Intergenerational Pilgrimage to Lake of the Isles
Have you ever wondered: What would it be like to go on a pilgrimage? Maybe you know people who have walked The Camino de Santiago in Spain, visited the Holy Land in the Middle East, or have participated in Hajj. At its heart, a pilgrimage is a journey to a sacred or spiritually important place. This journey is often made in the company of others, sometimes over many days, and it can be transformative for participants, leading them to encounter truths about themselves or their faith through the journey.
Plymouth’s Living Water Contemplative group, in collaboration with the Spiritual Exploration Committee, Committee for Children, Youth and Families, and the Climate and Environmental Justice Committee, invite you to join us in a pilgrimage around Lake of the Isles. This journey is a pilgrimage in that we will journey together as a community to encounter the sacredness of nature, of water, and of each other, as we mindfully walk together around one of our beautiful urban lakes.
This journey will start and end with a communal gathering at Kenwood Park. In between, you will be invited to walk around the lake, where you will encounter four stations that will offer invitations to open your senses, your heart, and your imagination. This experience is designed to be accessible for all ages – you are welcome to participate in as many or as few of the stations as you like, and completing a full loop of the lake is not required. The invitation is simply to join us with an open heart, as we listen to nature and each other in new ways.
Please sign-up so we can anticipate the group size:
Optional: Stay afterwards for a picnic.
