Abstract

Feelings of removal from, and connection to, everyday life, are central to much of the ‘therapeutic landscapes’ literature, and to understanding of what makes ‘therapeutic landscapes’ ‘therapeutic’. This paper develops understanding of the relationship between the everyday and ‘therapeutic landscape’ experiences, by exploring the origins of feelings of removal and connection. Data collected through a phenomenological approach (fieldwork sites: Buddhist meditation retreats, and non-Buddhist walking groups and conservation volunteering groups), targeted at capturing highly detailed information, demonstrates that both feelings of removal from, and connection to, the everyday, are bound-up with the everyday itself, with who we are and where we come from, and moreover, that these feelings exist alongside one another.
