“Solitude can become one of our biggest teachers and tools if we truly want to know ourselves completely,” WILLOW says, continuing, “I think solitude can be scary for humans sometimes. There is so much space to remember and reflect on things that may be really painful for us. But in my experience, when we open ourselves to this specific flavor of groundlessness, we begin to see the inner workings of our minds and hearts in so many beautiful ways that allow us to interact with life with more honesty and presence.”
WILLOW has a new album in the works and a “new direction” planned for 2024, so stay tuned.
