Have you wanted a distinctly feminine spiritual path that is embodied, ecstatic and fulfilling... and actually leads to the awakened life you desire?
Have you suspected that goddess worshipping traditions are working with REAL forces and energies rather than symbols and metaphors – forces that can liberate you into a wholly new way of being?
It’s no secret that religion and spiritual practices have tended toward the masculine for the last 5,000 years – often to our detriment.
Too often, traditional visions of spirituality have denied the body, contributed to self-judgment and emphasized ego-slaying in lieu of nurturing a truly divine life.
It’s time for a spiritual path that evokes, awakens and communes with the feminine forces of the universe that are always available to support you – if you can only learn to open to their power.
In Tantric lineages of the East, such a path has been kept alive but almost always taught from the perspective of male teachers. Only now have these ancient transformational traditions started to benefit all genders, thanks to powerful female teachers who bring a new dimension and depth to these ancient practices.
This new, inclusive path promises to create a sacred marriage of masculine and feminine qualities that leads to a life of reverence, ecstatic mindfulness and delicious fulfillment.
Drawing on the transformative power of goddess practices passed down for millennia, this path empowers you to awaken, recognize this world as an expression of the Divine, and move through it with greater power, integrity and clarity.
Advanced initiates through the ages have created a reverential relationship with different goddesses and experienced the beautiful, blessed current of sacred energy they bring.
By entering into these practices – whatever your religious or spiritual background – you can begin to relate to the unique qualities of goddess energy, both in the world and in your body.
A Feminine Path of Liberation
As respected integral philosopher Ken Wilber says, “goddesses are REAL.” When invited, they have the power to support your evolution relatively quickly and easily.
Through the goddesses, spiritual liberation is less harsh but no less effective than the traditional path, and rich in subtle eros, heartfelt love and fulfilled desire.
This path not only feels better to walk, it also leads to the kind of radiant life we all desire: conscious, alive, ecstatic, impactful and infused with grace.
As this path arises in the hearts and minds of a new generation of practitioners, the heroic ideal of yogis straining to break free of this world is shifting toward enlightened teachers who can bless, savor and nourish life into its fullest expression – and guide you to do the same.
If you are called to go beyond a spirituality that feels dry and remote and into something that is juicy, fecund and beautiful – then The Wisdom Goddess Empowerment has been created just for you.
It’s more than a virtual course; it is an actual ignition of sacred channels of energy that can – should you choose to continue and deepen the practices – bless your life for years to come with specific qualities, powers and capacities required for a divinely human life.
Seven sessions will reveal great blessing forces that are available when you invite each goddess to live in you – and permeate your body, mind and emotions.
These goddess “empowerments” have thousands of years of history and reverence behind them. And they each can liberate YOU to become the powerful, sovereign – even majestic – being you are capable of becoming.
Each module in The Wisdom Goddess Empowerment will help activate and deepen an inner channel that calls forth the blessings of a particular goddess. The sages of the Hindu tantric traditions recognized that to live an awakened life, you need the help of these inner feminine powers. So they developed sophisticated systems for invoking and opening to the powers Durga, Lakshmi, Kali – and lesser-known, but equally powerful Hindu goddesses like Lalita, Bhuvaneshwari and Dhumavati.
Miracles happen when you tune into a particular goddess energy. She lends you her power and love, and brings alive your connection to the evolutionary Self, to others and to the physical universe.
Once these channels are activated, you can continue to open and deepen the relationship over time, infusing the enlightened qualities of each goddess into your life in ever-profound ways.
By the end of the seven modules, you will emerge with a literal re-wiring of your brain around what it means to engage in spiritual practice, meditation, and contemplation. You’ll have a deep understanding for how goddess visualizations and meditations can empower you with healing and transformation and the ability to engage these practices for specific challenges.
The Importance of a Sacred Guide
The crucial call for human beings to awaken and live in a new way can be answered in part when we understand the role of these sacred feminine energies in spiritual evolution. And there is no better guide into these mystical realms than author and renowned spiritual teacher Sally Kempton.
Sally is the author of Awakening Shakti: The Transforming Power of the Goddesses of Yoga, a book that has transformed the practice of many women in the yoga, business, academic and artistic worlds. She is a deep, transmitted practitioner of the Hindu goddess tradition and brings alive the wisdom and awareness of these deity figures.
Sally offers unique insights into both the dark and light sides of our relationship to the divine feminine. Her students attest to her ability to transmit a direct experience that can bring these energies alive in your own life.
During the seven modules of the Wisdom Goddess Empowerment, Sally will lead you into the powers and mysteries of these goddess energies through a radical transmission of the living practice of the Indian tantric tradition.
You’ll learn how to invite and invoke these energies and embody the qualities of the empowered feminine. Because goddess energies are at the heart of ALL life, theirs is a path to extraordinary aliveness and the emergence of your own divine nature.
By connecting with the powers and qualities these goddesses carry, you will:

Her first faculty position was at the Tufts University College of Medicine in Boston.

More Praise for Sally Kempton...
I feel deeply shifted by this class on awareness. I feel that a fundamental pathway has been shown to me, one that I profoundly resonate with, and that fuels my long existing curiosity ( a pale word for what has powered a long quest) about the nature of us as humans. The class feels like a key path that we have woven ourselves toward over these past months with you. I “get it” ( for now!) about thoughts being dense, I “get it” about the thoughts and verbiage tumbling through my mind rising from Shakti. And in moments that are often fleeting but always light I get the sense of witness, deep, still and silent. Those moments come more and more easily in walking around life as well as in sitting practice
– John, British Columbia
I am very happy to tell you that I am amazed with working with your book and telecourses. I feel that much is happening within me, and my outer life is also synchronistically reflect my meditations. Felt the most amazing bliss in the Lakshmi meditation. The Shakti was really like caressing me inwards by bliss and light. On another occasion I was just about to sit down for a Lakshmi meditation when I heard voices outside the window. I looked out in the winter evening and there was a beautiful wedding taking place in the park outside our house.
The whole yard was lit up by lights and candles. Generally, I feel more assertive now after these goddess weeks. Which is good for my relationship. I feel stronger in myself, which generates respect from my wife. I feel very excited to participate in this fantastic inner journey. Thanks.
This morning, in my meditation, I was led to asking the Great Mother to show Herself to me.... great longing, great breaking open of a fearful-to-go-all-the-way heart, great pushing into awareness.... ... I was left with the certainty of having been given a treasure beyond imagining or words, a confirmation that yes, I am THAT, that yes, I am loved, that yes, the consciousness that I am is eternal, and that it is in you and in you and in you....and that now all I need to do is to continue to practice and practice and practice. I’m feeling so very connected, and brimming over with thanks for this opportunity to learn from Sally.
– MC, United Kingdom
In small but persistent steps, much enhanced by a growing trust in the integrity of Sally’s way of teaching the teachings, I now begin to taste the radical freedom, the joyousness of being the subject with no object. Clarifying, giving a name to experience Spirit in each mode only amplifies them all. So I am blowing kisses to the Earth, sending bouquets and bowing to the Shakti in us all.
– PD, Florida
What I’ve learned through your classes has gotten me unstuck and able to explore Being/Becoming.
