Do you want a deeper relationship with the Divine? Holy Rebels is the go-to podcast for spiritual seekers and modern mystics who seek the sacred in all things. 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. We explore luminaries such as Francis of Assisi and Teresa of Avila, and discover practical spirituality with trailblazers like Dorothy Day and Thomas Merton. We uncover cultural treasures like The Book of Kells and Song of Songs, and visit sacred sites such as Chartres Cathedral and the Isle of Iona. Host Nina Hirlaender OFS is a Franciscan sister, spiritual director and founder of Dancing Spirit Tours. Known for her one-of-a-kind, immersive storytelling, Nina reveals why spirituality isn’t obscure ‘woo-woo’ from an archaic past but a powerful source of wisdom for navigating life today. So if you're ready to become a holy rebel on this adventure into mysticism - let's go!
