With stories from south central Los Angeles to the jungles of Peru, the deep and honest reflections of A Fierce Heart: Finding Strength, Courage, and Wisdom in Any Moment focus on compassion as the fiercest and most effective response to suffering.
Spring Washam shares her contemporary, unique interpretation of the Buddha’s 2,500-year-old teachings that get to the heart of mindfulness, wisdom, and compassion. Woven throughout the book are stories from the author’s life, family and community, along with soulful and unexpected stories of compassion in action from all over the world. The life-saving techniques of this charismatic teacher are universal; her honesty, enthusiasm, and energy are a balm.
A Fierce Heart will appeal to any student of Buddhism looking for a fresh voice and new stories, as well as young spiritual seekers, and readers who have embraced the emerging generation of spiritual teachers.
