About this title
Susanne Hassell and her son Paul published their first book back in January, 2011. Pilgrim Walk by the Sea is a companion "field guide" for those seeking to explore the spiritual side of nature. Pilgrim Walk has been in the making for over a decade. A lifelong nature-lover, Susanne grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, and spent countless days watching sunrises and exploring the beaches near her home. After formalizing Holy Paths, Inc.,as a 501c3 non-profit in 2006, Susanne began taking people on "pilgrim walks" and inviting them to spend more time observing than talking. Some of the walks were short. Some of them lasted hours. But all of them shared a common purpose: to appreciate nature's many gifts-a unique shell, the tracks of sandpipers, the cries of seagulls-and to find spiritual significance in them. These quiet exercises struck a chord with Susanne's friends and supporters. They asked for her guided reflections in book form so that they could do pilgrim walks on their own. While working on her Doctorate of Ministry at San Francisco Theological Seminary, a professor invited her to lead her colleagues on a pilgrim walk. Over the following weeks and months, the emails poured in: "Is Pilgrim Walk finished?" "When can I buy a copy?" "I want that book!" Susanne asked her youngest son Paul, who is a professional outdoor photographer, to enhance the book with his photographs. The result was a beautiful, durable book helpful for growing closer to God through creation. Demand continues to grow for Pilgrim Walk in the Woods, so Susanne and Paul decided to compile Pilgrim Walk by the Sea. "Pilgrim Walk by the Sea isn't meant to gather dust on a coffee table," Susanne said. "You can use it anywhere there is water. I hope the reflections will help people draw closer to our Creator."
