You know how people say the “real” Camino begins in Santiago? No one ever tells us what you’re supposed to do with the next phase. Where do you go? And how do you find your way there?
Writing is a powerful tool to assist in understanding our inner lives and hearing the pull of the path ahead. If you’ve been a pilgrim on the Camino de Santiago, writing can deepen and reveal much about this powerful experience and provide a way to discern your second Camino in “real” life.
Come gather with other past pilgrims
This fall, let’s gather in Oregon at a beautiful, contemplative location for writing, hiking, story telling, and laughter. The setting is similar to a parochial albergue—the gentle welcome, intentional space, inclusive and communal experience.
We’ll have time for writing on your own and daily writing prompts. We’ll have time and space to walk, connect, laugh, and create evening sharing time. You’ll leave with deeper understanding about your path and meaningful connections (and probably pages and pages of writing!).
Dates: Thursday, October 27 through Sunday, October 30, 2016
Price: $240 This includes all three meals and a private room with shared bath—$80 per night.
What inspired this retreat
When I returned from Spain in 2013, I used writing as a practice to help me understand how the journey touched me and work through the Camino blues. In turn, the discoveries I unearthed in this process changed my life.
In online communities, I’ve earned a reputation for asking really good Camino-related questions that can help you make new discoveries of your own. I’m eager to share and write with you.
