REWATCH: ‘A Fierce and Tender Wisdom’ Livestream event with Mirabai Starr
September 22, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
In this Free Livestream Event “A FIERCE & TENDER WISDOM”, mystical feminist Mirabai Starr shares the fruits of many years of investigating, excavating, and lifting up female voices within this tradition. She writes, “Long-buried wisdom teachings and previously ignored women mystics are revealing themselves to be urgently relevant as we pass through a global dark night of the soul and into a radically renewed humanity. With its emphasis on relationally and inclusivity, its tolerance for ambiguity, and its intimacy with mystery, the feminine reclaims the body as holy ground and blesses the web of interbeing that sustains.” In this talk, she shares the fruits of many years of investigating, excavating, and lifting up female voice.
