Awaken the powerful qualities of the great feminine mystics, already within YOU… and discover radical solutions for transforming your life and our world.

Enter into a healing sanctuary, to contemplate (and embody) the profound wisdom teachings of Mary Magdalene, the Goddess Kali, Shekinah, Rabia and many others.

Women’s voices are rising as they never have before — rising above dominant religious, social, and political paradigms. Rising above the panic of current events and intense polarization…

“Rising out of the ashes, where the Feminine has been buried alive for millenia,” says world-renowned interspiritual teacher and feminine mysticism scholar Mirabai Starr.

This is a powerful, transformative, and inspiring time…

However, if you’re answering the call to step up to be of service in the world, you may also feel overwhelmed or discouraged, or struggling with what it means to “own your power” outside the traditional hierarchy.

Mirroring the changes and challenges of the world, your own life may be in transition, too. Perhaps you’ve recently lost a loved one, let go of a significant relationship, realized your career is not aligned with your calling, or you’re facing a chronic illness.

Your intuition is confirming that “fixing” won’t work this time… something more is needed.

Becoming “empowered” or overcoming obstacles can still be actions that arise inside the framework of the hierarchical power structure (in you and in the world).

There’s a more feminine approach to transforming suffering — a way of being the world urgently needs — and the women mystics and goddesses show us the way.

The Feminine doesn’t ask us to fix our brokenness, it calls us to embrace it.

Mirabai invites you deeper into a “sanctuary”… into a refuge where you can lay your burdens down and allow solutions to arise organically out of the brokenness and the wisdom and love of the Feminine.

She encourages us to yield to a compassionate deconstructing — in which we let go of other people’s imprints and energy, religious dogma, preconceived notions of service, and ideas of personal power.

You’re invited to enter the sanctuary of the Beloved. Here, you’ll discover renewal and draw on the feminine energies of profound mercy, guiding wisdom, and creative expression.

Mirabai knows intimately the path into this sanctuary…

Mirabai’s interspiritual teachings evoke wisdom, grace and compassion in her students. Yet, her mere presence can be healing. She has been transformed by going to the depths of grief and loss — including the death of her 14-year-old daughter in a car accident — and through her intimate connection with the Beloved and the feminine mystics and goddesses.

And now, in this unique sanctuary and virtual community, Mirabai will guide YOU to surrender to your own heartaches (big and small) and recognize your struggles as a sacred call to your full humanity.

Enter Into a Virtual Sacred Space With the Wild Goddesses & Mystics of Mercy…

As you enter this timeless sanctuary, you’ll discover that the beautiful energies of the female goddesses and mystics are already embodied within you.

Mary Magdalene risked everything to stand beside the Beloved and spoke with the voice of feminine power and wisdom. She models the sacred power of grief and loss as a bridge to greater love.

Kwan Yin, Chinese bodhisattva of compassion, pours mercy from the palms of her hands onto our broken hearts.

Gaia is both our nurturing Mother and our traumatized sister… as well as bountiful and connected to all things.

Teresa of Avila will help you recognize and begin to embody sacred in all you do. Her life and teaching can guide you to cultivate the inner life with rigor and courage, and then to offer the fruits of the journey to the world in service.

The Shekinah, the indwelling feminine face of the Divine in Jewish mysticism, is the essence of the Sabbath, and invites a true integration with the Divine Masculine.

When an experience shatters you emotionally and spiritually, the beloved Hindu Goddess Kali burns her fire into your soul to liberate and transform you… empowering you to bring forth her fierce love in your work in the world.

The Mayan Goddess Ixchel represents the mystery and joy of female sexuality, mother of earth and all life. She wears a serpent on her head, representing the stages of life, from death to renewal.

Mirabai, the Bhakti poet from the Hindu tradition, chronicled her impassioned union with the Beloved in her ecstatic writings. An activist and a prophet who left a life of privilege, she lived among the poorest of the poor.

The eighth century Sufi saint, Rabia al-Adawiyya, was the embodiment of fierce devotion, of uncompromising spiritual discipline and all-consuming spiritual fire. She was not afraid to speak truth to power.

During this 7-week video training with world-renowned interspiritual teacher Mirabai, you’ll discover:

  • The unconventional and intriguing life of St.Teresa of Avila and find out how she can serve as a vital and relevant companion on your own inner journey
  • Connect with the imminence of the Shekinah in the Jewish tradition, as a guide to full embodiment
  • Become familiar with different modes of contemplative practice and make a commitment to some form of regular meditation
  • Reclaim Mary Magdalene to her rightful place in the mythos of the Christ
  • Discover Julian of Norwich’s vision of Christ the Mother
  • Listen to passages from the Showings, in which Julian of Norwich reveals why God could not possibly blame us for our transgressions
  • Contemplate the story of how Kwan Yin became a divine being
  • Discern between charity dispensed to those perceived as having (or being) less, and compassion based on the realization of our essential unity with those who suffer
  • Commit to a regular Sabbath practice
  • Identify a particular issue of personal concern regarding the plight of the planet and make a commitment to action on behalf of the Earth
  • Discover an ecstatic love for the Divine within the poetry of the mystics

The women mystics and goddesses of all spiritual traditions are connected to a deep wellspring of wisdom and vitality, which not does the world urgently need but for which the world is at last ready. From these timeless sources and with Mirabai’s guidance, you’ll tend to the matters in your heart…

You may have deep concern about the earth and how you can help care for Her. Or you want to stand courageously with those on the margins. Or you’re feeling the need to heal your sexuality and your relationships.

You may also be yearning to cultivate a more contemplative life and for a deeper union with the Beloved…

In this 7-week virtual sanctuary, you’ll explore each of these matters through the wisdom of a woman mystic and a goddess who serve as way-showers.
