Publisher's Synopsis

Jing energy is creative, generative energy that is vital for the development of chi (vital life-force energy) and shen (spiritual energy), which enables higher practices of spiritual development. Jing is produced in the sexual organs, and it is energy women lose continually through menstruation and child bearing.

Mantak Chia teaches powerful techniques developed by Taoist masters for the conservation of jing and how it is used to revitalize women's physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Among the many benefits conferred by these practices are a reduction in the discomfort caused by menstruation and the ability to attain full-body orgasm.

There are two main practices that the authors teach women to cultivate and enhance their sexual energy. One is Ovarian Breathing which can shorten menstruation, reduce cramps and compress more life force energy (CHI) into the ovaries for more sexual power. Another, the Orgasmic Upward Draw can be done solo or with one's sexual partner. When this practice is mastered one can experience a total body orgasm that is beyond ordinary vaginal orgasm without loosing life-force energy.

There are two other preparatory exercises taught by the Chias. They are a series of exercises with an egg of wood or stone, which is used to strengthen the urogenital and pelvic diaphragm, the glands, tendons and nervous systems. These exercises lend themselves to titters by the uninformed but in fact have been successfully practiced for thousands of years to enhance the potency and pleasure of the woman fortunate enough to know about them.


"Chia's books contain a wealth of authentic teachings and original synthesis, incorporating Western science, Tantric concepts, and the author's own experience. They are the richest documents for researching the continuity of Chinese sexual practices in the modern era and for the process of their acculturation in the West.

The detail of his discussion of genital calisthenics simply has no parallel in the published traditional texts and marks the debut of large quantities of oral transmission in print."          ~Douglas Wile, Art of the Bedchamber


Man-on-Top Position

"This is the most common of the lovemaking positions. The woman lies on her back with her legs spread. She may have a pillow under her buttocks to raise her pelvis. The man lies flat on top of the woman or supports some or all of his weight on his elbows, hands, or knees. Remember the Taoist theory that men are like fire and women are like water: Fire is easy to light or is activated faster and burns easily, as most men usually become active sexually initially and seem aggressive.

A woman, like water, may be passive in the beginning and usually needs to be moved to lovemaking by a man. So in the beginning of lovemaking, it is beneficial for the woman to lie on her back and the man to use foreplay to bring the woman to the boiling point. Once a woman is active and aroused, she should also play an active, or aggressive, part by kissing him, playing with his tongue and ears, and holding and massaging his penis. All these activities will create a sense of harmony.

Ordinarily the couple will start with the man-on-top position, and then continue with other positions, most likely ending up in the man-on-top position again."


A student of several Taoist masters, Mantak Chia founded the Healing Tao System in North America in 1979 and developed it worldwide as European Tao Yoga and Universal Healing Tao. He has taught and certified tens of thousands of students and instructors from all over the world and tours the United States annually, giving workshops and lectures.
