THE DARING SPANISH CAMINO 2020                   

2020 dates coming soon - PLEASE PUT THIS AT THE END OF THE RETREATS

Reunite mind, body, and spirit by connecting with like-minded individuals while traveling through this historic and sacred pilgrimage of El Camino de Santiago, Spain.

This pilgrimage is a time to reconnect with your inner needs and develop resilience techniques to bounce forward when faced with challenges. This trip will deepen your understanding about life transitions and help provide direction through an inspiring walk in the beauty of northern Spain’s stunning vistas.

During this Daring Camino adventure, expert facilitators will provide daily inspirational sessions drawn from Brené Brown’s The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong programs, as well as research from other thought leaders in burnout prevention and resilience.  During the retreat we will examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The sessions will be interactive, fun, and insightful. We’ll work hard, be challenged, and leave feeling ready to take on new challenges.

This pilgrimage is at YOUR pace and has the support of our guides and a van so that you will have the ease of traveling only with a small daypack and for those who may need it, the opportunity of a helping lift along the way. You will have ample time to soak in the Spanish landscape as you walk through quiet, charming villages, forests, farmland and beaches. We will stay in beautiful restored farmhouses and small inns and enjoy their exquisite regional cuisine and wine.
