"Seeds of feminine wisdom that have been quietly germinating underground are now breaking through the surface," writes Mirabai Starr. "Women everywhere are rising to the collective call to step up and repair our broken Earth. And we are activating a paradigm shift such as the world has never seen."

From saints and sages, to goddesses and archetypal energies, to contemporary teachers and seekers―you’ll meet women who blazed a path that will illuminate your own.

Mirabai Starr leads us deep into the radiance of the many ways the Goddess reveals herself, illuminating our Path back home.” ―Krishna Das, Kirtan master and author of Chants of a Lifetime and Flow of Grace“I was with Mirabai the day before her daughter Jenny died. Over the years, the intense outpouring of love from her mother’s heart has led Mirabai to the wild mercy she drinks in and shares from all the women mystics, poets, and teachers gathered together in this gorgeous book.
