My Spanish partner and I are pilgrims who walked the Camino, and then embarked on a kilometre, country, month walk for peace from Rome to Jerusalem. This was not an organized event. We had no sponsors. No political, religious or social affilitations. Just two people contributing to peace by walking, and believing that to create peace in the world, we must begin by creating it within ourselves first.
There were no hotel rooms booked in advance. We simply carried a road map and plotted out our daily route, trying to average around twenty-five kilometers a day, while staying away from busy thoroughfares. We slept wherever we were given shelter — from the floors of church halls to the warm beds of monasteries and convents that took us in, to the homes of people who saw us on the road and invited us to their homes. To us, it was the hand of Love that always delivered us to people and situations that could help us.
It certainly challenged every single belief we held about peace, life and love; but it also demonstrated to us the magnificence of the human heart, and its essential goodness, no matter the country.

The book focuses much more on our inner journeys hence the title , and less on the places and sites that we visited. We speak honestly of our struggles, our conflicts, our fears and frailties I hope you will check us out! Kiwi-family Veteran Member. I would love to know if and how the act of walking contributed to peace outside of your own personal peace. Hello Kiwifamily! I see from your blog that I am speaking to a fellow pilgrim, and not just one!
What an amazing adventure you and your family have all been on. In answer to your question I dream of walking round the world or at least great chunks of it. I just struggle to reconcile the time that would take and which I would totally love - I'm an introvert, despite the life I find myself living! I guess I'm looking for a convincing argument beyond "I like doing it". I have never walked the camino but have walked great lengths of hikes in the US on city streets with complete strangers.
What I have found is that it does make me more peaceful which you indicated and that in turns allows me to be peaceful with all I meet. This allows me to be peaceful and present with all I meet. For example on a multi walk in California I was having breakfast listening to some in the group complain about someone who was walking with them.
I knew enough from their complaints that later that day I happen to be walking with that person.

We walked together for about 3 miles where she talked to me the entire time and I gently listened. When we started together her tone was anxious and unable to focus. When we finished she was starting to quietly relax even laugh. I like to think it was my peaceful presence that helped her in turn be more peaceful. I am so looking forward to my first camino. I try to enjoy each training day as I prepare and recognize that that too provides opportunity for peace in my own community.
Peace to you. My experience has been similar to gnhale's. That when I am at peace, I exude an energy which affects people and situations around me. This was my first time to Sedona and I wanted to not only make it memorable, but spiritual as well. The knowledge Kurt shares and the history of the land was exceptional and meaningful.
Mariposa's spiritual gifts and guidance she shares was empowering for me. I went unsure of what I was seeking and left with more than I hoped for. They are a great combination and have wonderful gifts to share! Perfect balance! I highly recommend embracing this experience. I know I will come back and stay in touch with them.
Thank you Kurt and Mariposa for the healing gifts you shared! We am grateful! We are most grateful to you for sharing your time with us. One of the ways we talk about the vortex is a place, person or situation that brings us back into balance. Sedona can definitely help with that and we feel that balance is something that we can be mindful about as a reachable goal every day - how can we reset ourselves back to balance each day?
We feel that our services are a stepping stone which can help our guests to bring that balance into their lives in a very grounded, simple way. We look forward to our continued correspondence about the unfoldment of your journeys together. Take care!!!! Flights Vacation Rentals Restaurants Things to do. Cart 0.

With deep authenticity, wisdom, intimacy and courage, author Marianne Broug writes of her intense suffering, its transformation, and ultimately her awakening into Spirit or Consciousness as her true Home and the ultimate healer. This book is a compelling and inspiring account of an ordinary woman living in ordinary suburbia, and her extraordinary journey to Truth and Oneness.
Rather than a quick-fix or self-help manual, this book is wise, raw and humble medicine from one who has gone before. Here is rich depth that offers a path beyond the superficiality.
