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 past year, 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 spring, InterVarsity Study Abroad is offering an opportunity to find that anchor during our newest digital pilgrimage, 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.

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.
