William Howell, founder of ..., 1 June 2013 [cached]
William Howell, founder of Sanctuary House, has been inspired to create a wonderful experience in Crestone for spiritual pilgrims. Here is what he says about it.
Sanctuary House Publications, 1 Jan 2001 [cached]
When the Supreme Takes a Body: The Immortal Journey of Shri Punitachariji Maharaj by Swami Vishnudatta 612 p. $27 [available in August, 2012] Siddha Vaidya: The Primordial Medical Science An Introduction by William Howell 86 p. $12 The most ancient health-care system on the Earth is also the most natural and sustainable.
Collected Poems: 1981 - 2011 by William Howell 189 p. $14 These poems presenting themselves for thirty years arise out of the unique yet universal journey of someone like you...someone who is still questing for solid ground on which to stand, yet who has sojourned enough to know that this ground is pure mystery...deep within what we call the heart, a heart fully connected to Nature, to our own nature, to the canopy of stars, to the timelessness of human adventure, to the authentic light that takes-but only seemingly-so long to reach us. May you find your journey confirmed here-as well as illuminated and inspired by one of your unmet kin. Cult: A Memoir 1981 - 2011 by William Howell 189 p. $14 The knowledge of cults is vital in terms of assisting individuals and groups to function humanly. If seeming foreign, cults can draw very well-meaning people who, if they survive the pressurized intensity of cult life, often gain a wisdom that books cannot deliver. This memoir is a first-hand account of a cult lofty in promise and equally dangerous in actuality. This book offers not only deep insight for anyone interested in how a cult functions--for they all work in very similar fashions-- but also an innoculation designed to give just enough experience with cultdom so you will not yourself have to suffer the hellacious ride that was the strange destiny of the five souls whom you are about to meet. Cults are inherently fascinating--they'll not go away--because they use the lower drives (security, esteem and control) found in every individual. To read this story is to learn how the interior longings of we, caught in the human condition, epitomize the drama in every life since the beginning of time. William Howell, a teacher and writer, has studied with adepts in all the major spiritual traditions. He and his wife live in Crestone, CO, where they founded Sanctuary House. The Author

The organizers of this event are William and Barbara Howell who are no strangers to the pilgrim's path.
Below is an article which William wrote for The Huffington Post describing some pilgrim's lore and history, as well as his vision of initiating Crestone as a town of destiny and destination of inter-faith pilgrimage.
Camino de Crestone: The World's First Full Interfaith Pilgrimage
Posted on The Huffington Post, 04/30/2013, by William Howell
(The article in its original form with beautiful pictures of our locale, as well as Blog commentary, can be seen here.)
About William Howell- poet, author, retreat master, meditation teacher - has had the great fortune to have studied immersively with adept teachers in the main spirituo-religious traditions of our planet. He founded Sanctuary House (an inter-religious-educational non-profit:) in 1992, co-founded Crestone Charter School in 1995, helped bring the Crestone End-of-Life Project into being in 2007, and now is spearheading the Camino de Crestone.
William also wrote a nice article for our local monthly newspaper, The Crestone Eagle, which appeared in this month's May, 2013, edition, which you can see here.
To walk the Camino de Crestone, pilgrims do not need to have any significant litany of any kind of spiritual or religious practice; nor does one need to be any kind of experienced hiker. William describes the experience as "seven days of mini-intensives…designed to be a grand opportunity that is life- affirming, an education unlike any other.
As a Crestone person, and an Earth citizen, I applaud William and Barbara Howell's dream and manifestation of the Camino de Crestone.
