Mirabai Starr – Women Mystics: What We Can Learn From Their Fierce and Tender Wisdom

Aired Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 4:00 PM PST / 7:00 PM EST

We live in a world that has suffered the abuses of an unbalanced masculine rule for thousands of years—but everything we’re hearing and reading right now suggests that the feminine is rising. According to this week’s guest, Mirabai Starr, “seeds of feminine wisdom that have been quietly germinating underground are now breaking through the surface. Women everywhere are rising to the collective call to step up and repair our broken earth and we are activating a paradigm shift such as the world has never seen.”

Mirabai Starr is a writer of non-fiction and contemporary translations of sacred literature who has received critical acclaim for her revolutionary new translations of the mystics, John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila and Julian of Norwich. Featured on the 2020 Watkins’ list of the “100 most spiritually influential living people of the world,” is the award-winning author of God of Love: A Guide to the Heart of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and Caravan of No Despair: a Memoir of Loss and Transformation. She taught philosophy and world religions at the university of New Mexico-Taos for 20 years and now teaches and speaks internationally on contemplative practice and inter-spiritual dialogue.
