In 2012 Saunsea began an “adventure into the unknown” by simply walking the coasts of Northern California and Oregon to see who we would meet and be able to serve in some way. That 600+ mile pilgrimage transformed his life and inspired him to become a pilgrim.
In 2015, inspired by the life and mission of Peace Pilgrim, Saunsea began to walk for peace. He would then walk the entire length of the Oregon Coast in 2015, 2016 and 2018.
In 2018 he created Peacewalking.org to encourage people all around the world walk for peace, based on the philosophy that “if you want to fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
