Review quote

"Sally Kempton's new book is a treasure that brings myth, meditation, and everyday revelation together in a way that will allow every woman to embody the divine feminine in her life. Sally enlivens the full spectrum of the goddess-from independent protector, to lover, to dynamic and powerful creatrix. I highly recommend this soon-to-be classic!" -Shiva Rea, Yogini "Sally Kempton has given us a mythic manual for a new kind of feminism-a feminism of the soul. And this is a good thing, because humanity needs feminine power now as both a healing tonic and a source of reinvention." -Elizabeth Lesser, Co-founder of Omega Institute, author of Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow "Feminine energy is now rising all over the planet, and "Awakening Shakti" shows everyone - both men and women-both how to participate in and benefit from the truly healing power of Goddess energy." -Christiane Northrup, MD, author of the "New York Times "bestsellers "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom "and "The Wisdom of Menopause" ""Awakening Shakti "is a magnificent contribution to the essential movement of our time-the return of the Divine Feminine in all her passionate glory. Kempton's book is not only a completely lucid and deeply felt exploration of the different facets of the Hindu vision of the Goddess; it is also as down-home as it is exalted, and as practical as it is ecstatic. I cannot recommend this book highly enough." -Andrew Harvey, author of "Return of the Mother "and "Radical Passion" "Rekindling knowledge and worship of the Divine Feminine may be the most important thing we can do to balance our fractured civilization. This book brings the Goddess alive in her many important forms. Well-researched, sparkling with stories, as well as practical applications, this book is your Bible to the Hindu Goddesses." -Anodea Judith, author of "Creating on Purpose "and "Wheels of Life" """With her signature combination of sound research, personal experience, and engag
