In this "stunning call to women to trust our bodies and beings to manifest the energy, vision, and spirit to heal and transform these terrible times" (Eve Ensler, activist and writer of The Vagina Monologues), Lama Tsultrim Allione helps you discover the hidden power of mandala meditation and the tantric dakinis.

Ordained as one of the first Western Buddhist nuns and recognized as a reincarnation of a renowned eleventh century Tibetan yogini, Lama Tsultrim nonetheless yearned to become a mother, ultimately renouncing her vows so she could marry and have children. When she subsequently lost a child to SIDS, she found courage again in female Buddhist role models, and discovered a way to transform her pain into a path forward. Through Lama Tsultrim's story of loss and spiritual seeking, you will learn how to strengthen yourself with meditation, sound, visualization, and other Tantric Buddhist practices.

The mandala was developed as a tool for spiritual transformation, and as you harness its power, it can serve as a guide to wholeness. With knowledge of the mandala of the five dakinis (female Buddhist deities who embody wisdom), you'll understand how to embrace the distinct energies of your own nature. Lama Tsultrim shares from a deep trove of personal experiences as well as decades of sacred knowledge to invite you to explore an ancient yet accessible path to shift your emotional challenges into empowerment. Her unique perspective on female strength and enlightenment will guide you as you restore your inner spirit, leading you toward the change you aspire to create in the world. Both practical and inspiring, Wisdom Rising "speaks to the sacred feminine in all of us" (Deepak Chopra).
