Review:

If the idea of two weeks spent shooting rapids, trekking in Nepal, or even fighting the crowds at Disney World sounds like work rather than vacation, consider instead a holiday for the soul. All across the United States, monasteries, abbeys, and retreats--both religious and nonsectarian--offer travelers respite from the world and a chance to refresh the body and renew the spirit. In Sanctuaries: The Northeast, Marcia and Jack Kelly offer a choice of more than 300 places where refuge, peace, and tranquility are the order of the day. Each entry includes historical background on the establishment, plus a description of the physical surroundings, accommodations and spiritual activities. This particular volume covers sanctuaries in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

From the Inside Flap:
