Mirabai Starr: A Fierce and Tender Wisdom
Mirabai Starr has written extensively on the mystics and the unifying teachings at the heart of all spiritual paths, with a gift for making timeless wisdom accessible to contemporary seekers. She joins us at The Sophia Institute for two offerings:
- Wild Mercy: Wisdom of the Feminine. In Friday evening’s talk, Mirabai shares about the feminine mystic as one who gathers the pain of the world into her arms and transmutes it with “wild mercy” – a merging of fierce courage with the unstoppable forces of forgiveness, compassion and love. She is needed now more than ever.
- From Dark Night to Transformation, Saturday’s workshop draws on wisdom traditions and insights arising from Mirabai’s own poignant journey, to explore the catalysts for transformation in our lives—bridging contemplative life and compassionate service, cultivating an inner relationship with the Beloved and expressing that intimacy in community, exploring the transformational power of loss and darkness and the longing for the sacred.
