Books and Music for the Tantric Soul
In my journey I have turned to an ever growing number of healers and mentors for advice, support, and sometimes hard lessons. Still with all of the external education, there are times when self learning is just the right approach.
As your esoteric practices grow and change, you will find yourself always on the search for new inspiration! Old music feels stale and the same old books you have been reading seem to have a dusty lense. These are some of my favorite artisans of language and sound. I always welcome your suggestions as well!
This book is for those who love the history and art of Tantra. Amongst the wide variety of meditations you will always find words to inpsire you. The Book of Secrets is great to pick up and read for just a few lines or to get lost in the pages of esoteric goodness.
This book is an amazing summary of the magic of alchemy and how to bring it into your life today. Not content to be general and reach as many people as possible, MacCounn is bold in her suggestions and methodology. I haven't been able to keep this on my shelf because I keep giving copies away!

These two masterpieces are for sacred sexuality nerds! If you can ingest all of the technical practices and bring them into your life, you surely won't be disappointed. I always come back to these books in both my personal and professional practices. The author is truly a master of his art.
This collection of teachings is one of the most visually unique and mystical books in my collection. Like The Book of Secrets, the writings of Douglas and Slinger can be brought into your practice as tidbits of information or they can easily capture your attention for hours. The authors keep their text true to the traditions of Tantra. For those who prefer tradition.
This might just be my favorite book on this list. The author refers to this as a guide for the academic practitioner. It is a beautiful blend of researched history, philosophical exploration, and down to earth practice suggestions. For those who seek a rich understanding of Tantra, this book is a must read.
This sweet, straight forward guide is a wonderfully clear introduction to Tantra that is both a great entry point for beginners and refresher for more advanced practitioners. Her writing style is very accessible with anecdotal stories of her own relationship with this age old path.
These are important texts in the history and background of western sacred sexuality. Though they aren't my favorite beacause of some of the images and perspectives, I have to include them in any list of texts that have shaped my practice. Read a few reviews for yourself and get an idea if they are for you!
