The Transformative Power of The Goddesses of Yoga 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. 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 has been studying and teaching the wisdom of yoga for 45 years. A highly regarded teacher of meditation and spiritual philosophy, she writes the popular Yoga Journal column “Wisdom.” Sally teaches retreats, teleclasses and workshops internationally. She resides in Carmel Valley, California. Illustrator Ekabhumi Charles Ellik is a poet, artist, husband, student, and teacher of Classical Tantric Hatha Yoga.

The sages of Tantra taught that when we follow the path of Shakti, the sacred feminine principle personified by the goddesses of yoga, we awaken the full potential of our own inner energies. Kali, teaches Sally Kempton, may be both the most powerful—and misunderstood—goddess of all. Kali—her name means “Black One”—is the original Dark Goddess, whose hidden gift is ecstasy. She brings both fierceness and love, destruction and rebirth—and untamed courage and freedom for those willing to fully comprehend and embrace her many gifts. In this e-book, readers are invited to explore teachings, stories, meditations, prayers, poems, mantras, invocations, and rituals to align with this cosmic force of radical transformation. Program Highlights Kali as the Mirror of Our Own Inner State Kali the Blood Drinker The Two Faces of the Dark Goddess Kali and the Ego Kali’s Fierce Forms Kali’s Role in Spiritual Liberation Contemplation: The Felt Sense of Kali in Your Life The Tantric Kali: Deity of Heroes The Kali Woman: Archetype of Feminine Power, Sexuality, and Force A Kali Asana Practice A Contemplation on Kali’s Audacity The Shadow Kali Kali as the Inner Voice of Destructive Rage Dialoguing with Kali (a guided practice) Kali as the Human Teacher A Visualization Practice for Offering Your Negative Tendencies to Kali’s Fire Unlocking the Hidden Kali Meditation: Kali as the Great Void

Meditation is like a love affair with your innermost self. At times it can be ecstatic and entrancing, other times simple and still—and sometimes you might not even feel its profound effects until later. Now with Meditation for the Love of It, Sally Kempton shares practical secrets to help us turn meditation into an unconditional embrace of the fullness of our experience—on and off the meditation cushion. With the gentle wisdom and compassion of one who understands the nuances of practice, she opens us to the joy of exploring the deep and mysterious inner landscape of the heart, mind, and body. Drawing on her 40 years as a teacher and a fellow meditator, Sally teaches us how we can connect to our inner longings and creative “shakti” energy to allow the transformative gifts and blessings of meditation to unfold. With playfulness and devotion—two key attitudes in sustaining a daily practice—she shares indispensable guidance for this voyage of self-discovery, including: How to tune in to your own “meditation channel,” a bandwidth of tranquillity, energy, and joy Why you don’t need a quiet mind to meditate How the force known as Kundalini can fuel your practice Connecting to your ever-present Inner Beloved to let go of conditioned ideas about yourself and make space for the True Self to come forth Ripening your practice beyond technique into the “sweet mysterious expanse of spontaneous meditation” More than 20 practices for bringing the peace and insight of meditation into your daily life “Remember: what you seek in meditation is your own Beloved, your own inner intelligence, your own Awareness, and your own Truth,” teaches Sally. Meditation for the Love of It points us back to our own intimate heart of hearts, our own deepest experience, and the bliss of existence itself.

The Kundalini energy force that naturally resides in all of us is a sleeping giant of our potential, meant to be cultivated to rise up from our roots to crown a golden canopy atop our heads. To live at our best, feeling satisfied and whole at all times by awakening the Kundalini takes a structured approach. These techniques invite us to bring a deeper sense of awareness into the goings on of the physical body, the mind or mental body and on through the threshold of the subtle body. For some, including myself, even just using these three techniques proves the destination is where you choose to get off, though the path goes as far as you choose to take it. Download your copy NOW!

