The Sexual Teachings of the White Tigress: Secrets of the Female Taoist Masters Paperback – 1 August 2001
Enhance your purchase
• The first modern guide to White Tigress techniques, the only sexual teachings exclusively for women.
• Reveals for the first time in English the hidden teachings of immortaless Hsi Wang Mu, a White Tigress from 3,000 years ago.
• Provides Western medical correlations to substantiate White Tigress practices.
White Tigress women undertake disciplined sexual and spiritual practices to maintain their beauty and youthfulness, realize their full feminine potential, and achieve immortality. Revealed here for the first time in English are the secrets of the White Tigress that have all but disappeared from the world. Under the guidance of Madame Lin, the matriarch of a distinguished White Tigress lineage still in existence in Taiwan, Hsi Lai was given the privilege to study these practices and record them from a modern perspective so they will be forever preserved.
The vast majority of Taoist texts on alchemy, meditation, and sexuality are directed at male practitioners. The Sexual Teachings of the White Tigress presents traditions that focus on women, traditions that stem from a long line of courtesans and female Taoists. Translations of the ancient teachings from a rare White Tigress manual dating back 3,000 years explain the sexual and spiritual refinement of ching (sexual energy), chi (vital energy), and shen (consciousness)--the Three Treasures of Taoism--the secret to unlocking eternal youthfulness and immortality.

". . . one of the first books detailing how to become a 'White Tigress' and have incredible sex, while becoming more spiritual." ― Diane Wilde, SHE magazine, 06/03

Another important aspect of those incredible teachings is turning three poisons of greed, anger and ignorance into three medicines: charity, compassion and wisdom. If one can achieve it through transformational sexual practices contained here, one can do a lot for oneself, the world and others.
I think that Daoism in this form, although it's quite heterodox, is for that very reason more convincing than many of the mainstream teachings that fill our bookshelves. Daoism became quite conformist - and thus it betrayed its origins... Hsi Lai offers a welcome correction.
To me personally it was the thorough explanation and parallels to modern world that the author explained so professionally. It's amazing how much time and efforts goes to invent something in modern medicine that the Chinese have known for thousands of years! And their methods are still more effective yet simple and healthy.
The way of White Tigress isn't my way however I'd love to practice certain parts of their art.
The author is an amazing writer with the style I'd love to have for myself - easy, relaxed but well-grounded with references to both ancient culture and modern medicine.
The exercises at the end of the book that every woman can do every day is a great bonus and do make the book priceless.
Overall - amazing discovery both theoretical and practical.
