Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
Mirabai Starr was raised in a secular Jewish household, has maintained a Buddhist meditation practice since the age of sixteen, has engaged the ecstatic mystical traditions of Sufism, and now lives within the indigenous spiritual traditions of Taos, New Mexico. And, she has spent the past several years sitting in the presence of the great Christian mystics - or so it seems. As a translator of the works of St. John of the Cross, Theresa of Avila, Our Lady of Guadalupe, the archangel Michael, St. Francis of Assisi, and Hildegard of Bingen, Starr immersed herself in their essence, and found herself forever altered. She brings a rare breadth of understanding to their teachings, and now brings their message of wisdom, comfort, empowerment, and grace to people of all spiritual traditions. She echoes their familiar words, "Not my will but thine," "Be present," and "Open your heart," and infuses them with the sensitivity and perspective of a gifted modern-day teacher. This interview is an opportunity to be inspired along with her, to hear stories of the ancient visionaries, and be "plunged into this delicious body of water, and surrounded and immersed in the teachings and the flavor and the quality of each of these beings."
