Mindful U Episode 87. Spring Washam: Ayahuasca’s Accelerated Earth School
Spring Washam “clocks in” at a job many of us here at Naropa day-dream about: Hosting entheogenic plant-healing ceremonies at a retreat space in Costa Rica. This episode is a colorful glimpse into her world of combining meditation, detoxifying nutrition, integrative practices, and sacred plant medicine in what she calls “accelerated earth school”.
Spring is the author of two books, A Fierce Heart: Finding Strength, Courage and Wisdom in Any Moment and her newest book, The Spirit of Harriet Tubman: Awakening from the Underground. She is a a pioneer for meditation & mindfulness in diverse communities and is one of the founding teachers at the East Bay Meditation Center, located in downtown Oakland, CA. She also studied meditation under renowned teacher Jack Cornfield and now has the same spirited impact with her own teachings.
Spring’s website is rich with both audio & video teachings and I highly recommend checking it out. You will also find a range of remote and in-person group classes & retreats.
