Known as the Camino, the Santiago de Compostela Camino is a famous pilgrimage that has been undertaken by people for centuries across northern Spain. It is said that this 500-mile path lies directly under the Milky Way and that it reflects the energy of the star systems above it. Facing her sixth decade of life on earth, writer and actor Shirley MacLaine decided to go on this trek. She wasn't sure why, she only knew that the Camino had been traveled for thousands of years by "saints, sinners, generals, misfits, kings and queens. It is done by the intent to find one's deepest spiritual meaning and resolutions regarding conflicts in Self."
Typical of MacLaine, this is a personal story with enormous adventure, a smattering of flashbacks, and a hefty serving of cosmic revelations. Like a true pilgrim, MacLaine travels solo, willing to strip herself down to the backpacking essentials and find deeper meaning in all the bizarre, frightening, and coincidental events she encounters along the way. It is no small feat that this sixtysomething woman walked the grueling path in 30 days. Readers can expect vivid stories of stalking paparazzi, icy showers, bouts of hunger, lost paths, a worshipping young man, a deranged woman screaming in a roadside shelter, saintly truck drivers, a fellow pilgrim in a wheelchair, bouts of constipation and diarrhea, and a cosmic crescendo that will knock the socks of MacLaine's fans. --Gail Hudson
The author and actress chronicles her journey along the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Spain--the famous pilgrimage route that has been taken by pilgrims ranging from St. Francis of Assisi to Chaucer.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

A couple years ago at the age of 40, completely caught up in Christian traditionalism, I started hearing a voice telling me that hell did not exist and encouraging me to search and question my beliefs. I started having dreams about past lives (one life during a period of intense racism, where I took a black child and raised him)--another life as a passionate artist in Italy. I didn't understand what was happening to me, and there were times when I honestly thought I was going crazy. One night, I found Shirley's book "Out on a Limb" under my bed. I didn't have any idea how it got there--I live alone, and I never purchased it. But I started reading and realized I was going through so many of the things that she described in this book. When she described her "Out of body" experience, I felt such a relief. This happened to me several years ago, every single night for an entire summer. I didn't understand what was happening at the time. I would go to sleep, and the next thing I knew I would be out of my body watching myself sleep. My church taught us that out of body experiences were sinful, and I never told anyone. At the time it happened, it was confusing to me, and although I felt that I could have gone anywhere or done anything--I didn't. I simply sat there every night and watched myself sleep. I wish I'd had Shirley's books at that time in my life.
The Camino is her best book of all. Thank you, Shirley. You have been one of my "teachers" and have helped me on an incredible spiritual journey of my own!
