Although the subtitle indicates that this guide includes "spiritual" retreats, all of the centers detailed here are Christian; Zen Buddhist and yoga centers are not discussed here. Most of the entries are Catholic (though open to retreatants of other faiths), with a few other traditions, such as Eastern Orthodox and Quaker, making cameo appearances. But there's still great variety in this volume: accommodations range from the truly monastic to the hotel-like, and the centers boast varying levels of spiritual guidance on site. Don't leave home without it.
