Editorial Reviews


Wisdom Rising speaks to the sacred feminine in all of us.” -- Deepak Chopra

"Wisdom Rising is a stunning call to women to trust our bodies and beings to manifest the energy, vision, and spirit to heal and transform these terrible times. A book full of wisdom, experience, stories, dakinis, mandalas, practices, and possibility." -- Eve Ensler, activist, playwright, and author of The Vagina Monologues

“In this accessible, deeply researched book, Allione invites Buddhist novices and practitioners to learn how meditating on the Mandala of the Five Dakinis can be used to renew energy and restore inner feminine strength and wisdom….[Wisdom Rising] encourage[s] women to integrate mandala practice with all aspects of life, including relationships, sexuality, and motherhood. 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.' Lama Tsultrim has taken gems from her long immersion in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, and leaves us this guide for spiritual life, emotional healing, and—if we follow her fierce, feminine lead—restoration of Mother Earth." -- Elizabeth Lesser, cofounder of Omega Institute, author of Broken Open and Marrow

Wisdom Rising is a fascinating insight into the divine feminine . 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

"Drawing on Tibetan teachings, Wisdom Rising transmits the potential and power of feminine wholeness. Lama Tsultrim Allione uses life stories, her own and others, to demonstrate that this potency is alive in the contemporary scene. The overall effect is a highly practical and usable guide, one broad in scope and deep in understanding.Those who adopt the practices offered here, women and men alike, may indeed feel their wisdom rising and act as forces for healing in the world."  -- Sharon Salzberg, New York Times bestselling author of Real Happiness

"The degradation of women, domination of marginalized populations, and destruction of the natural world cannot be separated: Our most essential work is awakening the sacred feminine. In her timely and groundbreaking book, Lama Tsultrim shows us a pathway that transforms emotions into illuminating wisdom, and empowers us to bring healing to our world. 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

"Wisdom Rising is a treasure for all women as it illuminates the path of healing, awakening, and empowerment in a way that is deeply personal, practical, holistic, and profound. Lama Tsultrim is one of the most important master teachers of our time and she brings forth the deep lineage of the sacred feminine, offering the heart of wisdom teachings for all to benefit at this turning point in our collective destiny.” -- Shiva Rea, yogini, author of Tending the Heart Fire
