Daniel Thorson Went on a 75-Day Retreat and Missed the Pandemic

- Inside Edition Staff

Daniel Thorson went on a solo meditation retreat for 75 days in a small Vermont cabin, cut off from the outside world without phone, internet, or contact with others. While Thorson, a practicing Buddhist, spent his time in isolation meditating, he had no clue about the major changes going on in the outside world. He missed the majority of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the start of protests following George Floyd’s death. When he left the retreat, he tweeted “Did I miss anything?”
