PHILOSOPHY

MISSION

The Camino de Sonoma exists to provide, protect, and promote exceptional space for pilgrims, seekers, and all people who long for a transformative experience, through the power of walking with intention.

This route has been established to engage the story of this place and its people with honor and honesty. Because of this, we are invited to walk purposefully while we enjoy the wonder of each step furthering an encounter with the exceptional beauty of this land.

We are thrilled to see a very diverse group of people walking the Camino de Sonoma. Our guided walks invite all people to experience the value of walking for miles beside those that are different from us. All are welcome.

Our programming is designed for rigorous walkers and hikers, and we are actively working towards experiences that create more access for more abilities.

TESTIMONIALS

... The second primary reason why I walk is how my involvement has come to include and impact others outside of the Camino community.

 

The Camino provides a more solid forum for me in how I pray for

people in my life in need of prayers. I dedicate every Camino to a family member or friend that is in need of prayers and take that person in my heart with me while walking...

about

COMING INTO BEING

Something profoundly relational happens when we bring the whole of who we are into the world around us at the human speed of 3 miles per hour. Our perspective shifts, and we come to experience ourselves in the environment differently, journeying not only through the natural space, but also the society entrusted to steward it. 

Walking paths possess archeology established by all those who have walked before us. From animal paths to the first nations people who stewarded this land, to rails and roads, to modern highways, the way we move across land and culture shapes the way we build and understand collective memory

We are a diverse and growing community of self-described pilgrims, hikers, and sojourners. We walk to nurture connection, to honor others, to clarify purpose, and to deepen faith. We also walk to find healing, bridge divides, and recognize the sacred work of stewarding the land.
