Sophia, Mother Earth, Mary the Mother of God, Quan Yin, The Great Mother – these and many more are names for the Divine Feminine. The need for healing, compassion, connection, unity, balance, and empathy are bringing many of us to seek solace and wisdom from the Feminine Divine. Mirabai’s book Wild Mercy shares her own story and stories from the women mystics to give us access to this eternal and treasured source of knowledge and comfort.
