Earth Honoring: The New Male Sexuality

Earth Honoring: The New Male Sexuality Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robert Lawlor calls upon the ritualistic nature of sexual behavior in tribal cultures and in the Tantric and Taoist traditions to provide valuable guidance for reversing the unhealthy excesses of male energy. Looking to the earth honoring, matriarchal societies, he focuses on specific techniques used in the sexual and spiritual training of males to energize creative potential and redirect the quest for power and dominance into constructive channels. He shows how the initiatic disciplines of orgiastic control enabled men and women to achieve extraordinary, ecstatic experiences, providing the basis for increased spiritual awareness. Modern adaptations of these methods are revealed, along with their profound repercussions on the male psyche and ultimately on society.
