Pilgrimage is not only a community of diverse people, it is also a collection of diverse activities. We are building a deeper connection to ourselves, becoming more present to each other, and acting collectively on behalf of the world we all live in.
Here is a summary of some of the things we are doing. We are adding activities all the time. Let us know what you are looking for and we will see if we can help you find it.
There are two Meetups that are happening every week.
Meditation as Prayer is a chance to spend a few minutes, mid-week, in quite reflection, with others, at times around an inspirational text or scripture and at other times just about whatever we bring to the time together. When we have used texts they have come from the Revised Common Lectionary, considered verses from the Tao Te Ching and the Analects of Confucious, and the non-canonical Gospel of Thomas.
We meet by Zoom on Thursday afternoons at 5:00 Central time. We start the guided meditation at about 5:15 and then share with each other what is coming up for us that we want others to know. We will end by 6:00.

Living with Intention is a conversation by Zoom that meets every Sunday evening from 6:30 to no later than 8:30. This is a conversation that has been going on for four years now but we are always eager to include new people into it.
The conversation is about our own transformation into the fullest people we can be, with the healthiest relationships to ourselves and others, in the context of a community that is dedicated to the growth of everyone.
We chat from 6:30 to 7:00 and then we meditate for about five minutes to create a transition to the deeper conversation. We meet using a conversation style called circle in which only the person with the virtual talking piece speaks.
The focus of the conversation is set by a video, a guidepost, which Mark records and sends out mid-week. To get on the list for the guidepost, sign up on this Google Form.
At about 8:15 we start to close with last comments and then we meditate again to close the session.
We hope to see you soon.
