Miriam Gabriel (or “Miri”) is a poet and mystic-activist. She is currently in the Consciousness Studies program at Goddard College, studying the relationship between erotic and spiritual modes of living and knowing in the transformation of self and society.
She is an avid proponent of transdisciplinary mixed-media writing, where the writing piece may start from a passionate, “Gnostic calling,” freely spilling into whatever genres or theses that respond to the pressing calling of the piece.
Among the themes that emerge in Miri’s writing are participatory knowledge and organization; mystic underpinnings of social change; fluidity of erotic identity in light of spiritual experiences, including cultural and GLBTQ issues; the myths and shamanic lineages of women; and daily journeying as an Arab-American woman in a full and beautiful relationship with Jeremy Johnson, as they both seek to make “right livelihood” out of doing what they love – writing and speaking and expressing spiritual transformation – and facing perilous and joyous challenges in that vocational process!
You may find Miri touring Spoken-Word venues in her new home state of NY, or you may reach her by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
