Many films are contemplative works of art, they meet us where we are and offer a mirror image of our inner selves.

The film, “The Way” is such a work of art. It follows four pilgrims as they travel the El Camino de Santiago de Compostela. It features actor Martin Sheen and is directed by his son Emilio Estevez. The film is powerful, inspirational, capturing the outer journey while illuminating the inner one.

Join teacher and spiritual director, Jim Curtan as he guides us along the route of the pilgrimage, pausing along the way, as pilgrims do, at various stages of the journey to reflect on the insight, inspiration and intuitive guidance we receive.
Jim has combined his 20 years experience in the entertainment industry with more than a decade as a retreat leader, archetypal counselor and spiritual director to develop a unique and entertaining approach to using film as a gateway to rich spiritual experience.

“The geographical pilgrimage is the symbolic acting out an inner journey. The inner journey is the interpolation of the meanings and signs of the outer pilgrimage. One can have one without the other. It is best to have both.”
-Thomas Merton, “Mystics and Zen Masters”
