I have been present during Mirabai Starr’s classes at the University of New Mexico in Taos, on both Philosophy and the theologies of the major world religions. Also I have heard her lecture on many of the books she has written and several times have heard her speak on New Dimensions Radio. One would expect from such a background that she has gathered and synthesized a dazzling amount of knowledge, but she also brings understanding, and especially compassionate wisdom. These are God-sent gifts that are simply given to her. Her life experiences of suffering and love pour into the cup of different levels of understanding which she offers so generously as a teacher, lecturer, writer and guest speaker. I am enriched and honored by her friendship.

Mirabai is an authentic mystic, a true teacher and a wonderful soul. Anyone who comes to her will find their cup will be filled. I recommend her as a person and as a teacher with great confidence and joy.

Spiritual Teacher and Director 

Mirabai Starr is an extraordinary teacher not because she is so well versed in spiritual teaching–though she is. What makes her teaching so powerful is that her vast spiritual knowledge is rooted in the real experience of being human. Her genius lies in the profoundly humble way she opens her life as a guide to ours. In making this connection she shows us the deep and mysterious spiritual truths that hold all our lives together. A truly gifted teacher, she points us at once to and beyond ourselves. She does all of this with a spirit so light that all who share her presence are also lifted. Oh, did I say that she is also a lot of fun?

I always read your emails with great delight beloved Mirabai! I look forward to the ongoing Alchemy of wonder and groundedness because as I read your words and then bask in the lovely substantiation that lingers when I'm Done, my life expands and evolves. You emanate mystical, magical qualities that continue to spark the chords of my heart strings.

No tradition is left unturned in Mirabai’s search for what is alive and true. She possesses the rare ability to integrate insight from multiple sources into a unified message of love and hope. Her work as a translator, writer, and teacher speaks directly to the part of me that wants to engage with mystery but isn’t sure how to do so.


You have not only touched my heart, but both your writings and your voice have connected me more with myself. This has allowed me to bring forth more fully what I see as my holy idea. My copy of The God of Love is truly loved and written in almost as if we were having a personal dialogue. Your writings have given me both clarity and courage. You are indeed a credible witness, opening our hearts and minds to our true desires personally guiding and inviting us to sing our own special love song to the God of Love, even if it starts with a single note.


Mirabai Starr possesses passionate eloquence when speaking about mysticism, making the ineffable tangible and real as eating delicious food that’s good for you.


I wholeheartedly recommend Mirabai Starr. She is a gifted interspiritual teacher and author, and her translations of the mystics, especially St. Teresa of Avila, are an inspiration. Mirabai's knowledge of the perennial wisdom is extensive, and I would welcome any chance to learn with and from Mirabai. She teaches from her heartspace, with compassion and a generous spirit.


When I discovered that I could only see the stars in the darkness, I found Mirabai. She is one of those stars. And guided by her words, I began to feel that I could burn as well.


Mirabai is an amazing gentle authentic teacher with a polyreligious or interspiritual soul like my own. You don't find that easily, and for those of us whose spirits thrive outside the box, it's essential soul food!


The grace and beauty of Mirabai's work has become a cornerstone of my path into the Mystery. My first experience of her writing was the "God of Love" which quite literally cracked me open and engendered a new relationship to the Christianity in which I was raised. Her other literary works and translations of the saints have been equally compelling and her ongoing work in "interspirituality" is creating real change in our world. Spending time with her in person was a deep honor and a wonderful treat and I look forward to further opportunities to share our passion for the planet and our spiritual Oneness.
