“Women across cultural boundaries are rising with our echoing yes in response to the collective call to step up and repair the broken world."
~ Mirabai Starr
This SDI workshop will provide a face-to-face, small-group experience with former SDI Conference keynote speaker, Mirabai Starr. A contemplative author and mystic for our time, Mirabai will present insights from her new book honoring the rise of the fierce and tender voice of the feminine.
At our workshop, she will celebrate women mystics and wisdom beings across the spiritual traditions, such as Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich, Mary Magdalene, the Shekinah, Rabia, Fatima, Tara, Quan Yin, Kali, and indigenous Mother goddesses.
Held April 1, 2019 at the welcoming offices of Spiritual Directors International in Bellevue, Washington, this gathering will invite you to engage in experiential exploration with:
- Contemplative readings from the mystics
- Group reflections
- Evocative writing exercises
- Inter-spiritual chanting and
- Silent sitting
Our intention will be to weave these luminous elements into a basket of awakened community.
Come join us as we invoke and honor the "wild mercy" inherent in feminine spirituality.
Mirabai Starr is one of the world’s foremost writers on what many are calling "The Divine Feminine." On April 2, 2019, in Bellevue, Washington, she will officially launch her new book, Wild Mercy - Living the Fierce and Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics. This new book is the fruit of many years of study and contemplation for Mirabai, who is the acclaimed translator of several works by the mystic Santa Teresa de Ávila. In it, Mirabai calls for a paradigm shift to feminine leadership in all walks of life, especially spirituality.This is more than an opportunity to hear a great author and speaker talk about her new work, it is a chance to share in contemplative community and re-animate ancient wisdom in your own life.Why not join us?
