Small Pilgrim Places – Breathing Spaces on the Pilgrim Journey
A national network based in the UK that seeks to draw people as pilgrims, across the boundaries of faiths, denominations and spiritual paths, by promoting small ‘breathing spaces’, where all can feel welcome as they pause on their journey. These ‘breathing spaces’ are characterised by the four key elements of Space, Silence, Solitude and Simplicity, encouraging stillness, prayer, and reflection. The special atmosphere of a Small Pilgrim Place grows out of its life of prayer and from the ongoing and deepening relationship between the Place and those who care for it. The Network supports such Places as they seek to develop in their local contexts.
