Shakti Rising: Embracing Shadow and Light on the Goddess Path to Wholeness by Kavitha M. Chinnaiyan MD.
Publication date: October 2017
“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.”
Fabulous book!!! I not only totally enjoyed it, but benefited from it as well. I have read the books on the Mahavidyas by Sally Kempton and David Kinsley and this author is right up there!
Chapter by chapter you will explore the 10 Mahavidyas, all aspects of Shakti Herself. You will find things to consider, meditate about and exercises to use to help you identify these archetypes within! Much of the work is to help you move from our mundane dualistic way of viewing the world. Highly recommend!
