The Power of Inner Peace

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

 

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 with the first step.

 

Take that step, and go on an empowerment journey with us.

During your time on El Camino, you will find your center of power by:

  • immersing in meditation, restorative & empowering practices

  • developing equanimity in the face of whatever arises

  • focusing your energy on a goal and achieving it

  • letting go of resistance and self-doubt

  • being supported as your authentic self

  • nurturing your innate loving kindness

  • engaging with diverse community perspectives

  • enjoying all that Spain has to offer

  • absorbing the vital energy of nature

  • connecting with a higher power 

  • building practices to sustain you throughout life

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

 

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.

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 Path
 
 
The Program

Seven core program elements make these adventures unique from any other retreat:  

  • Meditation techniques to build focus and clarity while walking

  • Restorative yoga to release and recharge the body

  • Journaling to capture key insights of the day

  • Practicing present moment awareness as a way of being

  • Embodying the practice of letting go of the unnecessary

  • Curated group discussion, sharing and coaching on challenges

  • Active enjoyment and gratitude of the beauty and bounty surrounding us.

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.

 

The pilgrim community is connected by commonality of purpose. It creates a very special environment.

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.

They also bring mindfulness and safe practices in our changing world, along with a respect for the health of others.

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.
