A Mindful Adventure on El Camino

Find your center in an uncentered world.
Therein lies your power.
A Mindful Adventure on El Camino de Santiago, Spain
May 18 - 26, 2020  (Leon to Villafranca del Bierzo)
September 14 - 22, 2020 (Pamplona to Logroño)

Leave behind your cares and worries. 

Find your power by immersing in a journey of growth.  It's there inside you, waiting to be seen.

The world needs it now.

Pick that area of life where you would like more power. 

 

Maybe it's dealing with stress or anxiety, letting go of a loss, or a need to create something new for yourself or loved ones.  Whatever it is, decide that you have that power.

 

Then go on an empowerment journey with us.

During your journey along El Camino, you will find your center of power by:

  • immersing in empowerment practices

  • engaging with diverse community perspectives

  • focusing your energy on a goal

  • letting go of resistance and self-doubt

  • enjoying all that Spain has to offer

  • empowering your life's journey  

  • building sustainable and inclusive power

Join us as we walk the path together, centering ourselves in daily mindful, restorative and alignment practices.

For thousands of years, pilgrims have empowered their lives on El Camino de Santiago.

The Program

A Mindful Adventure on El Camino offers five core program elements that make it unique from other excursions:  

  • Meditation techniques to build focus and clarity while walking

  • Restorative yoga to release the day’s journey and recharge the body

  • Journaling to capture key insights that have arisen during the day

  • Practicing present moment awareness as a way of being

  • Group discussion, sharing and coaching on challenges

Central to each component is the development of personal power through discernment.  The ability to make choices about how to respond, rather than reacting blindly to stimulus, is at the heart of our purpose.

For our midday meal, we will share a communal feast after check-in at the day’s destination. Small restaurants have been selected, specializing in delicious three-course menus sourced from the local fields and vineyards we walked through.

 

Evenings are free to explore the surrounding village, share with fellow travelers or spend time in introspection.

Be nourished by the peace and power of nature.

The Path

Enjoy your days walking through the beauty of Spain’s most celebrated wine regions.  

Visit medieval villages, sleep in historic buildings.

Travel as a true pilgrim, in a unique curated group experience. Embrace the support of community while having the freedom and space to honor your own needs.

 

During our retreat, you will have very few distractions.  Your purpose will simply be to walk, eat, sleep and connect – to live in the present.  

 

And to be open to the insights that come from whatever crosses your path.

The pilgrim community is connected by commonality of purpose.

 

It creates a very special environment.

Purpose

Citizens from countries around the world walk El Camino each year.  They bring their backpacks, their unique life experiences, and their openness to something greater. 

 

Each has the potential to serve as your teacher or simply as a fellow journeyman.

Whether you walk the path simply to experience a new adventure, explore your limits and grow, move beyond a challenging situation, or to create something new for yourself - you will be supported.

Your journey begins the moment you decide to walk.
