Breakout Sessions (Choose One)

  • The Images We Take, The Things We Leave Behind, Megan Muthupandiyan
    • Pilgrimage is chock full of stories, but some of the most powerful ones are least accessible, tightly wrapped up the images emblazoned into our memories of the things we've seen and the artifacts we leave behind. In this creative workshop, pilgrims will be offered a guided space to tell these less accessible but no less important stories.
  • Life Bending Experience, Kurt Koontz
    • Kurt will discuss his first Camino in 2012, his 2013 book, his second Camino in 2015, and how all of these experiences changed his life.
  • Live from the Camino, Dave Whitson and Francesca Murphy (virtual)
    • If all goes well (and we can't take anything for granted, these days!), Dave will Zoom in "live" from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, with on-the-ground reports from four weeks on the French pilgrim route originating in Le Puy-en-Velay. He'll also share insights on the state of some of the Northern Caminos (Norte, Primitivo, Inglés, and Mar).
  • Can Pilgrimage Be a Hero's Journey Alexander John Shaia (virtual)
    • We will explore the necessary ingredients and the four paths in every journey of transformation, including the Camino. Of particular import is the fourth path, how we come home from the journey.
  • The Spirit of the Camino, Victor Prince (virtual)

 Breakout Sessions (Choose One)

  • The Wisconsin Camino, Stacey Wittig
  • Title TBD, Annie O'Neil
  • A Way to Forgiveness: Finding Healing Along the Camino, Erin Dooley
    • To heal from her divorce, Erin walked the Camino, discussing forgiveness with fellow pilgrims. In her presentation, she will share what she learned about forgiveness and show clips of her documentary.
  • Grants Videos, Michael Gardner & John Kennedy
  • Update from Spain, Spanish Tourism Office
  • Chicago Camino Project (virtual)
