Description

Embers: One Ojibway's Meditations carefully curated selection of everyday reflections where award-winning author Richard Wagamese finds lessons in both the mundane and sublime as he muses on the universe, drawing inspiration from working in the bush--sawing and cutting and stacking wood for winter as well as the smudge ceremony to bring him closer to the Creator. Embers is Richard Wagamese's most personal and thought-provoking volume to date. Honest, evocative and articulate, he explores the various manifestations of grief, joy, recovery, beauty, gratitude, physicality and spirituality--concepts many find hard to express. But for Wagamese, spirituality is multifaceted. Within these pages, readers will find hard-won and concrete wisdom on how to feel the joy in the everyday things. Seven chapters direct readers to specific values such as harmony, trust, reverence, persistence, gratitude, and joy. Full-colour stock photographs are interspersed throughout the chapters. Wagamese does not seek to be a teacher or guru, but these observations made along his own journey make inspiring reading for senior level secondary students and public library adult collection.
