Sue Kenney interview on Barefooting on KICX 106
One of the happiest memories I have as a child is going barefoot on the beach of Lake Couchiching. Just thinking of it brings a smile to my face. Join this workshop and discover the healing powers of being BAREFOOT. Not only will you improve your posture, balance and flexibility, learn about how you can help your body to heal itself. Now is the time to prepare your feet indoors so you’re ready for bare footing when the weather improves. Learn about EARTHING or grounding. The Great Mother provides us with free electrons that our body needs to contribute to a natural healing process. Wearing shoes has cut us off from this incredible gift the earth has to offer. Learn how you can integrate this forgotten component of a holistic approach to everyday life. It’s organic and it’s right under our feet!

Don’t do this at home! I have climatized your feet to walking barefoot in the cold and snow and it’s my second winter barefoot. I take my shoes with me always, along with a pair of socks too. Even at minus 14 Celcius it’s liberating.

Blisters. Almost everyone gets them on the Camino. The trick is to keep your feet dry. For many years I avoided them completely by putting vaseline on my feet every morning and changing my socks partway through the day. (if you’re barefoot you don’t get them) n May each year I guide a group of pilgrims along the Camino, a medival route following the footsteps of millions of people. You’ll be guided to prepare for the journey physically, mentally and spiritually and learn expert tips. We’ll walk over 200 kilometers in 11 days together. If you want a package about estimated expenses, what’s planned and how to sign up contact me directly. Read about it http://lnkd.in/VhsnU4 It’s the journey of a lifetime.

If you liked My Camino, the continuing saga of the Camino experience is told in my second book, Confessions of a Pilgrim. I went back to the Camino to walk the Portuguese Route. Prior to leaving a Native friend had a dream about me where she was told to provide me a sacred Eagle Feather that I was to give to someone on my way. The spiritual journey continues….
