With clear instruction, Allione explains breathing techniques and meditation and shares numerous inspirational anecdotes from her own life and from the many holy people she met and prayed with.”, Publishers Weekly
"In this magnificent teaching memoir, Lama Tsultrim writes: 'We must learn to leave something when we take something.'

This book made me realize how undervalued the feminine perception has been and how women can contribute their uniqueness substantially more than they currently are to the institutions of the culture. -- Ram Dass, author of Be Here Now

Lama Tsultrim Allione uses life stories, her own and others, to demonstrate that this potency is alive in the contemporary scene.

These teachings are medicine for our times—please read and let them free your heart." -- Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge
“BREATHE THIS BOOK IN! Lama Tsultrim shares her personal inner search and journey of healing and realization in this amazing teaching: true strength is not aggressive, true wisdom is not manipulative. To recognize our true nature is to honor the sacred feminine and the sacred masculine within and without. One without the other is not gonna do it.” -- Krishna Das
“Tsultrim Allione, one of our wisest Western Lamas, offers a powerful gateway of awakening for men and women alike into the deep feminine through the Tibetan teachings of Dakini Wisdom and the Mandala Principle. Wisdom Rising is a great contribution.” -- Jack Kornfield author of A Path With Heart

Even better, she shares many stories from her fascinating life, including her experiences as the first American woman initiated as a Tibetan Buddhist nun, and then as a struggling young wife and mother, and finally as a grandmother and Lama. This is an amazing woman with an amazing transmission. This book is a gift both on the level of words and knowledge, and on the level of the wisdom transmission it puts forth. If you dive deep into it and the practices it offers, it will transform you on both levels.

The background of the book is the author’s own personal healing journey on her spiritual path, the response of the women’s movement to abuse allegations by prominent men, the current world political situation and global climate change and ensuing disasters.
We are introduced to the Dakini principle fundamental to Tibetan Buddhist practice, whilst rooted in traditional practices this book is by no means religious. It is a call to understanding our deeper selves and the energies which underly our behaviour. By identifying the predominant patterns which prevent us from living from our wisest being we are led on a journey of connecting deeply with these energies. This journey takes many forms - psychological enquiry, embodiment, meditation and practices in nature with the elements. The journey is creative, joyful and fulfilling. There are aspects which are Shamanic in nature. The journey can be undertaken at many levels.
Wisdom Rising is an exciting response to our current times offering hope personally and in community. I’ve really enjoyed reading the book and wish it had been published 25 years ago when I first set out on my spiritual journey! It’s accessible and inspiring. I highly recommend delving deep into the riches Wisdom Rising reveals.
I have always loved Buddhist female deities... they can be fierce or sweet and loving, they can manifest what is called for at a specific time. So thank you Lama Tsultrim for accompanying us into this wonderful journey!!!
