Are you a female traveler who has walked the Camino de Santiago and found it life-changing?
My name is Claudia Marusanici and I am a graduate student at Alef Trust - MSc in Consciousness, Spirituality and Transpersonal Psychology (accredited by Liverpool John Moores, UK). I am recruiting participants for my study, which aims to examine the experience of transformation for solo female travelers walking the Camino de Santiago.
I am looking for:
• Female travelers that have walked alone any of the Camino routes for at least 2 weeks
• Adults >18 years old
• Have done the Camino in the last five years
• Have carried their backpack for the entire trip
• Describe their journey as life-changing
• Eloquent, capable of self-reflection and willing to share vivid, accurate, and comprehensive portrayals of what their experience of transformation was like
• Fluent in English
• Willing to agree to a 60-90 min in-depth interview over Zoom and follow-up emails
• Willing to have their interview audio recorded.
Although the interview will be semi-structured, I would like for us to go on a venture that holds the potential to transform how each of us knows and understands ourselves and others, and how we make sense of the world around us.
You are also invited to contribute any written materials such as journal entries, letters, poems, or stories documenting your experience.
Peaceable Projects Inc. is a U.S.-based non-profit group that brings the vast resources of the wide world together with the ongoing needs of the people who live, work, and travel on the Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail network in Spain.
@Claudia Marusanici Apologies for the temporary derailment of your thread. You’ll find that happens, regularly, on this forum
Walking the Camino was in fact life changing for me in lots of ways (as it is for many) and, in a very tangible way, as i met my now husband while walking the Camino Le Puy. But I’m undecided yet if I want to participate.
