Day 2: Sunrise to Sunset Pilgrimage... Olbrich to Picnic Point

This pilgrimage across Madison will weave sacred and silly into a healing and building of community... for diverse and polarized energies. It will be highly participatory, spontaneous, and intuitively guided... drawing out the child-like wonder, awe, and glee hidden in all of us. It will plant seeds for the future and shine light to all... i.e. being the change we wish to see.
