Full Description

Embark on a pilgrimage to discover something new about yourself. It isn’t so much a choice you make, as a response to a call already whispered to you. In the experience of encounter with unfamiliarity, you are able to move out of your assumptions, expectations, and preconceived ideas, as a new way of seeing yourself and the world emerges.

Savor spacious time, reunite body, mind, and spirit in meaningful and sacred travel, and connect with fellow seekers while walking the famed pilgrimage trail of El Camino de Santiago, Spain. This unique, slow-paced walking pilgrimage explores the little known parts of El Camino, following Spain’s dramatic coastline while building community, engaging ritual, practicing sacred silence, and opening to personal encounters with local people and stunning landscape.

Last year, this pilgrimage filled quickly, just by word of mouth, so if you are interested, please reserve your place and begin planning for the experience of a lifetime!

Price: $3499.00 per person double occupancy; single supplement is $650.00. A non-refundable deposit of $500.00 per person is required to reserve your space. The full balance is due by June 16, 2016.
