THE CAMINO - A Rite of Passage in Spain

April 18, 2017 - 11 days

Organised by Nomadic Culture and Stoke Travel Barcelona

The Camino De Santiago is possibly the world’s most famous walk. It is not only an immersion in Spanish history and culture, but has also been a ‘rite of passage’ for centuries.

The Camino is a ‘one-off’ experience! 

It is the teacher, it is said!

Are you ready to make a break from the ordinary world. To take a journey on The Camino? To deepen into the ancient spirit of the place? To take an adventure on one of the world’s oldest walks? It is a chance to reflect on where you have come from and where you are going and return to the world refreshed.

We are bringing together community of like minded people from around the world. To connect together and share our stories, informally, along ‘The Way’. It is R&R for the ‘Agents of Change’. An intermingling of ‘Thought leaders’. A leg on the journey towards ‘wholeness’. We not only take the journey on The Camino, but we also provide short stimulating presentations and background on the archetypal and mythological journey to look at your own story in a new way.

We adventure by day and we also believe in fun and will sample the local food and wine from this region of Spain. We want to make The Camino a far more memorable experience than if you walked alone.

ON THIS EVENT YOU WILL:

  • Learn about the history and culture of The Camino and be immersed into the ancient spirit of the place.
  • Enjoy short informal presentations about the archetypal/mythic background of a journey and how it can inform your own story.
  • Connect with and share your story with a group of culturally creative people from around the world.
  • Travel safely with a small group of people and make lifelong friendships along the way.
