Our dear friend and international author and speaker, Mirabai Starr, will be part of Earth Journey's offerings on the Divine Feminine on Friday and Saturday, August 2 and 3.
She has just published Wild Mercy: Living the Fierce and Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics.
As the fierce and tender voice of the feminine rises again, we are gifted with renewed access to the women mystics and wisdom beings across the spiritual traditions, such as Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich, Mary Magdalene, the Shekinah, Rabia, Fatima, Tara, Quan Yin, Kali, and indigenous Mother goddesses.
"Wild Mercy is mystical brilliance at its best. Mirabai once again gives the teachings of renowned women mystics new voice as only she can. Her gift for communicating the essential wisdom of the feminine is truly beyond compare. Mirabai is a poet of the soul."
-- Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit and Sacred Contracts

Friday Evening - This public talk has a suggested donation of $15. It will be held at 7 pm at the Meditation Temple at 28 Quintana Road. Carpooling is a good idea, as parking is limited.
Saturday Retreat Day - This retreat day is by reservation. It lasts from 9 am to 4 pm. There will be a catered healthy lunch as part of the event. In this gathering we engage in contemplative readings from the mystics, group reflections, evocative writing exercises, inter-spiritual chanting and silent sitting, weaving these luminous elements into a basket of awakened community.
The fee to cover expenses is $80, $20 of which must be paid by July 26 to hold your space. Space is limited. Please plan for an additional donation to Mirabai, the traditional dana (meaning gift or generosity in Sanskrit) offering to the teacher.
RESERVATIONS: Make your $20 payment to reserve your space by contacting Martha at (575) 776-7579; sheppmartha (at) gmail.com. You will receive a registration form, which will include an option to donate funds for scholarship money or apply for scholarship money if $80 is a hardship. At that time we'll tell you what supplies you may need, and other essential details.
PLEASE NOTE: Both events will take place in a sacred space -- Earth Journey's Meditation Temple. There will be guidance on how we respectfully utilize this space when you arrive. Smoking, drugs, and alcohol are not permitted in this space.
