In April 2013, I walked the Camino de Santiago, the ancient pilgrim’s route called The Way of St. James. For me it was a profound and transformative experience.
I’ve since written a book called The Way, My Way. It seems to have become required reading for anyone wanting to walk the Camino, or for those who’ve walked it already, but want to relive the experience through my often humorous writing. Here is the book:
This blog is called PGS – The Way because I walked the Camino intuitively.
Let me explain:
I believe that we each have within us something like a GPS in a car, which tries to guide us through life. I call it a Personal Guidance System, or PGS. I walked the Camino allowing my PGS to guide me, and I’m now making a film about intuition.
In April 2014 my wife Jennifer and I led a tour along the Portuguese Camino – from Porto to Santiago. We all had an incredible time, and for some on the tour it was life changing.
In May 2015, we took a tour group along the Via di Francesco, the St. Francis Way, from Florence to Assisi. And in October 2015 we led a spiritual tour to India, visiting the major spiritual sites.
We’re doing more of these tours, and if you want information about upcoming tours, then visit the Gone Tours website, gonetours.com or check out the Upcoming Tours page on this blog.
As for me – I’m 62 years old, a filmmaker based in Sydney. I’ve made movies, won awards, been feted and ignored – I love books, I love writing, I love photography, I love walking, and I try to find the humour and humanity in all things.
I’m a member of the Directors Guild of America, an Adjunct Professor at one of Australia’s leading universities, and an Accredited Member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers.
