No matter your religious or non-religious background, Wild Mercy is a book that is for all (men and women) who are trying to find their way by embracing the feminine aspects of life in this dominantly patriarchal and masculine world. This book is essential in not only finding yourself, but connecting with the feminine in order to find peace, love, creativity, ect. within yourself and be filled with passion and compassion.
Mirabai Starr introduces feminine mystics, saints, and goddesses from across the globe and religions to the reader, bringing you through their journey and helps you realize that you don’t need a spiritual figure-head in order to connect to God, the Holy One or to Mother Earth. No matter how we choose to live and celebrate, we have that freedom and no one can take that away from us. We find the light within ourselves, even through our darkest times. Even through our tragedies, we may find our purpose through the grief and pain.
Wild Mercy gives you a different perspective of life and the religions we are so accustomed to by sharing the wisdom of feminine mysticism in a way that is down-to-earth and has you reflect internally, bringing you to the present and guiding you through territory that may be unfamiliar, but longed for. Starr reveals what is buried in our hearts and encourages us to embrace the journey in all that makes us human while also sending love and healing out into the world.
For some, this may be a book that you would think about skipping and never giving a try. I, at first, was skeptical about reading this book and do not regret for one second reading each and every page thoughtfully and intensely while also taking the time to do each of the deepening activities at the end of each chapter. This book was what I needed and has started a change in me that was long overdue. I hope it will do the same for you.
