Many (if not most, or all) powerful women mystics’ stories have been rewritten — or written out of — history...
Rarely do we have access to the true telling of women prophets speaking the voice of feminine power and wisdom, meeting depraved humanity with deep compassion, or creatively meeting life’s adversities...
Yet through these powerful guides, a profound path of transformation — for our lives and our world — is revealed.
Their prophetic voices, their radical wisdom, and their loving actions can nourish, empower and support you on your own journey of healing.
World renowned interspiritual teacher and author Mirabai Starr knows the path of the feminine mystic intimately...
And during this special workshop, you can discover a unique — previously untold — perspective on the “Three Marias,” to deepen your connection with yourself and the Beloved, witness the power of sisterhood, and help ground your actions in the sacred feminine.
Mary Magdalene risked everything to stand beside her beloved and speak the voice of feminine power and wisdom...
Mother Mary agreed to be the vessel for the incarnation of the Divine and then to bear loving witness to the execution of her son...
Miriam followed her baby brother Moses’ basket as it flowed down the Nile to safety. She then finagled to get the Pharaoh’s daughter to adopt him and hire his own mother as wet nurse.
In this hour, world-renowned interspiritual teacher and author Mirabai Starr will illuminate the profound wisdom (and share sacred texts) of these three great women prophets.
Mirabai Starr creates the space for you to come home to your full Self... a refuge where you can lay down your burdens, nourish your soul, and receive guidance for your daily life.
Our ability to connect authentically with the Beloved AND respond to the cries of the world — is rooted in feminine wisdom and the heart, according to Mirabai.
And not a sentimental heart, rather a fierce and loving presence.
During this special hour-long workshop, you’ll also learn about a new immersive program with her — on finding deeper refuge, healing, and solutions in a virtual sanctuary, with the feminine mystics and goddesses.
Ever since I met her when she was a teenager at the Lama Foundation, Mirabai Starr has been absorbed in the teachings of the great mystic saints, especially the women. Like her namesake, the poet-saint Mirabai, she brings to her work an intense love of God and a passion for the Beloved. My Guru said, “Love is the best medicine.” Mirabai will help open up your heart to love.

It’s with great pleasure and delight that I endorse the work of Mirabai Starr, who I find to be a soul companion as well as a professional colleague. In addition to being a gifted author, Mirabai is blessed with the capacity to inspire others with her wisdom and understanding of mystical theology. I referred to her translations of Teresa of Avila’s great masterpiece, The Interior Castle, while writing my own book, Entering the Castle, because of the excellence of her work. Mirabai is a rare jewel.

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.

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 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... One would expect from such a background that she has gathered and synthesized a dazzling amount of knowledge, but in addition she brings understanding, and especially compassionate wisdom. These are godsent 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’m enriched and honored by her friendship.

Mirabai’s words point toward the ineffable. She has an outstanding gift for language, plus penetrating insight, married to a heart of authentic compassion. Combined, the result is a gentle dynamite for opening and awakening.
