Reviews - What do customers think about Pilgrim in Time: Mindful Journeys to Encounter the Sacred?
inner and outer quest May 26, 2006
Every page of Rosanne's book drew me in. Each journey she made gave me the desire to experience more sources of awe for myself. I could see that a pilgrimage helps you grow spiritually, intellectually and also culturally. I learned that before going on a pilgrimage you must let go of any expectations, so you are able to grow in these ways. Everyone should read this book! Everyone should experience a pilgrimage of some kind. It is an inner quest as well as an outer one.
Embracing the Pilgrim Spirit Feb 20, 2006
Keller, a sculptor and retreat leader, introduces herself as a wayfarer, a seeker, and finally, a pilgrim, one who "lets things of the past go and journeys through time." In ten absorbing chapters, she shares the insights she gained while visiting locales described briefly under the headings pyramids, circles, domes, towers, rivers, mountains, islands, temples, cathedrals, mosques, and ruins. And we are with her on the final night of 1999 for a "small pilgrimage" in the frozen fields behind her home in Minnesota.
We learn that Keller walked 176 miles of the border between Wales and England to celebrate her 50th birthday. In one of the final chapters, "an instance of what pilgrim spirit is about," she offers a detailed description of her trek across the 500 miles of "The Way of St. James" in Spain at age 61.
In the final chapter, Keller reflects on the spirit of pilgrimage: "All of us are on journeys that require us to abandon security and take risks, sometimes to change course drastically, and always to keep going, even when we don't know exactly where the path is leading."
