Tantra Song Book Review:

A collection of rare, abstract Tantra drawings. These contemporary, anonymous drawings from Rajasthan are unlike the more familiar strands of Tantric art - the geometric yantras, or erotic illustrations of the Kama Sutra. The drawings are designed to awaken heightened states of consciousness and are imbued with specific spiritual meanings (e.g. spirals and arrows for energy, an inverted triangle for Shakti). Tantra song is a convergence of east and west, the spiritual and the aesthetic, the ancient and the modern

She said, 'Look, blood is flowing, you dip your finger in it, you sense the syllables as they pass, skull then arm then finally hand, listen: yes, the eye sees, but most of all it illuminates, it is light as much as daylight is.' The world, unforgivable." Jamme is also the editor of Rene Char's complete works and an independent art curator.

The Tantra Experience Book Review:

In these discourses, Osho offers penetrating insights into previously insoluble paradoxes of life. He reveals how Tantric experience will free us from the destructive Hebraic-Christian dualism that has crippled our bodies, minds and hearts and condemned as evil almost everything we do. With the author as a guide, this book gives readers a new perspective, a new way of looking at themselves and at life and of living in harmony with existence.

Another Silent Attack Book Review:

Poetry. Translated from the French by Michael Tweed. Each of these seven prose poems ends with a gridlike block of capital letters, a phrase that looks back at its source, the text that precedes it. Looking back, in the form of the past tense, and the problem of navigating the miscellany that is pulled from the past, seem to be important throughout this book. "Some sentences had, behind them, hidden, peacocks." The grid of language is at once organized into sentences, questions and dialogue, and also difficult to see, because everything is there. "Everything existed. Even speech." French poet Franck Andre Jamme is the author of thirteen books of poetry since 1981, and in 2005 was awarded the Grand Prix de Poesie de la Societe des Gens de Letres for his life's work. Translator Michael Tweed is a writer as well as a visual artist.

Tantric Transformation Book Review:

In the 'Tantric Transformation' we are introduced to the sacred and ancient tradition of Tantra by a contemporary Tantric master, Osho. We are given a detailed map of Tantra: inner man, inner woman; the meeting of man and woman; the transformation of energy through sex, love and meditation. Based on the Royal Song of Saraha, we are not just introduced to an Asian sex tradition but with Osho we enter the higher levels of transformation. Here we find Tantra as a door to freedom: freedom from all mind-constructs, mind games; freedom from all structures and freedom from the other. Love and meditation merge and provide a path to liberation.'Tantric Transformation' is a very alive, concrete book for exploration of our own energy, of our own inner space. You don't just read Osho, you undefine yourself.

Shake Your Soul Song Book Review:

We live in a culture that teaches us to both fear and ignore our sexuality, and repress our sensuality. Women are largely uneducated about their full pleasure-potential, and are discouraged from exploring their own unique style of healthy sensual expression. Shake Your Soul-Song presents the idea of using pleasure as a path to self-empowerment and soul connection. By using the methodology of The 4 Principles of Self-Pleasure, each woman will more deeply understand her relationship to The 4 Forms of Pleasure, and how to use them for accessing more of her personal & spiritual potential. Each of The 4 Principles of Self-Pleasure uses practical and fun tools designed to effectively connect, heal, awaken, & transform every woman's heart, body, mind & soul. Shake Your Soul-Song includes authentic and soulful insight into: * Creating a New "Pleasure Paradigm" with The 4 Principles of Self-Pleasure * The 4 Forms of Pleasure and how to use them for accessing more of your personal potential * The difference between sensuality & sexuality * Gratification vs. Pleasure * How cultivating conscious sense-uality can help you experience more presence, passion & connection in all areas of your life * How the Walt Disney Syndrome keeps us disempowered as women & contributes to relational dysfunction between partners * Ancient, powerful tools for transforming your life-experience on a cellular level * The Secret to Sensual Sovereignty * The 11 different orgasms for women, what they are and how to activate them for more passion, pleasure, and soul expression.

