physical, sexual, emotional, spiritual, psychological, and intellectual. It's a book written for modern MEN and WOMEN, bravo, and it brings together the dilemma for the seeker the integration of our innate drives for sexuality, creativity and evolution of consciousness. Ultimately it is a treatise on love: romantic, ecstatic and universal; it's in our hands. It's a long, slow, luxurious read, just like love and making love should be! May all beings be happy, and with Mr. Taylor's guidance we surely will.

As someone just starting to study Tantra and Taoism, I cannot say enough about the excellence of this book. While it is lengthy, its layout in short sub-chapters made it easy to read as time permitted.

Format: Paperback
Expertly written through his personal experience and scholarly research, John Maxwell Taylor's Eros Ascending enlightens its readers on the spiritual purpose and practice of sexuality, alone and in partnership. It reads like listening to a highly intelligent, loving, and entertaining friend, and lays to rest the guilt and misunderstanding of the true function of sexual energy for us in the 21st century. An invaluable, practical guidebook for connecting with one's True Self in conjunction with conscious sexual practice.
