Friday morning, June20th
Today is the first day of the Spiral Paths of Cornwall Pilgrimage. I am excited, nervous and very grateful to be here with this extraordinary group of people.
Today we head up to Lelant and experience the Cornish Camino, or St Michael's Way. This 12+ mile path crosses Cornwall at its most narrow point and gave Camino pilgrims from Ireland, Wales, Scotland and northern England a safe passage to the south coast of England on their way to Spain.
We will start our walk at a holy well and then make our way along the coastal path into Carbis Bay before turning inland and walking down toward Penzance. Not sure how many of us will actually walk the full 12 miles. That's not actually the point, This journey is about walking deeply and experiencing an intimacy with ourselves and the land, its legends and its magic.
We will see what gifts the path provides for us today!
