Exciting new workshop from Mirabai Starr on Shift. The intro is free. For me, Kundalini is the raw energy behind each goddess figure, the transformative life energy that resides in us all and which we experience fully once its power is awakened within. I call it The Beloved Within. It is who we are.
Beloved Friends and Family,
Im entering the Goddess Zone, and its transfiguring me.
Who knew when I said YES to an invitation from the Shift Network to offer a course on the goddesses of the myriad spiritual traditions that the goddesses would in turn say YES to me and come pouring into my life, making trouble and making beauty, clearing things away and shoring things up? Not I.
My thing has always been the mystics – especially the feminine mystics – across the religious spectrum. But when I opened myself to these disembodied beings, such as Kali and Durga, Tara and Kwan Yin, Gaia and Ixchel, Persephone and Sophia, they revealed themselves as intimate partners on my own spiritual journey and I realized they have been with me all along. This is a profoundly embodied experience. No surprise, since that is the nature of the scared feminine: to dwell in the cells of our own bodies and infuse our incarnational experience.
So, I am having a ridiculously good time exploring and researching them and uncovering their stories in preparation for this new class.
Id like to invite you to join me for an upcoming FREE virtual workshop on Saturday, May 6 (with an encore a few days later), called Receiving the Gifts of the Goddesses: How to Connect to the Powers of the Sacred Feminine and Awaken to Greater Love, Liberation & Beauty.
My hope is that you will discover that this pantheon lives inside you too and that you have access to them as a kind of living council of sages to guide you in navigating the waters of your own life and stepping up to be of service in the world.
Her time is now.

During this special hour, you’ll discover how to:
Allow the Goddesses to transform your consciousness and open you to direct mystical experiences that bring wisdom
Move beyond overwhelm and stress to experience clarity, hope, spaciousness — and even fun!
Dissolve the sense of separation between you and God as you begin to see the Divine manifesting in your own body
Please join me for this powerful reclamation of the Sacred Feminine. It will be enlivening, ecstatic and soul-nourishing!
And it’s FREE to attend, but you’ll need to register here: https://shiftnetwork.isrefer.com/go/ggMS/Mirabaistarr/
P.S. During Receiving the Gifts of the Goddesses: How to Connect to the Powers of the Sacred Feminine and Awaken to Greater Love, Liberation & Beauty, I'll help you tap into the powerful Goddess energies stirring within you so you can access the profound guidance, beauty and love they have to share with you.
As a registered participant, you’ll receive a downloadable audio of the presentation. Save your space here for this free virtual event:
