Quest 2.0 Canigou
The men’s treks consist of a series of three Quest treks that can be done over a period of three years. Each subsequent journey is more challenging physically, spiritually and in preparation. During the Quest there is daily quiet time and there is an introduction or testimony based on a daily theme. Men will work personally with stimulating questions.
KM Quest 2.0
This journey begins the evening before. On Wednesday evening, a minivan will set off for Casteil; the first climb of a special trip where we will hike up to an altitude of about 1900 m. The central theme of this trip is vulnerability, not a typical male thing, but that’s why it’s so beautiful. You can only do this trek if you have already done KM Quest 1.0. It is the next step out of your comfort zone. A little physical preparation helps, and again, you must have read a specified book prior to the trek. In addition, your equipment needs to be in order: good hiking boots, poles, backpack.
Our starting point is the more than 1000 year old abbey of Saint Martin du Canigou in Casteil (France), which is inhabited by a young religious community “Les Béatitudes”. They live off donations from, among others, the more than 10,000 tourists they receive each year in this special place. Furthermore, their life consists of prayer. For this, they meet three times a day and individually spend time in silence. Our programme is adapted to the prayer times of this community.
