Katherine May is the author of the beautiful book, Wintering: The Power or Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times (2020). The book looks deeper into the power and wisdom of retreating and repairing when we find ourselves in life’s dark seasons.

This timely book has captured the mood of the moment, as people everywhere struggle to cope and yearn for hope and the light at the end of the tunnel after a very difficult year.

Katherine will be interviewed by Mari Kennedy, who runs Celtic Wheel festivals and retreats on the West Coast of Ireland. Mari discovered the wisdom of the Celtic Wheel from her dying father and has since reconnected to its power to help her make sense of challenges and loss.

Waterstones says, ‘Wintering is a poignant and comforting meditation on the fallow periods of life, times when we must retreat to care for and repair ourselves. Katherine May thoughtfully shows us how to come through these times with the wisdom of knowing that, like the seasons, our winters and summers are the ebb and flow of life.’

Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love and Big Magic, describes Wintering as being, ‘Every bit as beautiful and healing as the season itself.’
