The next Little Pilgrimages:

Sunday December 8, 2019:  Ancient Rainforest  


Sunday January 5, 2020:  In the Garden of Heaven and Earth 


A Little Pilgrimage takes you on a timeless passage. It is fresh air from the inside out. Take time out at the end and beginning of the year to refresh, be present, deepen insight, reconnect with beauty, uplift the soul, and listen to your inner voice.  

A pilgrimage is a passage of spiritual significance and a private journey into your inner world through the outer world.

About a Little Pilgrimage 

One day, one hour from the city, conducted during the mild and warm months of the year. Diana takes a group of eclectic day travellers for a refreshing and unique experience of our beautiful natural environments, part of the most ancient landscapes on earth, or to the sanctuary of gardens. Each Little Pilgrimage has a theme that reflects the landscape as well as a universal life theme.

A Pilgrimage for Your Group

Little Pilgrimages can also be designed and conducted especially for your group to Forest, Ocean, Gardens or Rivers. Contact to discuss.

Little Pilgrimage: Ancient Rainforest

Seeing Beauty

The themes for all the Little Pilgrimages reflect the place itself. This pilgrimage is set in our magnificent rainforest, one of the most ancient environments on Earth. It is not a bush walk, but rather a walking reflection on the beauty within  and around us, the relationship between the two, and how that relationship can make us feel more alive. The poet Pascal said, “You should always carry something of beauty in your mind.”

The Little Pilgrimage Forest will provide you with plenty of images and thoughts to take away, so you can always have something of beauty with you especially for when times get tough.

Next Forest Pilgrimage: Sunday December 8, 2019. One hour from Melbourne


Little Pilgrimage: Gardens

In the Gardens of Heaven and Earth

Open your mind to heaven and earth in this garden pilgrimage. The earthly world and the heavenly world are like yin and yang – they are two aspects of the same whole.

This can be viewed as a metaphor for what is within you. As the poet Rumi said, “You are a microcosm of the universe.” It is what you do with that inner resource as a matter of potential that matters and forms your contribution to others and the world. Allow fresh air to blow through the blocks and stress of life and immerse yourself in the nature and beauty of this place.

A wonderful start to a new year in a quiet centre of Melbourne.

Next Gardens Pilgrimage: Sunday 5 January, 2020. In a quiet centre of Melbourne.

Little Pilgrimage: Ocean

 At the Edge of Two Worlds

Where the ocean meets the land is a meeting of two worlds.

The ocean is where life began. It is what formed us. The land is what we know and where we live. These are two distinct atmospheres, two rhythms and ways of being. Two worlds that serve different purposes. It is a primal conversation.

Sometimes life is like this, especially during transition. The meeting of ocean and land is a living metaphor of the boundaries and thresholds we arrive at in life and the worlds we live between. Being at the edge of two worlds deserves recognition, time, and to be treated with respect.

At the edge of two worlds is also where you can spread your wings, liberate thinking and be expansive . . .

This Pilgrimage is concentrated in one day an hour and twenty drive from Melbourne.
