On October 5th, I started My Camino Group Pilgrimage Retreat with a group of 6 pilgrims. We arrive in Samos and spent some time at the 6th Century Monastery there and the next day we travelled to Sarria to begin. We walked the last 115 kilometers to Santiago, Spain as our destination.

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.

All About the Camino
Thursday August 13, 2015 at 7:00 pm EST.
Today many people are aware of the Camino pilgrimage route in Spain thanks to great films like The Way, the Camino Documenary: Six Ways to Santiago and Las Peregrinas. Some people like to walk alone and others prefer to be in a group. For the last 10 years Sue Kenney, best-selling author of the book My Camino, has been leading groups on this famous medieval pilgrimage route and she has a lot of experience. On this Google Hangout, Sue will share some of her experiences walking 800 kms alone in 2001 and what she has learned leading multiple groups. We will cover: A short history of the Camino and why pilgrims walk. What time of year is best. You’ll learn what the trail/path is like and what to to wear. A couple of tips on training and walking barefoot to strengthen your feet, avoid injuries and blisters. (Sue has walked the last 3 Camino’s barefoot.) To carry or not carry a backpack. What the accommodation is like and how to avoid not having a place to stay. Bathroom facilities. Camino etiquette and more. You will have a chance to email your questions during the call and Sue will endeavour to answer as many as possible. To open the possibility for more people to experience the Camino, Sue is offering a $600.00 busary to offset the Fees for the October Group Camino. To apply contact firstname.lastname@example.org

WALKING THE CAMINO: SIX WAYS TO SANTIAGO
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

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.
Based on feedback and questions from the first webinar we held in May, we have even more facts, tips and ideas to share with you along the way. And we’ll be answering more questions again live at the end. (Be sure to add yours in the Q&A app, either in advance or during the event!) We will announce a special offer on the purchase of Barebottom Shoes on the website www.barebottomshoes.com at the end of the Webinar. Don’t miss it!
Know someone you’d like to share more about barefooting with? Feel free to invite friends and family by forwarding them this registration link.
