What do solitude experiences offer in this increasingly high-speed, technically dependent world? As this book inspiringly reveals, solo quests can provide powerful reconnection with the natural world, the true self, and the great mystery beyond. As Parker Palmer writes in "To Know as We Are Known," "Solitude calls us to confront ourselves...to learn who we really are and what we can rely on."
"Exploring the Power of Solo, Silence, and Solitude" provides theoretical frameworks, guidelines, and activities for facilitators of solo experiences, and also reviews current research. It is rich in professional and personal insights and strategies shared by 22 authors with deep experience in the practice of solo.
