Kavitha M. Chinnaiyan, MD, reveals how we can transform a path of suffering to one of sweetness, joy and beauty, based on her new book Shakti Rising: Embracing Shadow and Light on the Goddess Path to Wholeness.
The pursuit of contentment is an innate part of the human experience, arising from a fundamental sense of lack or inadequacy - all the things we believe to be wrong with us when we compare or judge ourselves. In our search for peace and happiness, we may find ourselves fighting the shadows within us, trying to repress or disown certain qualities, especially our anger, violence, discomfort, craving, and disappointment. But in order to stop this fight, we must expand our understanding beyond the dualities of good versus bad, right versus wrong, and beautiful versus ugly, and accept the parts of ourselves we’ve tried to deny.
Kavitha shows us how the wisdom of the Mahavidyas, the ten wisdom goddesses who represent the interconnected darkness and light within all of us, can assist us on this transformational journey, in a highly relevant way today.
