Broken Eggs and Beer

Posted August 9, 2015 | by Sue Kenney | in News | no responses

On the Camino you can have “broken eggs” and beer. I’m not much of a fan of beer but I had to try Peregrina. Walking the Camino is all about spending time with yourself, with others, communal eating and sleeping, meeting people from all over the world and being in nature, regardless of the weather. Are you ready to try it? Peregrina beer

Is the Camino on your bucket list?

My Camino Pilgrimage Retreat


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!

Posted April 9, 2015 | by Sue Kenney | in Barebottom Shoes | no responses

Blogger…It’s all About Feet wrote this great article on her experience going barefoot and how Barebottoms helped her overcome her fears.

Why I Love The Idea Of BareBottom Shoes, The Real Barefoot Shoe
It has to be said that ever since I was very young, I’ve always loved the idea of being barefoot. Now I’m not just talking about slipping off my socks while in the house watching TV here, I mean really being barefoot – As in leaving the socks off, shoes at home, and getting out and about and living my daily life in bare feet.

Barefoot Healing Workshop

September 27, 2014. 9am-noon.

with Sue Kenney

Watch Rogers Daytime on Wednesday September 24 at 11am, 4pm and 11pm to see Sue talking about the healing benefits of barefooting in the home, the studio and outdoors. 

Join this workshop and discover the healing powers of going BAREFOOT. Not only will you improve your posture, balance and flexibility, you can help your body to heal itself. You have 7000 sensory nerve endings on the bottom of each foot and their job is to help your body adapt all the systems to the environment you are in. Through the studies done on Earthing or grounding, we have learned that we connect with negatively charged electrons in the earth. They are the most powerful antioxidants known and neutralize free radicals to contribute to a natural healing process . Wearing shoes with rubber soles has cut us off from this incredible gift the earth has to offer. It involves more than just taking off your shoes.
Learn about nature’s healing and how you can integrate this forgotten component of a holistic approach to everyday life.
