For 40 years, Sally Kempton has been practicing and teaching devotional contemplative tantra—an approach to practice that creates a fusion of knowing and loving. She is widely regarded as one of the most knowledgeable and respected teachers of yogic meditation and philosophy.
A disciple of Swami Muktananda, Sally, formerly known as Swami Durgananda, spent 20 years as a monk in the Saraswati order. In 2002, she began teaching independently.
She now offers heart-to-heart transmission in meditation and life practice through her Awakened Heart Tantra workshops, teleclasses, retreats, and trainings in applied spiritual philosophy. Her teaching integrates the wisdom of traditional yoga tantra with the insights of contemporary evolutionary spirituality and cutting-edge psychology.
Sally is the author of Meditation for the Love of It and writes Yoga Journal's Wisdom column. She regularly teaches at the California Institute for Integral Studies, Kripalu Center for Health and Healing, Esalen Institute, and at Yoga Journal conferences. Sallykempton.com
