I invite you to join me on my Caminos wherever you are and whatever your situation. You don’t have to leave home to go on pilgrimage. This blog muses on the four journeys I took through Spain and France and accompanies my book A Contemplative Camino: Four Ways to Stillness, Silence and Solitude. While the blog draws from the book it is in an ongoing dialogue between my life on the Camino and my life at home.
Pilgrims go on a journey, leaving what is known behind in a search for meaning. Pilgrims humble themselves to the Way trusting that they will find the meaning of their call away from home and their normal routine, in new places, ideas and encounters with others. They venture as vulnerable strangers into foreign lands laying themselves open to challenges, physical, mental and spiritual. These challenges are what expand and transform them.
