Join me for a fun evening! I will be signing books and giving a short reading!

About the book: 
“Cultivating a fierce heart is about learning to embrace it all, even the most painful aspects of our life—every experience and all of yourself.”
– Spring Washam

In A Fierce Heart, Spring Washam shares her contemporary, unique interpretation of the Buddha’s 2,500-year-old teachings, with short chapters that get to the heart of mindfulness, wisdom, loving-kindness, and compassion. 

Woven throughout the book are stories from the author’s life, family, and ancestors, along with many soulful, heartfelt stories from all over the world. Washam’s teachings focus on social action, multiculturalism, and youth, making the Dharma welcoming to as large and wide a community as possible. 

Anyone who has suffered will benefit from the life-saving teachings of this charismatic teacher. Her humor, enthusiasm, and energy are a refreshing addition to the pantheon of books on mindfulness.

Spring Washam is a founding member and core teacher at the East Bay Meditation Center, and a well-known meditation and dharma teacher based in Oakland, California.
