Taking Refuge in the Wild Heart
Mirabai Starr illuminates feminine wisdom teachings once relegated to the shadows of history—and inspires you to bring their power into your own life.
“Women’s voices have been buried at the heart of every spiritual tradition, and it is time that we excavate and uplift them for the sake of all beings, including Mother Earth,” says author and spiritual guide Mirabai Starr. “We are all mystics, and our birthright is union with the One.”
In Taking Refuge in the Wild Heart, Starr shows us how to collectively reclaim feminine wisdom from the margins of patriarchy in order to embody this living spirit in our daily lives. This, she teaches, is a revolutionary act—one that is wildly creative and for everyone.
Each session invites you to experience guided practices and insights that evoke the living wisdom of feminine mystics, including historical figures like Hildegard of Bingen, Julian of Norwich, and the Bhakti poet Mirabai, as well as contemporary visionaries like Marie Howe and Lynn Ungar. Starr provides a fresh examination of Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, and Hinduism through the lens of the feminine—revealing an untapped power in familiar scriptures and teachings to awaken our hearts, cultivate community, and energize us to step up in compassionate action.
This six-session audio program includes guided meditation and writing journeys designed to:
- Cultivate a nourishing contemplative practice that inspires you to “feed” the world with your unique gifts
- Reframe the ways you’ve considered religion and mysticism in contemporary times
- Enliven your experience of Spirit in human form
- Take refuge in the art of literature, poetry, and storytelling
- Explore the healing power of community, solace, and service
Mystics do more than shake up the status quo—they reveal harms done by oppressive traditions and set us on a path toward healing. Join Mirabai Starr to discover an inclusive, comprehensive exploration of our hearts and return to the sacred center of us all.
