"Into The Thin" A Pilgimage along the Camino
Time & Location
About The Event
The Camino de Santiago, or Way of Saint James, is a thousand-year-old sacred pilgrimage that traverses northern Spain, extending 500 miles from Saint Jean Pied de Port in the French Pyrenees Mountains to the city of Santiago de Compostela near the Atlantic coast. Experience an evening on the Camino through stories and photographs, as the author of the memoir Into the Thin, Stephen Drew of Morris, explores the inner and outer act of pilgrimage.
Stephen Drew lives in a bucolic lakeside community in northwestern Connecticut. He moved there after a period of personal loss and tragedy, searching for peace and simplicity; a place to collect himself.
It was here he took up walking, and in the space of taking a single step, was moved into a mystical experience that would forever change his life. Called to walk the Camino de Santiago, the Way of Saint James, Spain’s thousand-year-old pilgrimage route, he came to a journey of physical, psychological, and spiritual implications. Among the many outcomes of this walk was the reawakening of his writing voice.
Stephen continues the practice of daily walking, mostly on the roads and paths near his home. Hiking there and elsewhere serves as a centerpiece of contemplative living, and an ongoing connection to Source. He currently resides in Morris, Connecticut.
