Another pilgrimage

In 3 weeks I will join Sarah Bachelard on a Pilgrimage along Tasmania’s Overland Track. In six days our small band will walk from Waldheim and Cradle Mountain south to icy Lake St Clair.

Contemplative community leader Sarah will keep us in a “spirit of pilgrimage, attentive to the voice of the country and to our own truth.”

My training on Canberra’s trails in wind, sun and rain has stood me in good stead for this pilgrimage. I carry just under 8kg and take a route that challenges me with both steep and gradual ascents.

Campers on the trail lug packs weighing over 10kg, well beyond my carrying capacity. Our group will sleep in warm huts and eat meals cooked for us by experienced guides. The luxury version of this popular trail!

The scenery changes from alpine plateau and glacial lake to rock-strewn mountainside and temperate rainforest. I hope my innerscape will settle from frenetic to serene over the same period.

One’s destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things
