Camino Compostela's

El Camino de Santiago de Compostela

Sorrow StonesSorrow Stones It meanders up hills, through wheat fields and vineyards, alongside hedgerows filled with blackberries. There are huge, open skies and the mountain of  O'Cebreiro as you enter ancient Galicia, land of soft rains and eucalyptus forests. It's a place of peace. People come to the path for different reasons. To have a love affair with themselves, to gain clarity, to ask for forgiveness and a few walk in the name of someone who can't. Each reason is perfect. Is the Camino calling you? People from all over the world are meeting on this incredible path to share experiences, an adventure and a potentially life changing opportunity. You don't have to plan anything, it's all done for you!

Join expert pilgrim Sue Kenney as your Camino guide and coach and step into the footsteps of millions of pilgrims who have walked this path before you. We’ll follow the Camino Frances route of the medieval pilgrimage path known as the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in the north of Spain. Women and men of all ages and backgrounds are welcome. Walk the Camino Pilgrimage Retreat Program Are you ready to take the first step? It doesn’t matter how far you walk on the Camino, it’s more about going on a journey that calls you. The Camino is like a portal for creativity and it’s believed that we can manifest more intensely on this mystical path. Reconnect with yourself, walk to clear your thoughts, engage in conversation with people of like minds from all over the world and ignite the fire within you to live with passion. You will be inspired, engaged and integrated into the Spanish culture, walking through the ancient villages, eating food from the local family farms and sharing the path with other pilgrims and, cows and sheep. You are not obligated to walk as a group and in fact encouraged to take the opportunity to be alone with yourself at times. We walk in the rain and in the sun to experience nature at its best. Meeting people from all over the world and sharing stories is also an important element of this retreat. We will walk on average 20 kilometers a day through beautiful landscapes, undulating terrain and we will spend time walking in the mountains and forests. At each stop, the accommodation is booked for you and in private pilgrim albergues, rural pensions or hotels in double, triple accommodations.

    Hello Sue! Very much planning to walk with you this coming May… Tried to make it for Oct.2015 but health issues made it impossible. I should be in good shape by next spring! For past reference, you and I shared a car-ride to Toronto possibly back in 2003-4 or 5? We shared a wonderful friend in Judy Rogers from Gravenhurst, who’s since passed away. Looking forward to my trek on the camino… a long, long time coming.. and right on time. 😉

    all good things,
    Lynn (now residing in Guelph, ON)

    ps. Funny, I took a picture of myself similar to yours with the long shadows on one of the long roads back on the grounds of the Jesuit Ignasius Centre close to my home… Have you ever held a workshop here? Truly inspiring place!

      Lynn
      So lovely to hear from you. I did not know of Judy’s passing. So sorry to hear. It’s been a long time since I saw you though I vaguely rememember the ride. Funny how life put us together so long ago.

      I would love to walk the Camino with you. I’ll send you the package by email.

      Much love and light,
      Sue
      ps love those long shadow pics
