Description

How do you live a life of spiritual awakening as well as outer abundance, inner freedom as well as deep intimacy? How do you serve the world selflessly, yet passionately celebrate your life? The sages of Tantra have known for centuries that when you follow the path of Shakti--the sacred feminine principle personified by the goddesses of yoga--these gifts can manifest spontaneously. Yet most of us, women as well as men, have yet to experience the full potential of our inner feminine energies. When you know these powers for what they are, they heighten your capacity to open spiritually, love more deeply and fearlessly, create with greater mastery, and move through the world with skill and delight. In Awakening Shakti, you will learn how to recognize and invite: Kali, bringer of strength, fierce love, and untamed freedomLakshmi, who confers prosperity and beautySaraswati, for clarity of communication and intuitionRadha, who carries the divine energy of spiritual longingBhuvaneshvari, who creates the space for sacred transformationParvati, to awaken creativity and the capacity to loveWith a wealth of meditations, visualizations, mantras, teachings, and beautifully told stories, Awakening Shakti provides a practical guide for activating the currents of the divine feminine in every aspect of your life.show more

Review quote

"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 engaging storytelling, Kempton offers an authentic, experiential guide to working with eleven goddesses who embody the totality of life's beauty and challenges. I recommend it highly!" --Constantina Rhodes, PhD, author of Invoking Lakshmi: The Goddess of Wealth in Song and Ceremony "The ascent of the Divine Feminine is one of the most important developments in contemporary spirituality. As both a skilled journalist and a gifted teacher, Sally Kempton more than does justice to this significant subject." --Philip Goldberg, author of American Veda: From Emerson and the Beatles to Yoga and Meditationshow more
