“Three cheers for Gina’s Lighter: Living Tantra, which stands out as a beacon among the books written about Tantra these days. Her holistic approach is proven to deeply nourish and open us to releasing, healing and rebalancing in love. Lighter, provides a handbook of useful wisdom for those looking to deepen their spiritual connection to the divine, themselves and each other.” - Robyn Vogel, MA, LMHC, Tantric Intimacy Coach and Couple’s Therapist

“Tantra, often misunderstood, is an ancient system of energy that can be very helpful to understanding life. In her book, Prana offers clarity and quality information and practices for all to live a tantric lifestyle.” - Michael Lee, MA, E-RYT500, Author and Founder, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy

“Lighter: Living Tantra stands out among other books on Tantra as it addresses the transformational experience that takes place when one lives the ‘Tantra lifestyle’. Prana Regina Barrett provides accessible ways to support the reader as they embark on a Tantra path. We appreciate her bold and well-rounded contribution to the field of Tantra. Those curious about Tantra, as well as experienced practitioners are well-advised to add Lighter: Living Tantra to their resource library.” - Steve and Lokita Carter, Founders, Ecstatic Living Institute (and creators of numerous educational Tantra DVDs)

Book Signing Workshop Testimonial

“Thank you so much for sharing your energy yesterday. Just being near you made me feel grounded! Lots of clarity this morning… Got up while the stars were still out and took my dogs for a walk… Started right away with my intention to “slow down and ground”, by slowly and mindfully walking… Was beautiful… Then I sat by my altar and did the 3rd eye meditation… Then you won’t believe this… I heard what I would call “the sound of the Universe”… Hard to explain… I was looking all around me to find its source… Thought my computer itunes turned itself on to Crystal singing bowls… It lasted about 30-60 seconds and I was in a brief trance when it stopped…Thought I would share that with you! Thanks again… It was the kind of workshop that keeps giving long after concluded… I look forward to learning/absorbing/connecting more with you! Namaste” - Eliza Pierce, E-RYT, Yoga Therapist, Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor
