Event Contact Stephanie Dodaro | Email


You’re invited to our third Seven-Day Virtual Camino, hosted on our Chapter Facebook group and in Google Docs for those who don’t use Facebook. Led by chapter member Stephanie Dodaro.

Starting Sunday, January 17, wherever you are in the world, take a walk (or follow along at home). Do the optional daily walking meditation, posted each morning to this document, comment about your experience, and view others’ replies.

WHY? We began these virtual walks last year as a way to process our emotions, stay connected, and share the Camino spirit. As we move into 2021, we hope that this walk will be grounding, and a space for community and joy.

WHO? Open to all. Whether you're already walking 10 miles a day, are rusty, aren't an experienced long-distance walker, or can't leave your house at the moment -- we'd love for you to join us. No minimum and no maximum number of miles.


PLATFORM: If you’re on Facebook, go to the Virtual Camino III event page and click “Going” to sign up and get the daily announcements. If you’d prefer, you can participate on the Google doc.

WHAT TIME? Walk at whatever time is convenient for you. Each day at 7am PST, we’ll post the same optional walking meditation exercise to both the Facebook group and the Google doc.

WHERE? Walk anywhere... at your home, the office, a park, etc.

HOW FAR? Do what you can. Try to walk a few miles outside, but if you only feel comfortable walking around the block, that’s great. If you're unable to leave your house, try going up and down stairs, do a circuit inside, or just follow along and see what other peregrinos are up to. If you'd like to log your daily miles with others, you can do so on this online spreadsheet.

STAY SAFE: Please stay safe and do your part to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Follow CDC social distancing practices and local guidelines.

SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE: After each day's walk, post about your experience either to the Virtual Camino III Event page or to the Google doc, under the day’s meditation exercise.

Buen Camino!
