Richard Frazer is the author of Travels With a Stick: A Pilgrim’s Journey to Santiago de Compostela.
Almost 300,000 people officially complete the journey to Santiago each year – hundreds of thousands more travel at least part of the way. In his book, Richard Frazer discovers on his pilgrimage to the shrine of St James the Great how a journey – wherever it is made – undertaken with an open and hospitable heart can provide spiritual renewal and transformation, filling what many people see as the spiritual void in 21st-Century life. This absorbing account reveals how the pilgrim journey can be nourishment for the human heart. It connects us to landscape and brings us to the mystery of what it is to be human and vulnerable and open to the kindness of strangers and the gift of the new and the unexpected. In this illustrated talk, Richard will discuss the book and show some of his beautiful photographs.
