In late 2017 and early 2018, Leon traveled to the Kurdistan region of Northern Iraq as a Fellow of the Abraham Path Initiative. His goal was simply to look at the history of journeys on foot in an area that has always been a thoroughfare; who were the traders, pilgrims, armies and refugees that found their way into and through these mountains? In this talk, Leon will share how he visited ancient communities, immersed himself in the sacred Yazidi faith, and witnessed mystic rituals of the Sufi tribe.
