His previous book Healing Mantras: Using Sound Affirmations for Personal Power, Creativity and Healing presented 50 effective Sanskrit chants with their translations. This ambitious and enlightening work shows how to use mantras to tap into the Sacred Feminine energy and power — shakti — that resides in everyone.
