Product Description

Product Description

‘Taoist Foreplay: Shiatsu Secrets for Love’ reveals the secrets of Taoist Foreplay, from it’s origins at the Court of the legendary Yellow Emperor through 4,000 years of sexual history to its relevance for modern lovers: combining loving touch with healing power.
Sexual practices have been studied for centuries in both East and West. Chinese and Japanese traditions combined the study of sex with medicine: certain pressure-points and meridians were found to stimulate and sustain sexual desire. Using the secrets of these points and channels makes for longer and more pleasurable sexual encounters. Peak moments can be prolonged beyond bliss, into ecstasy. Like cooking a Chinese meal, preparation is the key.
"Yes, you can become a far more effective Lover," says North. "Woman, man, straight, gay and bi, you can please your partner and please yourself. The act itself is natural. You know what to do. It is the moments leading up to the act which make it more or less pleasurable for your partner. Women fear insensitivity. Men fear inability to perform. Both fear rejection. Knowing the psycho-sensual secrets of certain pressure points helps you become a better lover, however good you are already. Are you aroused more quickly, your partner more slowly? Its quite usual for the man to climax first. Woman comes to the boil more slowly but simmers longer. He’s done in, she ready for more. "
Based on the form of a conventional shiatsu treatment, the text and pictures give detailed guidance, showing precisely where to place the hands - and other body-parts - to stimulate and sustain arousal.
Many of the pressure points from shiatsu healing massage are shown with their more arcane applications, sometimes with passing reference to the clinical use, for example:
"Conception Vessel 1, known as the Gate of Life and Death, so named because the retention of sexual energy is said to prolong life, has subtle use as arousal point for both sexes, especially good for prolonging male orgasm. Clinical use is said to be able help with prevention and relief of symptoms of some prostate conditions."
Self-shiatsu is well covered, with exercises for men and women to keep themselves at the peak of sexual fitness, and the women’s practice of using the famous Chinese Drilled Jade Egg is described in detail.
A chapter on what to look for in a lover, from astrological compatibility to physical attributes as indicators of sexual performance, is followed by advice on coping with sex-vampires and energy-parasites.
At the end, useful contacts for learning more.

More About the Author

Born in wartime London in the Year of the Dragon and a hail of bombs, Kris spent his childhood in South America and teen years in the turbulence of Mau-Mau Kenya. At age fifteen the Wakamba tribe initiated him as an honorary member. Dancing in their drum-circles he witnessed fire-bathing adepts roll around in flames, unharmed. Military action in South Arabia and Borneo introduced him to real-life death. Service with the Gurkhas of Nepal steeped him in the culture and traditions of these Kali-worshippers and their rituals of blood-sacrifice. 25 years in business and management followed, until Kris changed his life, to oriental healing and martial arts. In 1991, he set out to learn from masters throughout Asia, Japan and USA. Impressed by the teachings of Mantak Chia, Kris embraced the Tao.
In 1993 he came home to the scepter'd isle, to found the London Tao Center, Chi Nei Tsang Institute, and Zen School of Shiatsu, the latter becoming in 2009 the first to be accredited by the British Accreditation Council. Kris sat on the Assessment Panel of the Shiatsu Society UK, before founding the Zen Shiatsu Society in 2004. He was closely involved with Skills for Health drafting the Shiatsu National Occupational Standard and in 2009 was appointed to the Shiatsu Professional Board of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, the UK Regulator for complementary medicine.
Master of the Zen School, Taoist Master Trainer and Licensed Trainer of Neurolinguistic Programming, Kris Deva North has practised healing meditation since 1972 and the Taoist Arts since 1985. He integrates Shamanic, Tantric and Taoist traditions from his experiences, travelling with a Thai Buddhist monk; satsang with Shiva Saddhus in the Himalaya, Shamans of Africa, North America and Hawaii; Aboriginal men of high degree in Australia; darshan with the Dalai Lama; witnessing last rites in Varanasi and puja with the Brahmins of Pushkar.
To balance his grounding in ancient practices Kris keeps up with the most advanced modern Life-training techniques, from the Mind Dynamics of the 1970s to state-of-the-art NLP of the new millennium. In 2006 he founded the Healing NLP Institute after training with Richard Bandler and Paul McKenna, pioneers of modern shamanic practice through their work with altered states.
His UK national TV appearances include Bliss, Emma Freud's series on Sex and Religion; Nick Hancock's Sex and Stopping - History of Contraception; Carlton TV City Survival Guide. In 2004 Channel 4 made an observational documentary of his teaching Taoist practices to a group of celebrities: Extreme Celebrity Detox.

Published work includes the articles Zen as a Philosophical Discipline; Taoist Teaching, Taoist Practice, Taoist Life; An overview of Chi Nei Tsang; Shiatsu - Ancient Medicine for the 21st Century; Calabash of Light - Hawaiian Huna Healing; and the definitive 1998 Interview with Mantak Chia, 'A Modern Taoist Master' with whom Kris co-authored 'A Touch of Sex: Shiatsu Secrets for Love' republished by Bear and Company in July 2010 as 'Taoist Foreplay.'
Kris has also written the definitive 'Finding Spirit in Zen Shiatsu,' published November 2006, and contributed with Wayne Dyer and others to 'Bouncing Back: Thriving in Changing Times' an anthology on success in recession, published February 2010. In November 2010 he published 'The Taoist Medicine Wheel' republished with contributions by Mantak Chia as 'Taoist Shaman' by Bear & Co in January 2011.
Asked his greatest achievement, he replies, "Learning to surf at 68!"
Kris has come full circle now, living in London just three miles from where he was born. Continuing to step lightly in all worlds he travels the globe with his beloved partner and shamanic twin-soul, Anamarta, teaching Zen Shiatsu, Healing Tao and Healing NLP.
