What Is A Pilgrimage?

A pilgrimage is an intentional journey with a sacred purpose, often to a sacred place or place of personal significance. Every step along the way has meaning; challenges and obstacles may appear on the path. Helpers and guides may show up with aid and support unlooked-for. Sometimes it involves a long and arduous walk.

Often a person makes a pilgrimage to a shrine or place of spiritual significance to them. In a more general sense, a person may make a pilgrimage to a favorite scenic place such as a breathtaking ocean view or a spectacular mountain peak or an ancient landscape such as Machu Picchu or the Great Pyramids. It has been said that the journey through life itself is the greatest pilgrimage. A person who makes such a journey is called a pilgrim.

The Way of the Stones

COMING TO YOU IN 2019! Thank you for your interest in this amazing journey. We are working on this offering and are currently developing related materials and resources. Please check back periodically to see how it’s coming along.

PREVIEW:  The Way of the Stones is a long, circuitous, sometimes difficult, meditation path that winds its way around Kinstone and ultimately leads to the Chapel of Creation. It offers a pilgrimage experience to those who seek to reveal and connect to the Holy, Divine, and Sacred in their daily lives. An outer, physical journey can often be a mirror and magnifier of one’s inner, spiritual journey. Each stone waypoint on this journey will offer a gift to the pilgrim. The specifics of this experience are currently being developed. In the future, pilgrims will be able to obtain a small booklet containing a pilgrimage map, writing space, inspirational words and journal prompts to guide them on the path. The intention is that individuals may walk The Way of the Stones in a self-guided manner. Further, we plan to offer group pilgrimage retreat experiences that could be one day or several days. Check back soon! Thank you for your interest!
