I have always wanted to take a walking holiday - my dream trip is a coastal English walk, however, ever since I read Paulo Coehlo's "The Pilgrimage" about a year ago I have been rather intrigued with The Camino de Santiago de Compostela, also known as The Way of St. James.
So a few weeks ago I saw a promo for "The Way" by Emilio Estevez, starring Martin Sheen, and realizing it was about "The Camino", I added it to my mental watch list.
Then other night as I was flipping through Netflix, what pops up in my movies you will like section - you got it "The Way". I took it as a sign and started the movie rolling.
So needless to say I really enjoyed the movie. The characters were nicely balanced - annoying yet lovable and one of my favorite French Actors has a small role which warmed my heart.
The Chopra Center is starting the Free to Love Meditation Challenge on July 16th. I have completed two of these challenges and I find them a nice shift from my regular meditation practice, which is very unstructured.
The way it works is for 21-days you will receive notification to listen/download the daily meditation (I usually save each daily mediation to my Ipod). If you miss a day it is easy to catch up as you will have approx 5 days to access the meditation.
This is great for beginners or the curious as it provides a nice structured platform and for the seasoned practitioner as a way to bring new depth to your daily practice.
Give it a try, it is free and you might be surprised by the results.
