What does it mean to leverage feminine wisdom in today’s world? Last week I had the immense privilege of attending a day-long workshop facilitated by Mirabai Starr on the eve of her book launch for Wild Mercy: Living the Fierce and Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics. Distilling the mystical wisdom of women through the ages, Mirabai led us through a day of exploring some feminine approaches for contemporary challenges.

I began to answer this question at the 2019 annual conference for SDI (Spiritual Directors International), surrounded by spiritual practitioners and leaders from around the world.
