Description
A fun, straightforward, and informative guide that shows you how to bring mindfulness into sex for a bigger, richer, and more present life

A deep spiritual life and an extraordinary sex life are not mutually exclusive. In this keenly personal and unflinchingly frank guide, Jessica Graham teaches readers how to find mindfulness in sex—without losing the fun and adventure.

As Graham offers simple mindfulness tools and techniques for improving your sex life and romantic relationships, she also shares her own powerful personal journey. Once checked out and sexually traumatized, Graham was able to find recovery, joy, and peace in the present moment through mindfulness practices. She weaves together her story with meditations, down-to-earth suggestions, and advice on everything from orgasms to threesomes to dealing with a low sex drive.

Not only a tool kit for creating a rich and deeply satisfying sex life, this fun, explicit, and inclusive book conveys the deeper message of how combining meditation with sex can bring about profound spiritual awakenings.

      • content: "According to Graham, spiritual teacher, writer, filmmaker, and actor, anyone can have good, or at least better, sex through meditation and mindfulness. To that end, the author's first book provides exercises that help readers get in touch with their bodies, focus on their minds, and communicate feelings. Graham tackles the more difficult areas of shame and insecurity and suggests ways to relieve negative feelings. As in other areas of life, finding acceptance in the moment can lead to greater patience with oneself and others. All of which influences a sexual experience. While Graham writes explicitly about the sex experience, this isn't a "how to." Instead, this work presents a spiritual path to finding authentic sexual communication with another person. Recommended."
