VIA TRANSILVANICA - Walk, Pray and Live

Pilgrimage
VIA TRANSILVANICA Walk Pray and Live

Description

The physical act of walking puts us in the mood of searching. Searching the meaning of life by scrutinizing our desires and understanding the meaning of the events we are passing through. When we walk, our perspective changes and we become more and more able to welcome new faces of the mystery of life. We propose 5 days of prayerful pilgrimage in northern Moldavia. On the path, we will also visit some Orthodox monasteries from the 15th and 16th century.
