Author, CARAVAN OF NO DESPAIR: A Memoir of Loss & Transformation

Mirabai Starr writes fiction, creative non-fiction and contemporary translations of sacred literature. She teaches Philosophy and World Religions at the University of New Mexico-Taos and teaches and speaks widely on contemplative practice and inter-spiritual dialog. A certified bereavement counselor, Mirabai helps mourners harness the transformational power of loss.

She has received critical acclaim for her revolutionary new translations of "Dark Night of the Soul" by Spanish mystic St. John of the Cross, "The Interior Castle" and "The Book of My Life," by St. Teresa of Avila, and "The Showings" of Julian of Norwich. She is the author of the six-volume Sounds True series, “Contemplations & Living Wisdom,” and contributing author to "Living Fully, Dying Well: Reflecting on Death to Find Your Life’s Meaning."

Her poetry collection, "Mother of God Similar to Fire," is a collaboration with iconographer, William Hart McNichols.

"God of Love: A Guide to the Heart of Judaism, Christianity and Islam," positions Mirabai at the vanguard of the emerging “Interspiritual Movement.”
