Several years ago I was fortunate to participate in a solo in the Spanish Pyrenees, facilitated by the great organisation Way of Nature, which provided a natural space and opportunity for personal meditation and reflection. It was incredibly reinvigorating, and I plan again to embark on another long overdue solo this summer.
Interestingly, the importance of solitude was a focus of an article by Jill Gleason that I had saved in my pocket, which was written before the outbreak of the pandemic – so is even more resonant now than ever, a link to which I post below.
As summer approaches, I plan to use the opportunity to consciously unconnect to have a true break – and as such I will not be posting here in August. I hope you too have the opportunity to switch off, take a rest and seek some solitude – and return refreshed!
