They say once you hear the call, your walk has begun. Last Sept./Oct. Cindy walked The Camino de Santiago. The Way of St. James. A Spiritual journey that pilgrims of all faiths and backgrounds have traversed for over a thousand years. She walked the more traditional route, the Camino Frances, which crosses the Pyrenees Mountains along the Spanish-French border. Starting in St. Jean de Port, France. Ending at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Believed to be the resting place of St. James. 800 kilometers (500 miles)
She was looking for adventure and to find and share heartpeace. Due to injury, Cindy never made it to Santiago. But during the difficult five weeks, she did find adventure, and experienced miracles. Real Miracles; found peace and the meaning and purpose to her life. That is what she'd like to share with us alongside the pictures of that journey.

Rumi: Poet of the Heart presents Coleman Barks, the preeminent contemporary translator of Rumi's poetry, Robert Bly, Deepak Chopra, Michael Meade, Huston Smith and others as they celebrate the earthy, joyous spiritual passion of Rumi's poetry. The film includes performances, readings, illustrations, music and footage of the whirling dervishes woven together to serve as an introduction to Rumi and the story of his growing reputation in the West.
