SAND18 US — Wild Mercy: The Wisdom of the Feminine

By Mirabai Starr

As the fierce and tender voice of the feminine rises again, we are gifted with renewed access to the women mystics and wisdom beings across the spiritual traditions, such as, Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich, Mary Magdalene, Sophia, the Shekinah, Song of Songs, Rabia, Fatima, Tara, Quan Yin, Kali, and indigenous Mother goddesses. In this gathering we engage in contemplative readings from the mystics, group reflections, evocative writing exercises, inter-spiritual chanting and silent sitting, weaving these luminous elements into a basket of awakened community.

In her unique and open-hearted way, writer, translator and poet Mirabai Starr talks of the many traditions which have touched her life, and shares her vision of an awakened community. She talks of the women mystics, reads their poems, and introduces her latest book, Wild Mercy: Living the Fierce and Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics.
