Camino de Santiago, Spain

A Transformational Journey for Women

September 14-24, 2020

Join Pam Cordano and Cynthia Havstad on a transformational journey for women that includes a ten-day pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago in Galicia, Spain and four months of on-line preparation support. This is a journey for heart, mind, body and soul.

If you are facing a transition or challenge such as cancer/illness, bereavement, survivorship, divorce, empty nest, feeling stuck, or simply wanting “more,” a journey like this will help you access inner resources in the context of a supportive community of women.

The transformational traveler intentionally chooses to go toward the unfamiliar, with an open heart and an open question.

2018 and 2019 Participants share their experiences:

“This was hands down the best experience I’ve ever had with a group of people. The Camino was a long-time bucket list item, and it exceeded every expectation. This trip saved my life.” 

“With the entire trip, you two made everyone feel at ease and free to do what they needed to do to take care of themselves. Truly, I’ve never experienced such wonderful leadership.”

“This trip is something I will forever cherish. I don’t think I have ever experienced something of this magnitude.”

"This trip was nothing like I’d expected, and nothing like I’ve ever done before, and I loved it. It was beautiful but also challenging, and I’d do it again in a flash."

“I am so much more 'myself' again since this trip.”

“Together, with compassion for all, let us tie our shoes and walk in the direction of truth.”

Jack Kornfield

What is Transformational Travel?

The Transformation Travel Council defines it as any travel experience that empowers people to make meaningful, lasting changes in their life. There are often three critical parts of truly life-altering adventure:

    1. Traveling with intention, openness, and mindfulness
    2. Engaging in challenging physical and/or cultural experiences
    3. Taking time for personal reflection and meaning-making

Price includes 10 nights lodging, 10 breakfasts, 8 dinners, daily luggage transport (so that we can walk lightly), nightly group reflection to navigate challenges and celebrate joys and transformation. Price does not include airfare, lunches, 2 dinners in Santiago or airport transportation. We can help you arrange these in groups.

Starting 4 months before the Camino, we will offer units of detailed preparation for your physical, emotional and “pilgrim” self.

“Centuries of travel lore suggest that when we no longer know where to turn, our real journey has just begun. As that crossroads moment arrives, a voice calls to our pilgrim soul. The time has come to set out for the sacred ground that will stir our heart and restore our sense of wonder. It is down the path to the deeply real where time stops and we are seized by the mysteries. This is the journey we cannot not take.”
