I hope this finds you well amidst all.
I continue to offer the work that I began years ago in order to bring myself and others some peace – a combination of singing and dharma (which for me boils down to practices in mindfulness and kindness – and which bear the fruit of insight, self acceptance, and compassionate action). If this particular combination of offerings (song and dharma practice) speaks to you at this time, I would be so happy and honored to see you at any of the below events.
My upcoming events are grouped below according to content. There are drop in events, classes, events for families, and a weeklong retreat on transforming the judgmental mind. Take a look and let me know if anything here speaks to you – again, I would love to see, sing, and practice with you!
With many warm 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.”
