Purchased for 20c (one of a box of about 50 books for $10) at a garage sale. Not something I'm interested in myself but bought purposely just for giving away at Little Free Libraries and for Bookcrossing.
I was somewhat disturbed by the apparent melding of the Star Of David and the swastika in the emblem on the cover, but I imagine the swastika is used in its original sense as a sacred symbol of spiritual principles in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. And I see it gets an average rating of 4.6 stars out of 5 (11 reviews) on GoodReads, so I must be reasonably good in the minds of its readers.
From the back cover:
"The human being is linked by his/her receptors, the senses, to the infinite which surrounds and composes him/her. By developing one's sensuality, one develops one's capacity to feel connected with the infinite, to feel infinite oneself.
Sensual Meditation is the "instruction manual" given to us to teach us how to master the harmonizing possibilities within the brain, by those best placed to know, those who designed the human being. Allowing one to deprogram the Judeo-Christian inhibitions of guilt, while at the same time not falling into the ethereal mysticisms of the Eastern teachings, Sensual Meditation allows the human to discover his/her body and especially to learn how to use it to enjoy sounds, colors, smells, tastes, caresses, and particularly a sexuality felt with all one's senses, so as to experience the cosmic orgasm, infinite and absolute, which illuminates the mind by linking the one who reaches it with the universes he/she is composed of and composes."
