The Compassionate Earth Walk is a spiritual pilgrimage along the proposed Keystone XL pipeline route. (see map) Led by Buddhist priest Shodo Spring, the pilgrimage will take over 100 days, walking an average of 20 miles a day.
OUR MISSION AND VISION:
The Compassionate Earth Walk is a spiritual pilgrimage honoring our place within the community of life.
The human species is at a crossroads.
Our decisions now will profoundly influence the future of our children and of the whole earth.
The Keystone pipeline has become a poignant symbol of the risks of fossil fuels, the tension between economic priorities and human well-being, and the threat of climate change to all life on earth.
We trace its route through the Great Plains with peace and compassion,eager to hear all voices, including the wordless voice of the natural world, blessing the earth with each step, listening, witnessing, and offering service.
The walk is intergenerational, intercultural and interfaith.
