Meeting the Goddess of Consciousness – Sally Kempton

Video with

The non-dual tantric traditions describe individual human consciousness as a fractal of the creative universal consciousness that is the source of all life. As such, it is the creative playground of subtle ‘feminine’ energies called shaktis, which can either contract consciousness or expand it. This insight has profound implications for practice, and is at the heart of deep feminine spirituality. In this class, we’ll look at practical and experiential pathways for expanding consciousness, based on the practice traditions of Kashmir Shaivism.

Sally Kempton is a powerful teacher of applied non-dual wisdom, known for her ability to kindle meditative states in others, and to help students apply non-dual awareness to practical life. She teaches teleclasses, retreats, and workshops, appearing regularly at conference centers such as Esalen and Kripalu. Sally is the author of Meditation for the Love of It, which one reviewer called “the meditation book your heart wants you to read.” She writes a regular column, Wisdom, for Yoga Journal, as well as a column called Meditation for Life on the Internet religious site Patheos.com. A former swami in a Vedic order, Sally trained for thirty years in the close company of two enlightened masters. Sally’s teachings are based on Kashmir Shaiva tantra, and combine the wisdom of that tradition with the practical understandings of contemporary psychology and Integral theory.
