About the Author
Mary lives in Seattle, Washington (USA) with her husband and three children. She has traveled to Iona many times, both on personal pilgrimage and as a retreat leader for vocational discernment retreats for university students. Her personal studies of Celtic Christianity have led her to pursue graduate studies in theology with an urban ecological focus. She has the hopeful vision of sharing with urban communities about our inherent need for Creation and how to live forward in such a way that honors Other and the Future. Currently her field practice is that of a Forest Steward for one of Seattle's south end urban forests; she is co-chairing the restoration process of these woods to provide urban youth and families with a safe and welcoming forest in which to recreate. She has recently been awarded Seattle's 2013 Denny Award for Conservation and Environmental Stewardship. http://www.cheastymtview.com/ Waymarkers is a result of Mary's own personal pilgrimage to Iona.

In Waymarkers, Mary DeJong has written a wise workbook that encourages interaction before, during and after your journey to Iona, sprinkled with poetry, wise quotes, prayers and other helpful references - alongside just enough travel information to help you on the journey but not so much that you will not feel the wonder and surprise of your new experience.
This wee book will be in my bag as I'm preparing for my next Iona pilgrimage, as well as with me when I leave and close at hand when I return home..
