A Spiritual Journey Sharing Forgiveness and Possibilities to Inspire the Rest of Your Life
Send us a Text Message. This interview changed my life. I am still in awe of my encounter with Kathleen Donnelly Israel, a caregiver, spiritual seeker, healer, and pilgrim on the Camino Santiago. Her caregiving journey led her to her deep study, knowledge of spiritual healing practices, and her quest to walk the Camino, sharing her story and holding space for others to share theirs. My time speaking with her was enlightening, encouraging, and healing and I know it will be for you too!If you are uncertain of who you are outside of caregiving or wondering what life beyond caregiving could be (and perhaps feel guilty about thinking of that), I invite you to listen to this interview with Kathleen.And then buy her book Wisdom on the Camino; I am reading it now, and it is like walking with her!
