Publisher's Summary

The sensuous and the sublime, the ordinary and the divine - on the Tantric path, all qualities merge as one in the ecstasy and wonder of awakening.

Doorways to the Infinite invites us to directly experience the core practices and insights of Tantra from its original source: Kashmir Shaivism's Vijnana Bhairava. This dialogue between the deity Shiva and his consort Devi unfolds the secrets for moment-to-moment awakening into inner freedom and open-eyed ecstasy. Now, Sally Kempton unpacks the hidden truths of this text, revealing it as a treasury of powerful pathways to direct revelation.

With her gift for sharing subtle esoteric wisdom in an immediate and down-to-earth way, Kempton guides us into dozens of meditations and methods to engage our senses, imagination, breath, energy flow, attention, and postures as vehicles for radical and profound spiritual illumination. Doorways to the Infinite explores:

  • The breath within the breath, the heart within the heart
  • Listening, seeing, and feeling with full presence
  • Awakening to your inner body as space and light
  • Opening to the flow of your Kundalini energy
  • Engaging intense emotions for Self-realization
  • The spirituality of everyday activities
  • Intimate relationships and lovemaking
  • Physical movement, dance, and more

A graceful gesture can lead to a heart-stopping realization of your body as divine. A long, slow exhalation of the breath can reveal your connection to the Source of everything. A sound - any sound - can take you to the reality beyond sound. Realizations can unfold in a thousand ways. With Doorways to the Infinite, discover your true self - not by transcending the world, but through the extraordinary hidden within ordinary life.

    "Completely cleared out all of my Negative emotions"
    If you could sum up Doorways to the Infinite in three words, what would they be?

    hear theory, Do this exercise, Get this Benefit


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Doorways to the Infinite?

    The most memorable moment was when sally explains emotions as energy and shows you how to go into them to find the source vibration so you can release them and move on with your life. For me the source vibration is a heartbeat of sorts or a wiggle of energy.

    She then explains when you have bad emotions, you go into them into the shakti energy of the emotion and you can release them for good. its like "the Sedona Method" on overdrive.

    I had an issue with what new age groups call a "twin flame" or "soul tie", which is essentially a "soul mate", but this person was horribly damaged and abusive, she was ruining my life at work and at home. luckily i used this technique to completely clear out this person from my soul and life, it took 3 weeks of flushing all the negative emotions out of me, but I feel completely free and open up to the world again.

    when i encounter horrible emotions such as fear, anxiety, pain, suffering, i can now choose to go into the emotion and choose to move forward.this one technique was worth more to me then any other practice i've encountered in my 13 years of practicing meditation.


    What did you learn from Doorways to the Infinite that you would use in your daily life?

    Its all in the Breathe!
    its all shakti!
    i am not this bodyi am an expression of god and shift reality to the divine
    I am consciousness present and aware
    i am love accepting life
    I am this body and much more than that.
    my life comes from the inside
    Breathe

    Story
    "Excellent audio meditation manual"
    What made the experience of listening to Doorways to the Infinite the most enjoyable?

    Finally, a step-by-step manual for how to actually DO the teachings of Trika philosophy! I have been fascinated by and studying Kashmir Shaivism for several years but was never able to really understand how to practice the techniques discussed in the Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra. This excellent audiobook shed a lot of light on the practices. Based on my own meditation experiences prior to and after listening, I believe that the descriptions are very accurate. Amazingly enough, I had 'discovered' a couple of the techniques by accident - like the heart meditation, which has always been one of my favorites - and to hear them laid out here was really wonderful.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The accuracy and no-nonsense approach to instruction. I loved that the meditations were taught in such a step-by-step, pragmatic way. Exactly what's needed as there is a real dearth of very practical, plain language how-to guides on these techniques.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was okay. I found that the author's voice would put me to sleep, which kind of undermines the whole point. Also, I felt that the bells were very disruptive. Unfailingly, every single time I would 'get' an exercise, the bell rang a moment later and the author would begin talking again. This was very jarring. For this reason, I would suggest NOT meditating along with the book but just learning the techniques from the book and then meditating separately. Also, in comparison to Swami Lakshamanjoo's commentaries on this tantra and my own instruction in mantra japa, the Sanskrit pronunciation was not especially good and the breath was not coordinated properly with the reading of the verses.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The description of the heart meditation astonished me. I have meditated by focusing on my heart for a long time and I had always seen my heart as a sun, even dreaming of having the actual sun as my physical heart (complete with solar flares!). So, when the author described the heart meditation and mentioned the heart as the sun, it was pleasantly surprising and very moving.

    "Great Intro to Meditation of Kashmir Shaivism"
    What made the experience of listening to Doorways to the Infinite the most enjoyable?

    Sally Kempton's beautiful, calm voice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The incorporation of a variety of techniques of meditation, because we know that one style doesn't fit all.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Chapter 9 which explains how we came to be manifest through the power of Shakti.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Doorways to the Infinite?

    The wisdom that I am Shiva.

    "Wonderful, deepening & understandable"

    This was something I looked forward to hearing everyday and will replay over and over. Sally Kempton's voice, delivery and writing are clear and deepening for this journey. Thank you for passing on this material in such a thoughtful way as to leave the listener primed for more.

    Story
    "Consciousness in context of ever renewing ecstasy."

    A gorgeous tale packed with 112 simple meditations. Practical, powerful, and high replay value. This is a fine book for those interested in meditation, raising consciousness, and spiritual aspects of tantra. There are plenty of meditations, each of which require no props, no complicated rituals, and no prior experience.
