It is a retreat in which you are totally connected to God. You have a "guide" that transports you to the location of the walk, but you don't know where you are. There are no clocks, so you don't know what time it is, as you are supposed to be focusing on God. I've heard it is a very rewarding experience. That's the little I know about it.

Default Emmaus

As Rustler mentioned, it's a retreat where you are placed totally in the hands of Christian brothers (or sisters). You listen to a series of small talks and experience God's love for you through series of surprising activities. I highly recommend it for any Christian to enhance their relationship with Christ.

Rustler, If you can't go yet, ask your youth leader about a Chrysalis walk. It has a lot of similarities.
BTW, where are you from? I live in Franklin (just 1/2 hour S. of Indy)

Stealthy, where are you? I might be able to find someone in your area who can talk with you about it. (Or sponsor you on a walk).

I've heard about Chrysalis walks, but haven't ever participated. I live in Terre Haute. I know where Franklin is .

I'm in Hong Kong. I think our church has something to do with it. I might go if it comes up again.

Thanks, I'll see if I can gather some of my buddies and maybe my Dad. My friend should have his Grand Motorsports DragSpec up and running soon. We stripped the plastic wheel hubs last summer after hitting a few rocks going nearly 60 .
