Pilgrim Principles: Journeying with Intention in Everyday Life

Pilgrim Principles: Journeying with Intention in Everyday Life




We are all on journeys. We set off on journeys far away from home and journey in our everyday lives-through obstacles and accomplishments, ups and downs, stages of life and everything in between. And when we infuse our journeys with meaning and intention, they become Sacred.

Pilgrimage is a Sacred journey-a movement that brings us toward the Divine. It speaks to our longing for something more, and our search for answers to life's deepest questions: Who am I? Who is God? What makes me come alive? Though ancient in its roots, the practice of pilgrimage is alive and well today, beckoning a new generation of seekers to journey beyond the edge of daily life into terrains of mystery, wonder, revelation, delight, acceptance, and transformation. But you don't have to leave home to begin living like a pilgrim. To live as a pilgrim at home, all you need to do is see your life as a journey and your role as a seeker of the Sacred.

In Pilgrim Principles: Journeying with Intention in Everyday Life, author Lacy Clark Ellman leads you on a seven-week journey to embrace the practice of pilgrimage right at home. Each week, she explores a different guiding principle of the pilgrim, with themes ranging from looking for the Sacred in the ordinary and immersing oneself in culture, to uncovering the true self and the presence of the Divine within.

Daily readings include practices and reflections to make the principle personal, guiding readers on a holistic search for meaning and Sacred Encounter in daily life. At the end of this seven-week journey, eager seekers will find themselves transformed and ready to set off on their next Sacred adventure.
