The quiet and seclusion of a monastery, abbey, or retreat center provide the time, space, and conditions for the mind to come to stillness. This volume features 127 such places from many spiritual paths: Catholic, Protestant, Buddhist, Jewish, Hindu, Sufi, Quaker. The places themselves are often beautiful, overlooking the sea, or high in the mountains. Some are mansions given to religious orders, with lovely gardens, some are spare Zen temples, some are simple cabins in the woods. All offer a warm welcome to guests seeking a place apart. Molly O'Neil in the New York Times said "The book...is becoming the Michelin guide of the retreat set."
