Trip: Camino de Santiago - Spain

I appreciated the morning prayers at the start of our walks which helped make space for the divine. My highlight moment is being part of this amazing group, feeling the presence of the divine everywhere, so many breathtaking moments; there is not one moment or memory but a flood of them.

One special memory for me on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage was the day we walked 9 miles. Before the trip I was concerned about my stamina and ability to keep up with the group and to complete this trek. That day I made good use of the affirmation we had been given and enlisted the help of [my source of Spirit] to keep me going. But the most fun of the day was when a fellow pilgrim started walking with me and suggested that we sing [sacred music] together while walking. How could I have enough breath and energy to sing while walking uphill? To my surprise, I discovered that I had more than enough of both. We found ourselves swinging our poles, walking with high steps, and chanting sacred music with great energy and joy. Our tasks everyday were simple and clear: eat, sleep, meditate, and walk (not in that order). That simplicity, regularity, and rhythm allowed us to go within and quiet our minds and hearts. At the end of the day, I felt myself exhale and relax into the arms of Divine Mother. This was the experience of a life time.

The space of the present moment allowed for a connection with myself that was joyful and felt intimate. It gave me time to slowly notice what was going on in my body, mind and spirit. Now that I am back in my regular life routine, I find myself walking slowly, moving more mindfully, listening more intently and open-heartedly. Just that the Spanish rural countryside and the historic lodgings are amazing and beautiful. I love the connection with the ancient and with nature. Muxia and Finisterre [at the End of the World] were magical. I wouldn’t want to skip these last 4 days.

Sitabai is an amazing leader and spiritual beacon. Thank you for giving so much of yourself during this amazing pilgrimage. You touched our lives profoundly.

The purification ceremony [before entering into Santiago] worked a small miracle for me as I let go of something that I had let bother me but should not have allowed it to have that power over me. I loved that. You also did a wonderful job planning and guiding in all aspects.

Along the Camino are many churches, including stone churches in the Romanesque style dating back hundreds of years. Several of these churches especially impressed me with the power of the divine feminine. I came away from this pilgrimage with a much stronger sense of my own relationship to Divine Mother. The accommodations for the 2019 Camino Pilgrimage exceeded my expectations. We stayed in a number of charming old-world casas and pazos (Galician manor houses), which allowed us to enjoy the Spanish rural countryside and partake in the local culture and cuisine. The final days of the 2019 Camino Pilgrimage included an extended and varied experience of Galicia at the “end of the world” at both Muxia and Finisterre. All of these helped to broaden our understanding of this special and unique part of Spain, as well as give us time to integrate our experiences as walking pilgrims before returning home to our busy lives. I appreciated all of the support with regard to elevating our consciousness (prayer, meditation, silence, sacred sharing). The quality of the food was excellent. Thank you so much, Sitabai, for a memorable and life-changing adventure. The experience was heart-opening and invigorating. I feel that I am still sustained by the lingering Camino energy.

One of my highlight moments was walking Muxia’s hill [to the cross]. No one was there, only the sound of the sea, the church bell and a slight wind. I took those moments to imprint forever the magical days walking on the Camino on my heart and in my mind. I will never forget that moment or the Camino pilgrimage. The world softened for me on the Camino. I felt a sense of deepened peace that has stayed with me. “Buen Camino” is heard as a song in my heart! Thank you for a life changing pilgrimage! Ultreia!

I gained so much from this – the magnetism of the group forged deep friendships in a short time. This [experience] was real expansion for me – Self as well as self-knowledge. I loved the trip. You have given us a gift of a lifetime.

Walking the Camino in silence was one of the moments that carried me from a personal goal to a Spiritual Journey. The awareness of God’s gifts can be realized by “walking” in the Camino Spirit. The Memory is more than a thought, it is a Choice to be aware of the Purification and Blessings experienced. I feel Life with God’s Perfect Presence is the Camino de Santiago. The commitment to the Journey and Sitabai’s Love of the Camino was inspiring and palpable. Her physical Energy on the Camino was transformed by her Spiritual Self.

After coming back to my “normal” life back in the States, I had become more aware of the value of simplified life on the Camino. How my regular scheduled, busy, always on the go daily life with iPhone and iPad pulling attention away from my center, I’ve realized, had affected my inner peace. On Camino we just walked, communing with the nature, friends and fellow pilgrims. All the necessities were provided. Once you’ve experienced this kind of simply “being”, always “doing” with a few breaks here and there, you realize, won’t quite fulfill soul’s yearning for deep stillness. I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to nurture my soul this way.
