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.

Barefoot Healing Workshops

Posted March 6, 2012 | by Sue Kenney | in Blog | no responses

Eating organic, raw, nutricious meals, doing yoga/meditating, seeing holistic health practicioners and growing spiritually are all elements of a holistic aproach to life. There is one piece we may have forgotton and it’s right under our feet: Mother Earth. We started wearing shoes and it quickly became a gauge of status cutting us off from a life source. What lies in the ground provides our body with a key component to heal itself. This is my first workshop on Barefoot Healing. I’m quickly becoming an expert in this field and feel that I’ve been called to do this work. I welcome the chance to come to your community and speak/workshop.
