Product description

This work explores people's inborn yearning to discover a greater depth in their lives, for an encounter with the divine. Pilgrimage is an opportunity to transform oneself through personal challenge. The chosen site is often one with a religious connection, a place where a deity is believed to have appeared, where a footprint is preserved in stone, or where the remains of a saint are buried. But there may be a more personal connection linked to the goal. The book features pilgrimages from around the world, and from many different religions and new-age philosophy. Part one describes the cultural and historical background to pilgrimage, and takes the reader through each stage. Drawing from particular examples, it offers practical advice for self-preparation, the journey, the arrival and the return home. Part two covers 40 other sites providing information on the best time to go, how to get there and what to take. The book aims to encourage readers to experience being a pilgrim.
