Manuals of Taoist Practice
Translated by Thomas Cleary. 5" x 7.25", 111 pg, paperback. These ancient Chinese Taoist texts explain the transformative effects sex can have when properly and wisely practiced, demonstrating Taoism's emphasis on cultivating life's "three treasures" - vitality, energy, and spirit - in all the activities of daily life. The texts are part of the famous Mawangdui finds, Han Dynasty tombs that yielded the richest cache of ancient medical manuscripts ever found in China.
