What Is a Pilgrimage?
A great traveler is a kind of introspective; as he/she covers the ground outwardly,
so he/she advances fresh interpretations of herself inwardly.
— Lawrence Durrell
Hungry Souls believes the spiritual practice of pilgrimage is almost a lost art. In his book The Art of Pilgrimage, Phil Cousineau writes, "The easier it becomes to travel widely, on the wings of supersonic jets and via the Internet, the harder it becomes to travel wisely." Many people are going to travel (despite the expenses of jet fuel and the exasperations of the currency exchange), so we attempt to restore wisdom to tourism. All our journeys use the cultures that we are exploring to stimulate spiritual practices and dialogues. We avoid big tour buses as much as possible, and use the public transportations that force us to interact (even with language deficiencies) with the places and the people of that country. In a 10-day tour, we attempt to move our group no more than three times. And the pilgrimages are built around the discoveries travel incites, both inwardly and outwardly.
