A pilgrimage is a journey of spiritual significance..
Hi this is Beth Haley with Pilgrimage Studio.
Human beings, regardless of the boundaries between culture, tribe, tradition, religion, race or gender, have been taking pilgrimages from the beginning of time.
There are many places one might go to for a pilgrimage. A famous one is the UNESCO World Heritage Kumano Kodo site that is home to the Kumano Sanzan Shrines, where monks and emperors have walked for more than 1,000 years. Today this pilgrimage route is traveled by more than practitioners of Buddhism and Shinto but by nature lovers, hikers, photographers, and historians.
There are also many reasons that one might set out on a pilgrimage – from paying homage, gaining spiritual enlightenment, to seeking healing. The purpose of my pilgrimage is focused on the every day journey that we all take, day in and day out, one step and one photo at a time, moment by moment, through our life.
This pilgrimage, for me, began with an interest in the cultural practices, customs, and traditions for transformation, wellbeing and healing around the world.
This interest resulted in a Bachelor of Arts in the College of Health, Human Services, and Science for a degree in Complimentary and Alternative health (relatives of Holistic Health and Integrative Medicine) from Ashford University in 2014. Then in 2018, I began leading guided meditations and blogging. Each of these have been pilgrimages in their own right.
One key factor became prevalent in my day-to-day health and blogging path:
What is sustainable?
Welcome to my studio. I hope you find something you love and a blessing to take with you on your own personal pilgrimage of Wellbeing.
