Barefoot Walk for Creativity
Once again writers unite. This weekend is the Muskoka Novel Marathon, an event that promotes and raises money for literacy. I participated in 2004 and 2005, in both cases with Bruce Pirrie. We co-wrote 2 different manuscripts and raised money for this cause as well. In 2006 we went back with a crew to shoot a film about the event called FlipBook with a group of talented artists who created a film to share this cause with the world.

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!

Heidi Fiscus is a respected barefooter who writes a blog called Barefoot and Paleo. She was kind enough to purchase a pair of Barebottoms Original suede shoes and then offered to do a review that highly recommends them. And she’s offering a free giveaway but you’ll have to read her blog to find out more about that.

What’s on your back?
In 7 weeks a group of 8 people will embark on a new journey along the ancient medieval path known as the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Preparations are underway to gather the clothing, backpack, boots (or not) and everything that is needed, while still keeping the pack light. Some say the backpack is like a metaphor for your life journey. As pilgrims walk, often they leave things behind to lighten the load. At times it’s clothing or a bottle of shampoo that is too heavy, at other times, it’s an old idea or belief that is not working for them anymore.

If you’ve been thinking about it for sometime now, it might be time to make a decision and just do it!
The Camino in Spain has experienced a surge in popularity thanks to the film The Way with Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez. More people are aware of it’s mystical powers. People come from all over the world. There are hostals for pilgrims along the way and a pilgrim meal that is served in many of the restaurants. In Santiago you’ll receive a compostela, the certificate that writes you into the history books forever.
