Description:

Though greatly influenced by modern teachers of Eastern spirituality such as Ram Dass, Mirabai Starr has spent her life responding to the call to honor the diversity and celebrate the unity between all paths that lead us home to love. Best known for her translations of the Spanish mystics, inGod of LoveStarr explores the spiritual roots of Western religion. She provides not only an excellent introduction to the basic beliefs, scriptures, and practices of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, but also a new emerging context called InterSpiritual with which to understand our religiously pluralistic world. Unlike its precursor movement, "interfaith," which is largely focused on cooperation between religious institutions, an "interspiritual" approach is one that tends to the personal and spiritual dimensions of religion. An interspiritual approach sees and participates in the common roots found in all religious expression.Author of critically acclaimed new translations of St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila,Mirabai Starruses fresh, lyrical language to help make timeless wisdom accessible to a contemporary circle of seekers. As a teenager, Starr lived at the Lama Foundation, an intentional spiritual community that has honored all the world’s faith traditions since its inception in 1967. Starr has been an adjunct professor of philosophy and world religions at the University of New Mexico–Taos since 1993. Her emphasis is on making connections between the perennial teachings found at the heart of all the world’s spiritual paths. Starr speaks and teaches nationally and internationally.
