Find your true path with a pilgrimage to Santiago guided by a personal coach
Join us for a transformational pilgrimage to the sepulchre of the apostle St. James
*Online Coaching preparation starts on August 1st
Like thousands of seekers from all corners of the world, you may consider embarking on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in search of clarity, healing, or purpose. However, without proper preparation, your journey may fall short of your expectations.
You might be aware of the need for physical training, but overlooking the importance of spiritual, mental, and emotional readiness can limit your potential for growth and transformation on this life-changing journey.
Without a deeper understanding of yourself and your goals, you may walk the pilgrimage without intention, struggle to hold onto the insights the journey will bring, or fail to integrate the learnings and findings to your daily life once you return home.
As a coach, I will be with you every step of the way to provide the guidance and support you need to make this experience truly transformative.
