To Be A Pilgrim: Guided Pilgrimage at Launde Abbey

Leader : Sally Welch
Dates : Mon 9 Sep 2019 - Thu 12 Sep 2019
Price : £315.00 - £335.00
Type + Interest :
Description: The word 'pilgrim' is full of adventure - it conjures up images of roads and paths, new places and companions, challenges and surprises.

In this retreat we explore what it means to be a Christian pilgrim and how a pilgrim spirit can transform our lives.  We will learn about the historic context of Christian pilgrimage in Europe and beyond, before venturing further, looking at both the inward and outer journey.  We will reflect on the way in which pilgrimage spirituality helps us to understand better our landscape, ourselves and God, using periods of stillness and silence, as well as activity and discussion.  Two guided pilgrimages will be offered – one half day and one full day.  An ability to walk 4 and 7 miles respectively is essential for these events, but alternative activities will also be available.

Sally Welch is an experienced pilgrim who has undertaken many pilgrimages in the UK and Europe.  She has written books on pilgrimage and its companion the labyrinth, and leads workshops and retreats throughout the country.  She is the Editor of brf New Daylight Bible Reading Notes, and is the Vicar of a Cotswold parish.
