Camino de Santiago farewell party and sound healing

Follow along as Harrison hikers prepare for pilgrimage in Spain

First, let me introduce the pilgrims. Frank, age 56, full of life and energy to spare. I would call him the catalyst. He had been dreaming about hiking the ‘Camino de Santiago de Compostela’ for a very long time, but a large renovation project of his house, which he basically undertook by himself, made him postpone it. With it being completed he rekindled his dream and can hardly wait to get going.

Elizabeth his wife, a fully certified yoga teacher, as well as Cheryl, who recently retired from a job as a Special Case Health Nurse, will join him. Since both Liz and Cheryl are trained in Sound Healing, they will take their tuning forks along, not only to heal sore muscles but also sagging spirits experienced by themselves or by fellow pilgrims along the way.

The team will be rounded up by Eric, Elizabeth’s and Frank’s son, and by friends Angie and Brenda.

Starting on July 23, Elizabeth and Cheryl will start their blog ‘Sound the Way’ and for those of us who have access to the computer world it will be easy to follow them on a daily basis. For those who do not, I will compile the blogs as well as other news about the team and pass it on to the Agassiz-Harrison Observer so we will always know where they are and how they are doing. It will be exciting!

To find out more about Sound Healing, I read a fascinating book ‘Human Tuning and sound Healing with Tuning Forks’ by John Beaulieu. Dr. John Beaulieu ND, PhD, is a composer and Naturopathic Doctor. He has been teaching at several universities and is a sought after lecturer around the world. His book, though sometimes scientific and not the easiest to read, is very interesting especially to those who learned or studied music. However it will help all readers to get a better understanding of the subject.

Once on the trail, Liz and Cheryl, who both have attended workshops at Dr. Beaulieu’s studio in New York, will let us know how useful their knowledge in this field is, to themselves as well as to their fellow pilgrims.

The book is available at the Crystal Spirit Yoga Studio in Harrison Hot Springs, or Cheryl Redfern, Crystal Healing.

Last Wednesday, we had a glimpse into the future! There was a knock at our door at 10 a.m. and Phil, my son-in-law, went to see who it was. He was confronted by two totally drenched hikers who just came back from a training hike during which they were caught in rain coming down in sheets! Why did they go hiking when one could easily see what was coming? Were they gluttons for punishment? No, it turned out they were two of the Harrison Pilgrims, soon to tackle the Camino de Santiago, on a training run with conditions only too true because as we all know, ‘it rains in Spain’. Like true pilgrims however they followed the call of the ancient French Pilgrim song:

 

Tous les matins nous prenons le chemin,

Tous les matins nous allons plus loins,

Jour apres jour la route nous apelle

C’est la voix de Compostelle.

 

English translation:

Everyday we take the trail,

Everyday we walk further,

Day after day the way is calling

It is the voice of Compostela.
