The Ascent to Santiago 2016-03-19

No permission to buy ($8.99)
Pilgrims, wanders, and wayfarers – I would like to introduce you to a new resource for your pilgrimage. It is a book called, THE ASCENT TO SANTIAGO: A Contemplative Journal for Those Walking the Way of St. James and it will help you be as intentional about your inward journey, as you have been in preparing physically to walk to Santiago. This journal will open you to the reality of your own heart, and allow you to be attentive to how the rhythm of walking the Camino is forming your soul. It will aid in creating the mental and emotional space necessary for you to put into words what you are experiencing, feeling, and perceiving. It is like having a companion for the journey who gently asks the kinds of questions which enable you to grow in your understanding of who you are and your place in the world.

You have read and been inspired by the stories of others who have made pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago. It is now time for you to write your own. This journal can be of great assistance in that process.

If you have walked the Camino in the past, this journal may help you retrace your steps internally and remind you of the significant impact of your journey.

The journal keeps pace with John Brierley's guide book, A Pilgrim's Guide to the Camino de Santiago, but it is not meant to be rigid. If you desire to keep tempo with the guidebook, this will follow right along, but if you want to set your own timeline,the journal allows you that flexibility.You can find it on Amazon in both print and kindle versions. Please note, the print version has journal pages, it is the only journal you will need to carry. The kindle version has journal prompts, you will need a separate journal in which to record your thoughts.
