A Journey Back to Yourself

with Sue Kenney

What is holding you back from being your greatest gift to the world? After being suddenly downsized from her corporate telecom position, Sue Kenney made the decision to walk 780 kilomters on the medieval pilgrimage route in Spain known as the Camino to gain some clarity about what to do with her life. Wearing a heavy backpack loaded with all her personal belongings she is forced to lighten her load by letting go of what isn't serving her. With each step she took forward she walked back to herself and discovered how to physically and metaphorically simplify her journey by choosing to leave the excess baggage behind. With the grace of a humble pilgrim, Sue takes us on her personal journey of self-discovering and imparts the lessons about how to apply the virtues of being a  modern day pilgrim, to create what we truly desire in life. Watch a 5 minute video about 6 women who walk the Camino.
