Dreaming a New World:
Mystical Love in Action
Yes, we will be in person!
We will have the privilege of spending our week with two of the worlds mystics in-person at Kanuga — Mirabai Starr & Andrew Harvey — enabling us to go deeper in this work. Join us in, dreaming a new world with all our presenters.
Mirabai is an award-winning author of creative non-fiction and contemporary translations of sacred literature. She teaches and speaks internationally on contemplative practice and inter-spiritual dialog. Her latest book is WILD MERCY: Living the Fierce & Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics. Mirabai is on the 2020 Watkins List of the “100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People of the World.” She lives with her extended family in the mountains of northern New Mexico.
“Our capacity to forgive is our superpower."
– Mirabai Starr
We look forward to exploring all of these topics with Mirabai in-person at Kanuga for our 2022 Dream & Spirituality Conference. (available On-Line as well)
Andrew is Founder & Director of the Institute for Sacred Activism, an international organization focused on inviting concerned people to take up the challenge of our contemporary global crises by becoming inspired, effective, and practical agents of institutional and systemic change, in order to create peace and sustainability. Sacred Activism is a transforming force of compassion-in-action that is born of a fusion of deep spiritual knowledge, courage, love, and passion, with wise radical action in the world.
Andrew was born in south India in 1952, where he lived until he was nine years old. It is this early period that he credits with shaping his sense of the inner unity of all religions and providing him with a permanent and inspiring vision of a world infused with the sacred. He left India to attend private school in England and entered Oxford University in 1970 with a scholarship to study history. At the age of 21, he became the youngest person ever to be awarded a fellowship to All Soul’s College, England’s highest academic honor.
In 1984, Andrew Harvey began a life-long exploration and explication of Rumi and Sufi mysticism in Paris with a group of French Sufis and under the guidance of Eva De Vitray-Meyerovitch, the magnificent translator of Rumi into French. With Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, he founded the Sufi Conferences, which have played a prominent role in uniting Sufis of all persuasions during the past six years. He has close connections with great Sufi teachers in America, Africa, India and Pakistan, and a very clear, comprehensive grasp of the state of modern Sufism in both the west and the east. Andrew has written three books on that subject: The Way of Passion: The Celebration of Rumi and Perfume of the Desert, an anthology of Sufi mysticism.
In 1990, Andrew collaborated with Sogyal Rinpoche and Patrick Gaffney in the writing of the international bestselling book, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. In 1992, he met Father Bede Griffiths in his ashram in south India near where Andrew was born. It was this meeting that helped him synthesize the whole of his mystical explorations and reconcile eastern with western mysticism.
He has written and edited over 30 books. Other honors he has received include the Benjamin Franklin Award and the Mind Body Spirit Award (both for Mary’s Vineyard: Daily Readings, Meditations, and Revelations).
Andrew Harvey has taught at Oxford University, Cornell University, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, The California Institute of Integral Studies, and the University of Creation Spirituality as well as the at various spiritual centers throughout the United States. He was the subject of the 1993 BBC film documentary, The Making of a Modern Mystic and appears also in Rumi Turning Ecstatic, Marion Woodman: Dancing in the Flames, and The Consciousness of the Christ: Reclaiming Jesus for A New Humanity.
