In this carefully curated selection of everyday reflections, Richard
Wagamese found lessons in both the mundane and sublime as he mused
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 perhaps
Richard Wagamese's most personal volume to date. Honest, evocative
and articulate, he explored the various manifestations of grief,
joy, recovery, beauty, gratitude, physicality and spirituality--concepts
many find hard to express. But for Wagamese, spirituality was
multifaceted. Within these pages, readers will find hard-won and
concrete wisdom on how to feel the joy in the everyday things.
Wagamese did not seek to be a teacher or guru, but these observations
made along his own journey to become, as he says, "a spiritual
bad-ass," make inspiring reading. Within these pages, readers
will find hard-won and concrete wisdom.
