Walking the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage founded in the 10th century, is a life-changing experience which covers Spain and other parts of Europe. The Kumano Kodo, an UNESCO World Heritage route, is an otherworldly and spiritual pilgrimage through the Kii Peninsula, south of Osaka, Japan. Traversed by monks, emperors, kings and pilgrims, it follows temples and shrines and offers the most spectacular rural landscapes one can imagine. ARC Professor Roxanne Morgan has completed both pilgrimages and will share her Kumano Kodo experiences with us at this event. She’ll also help us learn about ryokans, onsens and the art of bowing and being a pilgrim. Come find out what you need to do to pick up your staff and earn your compostela, become a dual pilgrim and the honor of drumming on the sacred Taiko.
