Book Discussion: Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times by Katherine May

March 27 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Facilitator: Laura Ward, LMFT, FT

Date: Wednesday, March 27

Time: 5:30-7:00pm

Held via Zoom

Laura Ward will facilitate an interactive discussion of the book, Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times, by Katherine May. A moving personal narrative shot through with lessons from literature, mythology, and the natural world, May’s story offers instruction on the transformative power of rest and retreat. May models an active acceptance of sadness and finds nourishment in deep retreat, joy in the hushed beauty of winter, and encouragement in understanding life as cyclical, not linear. Each participant will receive a free copy of the book, courtesy of Hospicare. Indicate on the registration form if you will be picking up a copy, and it will be made available for you at Hospicare, 172 E. King Road, Ithaca during regular business hours (8:30am-4:30pm). If you are unable to come in to get your book, please send an email to the address below and we will make other arrangements.

Registration is required by March 11th and there is no cost. Use the form below. For more information contact the Bereavement staff via email at or phone (607) 272-0212. Login details will be provided after registration.
