Publisher's Summary

The sages of Tantra have known for centuries that when you follow the path of Shakti - the sacred feminine principle personified by the goddesses of yoga - these gifts can manifest spontaneously. Yet most of us, women as well as men, have yet to experience the full potential of our inner feminine energies. When you know these powers for what they are, they heighten your capacity to open spiritually, love more deeply and fearlessly, create with greater mastery, and move through the world with skill and delight. 

In Awakening Shakti, you will learn how to recognize and invite:  

  • Kali, bringer of strength, fierce love, and untamed freedom  
  • Lakshmi, who confers prosperity and beauty  
  • Saraswati, for clarity of communication and intuition  
  • Radha, who carries the divine energy of spiritual longing  
  • And more  

With a wealth of meditations, visualizations, mantras, teachings, and beautifully told stories, Awakening Shakti provides a practical guide for activating the currents of the divine feminine in every aspect of your life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

SO AMAZING!

This audible version is worth 10x it’s cost. The narrator’s voice is so calm and soothing and it brings to life the content in a beautiful way. There are some meditation exercises here, which works out great with her soothing voice.

Honestly, this is such a life changing and inspiring book for anyone who is into the Divine Feminine and empowering yourself through these dynamic goddesses.

Great Text, Horribly Inappropriate Narration

I appear to be one of the only people who hate this narration. I agree that this woman has a nice voice and is perfectly professional, but she also sounds like the epitome of the traditional disempowered female ideal. Pretty, graceful, weak and soft, this voice is completely at odds with the energy of the goddess. For someone like me who is more the Durga or Kali type, this delicate, male-pleasing energy is just worthless. The text itself is awesome, but the narration threatens to transform it into superficial new-age fluff. I have to try very hard to separate the words from the voice and still get value from it. I would much prefer to read this in book form, but I already spend too much time sitting at my computer for work. I think i might have to buy a treadmill so i can hold a book and read while i walk without risking getting hit by a car.

Solid Content, Distracting Voice Actor

The explorations of the feminine energies and their respective mythologies were interesting, but the whispery narrator was incongruent with the content.

Worth listening to...

Once probably ain't cutting it. Twice or thrice is more likely. Narrator sounded like a sex phone worker but besides that the book was a massive trove of information...

Great book, not a fan of the narrator whisper voice

The book is full of wisdom but the narrator talks in a sexy whisper voice. I found it hard to concentrate as I was annoyed by the voice. Might buy in a paper form to truly absorb the information.

Good content, poor presenter…

I bought the hard copy of this book long time ago and always enjoy the content, therefore when I noticed its audio form, without thinking too much I placed my order.
Sadly…the presenter’s voice and tone is really hard for me to continue listening. Yes, this book is spiritual, but a spiritual voice isn’t equal to “weak” voice.
I tried to return this audio book since I only listened to the first few minutes, but the system doesn’t allow me to return. What can I say? I waste one credit for this one.
If you are interested in this book, buy the hard copy or ebook, do not waste your money for the audio one.

Came into my life in such a synchronous way!

This book has become such a resource for my spiritual development and conscious awakening. Even if one is not religious, I feel all of the world needs these teachings! I'm sure a better, more compassionate society would arise!

Great listen

Fascinating stories that paint a picture into the topic of the divine feminine mahavidya deities of the Hindu pantheon. The narration was soothing and complemented the content of the book well.

Life changing

I don’t usually write reviews but I’m so grateful for this book. As a yoga teacher I’m not new to this topic so I can confirm that this book is an authentic and genuinely helpful for anyone on the spiritual path. Also the narrator is awesome.

🙏Exceptionally written. 🙏.

Superb book. Well written. There are no words to describe the energy shift I am experiencing by implementing the guided meditations.

Fingers crossed I too shall merge with pure consciousness one day.

Thank you for writing it. Sally Kempton may very well one day be worshipped as a deity herself for her contributions to mankind. 🙂.

A beautiful journey into spirituality

I purchased this book as the adjunct to partaking in Navaratri - the nine nights where we honour the divine feminine in the Hindu calendar. It opened my eyes to seeing the intricacies of goddess aspects both within my inner world and the external.

The narration was fluid and easy to listen to, I could have sat with this and listened from start to finish! One of my favorite audiobooks by far and one I will be referencing back to as I move forward in my journey.

The additional PDF that it comes with is fantastic - including gorgeous illustrations to help visualize each goddess. Thank you x

Great .. could have been produced far better

This would be exceptional However both this book and the mediations on Shakti are not chaptered properly the mediations are hard to find in amoungst the dialogue. Which is super disappointing and time wasting if you would like to take on the practice.
Otherwise sally has done a wonderful job in making Shaktism available to the general public.
Thank you for your wonderful work

Deeply profound

This is by far the best book I have ever had the privilege of listening to. I absolutely love Sally’s work however the narrator brought this book to life. The resonance of each word permeated my being as the goddesses came to life within me. Thank you from the depths of everything and nothing
