Awaken the feminine mystic within yourself and birth her loving, creative, and untamed power into the world. The feminine mystic is 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.
Join Starr, author of the newly released book Wild Mercy: Living the Fierce and Tender Wisdom of Women Mystics, and be part of women across cultural boundaries who are rising with an echoing “yes” in response to the collective call to step-up and repair a broken world. Root yourself in a resounding “no” in the face of injustice to fellow human beings and Mother Earth.
Explore different facets of feminine mysticism through a tapestry of teachings, reflections, and stories, along with practices for integrating the wisdom into your own life. Become inspired to awaken your own inner mystic as you immerse yourself in the guidance of sages by:
- Taking refuge in contemplative practice with St. Teresa of Avila and the Shekinah
- Opening your heart for feminine spiritual practice with the Hindu poet Mirabai and Mary Magdalene
- Engaging your relationship with the Earth, motherhood in all its forms, and a loving call to action alongside Gaia and Ix Chel
- Connecting with the web of life with Indra, the Beguines, and female prophets throughout history
- Tapping wild, playful, and compassionate mercy with Tara and Kuan Yin
- Finding joy in creativity and the arts with Saraswati and Chiyo-ni
Gain inspiration from archetypal goddesses and amazing women past and present. Engage in the practice of contemplative reading of mystical poetry to transform your consciousness and open your heart. Immerse yourself in group reflections, meditations, evocative writing, image-making exercises, and inter-spiritual chanting. Employ these spiritual practices into your own life as you gather the fortitude of a fierce and tender woman.
Weave these luminous elements and quench your thirst from the wellspring of women’s wisdom across the spiritual landscape to carry these living waters into your life and offer them to a world thirsty for the Divine feminine. Strengthen your light to guide your own journey of spiritual awakening and service in the world. This workshop will be recorded and participants will receive a link to stream at their convenience as part of the workshop fee.
