This labyrinth made of Charleston cobblestones and local seashells winds through the grounds of Edisto Island‘s Sea of Peace retreat, welcoming visitors who wish to walk its path. The island retreat, which includes a five-bedroom house, walking trails, and access to the Edisto River, was established in 1994 as a Catholic mission by Dominican sisters Betty Condon and Barbara Hubbard. The sisters invited people of all faiths to explore their spirituality within the refuge surrounded by Lowcountry flora and fauna.

The retreat was originally known as the Sea of Peace House of Prayer, but despite the many people who sought renewal there, the property was sold to new owners in 2012. The buyers kept the name “Sea of Peace” and continue to maintain the property as a retreat center available for rent. Its proximity to Edisto Beach, Botany Bay, and the ACE Basin provides visitors with ample opportunities for reflection, meditation, and a connection with nature.

Reflections on the Sea of Peace


Contributor Susan Klavohn Bryant shares, “This photo was taken at my sister’s coastal retreat on Edisto Island, South Carolina. Now known as Sea of Peace, the property was formerly named Sea of Peace House of Prayer and was a spiritual retreat operated by Dominican nuns. The labyrinth was built with cobblestones from historic Charleston and is still open to the public. The labyrinth is listed on the World-wide Labyrinth Locator and is also mentioned in a book, ‘Spiritual Florida – A guide to retreat centers and religious sites in Florida and nearby’ by Maurico Herreras.”

Thanks for sharing this photo of the labyrinth. I stayed for five days at Sea of Peace in June of 2006 and that was when I was introduced to walking the labyrinth. Now I’ve written about that experience in a memoir and I would love to have permission to use this excellent photo since the one I took lacks clarity. Please let me know if there is more info I need to provide. Thanks for your assistance, Connie Rosser Riddle.
