Sitting down, another way to go on a pilgrimage

Sitting down to do a pilgrimage, what a weird idea… Well, not so much in truth: mindful sitting and pilgrimage have been twin practices for a long time and for many spiritual traditions!

Mindful sitting can become a complementary practice that can help pilgrims to go higher, further… without actually moving an inch.
In this post, let’s talk pilgrimage, mindful sitting and inner journey!
