Two pilgrims from the Camino de Santiago explore together and with friends how to experience the best of the pilgrim life in the every day and close to home.
Accepting Yourself, Accepting Your Pilgrimage with guest Lisa Closner
Today, Lisa Closner joins PIlgrim Lost to share her love of the pilgrim life and the very practical ways she is struggling to bring pilgrimage to her life at home and share it with her community. We discuss the long process of hope, hubris, disappointment, and reimagination of our pilgrim desires.
What's your Story? with guest Michael Turner of "I'll Push You"
How do you enter into another's story? How do you do it in dramatic or even mundane ways? Today we talk with Michael Turner who is featured in the inspiring documentary, "I'll Push You," about a group of friends and strangers who helped push a wheelchair-bound man over the 500 miles of the Camino de Santiago. Listen to Michael's lessons of friendship and generosity.
Generosity of Spirit
In today’s podcast, Kari and Tony ponder and reflect on a variety of topics including friendship, mental health, and the culture wars, ultimately finding inspiration and hope in the ways people can exhibit generosity of spirit in the most trying of circumstances.
Pain is the Great Equalizer with guest Jill Riley
Today on Pilgrim Lost we are joined by Jill Riley - pastor, author and host of the podcast ‘Post-Traumatic Faith’ which will re-launch on April 2nd. Jill vulnerably shares with us her history of abuse and the mental illness that resulted from the incredible trauma she experienced as a child. She has used her pain and pilgrimage of mental health to become a passionate advocate for normalizing the language surrounding mental illness. Jill’s powerful journey of having her identity stripped away and yet ultimately finding self-acceptance in the midst of her circumstances is one we all need to hear.
The Venn Diagram of Conversations
Relationships are a pilgrimage and pilgrims cannot control who they encounter along the way. This week Kari and Tony discuss conversations with those who come from a markedly different political, cultural or spiritual perspective. How do we foster peacemaking? How do we experience wholeness both within ourselves as well as within the space we inhabit with the "other"?
The Peacemaking Pilgrim with guest Jon Huckins of the Global Immersion Project
In this conversation, Kari and Tony are joined by Jon Huckins, co-founder of the Global Immersion Project. Honesty and humor erupted throughout, as Jon shared about his life-altering lessons from the Camino Portugués and his everyday practices of peace-making in his local neighborhood in San Diego.
Like having tea with some close friends
Kari and Tony have really expanded the idea of pilgrimage for me. Finding wholeness in the ordinary, sometimes monotonous days can be so difficult. Pilgrim Lost has really helped me work toward finding joy, grace for myself, and grace for others every day instead of waiting for the perfect pilgrim walk. Loving these conversations!! Thank you for sharing!
A beautiful and honest conversation about our shared humanity. I highly recommend listening in on these conversations. I’m certain you’ll leave them feeling inspired, more curious, and hopefully a little less alone.
For those of us who have walked part or all of the Camino, this is a treasure. Thank you for creating this podcast.
