Grief as Spiritual Practice, With Mirabai Starr
Wednesday, January 27, 2016
On the same day that Mirabai’s first book arrived, policemen also arrived at her door with the heart-shattering news that her young daughter had died. Ironically, the book was a translation of Dark Night of the Soul by St. John of the Cross. Based on her new memoir Caravan of No Despair, Mirabai shares how she moved through the annihilating fire of grief into the complete unknown—when all spiritual practices had dried up—and back to the hearth of love.
