All Will Be Well With Mirabai Starr
No matter where we are individually and collectively on our journey through the coronavirus pandemic on May 9th, we will still be living in a time of uncertainty about the future.
The long term economic, health, and emotional effects of this pandemic are unknown. But we can look to the wisdom of 14th century mystic, Julian of Norwich, to guide us through these days.
Mirabai Starr, author of a contemporary translation of The Showings of Julian of Norwich, knows Dame Julian intimately through her writings and will share her wisdom and the deeper meaning beneath her famous words “All will be well.” Also referenced in Mirabai’s latest book, Wild Mercy: Living the Fierce and Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics, Dame Julian’s faith brought her peace despite the suffering she experienced.
Come be with us virtually as Mirabai wraps us in the loving, compassionate, and fierce wisdom of Julian of Norwich, so we may move through these challenging times with more hope, faith, and compassion.
Together, we will:
- Experience the feminine face of God through Dame Julian’s writings.
- Be reminded that “we each carry a spark of the Holy One inside us, and this can never be extinguished.”
- Explore how any suffering we’re experiencing can be seen as “a purifying fire, a blessing in itself.”
- Remember or begin to awaken to the truth “that we are unconditionally adored by God.”
Leave this time together refreshed in spirit, more hopeful, and more compassionate for self and others.
