Is it calling you?
Would you love to transform or heal something in your life? Or are you looking for new direction?
Would you like to walk a most enchanting and mystical section of this ancient pilgrimage guided by two Camino enthusiasts?
Express your interest and book your spot on this journey of transformation and exploration for this September 2019.
Take the inner and outer journey on El Camino De Santiago de Compostela, known as the way of St James and the way of the Stars, accompanied by two passionate pilgrims, Darene and Sylvie.
Place your feet on this ancient route for two weeks of the final 250km of this incredible and renowned pilgrimage, across beautiful Spain.
Prepare for wonderment and renewal on an extraordinary journey of the heart and soul, and feel that you are home. Darene and Sylvie can’t wait to walk with you across the stunning natural landscapes and through quaint villages steeped in history.
This unique opportunity includes an intimate and magical half day retreat experience at Flores Del Camino, a restored traditional Maragato house, where we will immerse ourselves in the history of the Camino, the art of pilgrimage and sacred ritual. We will complete our experience here by making some beautiful designs based on Camino sacred architecture.
We will stay in a variety of hand-picked, quaint, simple accommodation destinations, with the intent of pilgrimage in mind. We will allow the journey to unfold serendipitously in true Camino style, to deepen your experience with the enigmatic road, that is El Camino.
Sylvie and Darene invite you to share in the delight of their own past experiences on their pilgrimages through Spain and Italy; to find the satisfaction of walking each day, with pure joy, stillness, friendship and deep connection with yourself. It is our wish that you experience a sense of achievement, an appreciation for the robust Spanish culture and create memories that will forever be etched in your heart.
Connection with the group, walking alone and meeting other pilgrims will be encouraged. We will walk an average of 20km per day.
An exciting addition ~ Darene, a FasterEFT practitioner (tapping), will lead you in setting your intentions for the journey in a healing capacity and guide you through until your arrival in Santiago de Compostela. This will include group activity and one personal session. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to enjoy creative writing and poetry, yoga, Qi Gong and a massage.
Our journey will begin on the 5th of September in the pretty, historic city of Astorga, one of the first European cities to produce chocolate and known for its Roman ruins and its Episcopal Palace, designed by modernist, Antonio Gaudi. We suggest that flights be booked into Madrid as a convenient entry point, and are to be arranged by travellers, independently. Further details will be supplied, pending interest. Our journey will end in Santiago, the capital of Galicia, at the famous Cathedral and alleged burial site of the Apostle, St James. We will attend a pilgrim blessing in the Church of San Francisco, obtain our Compostela certificates and spend two nights immersed in the culture and buzz of this beautiful city, in celebration.
So Dear Traveller….
No matter where you are right now, your life is always beginning, and we couldn’t think of a more magical place to start – following the glittering reach of the Milky Way and a path of history, longing and healing, dating back to the 9thCentury.
We invite you to walk a while, pause, find your light, your own North Star, and just be there. If ever there was a place, this is it.
Life coach, Martha Beck, wrote the following about “living while you are alive” and fulfilling your destiny. To Sylvie and I it feels like a thrilling excerpt of pilgrimage…
“No other person will ever walk the path that destiny has laid out for you, but along that path, you’ll come home to a thousand different places. You will meet your mother, your father, your twin, yourself, in a thousand different bodies. Even on the loneliest night, when it seems there is no one else on earth willing to travel such a strange and magical road, you will find your tribe out walking among the stars.”
Feeling inspired? Come walk with us…
Traveller, there is no path.
The path is made by walking..
