Why make a pilgrimage either secular, religious, or spiritual?

Because of the following reasons:

Healing

Discovery

Connecting

Re-connecting

Closure

Letting Go

New Direction

Inward Focus

Fulfillment

Refocusing

Uncluttering

Simplifying

Groundedness

Remembering

Seeking

Finding

Community

Solitude

Encounters

Opening

Embracing

Wisdom

Self

Others

Endings

Beginnings

Limits

Limitless

Revitalize

Rejuvenate

Just Because

You Have No Idea Why…

 

The motivations are as varied, as individual, and as unique as you. There is no right or wrong explanation just as there is no right or wrong way to “do” or to “have” a pilgrimage. What ever, where ever, and how ever is meaningful–even sacred–to YOU is all that matters.

What are intentions for a pilgrimage that appeal to you? Feel free to share in the comments below. Thanks!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,
