Windhorse Publications have announced the public release of Wild Awake: Alone, Offline and Aware in Nature which is now available as a paperback or an eBook.

Wild Awake will soon be found in UK-based and European Triratna centre bookshops. The book will take a bit longer to emerge in bookshops outside the UK and Europe,  as the book distributors’ release in the US and the Americas is in June.

In Wild Awake, Vajragupta draws on twenty-five years of experience going into nature alone. He recounts how these ‘solitary retreats’ have changed him, how he fell in love with the places he stayed in and the creatures there. It includes a helpful A-Z guide on how to go about your own solitary retreat.

This is a seriously beautiful book (beautiful places and beautiful writing) – and I believe a wise one too. It is grounded in authentic knowledge and experience. Get out there – but take Wild Awake with you.” – Sara Maitland, author of Gossip from the Forest

The author discusses his journey in an interview podcast on Soundcloud – or read it on the Windhorse blog.
