Stress and burnout are epidemic in America today.

Most working adults rarely take breaks during work, often working through lunch, and through nights and weekends too. One survey by Morar Consulting found that 40 percent of office workers in the United States and Canada feel burned out.

These words describe The Quiet Place NC, a spiritual retreat center where weary souls find rest, solace, and a touch from God.
