About the Original Book:
When her husband fell ill, her own abdominal pains worsened, and her son became too anxious to go to school, May had to work through an emotional load of fear, uncertainty, and inadequacy. Her winter, her season of being in the cold, had come. Looking to nature—to trees and dormice and reindeer—she realized that only humans resisted winter. Every other living organism recognized the seasonal changes and hunkered down.
Part memoir and part self-help, Wintering is an invitation to embrace sadness, loneliness, despair, failure, pain, difficult transitions, and all the other unpleasant challenges that are an inevitable part of life. The only way through the cold and darkness of our personal winters, May observes, is to let it in, feel it, and let it guide us to what we need.
