Press Release for Trailing Sky Six Feathers:

Indiana Jones meets The Buddha

Memoir of spiritual exploration calls for self-discovery and conservation

OTTAWA, ONTARIO - Are social issues such as climate change, financial collapse and nuclear technology making civilization vulnerable to extinction? Professor, scholar and world traveler, Ian Prattis believes that our culture needs to awaken spiritually in order to ensure survival.

"Our world has become an unpredictable beast that we fail to work with intelligently," Prattis said. "We have to take back control of ourselves and this is a spiritual matter."

Prattis' new book "Trailing Sky Six Feathers" illuminates issues that he believes will impact the human race for generations. The book follows him on his spiritual journey as he travels across the globe throughout the course of two lifetimes.

"Trailing Sky Six Feathers caps my long-term fascination with consciousness," Prattis said. "My past life memories are now allowed to collide head on with the present."
