In the Celtic tradition of Christianity, those on pilgrimage didn’t have a definite destination. They only knew and trusted the God who called them as they headed out.
In some way, this is a parable of the last 18 months, which has felt like a time of wandering for many people. We make plans only for them to be changed, maybe even several times before they are canceled all together. We long for some anchor in this uncertainty.
This November InterVarsity Study Abroad is offering an opportunity to find that anchor as we explore the first four sessions of Via Divina: The Celtic Way.
Each audio-guided excursion explores a theme of Celtic spirituality using the story of a Celtic saint, scripture reflection, sensory activities, and prayer.
OUTDOORS & ONLINE
It's as easy as putting in your headphones and stepping out your door, and checking the community website.

Regular price: $25
If you register together with a friend you'll both receive $5 off.

Orientation will take place on Monday, November 1st. One walking session is schedule per week. Celebration will be on Monday, November 29th.
Before every walk, you'll enter into a session's theme by contemplating a piece of original artwork created by InterVarsity staff Bette Dickinson.
To process your experience, you're encouraged to debrief with others in small groups at a pace that matches the timing of your overall pilgrimage.
After each walk, you'll be equipped with additional creative, embodied practices to help you recognize and reflect upon the sacred in the everyday.
