Energizing audiences to rise above, find freedom, & change the world
Would you like to book me for a keynote or interview?


For more than 25 years, I’ve been a devoted Buddhist practitioner while remaining open to many different ways of sharing messages of wellness, liberation, and purpose.

Having led hundreds of workshops, courses, trainings, and retreats—both virtually and globally—I experience so much joy in sharing my journey and lessons learned.

My talks are designed to educate, inspire, and support those who are ready to access a deeper truth within themselves. Especially those who have felt marginalized, left behind, or forgotten by their loved ones or society.

“Spring does a phenomenal job presenting these beautiful concepts. Her work in the field shows dedication to her own transformation. It’s a privilege she chooses to teach us on her journey. Keeping it so real.”
