In this carefully curated selection of meditations, 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 Creator. Embers is perhaps Richard Wagamese’s most personal volume. Honest, evocative and articulate, he explored the various manifestations of stillness, harmony, trust, reverence, gratitude and joy.
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.
Richard Wagamese (1955-2017), an Ojibway from the Wabaseemoong First Nation in northern Ontario, was recognized as one of Canada’s Foremost First Nations authors and story tellers.

His final book, Embers (2016), a collection of Ojibway meditations, was shortlisted for a BC Book Prize.
