The Extraordinary Awakening of Annabel Jones

The tantra subject is - well, who doesn’t wonder about Tantra who hasn’t experienced it? I wondered. The book speaks to my every curiosity, and more. The sacred work of Tantra is beyond what I’d imagined. A certain Tantra session for the healing of sexual wounding brought me to tears.
— Constance Walsh

And this is the novel ...

When Annabel moves to Vienna to live with a handsome prince in his palace, she believes she has found true love.  Instead, tragedy turns her fairytale into a nightmare.  

When a simple eye operation changes how she sees the world, she takes a courageous stand and confronts her greatest fear: sexuality.  Her search within herself reveals Austria's true part in the Holocaust, the pioneering work of the maverick psychiatrist Wilhelm Reich, and intimately explores one of the world's most misunderstood yogic philosophies:  Tantra.  

The hidden tradition of Tantra, which teaches a woman that sex is sacred not profane, draws Annabel out of darkness into light and then sets her on the true path of love.   

 

 

  

Read this book for a deeper understanding of tantric practice, appreciate it for the love, healing, and deep forgiveness it provides. Superb story, deeper truths.

A damned good book, well-written and engaging. It’s written with a real insight into human nature through the eyes of tantric therapy. I personally found it to be a therapeutic read and will no doubt read it again.
