Pilgrimage is a meaningful journey to a sacred place. It provides the opportunity to step out of the non-stop busy live, to seek a time of quiet and reflection. It gives us the chance to ‘walk through’ those issues that we have on our minds, whatever they might be. It is a time of simply ‘being’ rather than always ‘doing’.
Pilgrimage can also be a highly sociable activity, allowing us to enjoy the company of others we meet on the road. It gives us the chance to re-energise mentally, physical and spiritually. And it allows us to reconnect with the natural world as well as to refresh our faith or seek spiritual direction.
