How Others Have Celebrated
This event idea has been used by teachers and librarians to promote reading and writing activities as well as encourage the development of analytical/critical thinking skills. It has been used by counselors and Bible teachers as a unique way to encourage time for introspection. It has even been fodder for humorous commentaries in the media over the years, while inspiring others toward artistic and spiritual pursuits or creating the context for individualized paradigm shifts.
What the Public Should Do
People everywhere are encouraged to use this hermit holiday to take a personalized adventure in solitude. Says Jel, “Discover yourself by journeying within or going off-the-grid. Celebrate the contributions of others who indulged their need to hermit. Whether you seek inner peace, spiritual release or a moment's peace this eight-day week is for you. Our motto: ‘Don’t be a loner alone’.” To know more, visit http://www.nationalhermitweek.org.
