Beyond the Footpath
Mindful Adventures for Modern PilgrimsBook - 2019
In these frantic and unsettling times, more people are seeking meaning, stillness and a greater connection with the natural world. Modern pilgrimages satisfy this need. Walking mindfully to a special place goes beyond rambling to something deeper. By leaving behind our noisy lives, setting off quietly and with purpose, then simply putting one foot in front of the other, we discover more about ourselves and the land we inhabit. BEYOND THE FOOTPATH blends the inspirational and the practical with useful information, mindful and creative exercises and suggestions of destinations for your own mindful walks or pilgrimages. Walking with an intention adds purpose and focuses the mind, and Clare Gogerty shows us how the the aim of a pilgrimage is to reach a significant place and come to an understanding of yourself and of the landscape you have walked through. BEYOND THE FOOTPATH is sure to spur any reader to pull on their walking boots and step out on to their own pilgrim's way.
