What started out as a personal challenge for the author turned out to be a gut wrenching, self exploration where the author walked 500 miles to find herself.
Along the trails of the famed Camino de Santiago of Spain, Jennifer shed her false self, layer by layer, and at the end of her walk, embraced the authentic beautiful woman she longed for.
'An Awakening Walk-500 miles to Self-Love and Acceptance on the Camino De Santiago' is the narrative of the pilgrimage that shook Jennifer to her core, and out of her old shell. Stripped of the layers of self-recrimination and self judgement, she was broken wide open. Over the 500 mile trail, Jennifer learned to embrace those sides of herself that were banished out of shame, fear, and social conditioning.
This book is a brutally honest tale of one woman's dogged tenacity to break through the barrier of her own self-exile of conforming and bending to the will of others, and finally her triumphant deliverance into unconditional self-love.
