Camino Pilgrimage: Beyond the Physical Preparations

 

Information abounds to help the pilgrim prepare for the physical aspects of their journey - what to wear, how to get there, what to carry - but little to no attention is paid to the mental, emotional and spiritual elements that make the Camino, or any other sacred walk, a pilgrimage rather than a hike.

Veteran pilgrim and award-winning author Mony Dojeiji shares insights and tips from her pilgrimages on the 800-km Camino in Spain, and walking 5,000 kilometres from Rome to Jerusalem.
