I like how the author starts out by telling the story of how she discovered the exercise and when it started to work for her, giving examples along the way. The author then takes you step by step how to do the exercise and has you ask yourself questions to help you along. She then goes on to describe some of the most common demons. This is just a wonderful book. I am thrilled that I got this book in hardcover so can last for years to come.
It will be helpful to understand the practice of meditation and to have a basic education in the three turnings of the wheel of dharma. As with all disciplines, the more invested and educated the practitioner can become, the greater the rewards.
The story of Tsultrim Allione's life and her research into female Buddhists is inspiring. As Buddhist practice is established through lineage, her work has deep significance for women interested in developing a spiritual connection to their wise mother ancestors.
