Thoughts on pilgrimage lifted with gratitude from Robert McFarlane in his feature in the Guardian, The Road More Travelled, June 16th 2012,

 

“Place works on the pilgrim, that is what pilgrimage is for.”

Rowan Williams, Anglican bishop and Archbishop of Canterbury until Dec 2012. Cited in R. Mcfarlane, The Road More Travelled The Guardian, 16.06.12

 

 

“Pilgrim rules:

The Rule of Resonance: a smaller place with which we resonate is more important than a place of great pilgrimage.

 

The Rule of Correspondence: a place within a landscape corresponds to a place within the heart.

….”

 

“The number of quiet pilgrims is rising. Places are starting to move. On stones and in forests one comes across small offerings-a posy made from wheat, a feather in a bunch of heather, a circle from snail shells.”

 

Vaclav Cilek, from “Bees of the Invisible” Artesian journal, cited in R. Mcfarlane, The Road More Travelled The Guardian, 16.06.12
