Finding and building Community.
Co-Hosted by Sue Kenney and Stephanie Welch.
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 delved into what it’s really like going barefoot (outside your home!) and what to expect out of it. In Step Three, we’ll talk about finding and building community with other barefooters, including hearing from our special guest, Chris Fielding of Barefoot Beginner.You’re not alone! In this webinar, we’ll talk about the challenges of isolation and rejection that can occur as a result of taking this less trodden path, but more importantly how to get support in taking on this challenge through existing communities, both online and in your local area. Chris will share with us his experiences how he has gone about creating his own flourishing online community to connect those wishing to learn with those seeking to teach them.We’ll all be answering questions again live at the end.

WALKING THE CAMINO: SIX WAYS TO SANTIAGO
Doc Days of Summer: Presenting encores of the summer’s best documentaries.
Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago follows travellers from the ages of three to 73, as they attempt a pilgrimage across an entire country on foot, carrying only a backpack, a pair of boots and an open mind. Driven by an inexplicable calling and a grand sense of adventure, each pilgrim throws their heart and soul into their physical trek to Spain’s Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, and into their personal journey to find themselves. This 500-mile trek is no small undertaking, yet more than 200,000 people attempt the arduous journey across the rugged landscape each year. Whatever their motivation, no one can predict just how their paths will unfold, or what transformations they will undergo as they reach the trail’s end. Featuring breathtaking vistas, the Camino comes to life in this inspiring look at its magnetic

This is a fantastic article that came out in Yahoo Food written by Julia Bainbridge. It is a movement folks.
Assuming that when you entertain you’re doing so in your own home, you can do it however you want. You can serve eggplant because you’ve been craving it all week. You can play “Birth of the Cool” on repeat for the entire evening. And you don’t have to wear shoes if you don’t want to.

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.

On Friday night, the Juno and Gemini award-winning singer/composer/song writer Sarah Slean stepped out on the main stage in a gorgeous white dress and teal blue Barebottom Shoes. She drew attention to her dress calling it a “Jetson’s Dress” and then I heard the words from the back of the audience. Sarah pointed out her Barebottom Shoes! She said wearing them made her feel like a forest nymph. Then she suggested the audience go to my booth and buy a pair. What an incredible testimonial! Crowds visited us throughout the weekend and lots of people tried on the shoes and bought too.

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!
