Experience the Camino with Kurt Koontz

Unlike the daily routines of life, every single day is filled with uncertainty. The terrain, weather, distance, stamina and acquaintances change on a daily basis. In this “challenged” environment, you will likely be sucked into the now. With so many unknowns, there is little time to waste on the past or the future. Spending 30-45 days in this zone will likely help you to rearrange your emotional backpack. The walk of a lifetime might be calling you ...

Kurt Koontz grew up with a lot of the outdoors in Boise, Idaho. He studied business at the University of Puget Sound, then returned to his hometown to rise through the ranks as a sales executive for Micron Technology. While working, he traveled on business across the U.S. and the world. When he retired at age 36, he took to adventure travel—mostly by bicycle across Europe and in the Western U.S. and Canada.

It wasn’t until 2012 that he began writing about his adventures. That year, he walked the 500-mile El Camino de Santiago, the Spanish pilgrimage route dating from medieval times. This journey, he says, was a very different kind of travel.

On the Camino, he lived moment to moment, not knowing where he would find the next meal or sleep the next night. As he walked the 1,300-year-old route, he heard unforgettable stories from other pilgrims and took a deeper look at his own life stories. Recorded in his journal and e-mails home, they became the foundation for his first book, A Million Steps, due out late this year.

He now lives and writes near family and friends, on a tree-lined creek in Boise.

About Wendy Garrett:

Communicator, intuitive, artist, mystic, and host of "Conscious Living" on Empower Radio.

My world was transformed in 1997 when I awakened to an entirely new awareness of reality through a metaphysical shift. The spirit energy that collaborated with me to reveal new dimensions of being and spirit worlds with which we cohabit and co-create our reality is still with me. And that is what I bring to the table now - in each and every life experience: multidimensional awareness and metaphysical presence.

As a radio broadcaster, my experience runs the spectrum of formats including news, talk, and music. Reporter, jock, news anchor, talk host and co-host, announcer, voice talent, I back-burnered and downplayed my metaphysical life while I learned the trade, acquired new information and new skills, gained entry into the world of interviewing and met some amazing people.

Radio back-burnered when I detoured from news to finally allow my paranormal world to have center stage. Totally immersed through a dramatic series of events that triggered an entire redirect of my life, I wrote about the initial encounter in Talking to Nightlights. Truly, a new beginning, the rewards upgraded as I have continued my lessons and learning on that journey.

Writing shifted to blogging and a renewed interest in interviewing with a dedicated focus on metaphysical and spiritual topics that included spiritual awakening and shamanism, because that is my reality, and there were no radio broadcasters who talked or lived this lifestyle. I hear, see, feel, sense, smell energy beings, ghosts, angels and spirit guides and I learn more with each encounter. As a conscious co-creator, I go where I am called. One can ask better questions when they walk the talk. (To that end, I work with a paranormal group who investigates hauntings.)

We are the creators here. We are the change we seek and we are in the company of others in spirit form who add the element of wonder to the playing field. That is where magic lives. Join me for Conscious Living on Empower Radio. I feature others who may or may not add a metaphysical element but are bringing light, joy, wonder and awareness to the world in whatever creative endeavor they have chosen to pursue.

Open your mind to some extraordinary views.  Blessings and Light wherever your path calls you!

Wendy
