Three of us have developed a lifestyle of sleeping outdoors almost all the time. It’s something we always try to do, wherever we are. I just sleep on the ground, Tim has built a Gypsy Camp, and Jean-Paul a glass-roofed lean-to. I collected our three stories and put them in a blog post called “Sleeping Out.” It begins like this:

“For a few of us — and I don’t know why so few — sleeping under the night sky is a heart-opening experience. The processes that happen in us when we sleep are as under appreciated as our dreams. The connection we make to the universe during sleep is as important to us as the connection we make to other human beings when we are awake.”
