The Legacy of “Spiritual Bad-Ass” Richard Wagamese

Acclaimed Indigenous author, Richard Wagamese (1955 – 2017) did not seek to be a teacher or guru, but the honest, evocative observations he made along his own journey to become, as he says, “a spiritual bad-ass”, forged a legacy of wisdom and inspiration sought by many spiritual seekers.
Today’s guest, Rev. McFadyen, reflects on the life and words of teacher and friend, Richard Wagamese.
