A mindful adventure
Leave behind stress and conflict
Pick that area of life where you would like more peace, balance and wellbeing.
Maybe it's coping with stress or anxiety, letting go of a loss, finding new purpose or creating something new for yourself or loved ones.
Whatever it is, your journey starts by taking the first step towards that new place.
Learn new skills that help you long after you return home. Be supported on your journey with a curated group of fellow pilgrims.
And have the adventure of a lifetime.
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
~ Lao Tzu
The path we take
Learn to walk at your own pace
For thousands of years, pilgrims have found balance, clarity and resilience on El Camino de Santiago.
Allow yourself to be nourished by the power and peace of this ancient path.
Enjoy your days walking through the beauty of Spain’s most celebrated wine regions, mesetas and mountains.
Visit medieval villages, sleep in historic buildings, and explore UNESCO world heritage sites.
And to be open to the insights that come from whatever crosses your path.
A supportive program
Mindfulness enhances your experience
Walking meditation practices develop discernment, your ability to make choices about how to respond.
Restorative yoga renews your body after the day’s walk.
Personal coaching helps you find clarity. Shared experiences help you to grow.
Enjoy a communal feast sourced from fields and vineyards you walked through.
Perfect as a complete retreat, or to gain confidence and mindful skills as you walk on toward Santiago.
Life is pure adventure. The sooner we realize that,
the sooner we will be able to treat life as art.
~ Maya Angelou
A common purpose
Generosity of spirit abounds
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.
A conversation on the path, a glass of wine, a shared breakfast, a helping hand. Or a hundred other possibilities. Each encounter leaves you better than where you started.
In our changing world, pilgrims also bring consideration and safe practices - along with a respect for the health of others.
