Remember: Never Waste A Crisis

January 10, 2021

The philosopher Ivan Illich reminds us that the original meaning of the word is ‘turning point’, ‘the marvellous moment when people become aware of their self-imposed cages, and of the possibility of a different life’.

New Pilgrim Path this week introduces a wide range of opportunities for spiritual transformation in times of pandemic, from online courses and retreats to inspirational websites, music and poetry; from marvellous resources for contemplation, meditation and self-examination to a comprehensive listing of streamed religious services for a range of Christian denominations worldwide.
