Pilgrimage and reconciliation: crossing boundaries to transcend them.

This chapter discusses the concept of 'accidental pilgrimage' and how it may become more intentional. To do this, it explores the correspondence between the outer and inner journey through the lens of three pairs of related concepts often used in discussions of pilgrimage, namely tourist/pilgrim, secular/religious and sacred/holy. Several pilgrimage contexts, including the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, the pilgrimage to Palestine/Israel, the new pilgrimage shrine of St. Paul's Chapel in New York City and the Burning Man festival in Gerlach, Nevada, are in focus. These settings provide an opportunity to examine the function of pilgrimage as an organizing principle for greater psychological and spiritual integration within the individual, between individuals and among estranged groups.
