Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times

To get better at wintering, we need to address our very notion of time. We tend to imagine that our lives are linear, but they are in fact cyclical.

– Katherine May –

Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times

“Wintering is a season in the cold. It is a fallow period in life when you’re cut off from the world, feeing rejected, sidelined, blocked from progress, or cast into the role of an outsider. Perhaps it results from an illness or life event such as bereavement or the birth of a child; perhaps it comes from a humiliation or failure. Perhaps you’re in a period of transition and have temporarily fallen between two worlds.”Katherine May’s poignant and personal book, “Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times,” braids together insights from literature, mythology and the natural world. It makes a compelling case for the transformative power of slowing down and stepping back. Read an excerpt here. { read more }
