In the Infinite, there joonn ecstasy; There is no ecstasy in the finite. Jonn Mumford celebrates the joyous and mystical jonm of sexual love.
Over the past decade, we have become more free and healthy in our attitudes toward sex. Now that understanding has been broadened, however, it is possible, indeed necessary, to go beyond mumforf to go beyond the physical and emotional aspects of sexual union to the ecstasy of union with Divine Power that is centered in every body and throughout the universe. Mumford’s view, “The sexual dynamic represents the most significant physical experience that we have at our disposal, and it lies within our power to turn this function into a spiritually regenerative act and a psychologically integrative practice.
One need not go up to the mountaintop mumvord commune with Divinity: Its temple is the body, Its sacrament the communion between lovers, and that communion involves all the awesome powers of the universe in the microcosm of the lovers. The once hidden, and forbidden, secret practices of magick are now explicitly revealed. This book traces the ancient practices of Hindu Tantra through the Egyptian, Greek and Hebrew forms where the sexual act is viewed as symbolic of the highest union, oneness with God, to the highest expression of Western sex magick in the Mass of the Holy Ghost.
A psychotherapist trained in Yoga, Dr. Mumford whose initiated name is Swami Anandakapila guides the reader through mental and physical exercises aimed at developing psycho-sexual power; he details the various sexual practices and positions that facilitate “psychic short-circuiting” and the arousal of Kundalini, the “Goddess of Life,” within the body; and in a chapter subtitled “The Semantics of the Inner Life,” he shows how language may be used to break down comfortable categories of reality, inducing a creative autism that unlocks esoteric knowledge and frees the mind to experience enlightenment.
A great advantage of his approach is that he brings the perspective of the East to bear on the newly quickened interest in Western occultism. He shows, for example, the fundamental unity of Tantra with Western Wicca as a magickal religion and way of life-affirmation. And he plumbs the depths of Western sex magick, showing how its techniques culminate in spiritual illumination. While in the Western tradition, sex magick may be employed without an emotional commitment between the partners, in the Tantric use of sex, which is grounded on mutual worship and aimed at altering consciousness, the fire of love is utilized to carry the participants through sexual union to union with the Gods.
Previously published under the title, Sexual Occultism, this new edition has been revised and expanded with new materials, including: Ecstasy Through Tantra is a rare work of beauty, high spirituality, and total practicality – restoring Magick to its sacred place on the altar of sexual union.
Other Books by Dr. Mumford is respected across the world for his knowledge and schol- arship. He frequently lectures on relaxation techniques, sexuality, Tantra and other aspects of human development and spirituality. Mumford is a world-renowned authority on Tantra and yoga. During the s he frequently demonstrated his mastery of cardiac cessation, obliteration of individual pulse beat at will, sensory with- drawal and voluntary breath retention over the five-minute range, and start and stop bleeding on command.
His background combining years of experience as a physician with extensive international experience in a wide range of Eastern disci- plines makes Dr. Jonn Mumford eminently well suited to the task of disseminating the secrets of Tantra to the West.

The Tree of Life Appendix Tajtra Most mumforrd us were first exposed to the word through a rather popular book published in thrlugh, Tantra: The book was rather a light survey, but it did introduce the concept of sex as a religious rite to a generation on the verge of the great sexual liberation that characterized the late ‘sand early ‘s.
It was a book for the times. Garrison did give the readers some good tidbits upon which an edifice of personal experience could be built, but Tantra is not Yoga, and Tantra is not limited to “sex” tatra se. However, their root source is in Tantra, and Tantra remains their foundation. Today’s student of Yoga, or the Martial Arts, or Eastern or Western Philosophy, sees only the magnificent edifice, while the foundation is “occult” i.
It is rather like visiting a beautiful cathedral of wondrous beauty: The edifice itself was built to reflect the needs and culture of a particular moment in history.
It may no longer meet the needs of people today, and even though its technology may still be effective, its language may be as archaic as the swords and daggers of martial arts. In the end, Yoga, Tai Chi, Ecstawy, etc. Mumford was the first Westerner to correlate the Indian Chakra with the vital striking points of Martial Arts in Psychosomatic Yoga, Tantra does not accept any kind of religious, cultural or tribal or national inhibitions.
