A Journey of theBook - 2000
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.
