Life was falling apart. Within the space of three years, New York Times best-selling Author and six-sensory spiritual teacher Sonia Choquette had suffered the unexpected death of two close family members, seen her marriage implode, and been let down by trusted colleagues. And sympathy was not forthcoming. "You're a world renowned intuitive guide and teacher", people jeered. "How could you have not seen this coming?" Having intuitive abilities did not make Sonia superhuman, however. Nor did it exempt her from being wounded or suffering the pain of a loss and the consequences of our all-too-human traits such as anger, resentment, and pride - traits that can lead even the best of us to stray from our path.
In order to regain her spiritual footing, Sonia turned to the age old practice of pilgrimage and set out to walk the legendary Camino de Santiago, an 800km trek over the Pyrenees and across Northern Spain. Day after day she pushed through hunger, exhaustion, and pain to reach her destination. Eventually mortification of the flesh gave way to spiritual renewal, and she rediscovered the gifts of humility and forgiveness that she needed to repair her world.
In this riveting book, Sonia shares the intimate details of her grueling experience, as well as the unexpected moments of grace, humour, beauty, and companionship that supported her through the darkest hours. While her journey is unique, the lessons she learned - about honouring your relationships with others as well as your own higher self, and forgiving all else - are universal.
