By understanding the illuminating revelations of St. Teresa of Avila, you can discover a profound alchemy of body, mind and soul that lies at the heart of feminine mysticism – turning your heartache and longing into an ecstatic pathway to reunification with the Beloved. This feminine pathway allows you to embrace the world in a sacred, whole and celebratory way.
Have you ever felt that the religious traditions we’ve inherited are deeply imbalanced, relegating feminine mystics and their perspective to marginal, undervalued, and even submissive, roles – much to our great loss?
The truth is that some of history’s most sublime mystics have been women, and they often walk a very different pathway to their realization, using their longing for union as a portal into the infinite.
In this free teleseminar event, one of the most respected teachers of Interspirituality, Mirabai Starr, explores the mystical insights that come from reuniting with the Beloved, particularly focusing on the profound realizations of St. Teresa of Avila.
Mirabai has written four acclaimed books on St. Teresa, and offers an intimate window on her mystical journey and the stages of her initiation – insights that illuminate a very different pathways for feminine mystics in every lineage.
In this powerful free online event event, you’ll:
- Gain a new understanding of what mysticism really is
- Expand your ability to befriend your heartache, pain and longing as allies on the path
- Open to a vision of God that is masculine-feminine balanced, and a path that includes ecstatic surrender.
- Practice yielding to heartbreak as an opening to the Infinite
- See how to walk the path of dissolving the Separate Self and reuniting with the Beloved
It’s time to evolve a new kind of wholeness at the heart of the lineages we’ve inherited by learning from the inspired women mystics who have pioneered a more earthy, loving, holistic, and even wild, vision of spiritual life – one that leads us from ecstatic union into humble service.
This feminine mystical pathway supports the great healing of our times through repairing the wounds in our hearts, minds and bodies, and addressing the real suffering in the world.
Mirabai is a remarkable scholar of global mystics who practices vipassana, observes Shabbat and honors all spiritual expressions. She will help you reclaim a key aspect of your spiritual-religious heritage.
