Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage

Every year, Pilgrims bike and walk the Camino trails in Spain/France that have been used for over a thousand years. In 2013 Dr. Mark Cooper and his daughter, Laura, started on the Camino de Santiago; 177 miles later they entered the Cathedral of St. James in Santiago de Campostella. Dr. Cooper is returning to travel over another section of the Walk – this time by bicycle. Each day will start and end with a time of meditation and the participants are encouraged to think of the trip as a time for a life review. There will be free time for side tours so you can make the trip your own adventure. Dr. Cooper will discuss his recent book, Mapping Your Adventure: Discovering Integrity in a Life Review. More information about the book can be found at

Prior to leaving for Spain the group who decide to make this trip will become acquainted, will receive an orientation to biking and minor bike repair, and will take training rides in preparation for the trip.
