Pilgrimage for the Rest of Us:
The GAP Month
Pilgrimage is an ancient and nearly universal behavior of the human animal, but it’s been buried under the rubble of change in Western culture. It’s not really a normal thing to do anymore, right?
It seems weird or pretentious or hyper-religious these days. It’s fine for Martin Sheen and Gwyneth Paltrow and Buddhist Monks but it doesn’t seem like it’s a thing for the rest of us.
The GAP month is a way to re-claim pilgrimage. Or, at least, to learn from history in order to put together the best, most meaningful trip of your life, even if you’re just a normal person.
It’s not magic or spirituality - it’s history and psychology.
Well, actually, it is magic and spirituality - just not in a weird way.
It’s transformative travel, for everyone.
