Travel through a garden’s seasons toward healing, reclamation, and wholeness—for us, and for our beloved relative, the EarthTeresa Peterson will join Birchbark Books on Thursday, June 27 at 6:00 p.m. for a discussion of her new book Perennial Ceremony: Lessons and Gifts from a Dakota Garden.

In this rich collection of prose, poetry, and recipes, Teresa Peterson shares how she found refuge from the struggle to reconcile her Christianity and Dakota spirituality, discovering solace and ceremony in communing with the earth. Perennial Ceremony brings us into this relationship, as Peterson guides us through the Dakota seasons to impart lessons from her life as a gardener, gatherer, and lover of the land.

"Equally inspiring for gardeners and cooks and readers who love a good story, Teresa Peterson’s generous-hearted sharing of her spiritual journey through gardening is both nourishing and uplifting. Her tender gleaning of practical, seasonal wisdom invites us to remember a relationship with the land that is ceremony, a life-sustaining, daily communion with creation." —Diane Wilson, author of The Seed Keeper

"Perennial Ceremony is a powerful, necessary gift for our times. Teresa Peterson writes with passionate grace of Dakota practices and teachings that nourish our world and transformed her life. With compassion, humor, wisdom, and courage, she offers a path through the disastrous fires of our own making. A book I'll return to again and again for solace, guidance, delectable recipes, and most of all: inspiration." —Mona Susan Power, author of A Council of Dolls
