Pilgrimage

Pilgrimage is an approach to life that is grounded in the Now and moves along an open-hearted journey of transformation. It is profoundly hopeful living. 

Pilgrimage is cultivated in incremental, ordinary steps—and sometimes in a literal, momentous journey that helps body and soul realize and integrate pilgrimage's rhythms and processes. 

Pilgrimage trains the eye of the soul to see God daily, everywhere, in all things. Participate in one of the upcoming Trinity Pilgrimages (or set out on your own!) and discover your self and the Divine presence in a whole new way.

"Pilgrim, there is no path—Paths are made by walking." —Antonio Machado

Living Stones: A Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
Lent 2019

This is Trinity’s fourth pilgrimage to what is considered the “Center of the Earth” by so many past and present pilgrims. We will dwell in familiar biblical places—Bethlehem, Nazareth, and Jerusalem, and experience their powerful texture afresh as we reflect on Jesus’ life and ministry in these long-hallowed places. We will also have rich opportunities to experience the “Living Stones”—what the people of the 3 biblical faiths call themselves—who have lived together on holy ground with difficulty, courage, and resilience for more than a thousand years.

The Heart of Mary: A Pilgrimage to Shrines of the Black Madonna
TBD, 2020

This pilgrimage will explore sites long associated with Mary and with Mary Magdalene, often expressed in the popular “Black Madonna” shrines of southern France. We will also interact with the living stewards of these shrines, the Roma (“Gypsy”) culture. This pilgrimage will intentionally focus on the “soul’s journey” as well as our outer travel, and will nourish the more feminine and earthy aspects of our spirituality, which have traditionally been excluded from official/authorized religious expression.
