Pilgrimage is much more than just walking or recreating. It is taking time for oneself, for one's friends, and not least for God. It means observing nature, being fascinated by its beauties and secrets that we only discover when we focus on them. Pilgrimage means to engage in the centuries-old tradition of pilgrimage, in the path of our ancestors who, with their devotion, faith and trust, created invaluable places of pilgrimage, shrines and pilgrimage routes that have always connected and united different nations and cultures. On these paths you can hear and smell history, legendary stories and great personalities ... May the paths also connect and unite you with yourself, your loved ones, God and new friends. Once you become a pilgrim, we are sure that you will remain a pilgrim throughout your life. In essence, your life becomes one pilgrimage. Good luck on the way!
The beginner training will provide you with the main aims of pilgrimage in different religions and introduce you to the many psychological, cultural and spiritual benefits of pilgrimage. You will learn about the famous pilgrimage sites in Europe and around the world. Finally, we will give you some technical information and practical advice that you should usefully follow so that your pilgrimage becomes a true spiritual journey for you and your fellow pilgrims.
