Cultivate a Resilient Heart in Times of Suffering
Seven hundred years ago, a woman named Julian of Norwich lived through circumstances closely resembling what we’re experiencing today…
During the Black Death, the deadliest pandemic in human history, one in three people died across the globe. Julian endured terrible loss, and it is likely that both her husband and at least one child succumbed to the disease.
Why should we care about Julian in 2020? Because, despite all the sadness and grief she experienced, she was radically optimistic.
Her insights are as relevant today as they were then. And what she discovered can help you live through these difficult times with hope, courage, and a resilient heart.
On Thursday, November 5, mystic scholar Mirabai Starr and spiritual pioneer Matthew Fox will guide you through Julian’s revelations and how they can help you cope today with the illness, greed, corruption, apathy, and racism that permeate our world.
In this special 60-minute free online event, you’ll discover:
- What it means to be “oned” to God and connected to divine love
- Julian’s deductive rationale on why God is feminine and is not an avenging, wrathful God
- The reason a thanksgiving prayer transforms our gratitude into compassionate action
- How suffering can be a path to finding joy
- Why the first duty of the soul is to “reverently marvel” and to grow from that awareness to actions of compassion and justice making
Discover how to find joy again after experiencing sorrow and brokenness
Julian learned that it all came down to love. Not the fleeting kind experienced by human beings, but by the divine kind, a supreme power that encompasses everything.
She also maintained that suffering is not punitive, and that while suffering is only “for a time,” joy endures.
You’ll come away knowing that despite our past and present sufferings in a turbulent, violent world in which many are struggling and losing hope, Julian’s wisdom resonates across the ages, as reassuring and as imperative today as it was in 1373: All shall be well.
In Cultivate a Resilient Heart in Times of Suffering: Finding Hope, Courage & Joy in the Truth-Telling Teachings of Julian of Norwich, you’ll delve into the life of Julian of Norwich, a survivor of the “Black Death,” and see how the transformational power of loss and a deep love of nature can open the gates of our hearts and lead us to liberation and redemption.
