We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.

The Winter Pilgrim

The Winter Pilgrim

Oct 26, 2016-- In October 2007, Ann Sieben, a native of Denver, Colorado and a nuclear engineer by profession, was waiting for a work permit in Spain that never came through. Instead of looking for other work, she decided to walk on foot along an ancient pilgrimage path known as the Camino de Santiago. Later, in December of that year, she walked over 2100 kilometers from Canterbury to Rome. The following winter, she did it again -- this time from Germany to Spain, and the year after, she walked over 4400 kilometers from Ukraine to Greece. Known as the "winter piligrim," Sieben has journeyed on foot across 44 countries over 40,000 kilometers along paths walked by seekers and pilgrims from years ago -- and she doesn't carry any money, camera, or phone. In this inspiring conversation (transcribed and recorded) touching on multiple themes, Ann shares nuggets of deep wisdom and practical insights from her journey as a pilgrim, in which she evolved from being a touristic pilgrim to a spiritual pilgrim to a servant pilgrim.
