Pilgrim Blessings: The Way of St. James
The Ancient Pilgrim Path: Camino de Santiago
Since 2000, I dreamed of and envisioned walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain. My inspiration was first reading Shirley MacLaine’s book about her journey and experiences walking Camino de Santiago, and then I began to envision how that journey might be for me. I also envisioned not doing it alone!
I have a dear friend, Gloria, whom I’ve known for years. We both read MacLaine’s book and decided that we’d like to take that journey together. Our discussions turned into a plan, with actions and dates, and in September, 2015, we journeyed to Spain to fulfill our individual quests, together.
Since that experience, I have thought a lot about the value of that journey — what I gained and what I could discard as no longer useful in my life, as well as a delightful and challenging physically journey. I changed me and I will always be grateful for the experience, the insights, and the opportunities for growth.
Last year, I began writing about the journey as a gift to my family, and as I mentioned it to friends and colleagues, others expressed their interest in reading about my experience. So, this year, as I finished my Camino de Santiago travel memoir, I decided to offer it as a free download here. I hope you will find it enjoyable and perhaps be inspired to consider your personal journey from a broader perspective. I certainly have!
Enjoy! Here’s the link again.
