Hermitage—Personal Retreat

A place for refreshment

Come to me all you who are weary and find life burdensome, and I will refresh you.

-Matthew 11:28

What is Hermitage?

Hermitage is an ancient concept common to many cultures. The experience of hermitage – personal retreat – is gaining popularity as people recognize the need to take time for physical, mental and spiritual renewal.
