A Hermitage Offering


Wikipedia describes a hermitage as a type of secluded monastery.  Not too familiar a notion in our busy lifestyle these days.  Do you every dream of fleeing to an ashram in India for a couple months, or pretending you’re Julian of Norwich in a coastal cottage, allowing your contemplative soul to breathe?  Miramar is now offering a special accommodation for long-term sabbatical retreatants.
