About the Author
Author and visual artist Pegi Eyers writes about sacred land, indigenous mind and the holistic principles of sustainable living. She is a member of the Celtic mtDNA-based Helena Clan, with more recent roots connecting her to the mythic arts and pagan traditions of both England and Scotland. She lives in the countryside on the outskirts of Peterborough, Canada on a hilltop with views reaching for miles in all directions. **Stone Circle Press** www.stonecirclepress.com........................ "Ancient Spirit Rising: Reclaiming Your Roots & Restoring Earth Community by award-winning author Pegi Eyers is an amazing read. This book makes me want to be a better human being, and to answer the question, ‘Am I who my Ancestors worked so hard for me to be?’ with a resounding YES! Ancient Spirit Rising is a fine guide for this process, a book for our troubled times, and a balm for the reader. Thank you Pegi Eyers for Ancient Spirit Rising ~ hands raised to you.” Shelagh Rogers, Broadcast-Journalist, CBC’s The Next Chapter, Officer of the Order of Canada, Chancellor of the University of Victoria

Eyers topics include the European diaspora, the initial European land grab on Turtle Island (all the land from Baffin Island to the tip of South America), Indigenous Knowledge, Idle No-More. She offers strategies for “rewilding” our thinking so as to create a sustainable future. This may lead us away from capitalism. I’m sure she would be in tune with Naomi Klein’s "This Changes Everything".
Eyers reminds the reader that non-natives have been so self-centered that they have forgotten that they survived at all on Turtle Island because of the generosity and knowledge of indigenous people. As personal example, she tells us that in 1832, her 3rd great grandmother was rescued - from the water when she was a baby after the boat she was in capsized – by a Chippewa (Ojibway) man near Orillia, Ontario, Canada.
Pegi Eyers has made an important contribution to the discussion on race and the survival of our “ethnosphere” – a term introduced by Wade Davis in “The Wayfinders”. Much can be done to rectify injustices - both past and, shockingly, present - and she offers us alternatives. She has given us much to contemplate.
