November 29 - Wendy Farrow will present on Spring Washam's book, A Fierce Heart: Finding Strength, Courage, and Wisdom in Any Moment. Spring's teacher, Jack Kornfield, describes her book as a "personal tale that is also universal" as she "leads us through the trials and revelations of her own life to show in intimate and personal ways how the mud we are given can give birth to the lotus." The book has been described as wise and inspiring medicine for those who want to transform trauma and/or suffering into beautiful gifts.

Upcoming schedule:
December 6: "Psychedelics and Meditation"--Wendy Farrow, Jim Garrido, and Bo Fried
December 13: Kris Grapes--"Self Metta"
