Walk in a Relaxed Manner: Life Lessons from the Camino
Number of pages: 256
At age 60 Joyce Rupp didn't know what she was getting into when she began a 47-day pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago in Spain, the road made famous by the movie "The Way". Joined by her walking friend Tom, a retired pastor, Joyce learned lessons that can help all of us travel on life's up-and-down journey with more grace and lightness. She shares them in this enjoyable recounting of her journey across mountains and valleys, cities and farms.
The twenty-five life lessons include:
- Set Out with Hope and Enthusiasm
- Travel Lightly
- Acknowledge the Kindness of Strangers
- Let Yourself Be Humbled by Weakness
- Savor Solitude
- Return a Positive for a Negative
- Look for Unannounced Angels
- Trust in the Divine Companion
This book describes the humour, heartbreak and adventure of Rupp's 450-mile trek along the famous Spanish pilgrimage route Camino de Santiago. Photographs and a map of the route invites readers to travel along the dusty track as the pilgrims did 450 years before.
