Buddhadharma : Summer 2006
summer 2006| 10 |buddhadharma Helping these people has to be the starting point and focus of any meaning- ful Buddhist practice for Americans. It should also be the focus of Buddhadhar- ma. By saving them, we just might save ourselves. Peter Lazzaro Bound Brook, N.J. It was timely that I purchased my first issue of Buddhadharma (Winter 2005) just a week or so before going on my annual solitary retreat in a hermitage cabin run by an order of Franciscan nuns. In it was Marshall Glickman’s article on solitary retreats, which I read both before I left and while I was on retreat. I appreci- ated his insights on the benefits and pit- falls of such endeavors. While I have attended many group retreats of various kinds over the years, this was only my third solitary retreat. I find that if I can approach solitary retreats without an expectation of earth- shattering insights, but instead use them as a time to slow down, pay attention to my body rhythms, meditate, journal, and exercise without expectations, they can be extremely rich and rewarding. Of course, I remain open to insights, but sim- ply accept them as they come. I thank Marshall Glickman for put- ting into words the importance of this activity in our daily lives. And thank you to Buddhadharma for making space to describe this important activity. Mark Litzow, M.D. Rochester, Minn.
