The reference to the desert as the place to go to become is spreading to many disciplines, and here is a wonderful example from the field of Organization Development:

"It is hard to imagine making any important change in life without an inward journey. Think of Christ going into the desert for forty days. It was in the desert that he dealt with his own doubts and temptations and from which he emerged having chosen his freedom and his destiny. It is in our own internal deserts that we remember what really matters. It is on the inward journey, taken over time, that we develop the capacity for intimacy with ourselves and with others, with the environment, and with the world. It is deciding that we are deep human beings with inner lives that defines who we are and brings our ideals back into focus."

(Peter Block, The Answer to How is Yes: Acting on What Matters, p. 76)
