Past, Present, Future

Stories that Haunt


Dr. Ian Prattis

Past, Present, Future is a testament to the sacred interconnectedness and interdependence of humans, our community, nature, the elements and the animal kingdom. It is these relationships that enable us to survive, thrive, heal and grow. Yet there is an underlying message that these very relationships can become fragile and worn, if we become complacent and fail to nourish and tend to them. - Germaine De Peralta, Journalist / Reiki Master Teacher


Note from the Author: “I wrote PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE because I had to… I had a sense of reciprocity about what I feel is necessary to heal the world from climate emergency and pandemic. The chapters play their part throughout as a sort of call and response meter that leans on kinship and community rather than corporate greed. The chapters become as seeds in the mind of the reader, so my work cannot be buried or lost. There is a strong emphasis on Indigenous Wisdom that pulls chapters together while displaying how easy it is to fall into destruction.” – Dr. Ian Prattis
