A pilgrimage is a ritual journey with a hallowed purpose.
Every step along the way has meaning.
The pilgrim knows that life giving challenges will emerge.
A pilgrimage is not a vacation; it is a transformational journey during which significant change takes place.
New insights are given. Deeper understanding is attained. New and old places in the heart are visited. Blessings are received and healing takes place. On return from the pilgrimage, life is seen with different eyes. Nothing will ever be quite the same again.
~Macrina Wiederkehr, Behold Your Life, p. 11 ~
What is a Contemplative Celtic Christian Pilgrimage?
A 10-day adventure in what the Celtic Christians call "Thin Places" -where the veil between heaven and earth is very thin. Like Jacob's experience of God's encounter on his pilgrimage (Genesis 28: 10-22), where he exclaimed, "Surely the Lord was in this place, and I was unaware of it."
You will be given guiding questions, scriptures, prayers for your times of solitude, silence, and contemplation. You'll hear the historical and legendary stories of the Celtic Saints who experienced God in these sacred places. We will share stories, delicious gourmet meals, laughter, and even tears as we receive the gifts of new friendships.
Come Journey with us on this life-changing embodied adventure for the soul.
