I first came across Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times by Katherine May, when I was going through a difficult time myself. My energy was low and I longed for change. This moment in my life also coincided with the winter months, and the lack of light in the grey winter days added to my low mood.
A friend of mine was going through the recurrence of her cancer, and mentioned the book in her online writing.
Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times by Katherine May is an insightful and thought-provoking book that explores the importance of rest and retreat in difficult times. The author delves into the idea that just as nature goes through a dormant period in the winter, individuals also need time to rest and retreat in order to rejuvenate and come out stronger.
May draws on personal experiences, research and anecdotes to illustrate the benefits of taking time to slow down and recharge. The writing is honest and relatable, making the book easy to connect with.
The book is a timely reminder that taking care of ourselves is not only important, but essential, and it can be a powerful tool for coping with life's challenges.
Overall, Wintering is a must-read for anyone looking to better understand the power of rest and retreat in their own lives.Available on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/407NuSh
