Journey to the Soul

After being suddenly downsized from her corporate career, Sue Kenney wasn’t sure what to do with her life. A world masters rowing champion and mother of 3 teenagers, she left her ordinary world to embark on a spiritual journey as a simple pilgrim. She walked 500 miles over 29 days across the north of Spain on a medieval pilgrimage called the Camino de Santiago. She went alone, in the winter and returned home with a vision to share the idea of the Camino as a metaphor of a life journey with purpose. It was through the art of storytelling, she found her voice. Sue embraced a barefoot lifestyle at home and on the Camino.  Join us to hear Sue’s stories and insights into this life changing experience. www.suekenney.ca

My Camino Pilgrimage Retreat

SPECIAL BOOK BY May 31, 2016 for 10% off FEES on FALL Retreat! Spring SOLD OUT

I have just returned from walking the Camino with a group covering 225 kms over 11 days of walking. I learned that many people now have the Camino on their bucket list. It is something they want to do at some point in their life. Having walked with 10 groups and several times by myself, I can only say it is a very noble thing to do and takes some degree of courage. That is why I offer group conference calls and personal coaching with my Camino retreats. I prepare people for the journey ahead. We talk about what it is to be a pilgrim, to simplify life and be more aware of what is important. If you want to walk this incredible path in Spain, but you do not want to figure everything our on your own, this is the perfect solution. We do it all for you and you do not have to carry your backpack, if you do not want to, either. Read on to find out what our package is all about!

Offer to leave your intention on the Camino

Posted September 27, 2015 | by Sue Kenney | in Camino | no responses

When I walk the Camino, I walk for the world. In one week I’ll be on my way to Spain to walk the Camino with my lovely group of pilgrims. It is such an honour to return to the path that had a profound shift in my life. On my first journey in 2001 I learned that I could pick up a stone along the path of the Camino and put my sorrow, or the sorrow of others, into it. When I set the stone down, I left the sorrow behind and it opened my heart for more love. I’d like to offer to pick up a stone for you. If you have a particular intention (it doesn’t have to be sorrow)you would like me to put into the stone, I will set it down on the path. You can post your intention here or email me kenneysue at gmail.com if you prefer confidentiality.
