“We are all in this together; the healing of our communities and our shared planet earth begins with our own inner healing.”

That is the main message of Aaron William Perry in his new book: “Viriditas: The Great Healing Is Within Our Power”.

The visionary eco-thriller begins in New York City, where the main character, Brigitte Sophia, is being chased through Central Park by sinister paramilitaries who are hell-bent on getting the code Brigitte has just cracked, regarding the artificial depths. intelligence. She is forced to flee to Colorado, abandoning all of her technology so that she cannot be tracked. Along the way, she must trust a strange and enigmatic friend of a friend, who she initially doesn’t like (but you know how love stories are). He takes her to local regenerative farms, wilderness areas, and eventually to the Sustainable Settings Ranch, where he exposes her to new concepts, including permaculture, biodynamics, esotericism, and indigenous and ancient wisdom.

“All of this is just the preparation for the reader, leading up to the third and final part of the story, in which a massive, transformative and hopeful revelation about these dangerous times we are all living together is shared with humanity” . Perry said.

Initially, Brigitte is reluctant to slow down and listen to anything “unscientific,” but slowly, she begins to break down and wake up, becoming the “reader’s guide to understanding what might be possible in all of this unfolding.” which we are participating”. on the planet,” Perry said in a podcast with Brook LeVan, co-founder of Sustainable Settings.

“She is like many of us, disconnected from traditional wisdom,” he said, adding that throughout her journey, she “comes out of urban consciousness and her head goes into her body, into her heart.”

With the survival of the species at stake, Brigitte finds herself on an urgent mission to restore the environment, as the book evolves from a sci-fi/tech thriller to a visionary statement about healing the planet.

“Achieving a future of stewardship, regeneration and sustainability is not just a matter of technological, biological and fintech fixes, but a matter of the human heart, culture and consciousness, that is, our psycho-spiritual well-being,” Perry said of the book message. “The main theme, ultimately, is healing…and love.”

The book combines esoteric, spiritual, and indigenous wisdom with real places and people, like LeVan (a fictional character in the book), who are working on sustainable solutions. It also exposes readers to regenerative and advanced food production techniques.

“There are people working on these workarounds, but they’re very small and very fringe,” LeVan said on the podcast, adding that Perry “brings us to these other possibilities that are active.”

“While friends say this is like science fiction, I’m like, ‘It’s like science fiction, but it’s more like real science,'” Perry said on the podcast. “Science is actually starting to catch up with the esoteric and spiritual traditions that have been around for years and years.”

Perry sees her book as “the culmination of a lifetime of devotion to restoring our planet Earth while doing the hard work of personal healing and growth and the joyful work of creating more resilience within our communities.” Her experience includes sustainable agriculture, energy, finance, business development, and immersion in global history and indigenous cultures.

He is also a co-founder of the Viriditas Society, a new body within the Y on Earth Community Ambassadors Framework, bringing together a global network of “earth keepers” or healers, land stewards, community activists and more. Medieval mystic Hildegard von Bingen coined the term “Viriditas”, which means “the green healing life force of the Divine that flows through the plant kingdom”. The society “is based on humble action, spiritual science, ceremonial practice and the power to come together and celebrate in the fellowship of the community,” Perry said.

Saturday’s book launch includes a sound healing ceremony, following the tradition of how “almost all of our indigenous ancestors understood and worked, prayed, played and experienced the ceremony with music,” Perry said.

Caressa Ayres, who practices sound healing and the Japanese art of healing touch Jin Shin Jyutsu, will lead the ceremony.

“Her voice is angelic, and coupled with the many magical instruments she plays (crystal bowls, drums, chimes, tuning forks, etc.), Caressa provides an immersive experience for people who often report dreamlike states, visions, and other extraordinary . events,” Perry said.

The event will also include a biodynamic soil and water activation ceremony and will discuss how water structuring, ceremony, and vibrational influences enhance soil, as well as how conscious living patterns permeate all of reality.

“Whatever the answers to life’s mysteries, Perry is a visionary futurist who has vast knowledge and real personal experience in promoting personal and social change,” wrote Robert Cloninger, physician and author of “Feeling Good: The Science of Well-Being”, in praise of Perry’s book. “Her vivid and captivating novel of his turns the path of self-transcendence into an exciting journey filled with many dangerous and unexpected encounters.”
