These five dakinis manifest the feminine wisdom energy, bringing strength, power, and transformation to our lives. On The Mandala of the Enlightened Feminine, Tsultrim Allione — one of the first women to be ordained a Buddhist nun over 30 years ago — guides listeners through 12 rich, image-filled sessions of meditations and visualizations to learn how to embody these archetypes of enlightenment and experience their transformative powers.

Enlightened - Not Sure

Written by Marianne on June 4th, 2007

  • Book Rating: 1/5

I have made several attempts to listening to these CD's the author has a very monotone voice, and actually puts me to sleep. I am hoping one day to get through all of these CD's but it's going to take a lot of effort on my part. I don't recommend these CD's unless you need sleep.
