Synopses & Reviews
In zen, every moment is a chance to lose ourselves in the substance of life, every encounter an opportunity for spiritual awakening. In this passionate and inspiring guide, Philip Toshio Sudo explains the zen of sex.
"Don't try. Do," say zen masters. Put technique aside. Stop fretting over sexual frequency. Love your body. Frolic. Tease. Make love. All it takes to be a good zen lover is a giving heart, and the awareness of the life force coursing through our bodies. Zen Sex will help you cultivate that love within the capacity for feeling ecstacy and giving joy that is nothing short of divine.
Anyone who desires more fulfilling sex can put the classic zen priciples offered here into practice in their lives. Zen parables, koans, and poems illuminate Sudo's message, meditations encourage pause and reflection, and exercises get you started on the Way of Making Love, zen style.
Great sex, zen sex, reminds us that we are ever alive and full of love. In making love, our bodies intertwined, we are at one with ourselves, each other, and with the very source of life. "Every night of passion becomes an opportunity to elevate the human spirit."

Zen philosophy teaches that everything from washing dishes to sitting at the computer offers an opportunity to experience the essence of life and attain true wisdom and enlightenment. Zen Sex shows how this philosophy applies no less in the bedroom that in the meditation hall. In the first book to bring together Zen and sex, readers are guided through 'The Seven Ways of the Mind', 'The Seven Ways of the Body', and 'The Seven Ways of the Spirit'. Zen stories and simple steps show both men and women how to create loving relationships, and easy-to-do practices will enable lovers to enhance their sexual and spiritual lives. Philip Roshio Sudo reminds our sex-obsessed age how love-making can become a means to experience the sacredness of life and one another, and how 'Zen Sex is the best sex you can possibly have'.
Artfully presented, Zen's eternal principles are applied to love-making, illuminating the rich spiritual and sensual possibilities of fully savouring each moment of sexual intimacy.
