“Learning from First Nations in Canada brings great responsibility,” says local author Pegi Eyers. With her new book Ancient Spirit Rising: Reclaiming Your Roots & Restoring Earth Community she delves into developing good intercultural competency skills, charting the route to reconciliation, and the many pathways to earth spirituality for all people. From three years of research Ancient Spirit Rising digs deep, and provides clear and concise guidelines to important questions. What can we do to right the wrongs of history? What is our responsibility in the nation-to-nation relationship that built this country? What can we do to effectively make change?
Meet author Pegi Eyers, a leader in the Ancestral Arts movement at a book signing at Chapters Peterborough this Saturday, November 19 from 1 – 4 pm. On her quest to discover the truth about the Settler/First Nations divide, Pegi’s strong bonds to the Kawartha landscape provided the anchor for her thinking and writing process. She sees herself as part of a new generation of Canadians who are “awake and aware,” and finding ways to take on the activist role. Since the era preceding Idle No More her own work in social justice has steadily increased, and one of her many projects maintaining the Allies in Solidarity with First Nations (Canada) group on Facebook has been very rewarding.
In response to recent directives from First Nations Elders “to return to our own Indigenous Knowledge,” Pegi points out that our own ethnocultural recovery and spiritual practice can go hand-in-hand with social justice work and earth remediation. For those who hear the “call of the wild” or are yearning for a more intimate relationship with nature, today’s exciting movements in animism, rewilding, voluntary simplicity, slow food, eco-living and sustainable community are all outlined in Ancient Spirit Rising.
An all-inclusive blend of cultural studies, social commentary, ecospirituality and practices for recovering the Old Ways, Ancient Spirit Rising is a compendium for change! Join the author Pegi Eyers for this exciting book launch and signing at Chapters Peterborough this Saturday from 1 – 4.
Pegi Eyers is the author of "Ancient Spirit Rising: Reclaiming Your Roots & Restoring Earth Community," an award-winning book that explores strategies for intercultural competency, healing our relationships with Turtle Island First Nations, decolonization, recovering an ecocentric worldview, rewilding, creating a sustainable future and reclaiming peaceful co-existence in Earth Community.
