El Camino de Santiago Dublin 2015

John and Maria Jesus will guide the group in the last 100 km of this historic pilgrimage.

After walking the Camino in 2010-  2011 - 2012- 2013 John and Maria Jesus are offering to take a group on the last part of this historical pilgrimage. The Pilgrim’s way of St. James actually starts in a little church in James Street in Dublin where you can buy your Camino passport for €20 in the parish office. Then it’s a short walk over to the Guinness brewery for your second stamp and you’re all set for Spain.

Walking on pilgrimage is a great way to nourish the soul and bring healing and resolution to one’s inner nature. Whether it’s for yourself or others our prayers and intentions are processed and offered up on this walk in the way thousands of Peregrinos have been doing for centuries.

This is an ideal opportunity to come on a walking retreat with heart-minded travelers and to have the walk supported by John and Maria.

Camino

Before Santiago's time, the ancient Celts had their own version of the camino, following the via lactea (Milky Way) towards the sea at Finis Terrae (Finisterre), the end of the known world and as far west as they could travel without getting their feet wet.

When walking El Camino de Santiago at night you can see directly upon you our galaxy the Milky Way, in other words, you are walking from East to West in the same direction that the Milky Way. And again, while walking in the daylight, the pilgrims also follow another star, the Sun, in its way from East to West. It is therefore difficult to say whether El Camino took the name from the galaxy or viceversa.
