Mindfulness on Ireland’s pilgrim paths

Writer Bébhinn Ramsay was 31 when her husband died, leaving her to raise her two young children.

Her faith and sense of self were left shaken by the tragedy – but when her parents mentioned that they were doing a memorial walk on a sacred pilgrim path in Ireland, she decided to join in.

Since then, she says she has discovered why sacred walking can lead to a spiritual awakening – irrelevant of what your faith is.
