Within these visionary pages, meditation and dharma teacher Spring Washam meets the spirit of one of America's greatest ancestors, Harriet Tubman.

The Spirit of Harriet Tubman, who was called the Moses of her people, is rising again, and we can call forth her spirit to embody incredible strength and unwavering courage. Combining direct transmissions of Harriet's message with insightful explorations of her life and legacy, this extraordinary book gives us support and inspiration to deepen our roots of resilience and become powerful conductors of love and truth in our own lives.

We are in the midst of another civil rights revolution and a movement of the heart is underway. Each chapter of this book examines a different facet of Harriet's prophetic life with teachings on how her lessons can be applied to what is happening in our world today. Whether we need to focus on cultivating supportive practices for ourselves, or on developing skills to engage more broadly with what is unfolding in the larger world, the inspiring story of Harriet Tubman can support us as we respond to this unprecedented time. We can learn how to remain fearless in the face of hatred and confusion. And through Harriet Tubman's guidance, we will learn how to meet the challenges of this moment with a compassionate heart.

Spring's previous works have been praised by Publishers Weekly as "bring[ing] considerable gifts for conveying her vision of personal change and offer[ing] vivid, inspiring testimony to the power of Buddhism." And now, she inspires a new generation of activists to carry her message and her work forward.

Mother Harriet, as an awakened bodhisattva, knows that real freedom is realizing the essence of everything, and to do that, our abolition practice must also be a spiritual practice where we are allying with the unseen world of beings who are working alongside us to get us and everything free. . . . In this text Spring has consented to allow Mother Harriet to speak through her to offer to the world a vital message of hope as well as a call to action. - Lama Rod Owens
