The stress of the typical American day can be relentless. Monasteries: A Stressed-Out American's Search For Solitude offers a place to get away from it all. For centuries monks have found peace and solitude in monasteries. Now everyone has access to these places of refuge. Your visit to a monastery can be a refreshing time of prayer or valuable time alone.
