Walking the Ancient Spiritual Path of the Camino de Santiago

  • Galicia, Spain
  • Sep 15 - 23, 2019 (9 days)

About This Event

We invite you to join us as we walk the final 112 km (about 69 miles) of the Camino de Santiago from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela, Spain.  Walking this section of the path, you will be eligible to receive the pilgrim's credential upon arrival in Santiago, if you so choose.  You may be called to walk this path for a variety of reasons:  If you are looking for clarity and a way forward in your life,  if you are seeking to reconnect with your authentic self, or if this is simply something from your "bucket list,"  this is the ideal journey for you!

Our Heart-Centered Journey

We will interweave daily yoga practice, inspiration and group discussion with our pilgrimage as added pathways to open what you seek on this journey.  As we walk the path we will invite spiritual awakening, meet pilgrims from all over the world, and experience the wonder of a deeper knowing of the world and ourselves.

There are many ways to walk the Camino de Santiago.  With our package, we walk the last 112 km of the Camino Francés. You will be provided with beautiful three star hotels, baggage transport so you only need to carry a day pack, and many of your meals are also included.  We will have optional yoga every morning, as well as gatherings at the start and the end of the day to share with each other.  We will be joined and assisted by a local guide, who will give us lessons about the Way as well as provide overall support.  He will provide you with your pilgrim's passport and your pilgrim's shell - many of the details are taken care of for you.

The days will have a structure, but there is a lot of freedom.  We will meet for lunch and dinner, but will walk individually or in small groups, thus allowing you the flexibility to detour, walk in silence, or walk with people outside our group.  Much of the joy of this journey is in the people that you meet along the Way.

We also provide integration of the journey by including meeting (virtually or in person) for a day prior to departure, gathering for preparation in Madrid, traveling by train together from Madrid to Lugo, a day with a guide in Santiago de Compostela after finishing the walk and a closing ceremony at the coast. All of these additional experiences help to enrich your pilgrimage experience.

"It was awesome! You can’t know until you walk it. You can read every book, watch every film, but it cannot transmit the experience of being there & how it transforms something in your soul. Nancy & Angela did an amazing job.” Piper S., West Hartford, CT “What an amazing trip! It far exceeded my expectations. Walking the Camino was incredible and magical. Nancy, Angela and Jose were all wonderful guides. Jose's lunches were the best!" Renee H., West Hartford, CT
