Practical and Mystical Manuals for the Modern Day Pilgrim

Within the busyness of our secular lives we can awaken to the spiritual and find the meaning and relevance that is often absent in our chaotic world. And that is why these guides are subtitles A Practical and Mystical Manual for the Modern-day Pilgrim - that we might find a place to eat and sleep at the end of a long days hike but also, and crucially, that we might support each other to dive into the mysteries of our individual soul awakenings without which all journeying is, ultimately, purposeless.

There are many long distance footpaths but only the Camino Santiago has achieved World Heritage status on account of its historical and spiritual significance. Countless millions have walked this path over millennia in search of a new direction and a deeper meaning to their lives. Below are guidebooks to the 3 most popular routes - all of which are regularly updated.
