Event description

Description

Learn to awaken your own inner mystic, as you immerse yourself in the guidance of sages who embody feminine wisdom: Teresa of Avila, Sufi saint Rabia, the bhakti poet Mirabai, Quan Yin, Tara, the Shekinah, and Sophia. Mirabai Starr, inter-spiritual author and teacher, helps us to transmute the lead of global strife into the gold of awakened community. Her new book is Wild Mercy: Living the Fierce and Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics. Mirabai is also author of God of Love and Caravan of No Despair and new translations of Dark Night of the Soul by John of the Cross, The Interior Castle and The Book of My Life by Teresa of Avila . She teaches philosophy and world religions at the University of New Mexico. Her commentaries on the interconnected wisdom of all traditions are lyrical and evocative. Mirabai builds bridges not only between religious traditions, but also between contemplative life and compassionate service, between cultivating an inner relationship with the Beloved and expressing that intimacy in community, between the transformational power of loss and longing for the sacred.
