Spring Washam, cofounder of East Bay Meditation Center and teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center, talks about her work making mediatation accessible to women of color, LBT and low-income women. Audio: 15:29
Spring Washam is hosting two Great Turning events New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. She writes:

"The great turning is happening NOW as we turn towards a life sustaining model of community, generosity and interconnectedness. We have enormous power and our hearts songs are weaving a new tapestry in the collective consciousness of our human family. Gaia is our home. It’s time we reclaim the earth as our sacred altar."

In this interview with Syra Smith, she talks about her philosophy, her work in mediatation and spirituality, the purpose of the events and how they came together. The Great Turning is a benefit for The Sujata Project, which will provide accessible retreats for low-income Bay Area women.
