Beyond Tantra is a Western introduction to the world of Sacred Sexuality. Unlike many of the existing Tantric and Taoist books and workshops that do not provide information on how to easily incorporate their traditions into normal lives, this handbook is a practical, down-to-earth guide designed to make Sacred Sex techniques accessible to every woman and man. Starting with an overview of some of the many ancient traditions that have used sexual energy as a method of healing and spiritual development, Beyond Tantra provides practical information on how to begin exploring these methods both as an individual and within a relationship. The book is interspersed with real, often humorous, stories from the authors' own journey and their personal discoveries in this field.

He and his Flemish wife Mieke, a reflexologist and Reiki master, have been married for 27 years and have four grown children. Using Taoist and Tantric Sexual healing and transformation techniques they worked together many years ago to heal Mieke from a serious illness. This encouraged them to research and practically test many of the techniques that, in the West, are now grouped under the heading 'Sacred Sexuality'.
