Wintering Overview

Wintering, by Katherine May, is subtitled “The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times.” The book consists of a series of contemplations on what it means to be in a period of loss, uncertainty, or transformation. Those contemplations are metaphorically paralleled with explorations of what it means to encounter, and live through, winter – the literal, weather-defined experience of more cold and less light. The book also considers themes involving the inevitability of change, and the experience of parenting as a trigger for the development of insight into the self, into other people, and into life in general.
