Camino De Crestone © 2022

A Message from the Original Founder

You've arrived at the world's first interfaith pilgrimage.

In some of Colorado's most beautiful country, at the foot of sacred mountains, walk as a pilgrim 2-5 miles a day for a week as you visit different spiritual centers: zendos and monasteries, labyrinths and sweat lodges, stupas and sanctuaries, medicine wheels and ashrams. With great food, great camaraderie, and great inspiration, this educational intensive is unique on the planet and a week you will never forget.
The Camino de Crestone pilgrimage is offered in the spirit of religious unity and diversity.  You will be visiting many spiritual centers in a week-long experience geared to be educational, clarifying, non- dogmatic, and richly thorough—a unique contribution to your spiritual journey.

In 2012, after my wife and I finished walking the Camino de Santiago, northern Spain’s millennium-old pilgrimage that drew even St. Francis, the seed-thought -- It’s time for a Camino de Crestone -- came as clearly as the recognition of springtime. Why Crestone?  Nearby are stupas and zendos, ashrams, a monastery, a Sufi tekke, Buddhist retreats, not to mention medicine wheels and sweat lodges, Sacred mountains overlook the Camino de Crestone, a true place of power. Participants experience meditations, dharma talks, a sweat lodge, sacred dance, spiritual healings, plus presentations and meetings with adepts in many traditions. Experience (not dogma) is key. Pilgrimage has been a staple in the spiritual diet of Homo Sapiens for eons. The Camino de Crestone has moved forward the spiritual development of our human family. Walking this unprecedented educational opportunity—a 20+ mile circuit that visits over a dozen spiritual centers in a week's time—naturally creates ambassadors of harmony among our planet's great spiritual-religious traditions. Having shepherded the Camino de Crestone from its inception through 2017 (five uplifting, astounding and inspiring years) I now find my personal journey is leading me to other engagements. I feel fortunate that Ula Adamska felt called to take the helm as of 2022 and to ensure the continuation of this important pilgrimage opportunity.   ~To her and to each of you, I wish a Buen Camino! William Howell:  Poet, author, retreat master and teacher of meditation, his immersions in the great spiritual - religious traditions of our planet led him to found Sanctuary House in 1992 and the Camino de Crestone in 2012.

Crestone

Amid some of Colorado's greatest beauty, the little mountain town of Crestone is a magnet of spiritual presences.  Within walking distance of this small international town are stupas and zendos, ashrams, Buddhist retreats and centers for sacred dance and voice, not to mention medicine wheels and sweat lodges. The most sacred mountains in the world to the Hopi and Navajo overlook the Camino de Crestone and the Great Sand Dunes just to the south. It is a true place of power.
