"In this book Lama Tsultrim breathes life into esoteric aspects of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition-dakini visualizations, mandalas, and shrines-by intertwining lucid Buddhist teachings with profound stories from her rich life experiences, all the while demonstrating the importance of Buddhist wisdom for our challenging times." -- Sarah Jacoby, PhD, author of Love and Liberation "This beautiful book is composed of three distinct elements. First, it's an immensely rich and insightful body of tantric teachings for working with emotional energies, one which I'll return to again and again as both student and teacher. Second, it's a moving memoir, recounting the journey of one of the most compelling Buddhist teachers in the West. Third-and perhaps most importantly for our moment-it is a treatise on the ways patriarchy has biased and corrupted Buddhism as it expands globally in the 21st century. The patriarchy truly must be smashed, with clarity and without aggression, and Lama Tsultrim Allione's wonderful book helps prepare the ground to do just that." -- Ethan Nichtern, author of The Road Home: A Contemporary Exploration of the Buddhist Path "A calm, serious, yet buoyant New England practicality glows up out of this transcendent work by the extraordinary Lama Tsultrim Allione...Even as she has mastered and distilled the most complex and subtle of esoteric Buddhist concepts, she brings her own deep moral feminist courage and that of her stalwart ancestors to her teaching and writing, and to this powerful call for the re-emergence of the sacred Dakini principle in all of us. We, and our troubled world, need this journey-map to healing and evolution." -- Diana Rowan Rockefeller, trustee at The Authors Guild Foundation, former editor at The Atlantic Magazine "Lama Tsultrim Allione is generously offering a feast of wisdom nectar and enjoyment as she weaves together the prose of a great life story with the truth of the Buddhadharma that she has internalized over her lifetime. Her unique ability to bridge the gap between East and West has caused the profound path of Choed, Severance, to come alive in the minds of countless practitioners. Now, Lama Tsultrim has illuminated the outer, inner and essential meaning of the sacred configurations of mandalas, providing an accessible and useful guide for transformation and wisdom. May there be great benefit for all who read this!" -- Sangye Khandro, teacher, translator "In Wisdom Rising, Tsultrim Allione draws on her spiritual depths to distil profound Tibetan wisdom into user-friendly practices well-suited for our times and lives." -- Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence "The empowered feminine is fully and deeply revealed in this powerful and revelatory book, a book whose time has come, and yet born of years of practice and deep inquiry by its author the beloved teacher Lama Tsultrim Allione." -- Roshi Joan Halifax, abbot of Upaya Zen Center "Lama Tsultrim Allione is a pioneer, a serious seeker of wisdom, and a teacher who has had a tremendous influence on Western Vajrayana Buddhism. As a mother, long-time practitioner, and someone who has studied under some of the most realized contemporary masters of the Vajrayana tradition, she has a lot to share with us. In her new book, Wisdom Rising, she presents the wisdom of the mandala principle in a personal, earthy, and authentic way. I think that you will find the stories and instruction in this book deeply inspiring, transformative, and practical." -- Elizabeth Namgyel, author of The Logic of Faith "What a timely message of empowerment and hope! Lama Tsultrim Allione, one of the foremost pioneers of bringing Buddhism to the West, guides us on an inspiring journey into the heart of Tibetan Buddhism - the sacred principle of the awakened feminine. Allione masterfully shows us the secret to harnessing the energy of the dakini within, through contemporary stories, per
