Jean-Claude Carvill was born in Lyon, France. He is a Beverly Hills sensuality intimacy coach with over 20 years of professional experience. He is also a dedicated tantra masseur, and, since 1980, when he gave his first tantra massage, he managed to help hundreds of women to get in touch with their sexuality and become more aware of their bodies. Coming from France, Jean-Claude grew up in a more liberal and free-spirited society and had the chance to understand the importance of one's sensuality in one's life. Wanting to help women experience fulfilled intimate lives, he has traveled through the Middle East, India, Southeast Asia, and Australia in order to learn the secret techniques of tantric massage. His activity grew through word of mouth marketing and found its main life within circles of women who have a genuine desire for the growth and discovery of their sexual fulfillment. His goal is to help them with their journey to better sex, better lives, and enhanced self-esteem. As an intimacy coach, Jean-Claude Carvill gives seminars on the awareness of female sexuality but also coaches individual women who find themselves in difficult spots in their relationships. Most often women who come to Jean-Claude Carvill for sensuality coaching find it difficult to reach orgasm during intercourse. They feel that they can't open themselves intimately toward their partners, or they are already extremely orgasmic but wish to know if there is something more than they already know. Through moral support and tantric techniques, Jean-Claude Carvill helps these women overcome their fears, become more aware of their bodies and their needs, and have a more satisfying relationships with their partners. Jean-Claude Carvill conducts seminars in Los Angeles occasionally. Jean-Claude has also conducted intimate gatherings for women throughout Australia, Bali, France, Beverly Hills, Chicago, and Atlanta. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lily Horne.

Discover why Buddhism is such an astonishingly lively and adaptable religion with this series. In just 12 accessible lectures, you'll learn how Buddhism transformed the civilizations of India and much of Asia, and has now become a vital part of Western culture. Buddhism's core philosophy, as you'll learn, is that nothing is permanent - all is change. With this in mind, you'll plunge into an introductory look at this faith. You'll unpack the Buddhist idea that all of life is "suffering" and that there is no permanent self. You'll learn about the life story of the Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, his teaching (Dharma), and his community of disciples (Samgha). You'll also gain a clear understanding of key Buddhist terms such as nirvana, tantra, mandala, bodhisattva, and Zen; survey the lives of contemporary, well-known Buddhists such as the Dalai Lama; and examine Buddhist responses to some of the fundamental problems of life-responses that share some surprising similarities and differences with those of other faiths such as Christianity or Islam. These lectures are a chance for you to travel around the world and back in time, surveying Buddhism from its origin in India in the 6th or 5th centuries B.C.E. to the present day. It's a 2,500-year history that will give you a fascinating window into how a faith can grow from a tiny religious community into a movement that spans the globe.

This book offers a variety of scholarly studies in the idea, situation, and definition-including the self-definition-of women in India, from the earliest historical period up to the present day. Both in its range of topics and depth of research, this volume creates a sustained focus that isnot presently available in the literature of women in India.Faces of the Feminine in Ancient, Medieval, and Modern India comprises 25 essays contributed by a diverse mix of Indian, Canadian, American, and British women scholars, most of whom have lived in South Asia either for all of their lives or for extended periods. Arranged chronologically, thesegroundbreaking essays set aside the myths and prejudices that often clutter discussions about women in India. Part I, which is dedicated to the ancient period, defines women's positions as depicted in the sacred law, considers subordinated women in major Hindu epics, describes women's roles inritual and their understanding of religion, and examines the patriarchal organization of women's lives in Buddhism. Part II begins with an essay on Tantra, a major force in medieval India that influenced both Hinduism and Buddhism and placed women at the center of its sacred rites. Other essays inPart II look at the life and legends of a medieval woman saint poet, the portrayal of a Hindu goddess in medieval Bengal, and the role of women from Mughal harems in decision making. Part III describes the colonial perception of Indian women in the late nineteenth century and shows how women'sself-perceptions have been expressed through their art and writing as well as through their political action in the twentieth century.Providing informed andbalanced analysis of extensive primary source material, this book will be an essential resource for students of women's lives in India.
