Last week I was patting myself on the back for having finished B.K. Frantzis' The Great Stillness, the Water Method of Taoist Meditation. In this book, Mr. Frantzis presents all the positions that a person might find themselves in, and still be able to meditate in the Taoist water method.
These positions are: sitting, lying down, standing, walking, and during sex. For each, he offers some preparatory exercises and specific methods for meditating in those situations.
Now, about the "during sex" part. I'm no prude, but before I read the book, the idea seemed a little, well, unspiritual. But Frantzis deals with this issue in a matter-of-fact, tasteful, and helpful way. I did not feel a bit squeamish or put off. Rather, his point is that no matter what we are doing, we can still meditate. That seems like a whole new level of spirituality to me.
For that reason, I recommend this book.
