Place of Resurrection

“Let your feet follow your heart until you find your place of resurrection.”

This Celtic saying reflects the importance of pilgrimage as a spiritual practice in the Celtic tradition.

At the holy well of St. Brigid in Kildare, Ireland.

Why “place of resurrection?” During  pilgrimage we leave behind our usual ways, our comforts, as we step into the unknown. Resurrection is about the trust we have that our steps will be led by the ever-unfolding presence of guidance in our lives – that which brings us hope, healing, renewal, liberation, transformation, rebirth – whatever we choose to call it: God or Goddess, cosmic serendipity, Tao, flow, Christ consciousness, emergence, the Universe.

Celtic monks sought their places of resurrection in this world, journeying to find the place where they could best fulfill their mission. Many of us are wanderers in this way – spiritually if not physically. We follow our hearts to best discern where we can serve, and how we can bring the spirit of resurrection to others.

Feel free to share your pilgrimage and resurrection stories.

  1. Having been on many pilgrimages ~ actual, mythical, personal, spiritual… I always feel so very grateful for those who have guided my steps. You are one of those guides, Katharine; you are a spirit guide. Thank you for sharing your spirit with us.


  2. Matthew Fox wrote:
    “To me, the “paschal mystery” of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus the rabbi is an archetypal reminder about how, as science now teaches us, all things in the cosmos live, die and resurrect. Supernovas, galaxies, solar systems, planets, beings that inhabit our planet—we all have our time of existence and of passing out of existence. But we leave something behind for further generations and that constitutes resurrection.”

  3. This is beautiful. We are all on spiritual paths. This is my resurrection understanding:

    Jesus came into the world to teach love and forgiveness. Simple and wonderful enough. But the way to heaven? How is that? How exactly does he save us? It seems clear that he died for our sins, but I’ve always thought we’ve missed the point of why he died for our sins. Did God really demand a death sacrifice to even the score? What parent would do that? No. I think Jesus was sacrificed so we would simply believe in his love for us, and as we share this beautiful love and forgiveness, we lift each other up, shedding the emotional heaviness of sin that would doom our souls to the deep and dark. We literally lift each other up to find the light of God.

    Our wise Father sent big brother Jesus to teach us to hold hands and fly.

    Happy flying! Enjoyed your site! –Judy
