Last year, more than 200 million people worldwide went on a religious pilgrimage.

Traveling to a faraway land to trek up a mountain or bathe in a sacred pool may seem absurd to some, yet it shows the depth of human longing for a rebirth.

Writing can be an inner pilgrimage, a voyage into the interiors of the mind and on a deeper level, the soul. As we write about the changes and events in our lives, we can see patterns and discover ways to encourage healthy growth.

Exercise: Set a timer for fifteen minutes and write about a pilgrimage you’ve taken in your life. Perhaps you left one career for another, began or ended a relationship, or moved to a new part of the city, country or even the world. What did you learn about yourself during that time?
