Living in Baja, it’s easy to forget just how brutal the winter can be on one’s emotions. I recently read a New York Times review of “Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times” in which the author describes “wintering” as “a fallow period in life when you’re cut off from the world, feeling rejected, sidelined, blocked from progress or cast into the role of an outsider...However it arrives, wintering is usually involuntary, lonely and deeply painful.”
Whether you’re going through a divorce or romantic breakup, a job loss or the loss of a parent or close friend, or some other kind of transition that feels like your leaves have fallen off your tree, this might be a good “get under the covers” kind of book to warm your soul. Just know you’re not alone.
P.S. For those of you feeling a little disconnected because of your “wintering,” you have roughly 48 hours days to take advantage of the early-bird pricing for our heralded MEA Online class that begins February 27 and runs for 8-weeks in “digitally intimate” cohorts of eight people. Just use code MEAXDD during checkout to activate the early-bird pricing.
