Anyone, from student to senior citizen, can choose to go on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage and see his or her life as a sacred journey. Within the busyness and loneliness 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 camino guides are a practical and mystical manual – that we might find a place to eat and sleep at the end of a long days walking 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.
