The Complete Yoga of Emotional-Sexual Life

The Way Beyond Ego-Based Sexuality

  • customer reviews
The core practices of the emotionally and sexually balanced teachings on love, intimacy, and sexual relationships from the Realized Master Avatar Adi Da Samraj

• Teaches how to overcome the emotional patterning that hinders healthy sexual relationships

• Presents a solitary yogic discipline to restore the bipolar integrity of the individual

• Shows how to entirely transcend emotional-sexual patterns

In all the domains of human life, we now understand the need for an integration of body, mind, and spirit. But despite this comprehension of the holistic nature of existence, much of the teaching offered on sexuality--even sacred sexuality--concentrates on the physical practice, to the detriment of emotional intimacy. Avatar Adi Da Samraj explains that our emotional-sexual life can only be made right through the process of restoring the bipolar balance of the body, and by transcending the ego, the illusory sense of separate existence.

He advocates that sexual practice initially become a solitary yogic discipline--an embracing and reclaiming of one’s own body--to restore the bipolar integrity that is at the core of every human being. Once this bipolar integrity is established, he shows how a sexual practice of true intimacy--free of clinging attachment--is possible. He also teaches that an unconscious, early childhood reaction to the mother and father governs the emotional-sexual life, a reaction that must be understood and transcended. The emotional-sexual practices taught by Avatar Adi Da are centered in the understanding that love breaks the heart and show that learning how to have intimacy without ego-based attachment is where profound practice begins.

FROM PART 1

The Addiction Affliction


There is a tradition saying that “through suffering comes wisdom”. This notion is a principal idea conveyed in the ancient Greek tragedies, for example. I have pointed out to you, however, that suffering does not in itself “create” wisdom, nor is suffering necessarily followed by wisdom. Suffering is just suffering. Whether or not you learn from it depends entirely upon your character, or your orientation to the events of life. Some people suffer a little and learn a great deal. Some people suffer greatly and learn a great deal. Some people, whether they suffer little... see more
