Walking Camino de Santiago offers you time and space to engage, listen and connect. A unique and rare experience where a walking adventure has you meeting with people from every corner of the world. People you would generally walk past in your busy day.
You glimpse the simplicity and connection of life.
The question “what bought you to Camino” opens you, you find yourself sharing stories about life rather than “who” you are or what you “do”. Stripped back of worldly masks and labels, you are another pilgrim, a part of the Camino Family. Your daily task, move from one location to another.
Returning home, your energy has shifted, yet the world around you is the same. It is common to feel unsettled as you muddle your way back into your everyday way of living. However, It is possible, and essential for you to bring Camino home.
Create new habits and routines
Allow time to connect with your community, family, work colleagues, and everyone and anyone that passes your way!
Walk to the shops instead of driving and talk to strangers on your way. Catch a bus, tram, train or plane make eye contact, and engage in conversation with the people you are near. Get to know your work colleagues, ask them something personal. Engage a stranger in conversation at the supermarket, ask how their day has been… you never know it may be the most profound conversation you ever have!
Bring Camino home by Connecting with the earth… Get out and about into the sunshine… walk in the rain… watch a sunrise or sunset… lay under a tree in the grass… make time to smell a rose growing in the sun or watch a butterfly dancing in the air… Allow yourself time to be real, authentic, and open… then see what surprises life has in store for you!
