Does your soul long for an intimate connection with the Divine? Holy Rebels is the podcast for modern mystics who seek the sacred in all things. It’s for contemplatives and spiritual activists who hunger to make sense of a fractured world and to anchor their learning in compassionate action.
Each week, we take a fresh look at the Western mystical tradition—from European shamanism and Celtic Christianity to the Desert Fathers and Black Madonnas. (Intrigued yet?) You’ll meet real-life sages who forged a path that will illuminate your own. We discover luminaries such as Francis of Assisi and Teresa of Avila, and find inspiration in the practical spirituality of trailblazers like Dorothy Day and Thomas Merton. Along the way, we journey to the world’s sacred sites (think Chartres Cathedral, the Isle of Iona, and the Camino de Santiago), and unearth the secrets of cultural treasures like the Book of Kells and the Song of Songs.
Host Nina Hirlaender is a spiritual director and founder of Dancing Spirit Tours. Known for her one-of-a-kind, immersive storytelling, Nina reveals why spirituality isn’t esoteric ‘woo-woo’ from an archaic past, but a powerful well of wisdom for navigating the modern moment. Are you a holy rebel?
