About Me

A CALL TO SOLITUDE

Hi, I’m Mayowa. In 2015 I withdrew from the rat race after being signed off work with severe anxiety. I moved from London to Wales to embrace a contemplative life inspired desert spirituality – a way of life embraced by early Christian monks and hermits in the 3rd century. This call to silence, solitude and simplicity has been a turbulent journey as I wrestle to detach from worldly passions and find my true self.

Through this website I hope to share with you my journey of transformation as I embrace this solitary way of living.
