El Camino Areté
Coaching and Mindfulness in El Camino
Every year more than 300,000 pilgrims from all over the world walk different paths to reach Santiago de Compostela. The reasons that drive these people to begin this adventure are very varied, but all of them are eager to prove themselves capable of making an extraordinary effort to reach the goal. And, as the people who have already done it know, the goal is not at the end: “The same Way is the true goal…”. For this reason, many of them repeat over and over again this same path in search of a constant personal improvement.
The program that we offer intends to take this personal improvement and overcoming also to the professional level: Following some sections of the old path of enlightenment, during two weeks we will also travel a path that will serve us for discovery and personal improvement.
Walking through beautiful forests of oaks, firs, eucalyptus, chestnuts, walnuts, figs and some palms. We will relax our minds seeing cows’ farms, flocks of sheep, horses, almost tiny villages, isolated houses, small villages, impossible scrolls, big rivers,… We will cross old stone bridges, visit chapels that have been open on the road for hundreds of years, and rest in inns attended by people who will welcome us with warm kindness.
Along perfectly signposted paths, we will sometimes walk in solitude, with hours and kilometres ahead for personal reflection. On other occasions, we will join other pilgrims who are surely eager to share with us, without prejudice of any kind, their concerns, experiences and experiences.
With the help of experts in personal and professional development methodologies, all this will help us to focus and clarify our deepest concerns and will help us in the transformation and improvement we seek with this experience.

The people who have trusted us so far
The Way gave me an opportunity to stop and think about my day to day. Helping me refocus on what really mattered.
Many times we do not consider that it is necessary to stop and listen to ourselves outside the business environment. We should stop and allow ourselves to separate from our functions so that we can better assess reality. The Camino and the coaches helped me enormously.
I didn’t know the Camino de Santiago and I was a little skeptical about coaching. But this opportunity was something that I would recommend to all people who are in the process of change and need to refocus.
I came with an open mind to discover Spain and go through a introspection process into myself. The program fulfilled all my expectations. Wish I could come one day do the complete Way.
