Finding One's Self on the Camino de Santiago
Saturday, October 21, 7pm
Whitney Community Center, 10 Black Mountain Rd, Jackson, NH
From May 17th to June 22, 2015, Theresa Fersch hiked the entire length of the Camino de Santiago from St. Jean Pied-de-Port, France to Santiago de Compostella, Spain. The Camino is a 500-mile pilgrimage traveled by pilgrims for over 1,000 years. It is said to bring great physical, mental and spiritual growth to all who travel its routes and provide continuous examples of kindness, generosity, friendship, and love. The Camino gives people the opportunity to experience life as it is meant to be. Theresa wrote a book about her experience while in Spain called Sunrise in Spain and she speaks all over New England providing inspiration and motivation for others to do something amazing for themselves. She provides a brief overview of what a day on the Camino is like and speaks about the significance of living ones's life to the fullest.
