Chris will share with us his experiences how he has gone about creating his own flourishing online community to connect those wishing to learn with those seeking to teach them.We’ll all be answering questions again live at the end.

WALKING THE CAMINO: SIX WAYS TO SANTIAGOsafe_image

Doc Days of Summer: Presenting encores of the summer’s best documentaries.

Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago follows travellers from the ages of three to 73, as they attempt a pilgrimage across an entire country on foot, carrying only a backpack, a pair of boots and an open mind. Driven by an inexplicable calling and a grand sense of adventure, each pilgrim throws their heart and soul into their physical trek to Spain’s Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, and into their personal journey to find themselves. This 500-mile trek is no small undertaking, yet more than 200,000 people attempt the arduous journey across the rugged landscape each year. Whatever their motivation, no one can predict just how their paths will unfold, or what transformations they will undergo as they reach the trail’s end. Featuring breathtaking vistas, the Camino comes to life in this inspiring look at its magnetic

photo 1 (2) In Step One, we covered some reasons people might want to go barefoot and how to overcome the fears and social barriers that might get in the way. In Step Two, we’re going to delve into what it’s really like going barefoot (outside your home!) and what to expect out of it.

We’ll talk about our own definitions of what it means to be “barefooters,” discuss the wide variety of physical and social environments in which barefooting is both possible and practical, and offer strategies for making it work for people who want to do it.

We’ll be discussing our own experiences: Sue Regan Kenney (designer of Barebottom Shoes) will talk about her recent 225km barefoot walk on the Camino, and Stephanie Welch (author of the upcoming Human Body User Manual will share her experiences in both urban and natural environments. We’ll also both share our experiences and perspectives on barefoot running.DSC_1007
