Click below to hear Eve’s song ‘Loved’, on this new 10 song CD created to support & deepen practices in mindfulness & compassion.
I hope this finds you well amidst all.
I offer you the work that I began years ago in order to bring myself and others peace – practices in mindfulness and kindness, through dharma talks, discussion, group exercises, music, and poetry – which bear the fruit of insight, self acceptance, and compassionate action. I would be very happy and honored to see and spend time with you at any of the below events.
With many good wishes, Eve

Eve’s voice singing the Dharma… reached me deeper than words have ever been able to reach. The energy I felt was a connectedness to all things. Compassion and letting go resonated deeply though my body… By adding her musical abilities to her toolkit of experience Eve Decker is an insightful Buddhist teacher and talented artist. – Janet Etter, Victoria Insight Center, Canada
Eve’s songs are often just what I need to remind myself of the truth inside. They’ve been a big part of my daily life practice to inspire and open my heart. I love Eve Decker’s music! – James Baraz, founding teacher of Spirit Rock Meditation Center, creator of the Awakening Joy course and author of “Awakening Joy.”
