What a delightful seminar. Not only did I learn about why people do/did pilgrimages and the famous pilgrim routes but all the fun and fascinating trivia like foods, clothing, companions, and safety issues.
I thoroughly enjoyed this seminar. The speaker has a very pleasant manner and the material was very well organised and nicely illustrated. I learned a lot and it gave me some new travel ideas. Recommended!
The Weirdly Wonderful World of Relics, Saints, and Medieval Pilgrimage with Chandi Wyant was fascinating and captivating! Chandi is an engaging instructor who provided historical context and keen insights to medieval belief systems, culture and traditions. This is the second course I've taken from Ms. Wyant. Because of her vast knowledge and passion for history I would love to take more classes from her.
A very nice overview of the first Christian pilgrimages defining the motivations and, particularly interesting, the early literature. Wyant presents us with a whole cast of characters.
I found Chandi's presentation of the history of pilgrimages fascinating and the stories made relevant through the voices of those who undertook a perilous journey to seek miracles, salvation and healing down through the ages.
Chandi gave detailed historical accounts through her research of 12 centuries of pilgrims, showing parallels to today's travelers seeking quietude and having a wanderlust for adventure.
My quest for a deep immersion into the cultures of past and present day, and a desire to seek answers to life's mysteries & challenges, led me to read Chandi's book, "Return to Glow." I was so intrigued, I began to search to learn more, which led me to discover this class and an abundance of resources in the Context Learning curriculum.
I'm learning from the masters, past and present, and am encouraged to forge my own path ahead. I got a lot from just one seminar, and can't wait for the next one.
I am compiling notes for an upcoming pilgrimage next spring. Thank you Chandi for being a beacon of light, and sharing your GLOW!
