Braiding Sweetgrass Book Discussion (Online)


Please join our sponsored spirituality centers via Zoom for an evening of discussion and reflection as we immerse ourselves in the book Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer. Published in 2013, this beautiful and impactful book continues to gain readers and awaken ecological consciousness. Kimmerer draws on her own life as an indigenous scientist, reminding us of the lessons and gifts that other living beings—including plants and animals—offer to us all. She invites us into reciprocal relationship with the natural world and reminds us that nature loves us in return.
