PILGRIMAGE REGISTRATION, TERMS & RATES
In putting together the Heart of Faith Pilgrimage, the leaders have been inspired to work together as a team to build an experience unlike any other available. Groups have been traveling to Jerusalem and the environs for thousands of years. Almost always, they travel with “their own kind.” The places visited may be similar, but the intents differ widely, and that intention has everything to do with your experience. Are you prepared to open your heart; to expand your own faith—wherever and whatever that is for you— to go beyond your current experience; to immerse yourself in a mystical view of the Sacred; to share in the heart of the Divine in the land where so much began? All of our leaders is uniquely experienced and qualified to meet you where you are and to bring you deeper into the spiritual life, regardless of your path.
This group is not a “tour”, though it has many elements included on tours. It is a pilgrimage in that pilgrims go to sacred places seeking a blessing and profound inner change. But it is more—it is a call to travel together to BE a vibration of unity and healing, merely through your presence; to give at the level of Spirit, in addition to receiving.
Do you feel that call?
The Heart of Faith Holy Land Pilgrimage 2013 will truly be a life-changing experience, starting the moment your register, till long after you return.
