Rev. Stephanie Escher

The Northwest Coastal Pilgrimage: Recovering the Sacred is a spiritual and intercultural learning experience drawing from indigenous wisdom through Celtic Christian and Native American spirituality.

Through the ancient spiritual practice of pilgrimage, we seek to recover our inherent and sacred connection to all living things. We will explore our unique, generative, and creative response to the dominant and violent forces of our time. Guided spiritual practices will invite each pilgrim towards restoration of harmony and right relation with self, Creator, neighbor, and the planet. This pilgrimage route follows the Pacific Coast Trail in Northern Oregon, and traverses approximately 35 miles of seaside foothills, sand dunes, coastal rainforest and expansive beaches. Beginning with the rising of the sun in the morning, our group will walk 10-15 miles each day by way of trail, beach, and brief roadside walking.
