Geoffrey Gerard's guide to Nearly 200 guest houses, monasteries, convents, Buddhist and other retreat houses has proved deservedly popular. It is recommended to all who have felt the need for rest and quiet, or for time to stop and think about life and death. Mr Gerard's interest in retreat houses and spiritual centres led him to visit over a hundred of them throughout Britain. In this new and updated edition, the author begins by discussing what it means to go on retreat and makes useful suggestions on how to prepare for it. The remainder of the book is devoted to individual retreat houses and centres, and the reader benefits from the author's personal experience of many of these houses. Practical information is included, such as how to get there and details of the facilities available, together with brief descriptions of the surroundings and the atmosphere that visitors can expect to find. The book is divided into regions under which the various houses are listed. They are also fully indexed at the end of the book.
