Sexual Secrets:  
The Alchemy of Ecstasy  
by Nik Douglas
Penny Slinger Destiny Books

 

This is a new edition for the 20th anniversary of the book’s original publication. This one is full-color throughout … bright, vivid, even throbbing color you might say. You really want to see these pictures. Just don’t leave the book on the coffeetable before your uptight employer comes over for tea.

The Illustrated Kama Sutra:
The Classic Eastern Love Texts  
Edited by Charles Fowkes
Park Street Press

 

It was with great trepidation that I finally bit the proverbial bullet, put down Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time, and began to absorb this piece. The twists, contortions, and painful-looking pictures brought tears to my eyes. And no, children, I’m NOT talking about Hawking.

Bhagavad Gita for
Modern Times

by Swami Sadashiva Tirtha
Sat Yuga Press, 2007

 

When I read the introductory chapter of this book I was very excited. I often get asked “What’s a good place for those interested in the Hindu tradition to begin their explorations?” The Bhagavad Gita for Modern Times may fit the bill for many seekers.

Dancing with Spirits: Festivals and Folklore of Japan
Denny Sargent, Megalithica, 2010

3/5 Broomsticks

My love affair with Japan started out probably the way most Gen X-er’s did – with animé. But as I got older, I found there was much more to Japanese culture than Speed Racer and Battle of the Planets. So when religious wanderlust started pulling me away from my birth religion, I found that I was just as fascinated with the gods and mythology of old Japan as I had been by their pop culture.
