Life was falling apart. Within the space of three years, Sonia Choquette had suffered the unexpected death of two close family members, seen her marriage implode, and been let down by trusted colleagues. And sympathy was not forthcoming. "You're a world-renowned spiritual teacher and intuitive guide," people jeered. "How could you not have seen this coming?" Having intuitive abilities didn't make her superhuman, however. Nor did it exempt her from being wounded or suffering the pain of loss and the consequences of our all-too-human traits such as anger, resentment, and pride--traits that can lead even the best of us to stray from our spiritual path. In order to regain her spiritual footing, Sonia turned to the age-old practice of pilgrimage and set out to walk the legendary Camino de Santiago, an 820-kilometer trek over the Pyrenees and across northern Spain. Day after day she pushed through hunger, exhaustion, and pain to reach her destination. Eventually, mortification of the flesh gave way to spiritual renewal, and she rediscovered the gifts of humility and forgiveness that she needed to repair her world. In this riveting book, Sonia shares the intimate details of her grueling experience, as well as the unexpected moments of grace, humor, beauty, and companionship that supported her through her darkest hours. While her journey is unique, the lessons she learned--about honoring your relationships with others as well as with your own higher self, and forgiving all else--are universal.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Nothing too profound just gentle reminders of our journey through life.

A mishmash of New Age and Christianity. Fine as a personal journal; but offers little in the way of profound thought. A repetitive story of power bars, rain, and sore feet.

This is spiritual biography that
unfolded along the Camino walk. Interesting background of the Camino but mostly about the author's internal journey.

There have been many books written about walking the Camino, this is not one of the better ones.
