Description

It has been nearly five decades since Shirley MacLaine commenced her brave and public commitment to chronicling her personal quest for spiritual understanding. Now Shirley is back -- with her most breathtakingly powerful and unique book yet.

The Camino is the story of a riveting odyssey that began with a pair of anonymous handwritten letters imploring Shirley to make a difficult pilgrimage along the Santiago de Compostela Camino in Spain. Throughout history, countless pilgrims have taken up the trail. It is an ancient -- and allegedly enchanted -- pilgrimage. People from St. Francis of Assisi to Dante and Chaucer have taken the journey -- a nearly 500-mile trek across highways, mountains, cities and fields.

For Shirley, the Camino was both an intense spiritual and physical challenge. For a woman in her sixth decade completing such a grueling trip on foot in thirty days at twenty miles per day was remarkable. But even more astounding was her spiritual route: back thousands of years, through past lives to the very origin of the universe.

With rich insight, humility, and grace, The Camino promises listeners the journey of a thousand lifetimes.

  • (4/5)
    Loved it. I enjoyed Shirley's honesty about her journey. She always speaks from the heart. She didn't give a romantic version of the Camino and was happy to share the struggles. She came across as a woman who is at peace with who she is and doesn't give a toss about what other people think. A true heroine.

    This was one of the factors that set me on the path to do the Camino last year (2010). I really enjoyed her tale, although at times felt a little lost/overwhelmed by her experience.

    I love this book, I hope some day do this too.
