Contemplative Cultural Pilgrimages in Europe
Once- in -a -lifetime journeys through the sacred sites of Europe that have been cherished by seekers of wisdom. Each trip is unique, with a particular focus on the region's art, history, music and literary tradition.
We offer three kinds of trips: ones that focus on spiritual traditions and history, one that are focused on the journey inwards through depth psychology practices, and journeys that weave together sacred and secular heritage
These pilgrimages are designed to both guide us to places that echo with history and to help us go inwards into our own depths as we build a sense of contemplative community. Pilgrims from all traditions are welcome, but please be advised that an essential part of each day's offering will be the experience of contemplative music, poetry and meditation. A practice of meditation or centering prayer is strongly recommended and a comfort with periods of silence is essential. Many of the trips will include moderately strenuous hiking and optional daily yoga practice
