Read about how many pilgrims are walking the Camino from different countries. Spanish pilgrim numbers are down. Numbers of US pilgrims are up 90%!
I wonder how people are handling the journey back home.

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.

is the kind of life experience that offers you the chance to embark on a journey to a sacred path to practice this way of being. The Camino de Santiago de Compostela is a medieval pilgrimage route in Spain that people have been walking for over 1100 years. It’s origins are a Roman Catholic pilgrimage route, however, today pilgrims come from all different backgrounds and beliefs. It is open to everyone. For seven years now Sue Kenney has guided a group of pilgrims along the Camino for 11 days covering up to 225 kilometers. She is an expert pilgrim and has created this special journey for people who don’t want to go alone.
We held the first Camino Conference Call with Sue Kenney on December 27, 2012 and had a great response. Once again we are offering it for FREE. Learn all about the Camino and what to expect if you are thinking about walking with our group in May or September 2013 or if you choose to walk alone.

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.

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….
