A truly beautiful testimonial to recieve around the anniversary of my arrival in Santiago on my first Camino in 2001. Many thanks.
Unfortunately, I was unable to have the privilege of hearing and seeing you in London, Ontario a number of weeks ago, when you spoke to the pilgrim group at St. John the Evangelist Church.

Sue Kenney – Author, Coach and Camino Guide
I had the pleasure of walking the Camino with Sue as my coach and guide in May of 2015. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE.
Sue’s values drive her behavior and that in turn makes for a caring, professional and always enjoyable experience. Before our walk, Sue coached us via conference call on what to expect from Albergue’s to cash to cell phones. The group established guiding principles, which really solidified our coming together as a team. She also laid out a comprehensive walking program so that we were physically able for our daily walks. When we arrived in Spain, we were more than ready and able.

Mi Camino – by Sue Kenney
Translation by Alberto Agraso
It is with great honour that I offer the Spanish translation of My Camino in the language of the people of Spain, whre I experienced a shift that changed the course of my life forever. El Camino de Santiago de Compostela is a medieval pilgrimage route that people have been walking for over 1000 years. When I walked in 2001 very few people in Canada or the USA knew about the route and therefore many thought that I had lost my mind!

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.

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

I love the thrill of living a simple life, carrying a backpack and just walking everyday. To be honest though, there is always a little fear thrown in, even as a seasoned pilgrim I never know what the Camino has in store for my group or for me.

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!”
