Why do pilgrims walk so much? What do they learn? And does it do them any lasting good? Sally Welch has been going on pilgrimage for over 20 years and her new book is a guide to the art and practice of pilgrimage through some of the most beautiful and ancient pilgrim routes in the UK and abroad.
She will share her experiences and some of what she has learnt about how to go on pilgrimage well including what it has taught her about, among other things, trust, travelling lightly and the joys of companionship. She will also reflect on how insights gained on the journey can be incorporated into the spirituality of everyday life.
The Revd Dr Sally Welch is the Vicar of Charlbury in the Diocese of Oxford. Her books include Walking the Labyrinth (Canterbury Press 2013), How to be a Mindful Christian (Canterbury Press 2016), and Pilgrim Journeys: Pilgrimage for walkers and armchair travellers (BRF 2017).
