June 15 - 20, 2018
Join interspiritual author and teacher, Mirabai Starr, for an exploration of the many ways the wellspring of wisdom at the heart of all religious and spiritual traditions resources us to become a resource for others.
In this gathering, we follow the streams of mystical longing and social justice through readings from the ecstatic poetry of the mystics, investigating sacred texts of the world’s great religions, sitting in contemplative silence, chanting the names of God in an array of languages, and engaging in deep dialogue through conversation and writing.
