The Spirit of the Glacier Speaks: Ancestral Teachings of the Andean World for the Time of Natural Disorder (Paperback)
In the face of the climate change crisis, what if technology is not what rescues us, but rather a radical transformation of our culture?
Could it be that the wisdom we need to reinvent our culture has existed for hundreds of years—like the wisdom that belongs to the Indigenous Andean people, who live in union with Mother Earth still today?
If this is true, how do we learn to remake our culture into one that reverses climate change and sets us on a more responsible path?
In his third book—and his only volume to focus solely on Andean wisdom—healer and ceremonial leader Arkan Lushwala reintroduces us to the ancient ideas of Andean culture so that we can see modern problems in a more effective light. Justice, equity, nourishment, mental well-being, land stewardship, and more can be re-envisioned to help us accomplish true, lasting environmental protection and personal well-being.
Transforming ourselves and our culture will require a complete recalibration of our minds. Our values, our beliefs, our ways of nourishing ourselves, and even our language must change if we are to confront the climate emergency, restore Mother Earth, and redefine human happiness.
We are survivors of a damaged time. But the Andean people believe that a new time has arrived. The Spirit of the Glacier Speaks provides an opportunity to embrace this time and embody a more sustainable culture.
