Blog – Walking the Camino barefoot!

Posted October 26, 2015 | by Sue Kenney | in Barefoot | no responses

Sue BF in village back 2014-05-25-0549-Camino de Santiago-MA great way to train for the Camino is to walk barefoot. Start in your home, then step outside to the backyard or a park. Go slowly as you are adapting your entire body to a new way of walking. Your alignment is shifted because you are walking with your heels on the ground.

Sue Kenney – Author, Coach and Camino GuideSue kneeling

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.

 Floating Lotus







Presents best-selling author of My Camino Sue Kenney

Journey to the Soul

After being suddenly downsized from her corporate career, Sue Kenney wasn’t sure what to do with her life. A world masters rowing champion and mother of 3 teenagers, she left her ordinary world to embark on a spiritual journey as a simple pilgrim. She walked 500 miles over 29 days across the north of Spain on a medieval pilgrimage called the Camino de Santiago. She went alone, in the winter and returned home with a vision to share the idea of the Camino as a metaphor of a life journey with purpose. It was through the art of storytelling, she found her voice. Sue embraced a barefoot lifestyle at home and on the Camino.  Join us to hear Sue’s stories and insights into this life changing experience.

Mi Camino – by Sue Kenney

Translation by Alberto Agraso

Mi Camino front cover

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!