What is Kundalini Yoga? Kundalini Yoga is the ancient practice of yoga to awaken Shakti or shaktipat. This Kundalini Yoga book teaches the control of prana or pranayama as taught by Sri Swami Sivananda Saraswati for kundalini awakening. "Kundalini is the known as the coiled serpent power or energy dormant at the base of the spine" (at the lowest chakra called the Muladhara). Learning yoga is about more than poses and exercise but meant to lead the genuine truth-seeker to Spiritual Awakening For complete health and fitness, Kundalini Yoga encompasses the eight limbs of yoga which includes asanas, concentration, meditation and Samadhi Your sadhana practiced religiously leads one to become a master over ego and ignorance. Thus, the true practice of yoga is the union of soul and spirit and this should be the first question on the spiritual path: "How May I Come To Know God"? God may go by many names in many religions. But God is not a "man" up in the sky Essentially, all religions state that God is Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent. So it doesn't take a stretch of the imagination to conclude that if God is truly everywhere and everyplace then He must accordingly be within you Intellectually, we may accept this fact but many of us have no idea how to reach the God that may be within us. This is a question that was first positioned ages ago and there are those that have answered the question for themselves and then provided a roadmap for others to find the same. Hence, came the Birth of Yoga. Yoga is the union of soul and Spirit. It is the means to this union and the state of Union. Over the ages have evolved many types and branches of yoga that may be more suited for the individual and yet they are all branches of the same Tree Kundalini Yoga is known as the shakti path to Soul Awakening or Self-Realization. Kundalini is equated with the intelligent female force that governs Mother Nature. The same power that brings the universe into manifestation is the same energy dormant within man that can be tapped into to reunite consciousness tied to the physical form and the ego with the Cosmic Consciousness the soul Awakens to in the deepest samadhi Through continued practice it will lead one to liberation from attachment to the physical body. It is a proven system for realizing one's spiritual destiny. Sincere and regular effort is required of any yoga path but they all lead to true happiness, inner peace and the dynamic joy of the soul.

Winner of the 2017 Nautilus Gold Book Award! The wisdom of the Mahavidyas, the ten wisdom goddesses who represent the interconnected darkness and light within all of us, has been steeped in esoteric and mystical descriptions that made them seem irrelevant to ordinary life. But with this book, written by a respected cardiologist who found herself on a spiritual search for the highest truth, you’re invited to explore this ancient knowledge and learn how it can be applied to daily struggles and triumphs—and how it can help you find unreserved self-love and acceptance. The pursuit of contentment is an innate part of the human experience, arising from a fundamental sense of lack or inadequacy—all the things we believe to be wrong with us when we compare or judge ourselves. In our search for peace and happiness, we may find ourselves fighting the shadows within us, trying to repress or disown certain qualities, especially our anger, violence, discomfort, craving, and disappointment. But in order to stop this fight, we must expand our understanding beyond the dualities of good versus bad, right versus wrong, and beautiful versus ugly, and accept the parts of ourselves we’ve tried to deny. Pulling from Eastern traditions including tantra and yoga, and focusing on the feminine principle of divine energy also known as Shakti, this book bridges the divide between dualistic concepts and non-dual philosophy. By exploring the symbolism of the Mahavidyas (Kali, Tara, Tripurasundari, Bhuvaneshwari, Tripura Bhairavi, Chinnamasta, Dhumavati, Baglamukhi, Matangi, and Kamalatmika)—each with a veiled face representing a destructive quality that perpetuates ignorance and suffering, and a true face representing the wisdom that stimulates profound transformation and liberation—you’ll learn to embrace and incorporate every aspect of who you are. With practices, self-inquiry prompts, and stories from the author’s own spiritual seeking, this exploration of the divine feminine will gently reveal the source of your fear, pain, and suffering, showing you that when you allow those parts of yourself to arise and simply be, you can finally begin to heal, overcome your limitations, and open to the light and beauty of your true nature.

Presents the mystery of the Divine Mother in all her manifold aspects • Explores more than 30 different goddess aspects of the Shakti force, both beneficial and malefic • Includes Sanskrit hymns and classic verses by Sri Auribindo for each of the goddesses Shakti is synonymous with the Devi, the Divine Mother or divine power that manifests, sustains, and transforms the universe. She is the womb of all creatures, and it is through her that the One becomes the many. Our first and primary relationship to the world is through the mother, the source of love, security, and nourishment. Extending this relationship to worship of a cosmic being as mother was a natural step found not only in the Shakti cult of Hinduism but also in ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Babylonian cultures. Shakti presents more than 30 goddess incarnations of the Divine Mother that represent both the beneficial and malefic aspects of the Shakti force. From Lakshmi, Parvati, and Saraswati to Durga, Chandika, and Kali--each of the different functions of the female goddesses in the Hindu pantheon is revealed, accompanied by traditional Sanskrit hymns, classic verses by Sri Auribindo, and discussions of tantric philosophy. The author draws from the Devi Bhagavatham, which describes all the stories of Shakti, and the Devi Mahatmyam, the most powerful scriptural text that glorifies Shakti in her form as Durga. Using these texts she shows that through the power and grace of the Divine Mother we may be released from the darkness of ignorance and taken to the abode of knowledge, immortality, and bliss--the source from which we have come.
