Ian Prattis, Zen Teacher, Professor Emeritus, peace and environmental
activist, was born in the UK. He has spent much of his life living and teaching in Canada.
His moving and eye-opening books are a memorable experience for anyone who
enjoys reading about primordial tendencies. Beneath the polished urban facade remains a part of human nature that few want to acknowledge, either due to fear or simply because it is easier to deny the basic instincts that have kept us alive on an unforgiving earth. Prattis bravely goes there in his outstanding literary work.”
