Ambling about the grounds of French Lick Resort, I reflected on the importance and meaning of rest. On this misty, gray morning I wasn’t the only one. Families hustled through the lobby, lugging their bags and sipping coffee on their way to the car. Groups of friends gathered around the ornamental tables and squishy couches recounting the events of the previous night. Couples lounged near the cafe to eat their late morning breakfast. Numerous reasons brought each guest there, but there was a constant undercurrent behind those reasons: escape.

“Spiritual change is an ongoing quest,” she adds.
