It really is a magical journey to be a courageous mortal who returns to the source whilst watching the stars of the Milky Way twinkling overhead every night.
The question still remains: Why will you walk The Camino de Compostela? Is it because Santiago houses the are the bones of St James, St Junia or Mohammad? Or for something at transcends all religion? Pilgrims don’t care. The site is ancient and sacred. It is full of power. Walking the path is transformative. It changes you. It doesn’t matter which saint or god/dess you walk it for. If you walk this crocked and winding path Magick Happens!
YOUR PERSONAL INVITATION
COME WITH US! If you would like to JOIN US there is a trip to The Camino happening for NH Summer Solstice 2020 which some of our readers will be taking. It is a 790 km walk starting from Lourdes, on the 1st June where we will meet the icon of the Black Madonna whilst it is making it own pilgrimage .
Because there is filming, we will take 50 days to walk the trail which is only about 16km per day. If you can afford to take a month and a half for yourself, It will be a transformative once in a lifetime experience The Camino is free to walk but you will still have to pay your own airfares, accommodation and food – which is very reasonably priced.
