(CANCELLED) Inaugural Roots Pilgrimage July 2018

We are sorry to annouce that this pilgrimage has been cancelled effective 3-16-18.
We hope to offer it again in 2019, so please check back.

CANCELLED:  Join us for this joint inaugural Roots Pilgrimage (8 nights/8 days) with the Hungarian Unitarian Church and the UU Partner Church Council!  Together we will explore our shared Unitarian religious heritage, including spiritual, cultural and theological beliefs, values and traditions. 

On most international tours you get to meet local people as you spend an afternoon or a few overnights in their homes. During these encounters we share family photos and compare education, jobs and food.  But even with translators it is difficult to go deeper with our personal thoughts, dreams for our futures and our theological beliefs.  With the Roots Pilgrimage, travelers will be able to delve into these topics with a group of participants from Transylvania, as we travel to historical Unitarian sites, live together and share ongoing facilitated conversations about topics important to all of us.

Lectures, panel discussions, small group conversations and spiritual practices will help Transylvanian and North American participants explore large spiritual themes.  Travelers will engage with activities and discussions around cultural and theological beliefs beliefs relating to all of life.  Specifically, we will discuss birth/origin, development through relationships, fulfillment, and death/grief.  These topics are some of the “big” religious questions which span all life.  The Roots Pilgrimage gives you an amazing opportunity to explore your own faith while at the same time connecting very deeply with our siblings in faith.

If you are interested in closer connections with your partner church, if you are a religious seeker, if you want to learn about yourself, Transylvania, Unitarianism and Unitarian Universalism - this is the trip for you!
