Landscapes and Soulscapes: A Camino Divina Adventure into the Divine will help you explore in greater depth a richer, deeper relationship with the land, the self, and the Divine. You will be provided with thoughtful and joyful practices that can help you connect more deeply wherever you find yourself, whether at home or abroad. Through the practice of “camino divina- walking the divine way,” inner and outer landscapes will be explored through intuitive exercises, journaling, conversational partnering, finger labyrinths, and walking meditation, accompanied by the words of poets and sages to walk alongside you.
