Pelican House

This is the second summer I have gone to Pelican House at the Trinity Center in Salter Path, NC. Pelican House is a secluded house by the sea, away from the noise and distraction of everyday life. Most retreats here at Pelican House are silent. Yes, no talking. Yes again, me not talking. I hear your incredulity at this thought but for two summers for the length of a week I have not uttered a word. Being quiet and shutting down the "monkey mind" of daily chatter is essential for getting in touch with your inner peace and wisdom. Oh, and it never hurts that the food is fabulous...
