24 from death on the Camino…. Australian Pilgrim Trevor Cowan Clark stood at St Jean Pied De Port and thought ‘What have I got myself into?’
That was the beginning of a love affair with the Camino that has resulted in him walking it on four separate occasions….
Even after he was informed he would have only lasted another 24 hours alive if he hadn’t found a Doctor on his first time on the Camino Frances.
Trevor first walked in 2013, 2014, 2016 and again in 2018.
After years of clinical depression he saw the movie ‘The Way’ one night and remembered the nuns talking about it in primary school.
A week later he heard about it on the radio and then saw a book in a secondhand shop about the Camino.
He thought someone was telling him something and 4 months later found himself in France and so it began….
Trevor worked in IT for 40 years along with the surf industry back in the 60’s.
He is 69 years young and growing younger each year.
An important message from Brendan.
So many Pilgrims contact me feeling ‘out of place’ or ‘challenged’ (or just plain sad & depressed) after returning home from their Camino.
I was once that Pilgrim- I felt a strange feeling of disorientation after my Camino, I just felt like… I didn’t know which direction to take, because life doesn’t have any yellow arrows to guide us does it???
I felt that weird sense of feeling down, of wanting to be back on the Camino, of feeling guilty because I didn’t look at or feel about my life the same way anymore but not really knowing how to deal with it.
My friends and family couldn’t help and simply didn’t ‘get it’ (how could they, they aren’t Pilgrims)
So I started talking to other Pilgrims about their experiences and slowly but surely I pieced together the basis of what you will learn in my FREE 5 Day online workshop ‘Connecting with your Camino Self.’
My workshop takes you through the steps to re-connect with the person you were on the Camino, now you are back in your everyday life.
If you want to:
Learn how to slow down and live more in the ‘Now’
(without feeling like you are being lazy or unproductive)
Harness the strength you had on the Camino
(in a way that might surprise you)
Get some simple yet effective steps to achieve more while living in what I call your ‘Camino Flow’
(where you get much more done yet it seems to take a lot less effort)
