"Dr. Barratt is an intellectual giant and spiritual dedicate who advances tantric practice for westerners, even while debunking some of the myths that have accumulated around its popularization. This wonderful book is a lofty endeavor to make sense of the immeasurably deep and subtle truths that define genuine tantric practice."

“Wow! This is such a cool book. Barnaby pulls together and integrates the spiritual essence of tantra, without avoiding its erotic nature. This book explains the common features of authentic tantric practice, drawing from Indian and Tibetan spiritual teachings as well as other related traditions. I would recommend What is Tantric Practice? to anyone curious about tantra, as well as to those who have already experienced some of the benefits of its sacred journey. This book gets two thumbs up!"
