Cumberland-based Weird Church is hosting a snowshoe pilgrimage open to the public.
Scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 15, 2-4 p.m., the pilgrimage will start at Mount Washington’s Raven Lodge, taking the flattest trail with frequent stops for reflection, introspection and deep listening. After the trek, there will be time for drinks and discussion about the journey at the “après pilgrimage” gathering at Ted’s Bar & Grill at the alpine lodge.
“A pilgrimage is an intentional spiritual journey—a trek for the body and soul— for which each participant opens themself up to the possibility that there can be transformation by that which is greater than ourselves,” said Rev. Ingrid Brown, founder of Weird Church.
Participation is by donation (plus the cost of rentals and trail fees), advance registration is requested (www.weirdchurchcumberland.com) and carpool options are available. Snowshoe rentals are available at Mount Washington.
