EBC Thought Leaders Series

Coaching is as much a journey as pilgrimages are. Pilgrimages are quests, or journeys, to a sacred site. The effects of a pilgrimage continue long after the pilgrim arrives at the sacred center. As with coaches, the pilgrim arrives to continue to the next milestone. There are several examples in western literature that explore pilgrimages as experiences of self-transformation and growth, including Homer’s Odyssey, Dante’s Divine Comedy, Joyce’s Ulysses, and Equiano’s The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano (The African).  The Camino de Santiago is one such quest that is said to restore passion for life and facilitate transformative learning, spiritual awakening, and shifts in meaning-making. This is a conversation to explore both the transformative power of pilgrimages as well as how pilgrimages can serve as a model for developmental coaching. Akasha also presents his early conceptualization of the Pilgrimage Coaching Model to support developmental coaching.
