Event Description

Come to Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) for a book reading, discussion and signing with author Leah Rampy, PhD, prior to her presentations at Spirituality in the 21st Century. Leah’s book, Earth & Soul: Reconnecting amid Climate Chaos, was just released in February. In the midst of accelerating climate devastation and an uncertain future, Leah’s new book calls us to renew a deep and personal relationship with Earth. Leah faces directly into the devastation of climate chaos and biodiversity loss while leading her readers on a soul journey into grief and loss to also claim the beauty, joy and possibilities available when we reconnect with Earth. She presents compelling personal experiences and engagingly lyrical stories of whales, cedars and sparrows so that we can see the necessity and urgency of learning from the wisdom of our kin in the natural world. Leah writes at the intersection of spirituality, ecology and story, illuminating a path to reweaving nature and soul. Under her deft guidance, the beauty and genius of this sacred world unfolds before us. Even now—when the world as we knew it is ending and a new story lies beyond what we can envision—we may live fully alive and lay stepping stones toward a diverse and vibrant world of oneness and mutual flourishing. Come listen to Leah read from Earth & Soul and participate in a discussion about the book. Feel free to bring your own copy for signing, and copies also will be available for purchase. A free-will offering will be accepted. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at or 319-395-6700.