The book answers the question what Self-realization is and which stages lie before and beyond. It contributes to the field of such books by focusing on lovebliss and the spiritual energy of the Self (Shakti), rather than simply pure being or the now. It is written solely from experience. Further it contributes by putting the insights of the first two thirds of the book into perspective with new readable translations (from Sanskrit with commentaries) of Yoga-S

Yoga Spandakarika Book Review:

Translation and commentary of one of the most important texts of the Kashmirian Shivaism tradition of Tantra • Author was a student of the late Kalu Rinpoche • Explores the transmission of Mahamudra, the Great Cosmic Gesture • Includes the Vijnanabhaïrava Tantra, which contains the totality of the oldest source text on Yoga The Spandakarika, the "Tantric Song of the Divine Pulsation," is said to have been transmitted directly to the sage Vasugupta from the hands of Shiva on Mount Kailas. In his commentary on these fifty-two stanzas, the sage Ksemaraja described them as the heart of the Mahamudra. The oldest masters of Spandakarika viewed everything in the universe, including matter, as consciousness and created a yoga practice in accordance with this realization. The sacred dance of Yoga Spandakarika, Tandava, is extremely subtle and difficult, requiring thousands of hours of practice to master, yet it surpasses any other physical practice, allowing the practitioner to touch the divine inner pulse. Once its third stage has been mastered, the yogi or yogini is able to manifest the dance of Shiva in space, a tradition visible in the statuary of Tantric temples in India and Tibet. Energy is no longer contracted by the perception of duality, and the mind and body become unbounded, forming a sphere that contains all that was formerly outside. In Yoga Spandakarika Daniel Odier passes on these vanishing teachings as he received them from his Tibetan master, Kalu Rinpoche, and Kashmiri yogi Lalita Devi.

Factual Nonsense Book Review:

Joshua's gallery 'Factual Nonsense' was quite unlike any other. Called a 'crazy powerhouse of ideas' it was a kind of cultural think-tank located in the then run-down East End area known as Shoreditch, which would later become a cohesive and creative hub (since rebranded as 'Silicon Roundabout'). Joshua was the driving force that turned the area's fortune and reputation around. Under the auspices of his Factual Nonsense banner, he held some of the most important and influential public art events of the late 20th Century. The first of these was an anarchic swipe at the notion of a traditional village fete called 'A Fete Worse than Death', with some of the biggest but the still yet unknown stars of the art world, including Damien Hirst and Angus Fairhurst, famously dressed as clowns and produced the first spin paintings at the Fete (for sale for the princely sum of £1). Whilst Hirst's spin machine has, from lowly beginnings at the Fete, gone on to appear recently at the World Economic Forum, a billionaire's playground, creating spin paintings for rich oligarch's wives as entertainment, Joshua was to die alone, poverty stricken back in 1996 on the cusp of international fame. Never reaping the rewards that were to come from the economic upturn and Charles Saatchi's Sensation exhibition, his death was a marker for the beginning of an era of international fame and success for his contemporaries and the end of the 'classic' avant-garde. The list of the seventy or so names of people I have interviewed for the book over the past year reads like a who's who of the contemporary art world, with contributions from the likes of Jay Jopling, Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, Sam Taylor-Wood, Gary Hume, Gavin Turk, Maureen Paley and Sir Peter Blake. Although Joshua never achieved the recognition that he deserved in his lifetime, he was a pivotal figure in the London art scene during the early 1990's. Josh moved into Hoxton and opened a gallery there and started a veritable art movement, while the place was a neglected London backwater. His lasting legacy was to bring together a group of artists and gallerists and create what is now known as the YBA scene. The text is illustrated with previously unseen photographs, letters and extracts from Joshua's diaries, which give insight into his thought process as well as the deterioration of his mental state towards the end of his brief but eventful life.
