Product Description

From the Author

Unique, beautiful and original presentation of Tantric ideas
My book is the result of research and experience and I discuss aspects never revealed before or interpreted for the West.

The very language we use contains the secrets of Tantric sexuality - turn to page 81 and read the Chapter "Sexual Terminology: Semantics of the Inner Life".

You may have heard "it is all in the way y ou hold your tongue!"? Read the Tantric mysteries of why the tongue is an intimate sexual /psychic organ and how an ancient yogic tongue practice can actually slow your metabolism: (Page 58 "The Autosexual Gesture")

Discover the exact definition of "A Tantric Orgasm" and the results: (Page 49)

Find out the truth about the popular idea that loss of energy results from ejaculation and also understand the real reason for Tantric practices which retard ejaculation.( read the chapter entitled "Tantra".)

Learn why sitting up postures are preferred for couples 'coupling' ("Asanas of Love" page 47))

If you really want an esoteric undrstanding of the Chakras as Tantric symbols explore my revelations starting page 69 (A Tantric synoptic Commentary on the Shat Chakras) and study the beautiful accompanying color plates as I take you on an inner journey.

Ecstasy Through Tantra is the only book integrating both Sex Magic and Indian sexual Tantra with original information and insights that are an amalgamation of Western education and Eastern Initiation.

Format: Paperback
This book is a wonderful introduction to the the wonders of Tantra. Though not a long book, it has a lot of interesting information. I learned alot about my own body's capabilities and through the techniques, greatly enhanced my enjoyment and my prowess as a lover (and improved my lover's enjoyment as well). Mumford's book is an excellent resource for unusual and powerful insights into the sacred magic of tantra/sexuality. There is a very informative glossary of terms in the book, and explanations about certain aspects that may be surprising. The chapter on the Tantric Weekend is a wonderful guide to share a beautiful and loving retreat with one's partner. I strongly recommend this book to improve relationships not only between lovers but also to one's own potential to touch their own sacred bliss and enjoyment of their own bodies. John Mumford has obviously done his research, because he points out aspects in his book that I've not seen in other books on Tantra. I think the thing I like best about his book is that it allows eastern tantra to meet with the western mind. My current copy is the second one I've bought because the first one I bought became so dog-eared...Highly recommended.

If you would like a good introduction to Trantra then I do NOT recommend this book. It's one of those New Agey, large print books with a lot of waffle about "sex magick". The tantric posture sections was nothing new and a bit sparse on positions etc (and pictures).
If you want a good book on the history of tantra and its philosophy I recommend reading Tantra by Indra Sinha (despite the author's posts being a bit arrogant the book is very well written) and for a good book on sex - The Art of Sexual Ecstasy by Margo Anand.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. C. J. Allen on 24 Oct. 2011
Format: Paperback
I'm not even sure if this book is still available, llewellyn have gone a bit mainstream it seems.

If this book is still available at a decent price then it's a must if you're serious about tantra. If you get bored easily then it's not for you though. It's a serious book for serious people, and the negative reviewer obviously has some kind of personal resentment or has taken offence at something. Dr. Mumford is an initiated Swami, a tantric monk! You don't really get much more of an authority on tantra, his teachings are world famous.

The best anyone could do is take Dr. Mumford's online course in Kriya Yoga.

THE ULTIMATE TANTRIC RESOURCE! 3 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Fantastic!
This book has proven to be a continual resource of information. It is multileveled, so the beginner and serious student both benefit. Through theNsimple exercises you will learn valuable methods of making love not only to others, but to yourself, awakening mystical union and opening to alchemical transformation. Dr. Mumford has created a rare resource book, authentic through his extensive experience in initiated practices in India, filtered through a western mind to be an easy to read approach and grounded through scientific and medical knowledge. Few other resources have such extensive training. Through the mirrors of Dr. Mumford's expansive research, the vision of Tantra becomes clearer...Patricia, tantra teacher,

Ecstasy Through Tantra 1 Sept. 2000
By Lidia Rodrigues - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ecstasy Through Tantra is, without a doubt, one of the best Tantric Yoga books I have ever read and one I often recommend to clients and friends whether they are new to Tantra or have some knowleldge of it. Students of all levels will be able to find something in Ecstasy Through Tantra. The beginner will gain an excellent understanding of Tantric Yoga after reading the book and the intermediate and advanced student will benefit from practicing the powerful techniques which are presented in such a beautiful and masterful way. Ecstasy Through Tantra is not just another book on the subject of Tantric Yoga. It is rather an insightful, beautiful and practical manual of Tantric Yoga, sexuality and spirituality with very valuable information for the Western mind. Ecstasy Through Tantra is a must for the serious student, practitioner or teacher of Tantric Yoga. Lidia Rodrigues, LICSW, Body Oriented Psychotherapist, Yoga, Meditation and Tantric Yoga Teacher.

Great book! 22 Oct. 2000
By Liliana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Ecstasy Through Tantra" has been my companion in spiritual work for the last several months. It is full of knowledge about Tantra and spirituality in general, explaining the esoteric meaning of numerous symbols in fascinating detail, describing magical rituals, and also offering practical exercises, particularly for couples who want to proceed on a spiritual path together. It is a relationship-friendly book, helping us to see our partners as divine beings, and introducing us to the wondrous world of sexual magic. The book contains many attractive illustrations, including "The Asanas of Love", and a whole set of chakra mandalas for contemplation and meditation. "Ecstasy Through Tantra" is a celebration of eroticism and sexuality in a spiritual context.
