Wisdom of the Feminine with Mirabai Starr

Join us for this event celebrating Mirabai Starr’s new book! We are delighted that she has chosen Ghost Ranch as the place to launch her work that celebrates women and their spiritual roles throughout history.

Sunday, June 16 – Wednesday, June 19
As the fierce and tender voice of the feminine rises again, people of all genders 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, the Shekinah, Song of Songs, Bhakti poet Mirabai, Sufi mystic Rabia, Fatima, Tara, Quan Yin, Kali, and indigenous Mother goddesses.
 
In this gathering we immerse ourselves in the living transmission of these beings through engaging 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.
 
By drinking from the wellspring of women’s wisdom across the spiritual landscape (with the utmost respect for the cultural treasures being shared from these ancient wisdom traditions) we carry these living waters into our lives and offer them to a world thirsty for the feminine.