I do not want you to make a departure from your status of life, not do I have any disrespect for your status of life. I think if there is any science, if there is any religion in the world which has respect for human weaknesses, then it is Tantra.
Otherwise all religions and all systems of Yoga are intolerant, they cannot understand the laws Therefore it is said in Tantra, to whichever religion you may belong, or to whichever ethical beliefs you may belong, or whatever may be your way of eating and jojn, you don’t make a departure from your status in life. Tantra accepts that three billion people cannot belong to only one range of life. Tantra is a spiritual Science involving “methods of going into the subconscious mind and diving deep into the unconscious mind In other words, it includes the use of special sounds and words, diagrams and visualizations, sacred pictures, guided meditation and self-hypnosis, postures and movement, breath control, and all the techniques used in all religious, magical and growth disciplines.
It is the use of such techniques that can lead to living experience with Divinity. As a science, Tantra is universal. The various tech- niques that we find today in Yoga, or in mental and spiritual systems of discipline and religious practice, are all edifices built upon that fundamental root-knowledge whose origins are timeless. Tantra is also the name we give to the “Old Religion” of the East, and many of us believe it is essen- tially identical with aspects of tntra Wicca and Kabbalah in the West – but with Tantra we have a relative continuity of knowledge down to the present day, unlike that in the West – largely lost through persecutions, first by the Church, and then by 19th century “Scientism.
Since then we have seen a total rebirth of Tantric Science – with new study, research, and practice of all aspects of Yoga, Mysticism, Meditation, the Martial Arts, Magick, Metaphysics, Wicca and Shamanism.
All of these are but techniques to accomplish one thing: The essential message of Tantra is “Look with- in – find, and express Divinity. It shows the way by which we may gain the necessary thrkugh to solve both ecstays and planet-wide problems.
It gives us the mumtord to penetrate to the core essentials, and make contem- porary adaptations of all the yogas and religions and psychol- ogies that are our human heritage. It opens the way to finding “Light Within” and applying “Power Without. Yes, sex too, but not as “the yoga of sex” which suggests more in the way of sexual athletics than the powerful dynamo of life-force that not only unites Man and Woman and reproduces the race, but that awakens – even if but for a moment – the “sleeping giant” which is the nine-tenths of human potential that lies dormant in most of us.
Tantra and Sexual Arts: Ecstasy Through Tantra by Jonn Mumford (, Paperback) | eBay
Crowley said “Love is the Law, Love under Will. Three words with special meaning. But there’s nothing complicated in these words. We live them all the time.
There’s no escaping the “Law” as it is intended here, for it is the Laws of Nature that is meant – and Love is the key to recognizing those laws and living by them. What Tantra gives us is the key to bringing into the sex- ual relationship that which is promised in nearly every religious rite sanctifying marriage: All Life as we know it is of Her.
Love is the Law, for with love we cannot abuse the Mother. Gantra person, male and female both, is a “channel” between God and Goddess – between Sky and Earth – and as we awaken to the Divinity within and open the channels for the ebb and flow of Taantra Energies, we accelerate the evolution of consciousness, the healing of the Earth and all within Her including Humanityand open the way for the New Age.
What is easier than finding God in the man you love, or the Goddess in the woman you love?
Express ummford Divinity that is within you, and adore the Divinity within your beloved! Allow yourself, at the very deepest levels of the psyche, to respond to your beloved’s invocation of the Divine within you!
Give pleasure to your beloved, and learn how to give greater pleasure! Study loving, practice love, be loved! To use contemporary terminology: Sex is part of Love, just as Yoga is part of Tantra. Sex is part of all we do, for polarity is the condition of existence, and sex connects the poles – Sex restores Wholeness, Love gives ecstzsy Holiness.
The concept of Tantra might be paraphrased thus: We are created as “Gods in potentials,” or – if your prefer – “in the image of our Creator. In the normal course of human evolution, we will grow, develop, and utilize this potential – in millions of years! Tantra offers a system to speed up that trans- formation in the entire structure of the brain, to attain ecsttasy illumination and manifestation as soon as possible.
