What we're about
This group is geared towards anyone interested in the Camino de Santiago who want to walk with kindred souls. I have walked 10 Camino journeys of various lengths and routes and now offer advice to those considering this pilgrimage.
There are many Camino routes in Europe - the most famous is the 800 km Camino Francais. These routes have been walked for centuries by seekers who are wanting to get more clarity in their lives. I walked this pilgrimage in 2011 after a series of events in my life brought to to a place of not knowing what was next for me. That journey shifted my life profoundly. I went back to the Camino in 2013 for a deeper connection and made a decision to start a spiritual adventure company.
Now a Camino and spiritual coach I created this group as a give back to the community. I find that the combination of walking and talking in a supportive environment very powerful. You do not have to be interested in the Camino to get benefit from the group. This group will be of interest to anyone interested in some local walks combined with being able to ask questions about how they can deal with things in their lives. It is also of interest to anyone who is interested in walking the Camino and would love to train/walk with someone who has walked the Camino multiple times.
The walks will be at a very moderate pace - during my first Camino one of my big lessons was how much I had been rushing my whole life and the injuries to my legs forced me to slow down substantially in order to finish. As a long time competitive type it was interesting to get to a place where I enjoyed being last and in a place of calm connectedness to all that is.
