Why is resilience such an important part of pilgrimage? How can embracing the challenge of the way help in daily life? Why do we need to heed the call to pilgrimage before it’s too late?
I’m Jo Frances Penn and in this episode, I share some clips from podcast interviews I’ve done around my new book, Pilgrimage: Lessons Learned from Solo Walking Three Ancient Ways. Thanks to Travel Writing World with Jeremy Bassetti, Into the Woods with Holly Worton, and Sacred Steps with Kevin Donahue, podcasts you will enjoy as listeners to this show.
As this goes out, Pilgrimage is available through my Kickstarter campaign at JFPenn.com/pilgrimage in a special limited edition signed hardback, as well as a paperback, ebook, audiobook narrated by me, large print edition, and a workbook. It will be on Kickstarter until 5 February 2023, and then you can still visit that link to find it on all the other stores later in the year.
In this episode, I talk about:
- Which were the three ancient ways I walked and why they’re interesting even if you’re not religious
- What I learned along the way
- The three types of energy you need at the different stages
- How pilgrimage reminds us we are animals, and how it gives a much-needed perspective on life.
