Within the ever widening circle of today's spiritual discourse, no one I know of speaks with lucidity, intelligence and eloquence like Sally Kempton. If you didn't love to meditate before reading her first book, "Meditation For The Love Of It," you will upon completion. Her latest work, "Awakening Shakti," does just that. The book pulses with the same dynamic energy it describes so well. We are introduced to the family of Tantric Goddesses comprising the body of the eternal Feminine Principle. Reaching into the depths of this sacred mythology, Sally engages the varied forces of spiritual and psychological life revealing the elaborate jeweled aspects of the Goddesses and illuminating each in her most fierce and sublime features. As she does so, Sally demystifies the likes of Kali and Saraswati, making them recognizable to each of us in our everyday life.

From the opening pages, Sally's love, respect for and knowledge of these ancient teachings is obvious. But she does not leave the reader dangling from a thread of esoteric knowledge. Again and again, she brings us back to practice. Practices that help us understand these energies, relate to them effectively and deliver us into a direct experience of the Divine Feminine.

"Awakening Shakti" is a must read for women, and men alike, who wish to partake of a great adventurous story into the mythology and vastly inclusive spirituality of the Tantras. Like her first book, this is not simply a good read, but rather a piece of work to study and engage with. Enjoy.
