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 freedom
- Lakshmi, who confers prosperity and beauty
- Saraswati, for clarity of communication and intuition
- Radha, who carries the divine energy of spiritual longing
- Bhuvaneshvari, who creates the space for sacred transformation
- Parvati, to awaken creativity and the capacity to love
With 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.
“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, cofounder of the Omega Institute, author of Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow

Review for Awakening Shakti Review by Phil Kenney
Sally Kempton's new book, "Awakening Shakti," is a spiritual gem. Because Sally is a gifted writer and her devotion to the Divine so strong, this work shines with the dynamic energy she describes so well. What I particularly love about Sally's writing is the richness of the language. Her sentences are juicy and actually sensual, giving the reader an actual experience of the abundant Shakti she so openly adores. What this creates is a union between the transcendent and the personal, between spaciousness and intimacy.
As a psychotherapist, what I value so much in these pages is the inclusion of material that is psychologically sophisticated and emotionally nuanced. Sally isn't afraid of the deepest, darkest feelings and neither are the Goddesses who embody all the elements of our experience. By elaborating on the likes of Kali and Lalita, Sally gives us the delicious, esoteric myths of these Tantric Icons in a way that allows each of us to recognize them in everyday life.
There is more!. Again and again, Sally brings us back to practice. She invites us to engage the energies of the Divine Feminine. And the practices she offers are profound ventures into the heart of this mysterious presence we call Shakti. Once again, we find a true yoga which unites the ancient traditions of the East with more contemporary ways of deepening our experience so that we may more fully receive the bounties of the Goddess's offerings.
This book is a must read for women, and men alike, who wish to partake of a grand, adventurous voyage into the mythology and vastly inclusive spirituality of the Tantric Feminine. Enjoy. (Posted on February 24, 2013)
Review for Awakening Shakti Review by Nancy
This is more than a book , it is a gateway into experiencing the Shakti through the Indian goddesses examined in the book.
Sally has always been my favorite teacher and this book gives the world her teachings. She is able to explain complex subjects so the average person can understand them and she gives you tasks to do which will enable you to enter into the experience she talks about. (Posted on February 21, 2013)
