So often we spend our lives chasing an experience of being loved in the outer world and forget that a sublime and even ecstatic relationship with the True Beloved is available within us.
Embracing the Divine as our ultimate Beloved is a time-honored spiritual path that history’s female mystics, in particular, have walked with inspiring grace.
What can you learn from these remarkable women about how you can have a tender, devotional and even erotic relationship with the Beloved at the core of your spiritual life?
Please join me and thousands of seekers of an ecstatic relationship with the Divine, when mystic-scholar Mirabai Starr presents The Feminine Mystic Unveiled: Embracing the Divine as Your Beloved.
You can receive your FREE recording here.
What if you could walk the ecstatic path of feminine mystics like Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich and the great Sufi poet Mirabai — and surrender into the arms of grace?
An ecstatic love for the Beloved, or Divine, unifies feminine mystics across multiple wisdom traditions and lineages, and now the bliss and sense of wholeness these remarkable women experienced can nourish your own heart and soul.
Relating to the Divine as a lover is a time-honored spiritual path that many of history’s greatest female mystics have walked with radiant grace. Infused with longing and uplifted by gratitude, this love transforms all relationships.
Like the feminine mystics, you can begin to see the Divine in the eyes of others and relate to them with true devotion.
If you choose to be with a human partner, you can experience ecstasy through touch, gaze and movement. And if not, the touch of wind, sun, and earth on your skin can be like the gentle caress of a lover.
An ecstatic connection with the Beloved is the highest expression of love, both erotic and beyond erotic. It is the loving presence of the universe pouring through you.
While you might think this kind of ecstasy would immobilize you, leaving you unable to manage your busy, modern life, the path of devotion is one of embodied spirituality, in which you see the sacred everywhere, in all things.
St. Teresa of Avila walked this path of balancing both worlds. She was a highly integrated human being who was both ecstatic (flying into raptures with the Beloved) and practical.
Similarly, the Eastern poet-sage Mirabai, offers a template for a female mystic who experienced the upper octaves of delight in her body and mind — a delicious dance with the Beloved, that she chronicled in her ecstatic poetry. But she was also an activist and a prophet who left a life of privilege to live among the poorest of the poor.
Both of these revered women offer clues for the modern feminine mystic who craves this kind of passionate love relationship with the Divine while accessing her inner resources to meet the complexities of life.
In this fascinating call event, one of the foremost scholars of feminine mysticism, Mirabai Starr (named for the beloved poet-saint of India), takes us into the heart of ecstasy, exploring divine devotion as a natural ingredient for women (and men) on the feminine mystical path.
The path of ecstasy is not, as Mirabai will show, a lesser substitute for nondual enlightenment, but a practice ground for living in an exalted state while engaging in effective action in the world.
Mirabai will share the profound experience of devotion at the heart of the lives of many of the great female mystics like St. Teresa of Avila, and how you, too, can unite with the Beloved and live in a rarified state while still engaging in grounded action and service in the world….
During this inspiring hour, you’ll discover:
- How to say “yes” to longing at the core of your pathway to the Divine
- The power and beauty born of spiritual desire and devotion
- Devotional practices that help unite you with the Beloved and see the Divine in the eyes of others
- How to be more available to moments of ecstasy in your daily life
So join me for this powerful reclamation of the feminine path that is enlivening, ecstatic and truly soul-nourishing.
