The author has compiled a chapter by chapter analysis on life lessons learned on some of his more than a dozen walks in northwestern Spain.
In talking to hundreds of pilgrims on the way, the a

Deep Walking: For Body, Mind and Soul is a unique book that I have read. This book intrigued me from the very first page. I enjoyed reading it so much that I couldn't put it down until I finished it. Many people don't know that deep walking and hiking is different. Before reading this book, I was also not much aware about the difference. Deep walking on a pilgrimage is a journey toward the heart of inner consciousness step by step, day by day and week by week. Author has first walked Camino in 2 ...more

I've always loved to walk, in nature and otherwise. I have also practiced meditation daily for 17 years. After I learned to meditate, every walk has been meditative to some degree, especially in nature. I was therefore attracted to read this book as soon as I saw the cover and title. I was not disappointed. This was a pleasant and useful read on several levels. One level was practical information for those who plan a pilgrimage. The author has extensive experience in walking pilgrimages, and he ...more

For many years I have taken an annual hike into the Drakensberg Mountains: Partly to gather my thoughts, partly to get far away from the madding crowds, but most importantly, to revitalise my inner being. When I saw this book I was instantly intrigued. If you’re a hiker you will no doubt identify with it. If you’re a historian or philosopher it will help quench your thirst for knowledge and stimulate thoughts and internal discussion. And if you’re a spiritual being, it will feed your soul. For m

As an avid hobby cyclist, I probably fall into the category of those who would not be walking deeply but whizzing lightly and tuning into the soft whisper of the cycle spokes instead of the feet attuned to mother earth. Nonetheless I found deep appreciation in this book. It is filled with both religious and human wisdom which modern man has forgotten due to the pressures of daily routine and our technological age. The personal experiences both in the authors biography as well as his extensive ex ...more

🔷 BOOK: Deep Walking: For Body, Mind and Soul
🔷 AUTHOR: Reino Gevers

Deep Walking written by Reino Gevers is the kinda book that I was looking from long time. I was too much confused, anxious and unhappy because due to my fears, I have achieved less than what I am capable of. This book has provided me some clarity and has given me the much needed motivation. If someone is looking for a book for spiritual renewal and self development, I would suggest them to start with this book. Personal experienc

What a thoroughly enjoyable read Deep Walking is!

Discover how the author soul searches whilst walking different parts of the Camino and he describes how it can be an inspirational and creative process whilst also giving you time to reflect upon your life and put you in touch with your inner self.

Throughout the book he covers different parts of history, some biblical and some personal experiences during Apartheid. He writes about some of the interesting pilgrims he met along the way, their perso

What a wonderful book, even the feel of the cover is special!
Easy to read, short chapters full of the authors own personal experiences, that of his fellow pilgrims and his own part biographical links to his life. The tips and advice for mindfulness are a bonus, and ring so true for a lot of people who have walked the Camino. Also for those who haven’t, it acts as a self help guide and perhaps the spur one needs to - take that step - and discover Deep Walking for body, mind and soul. As a lover

The author takesthe reader along different parts of the Camino in northwestern Spain, and a long time ago I walked that way with him. It is interspersed with personal childhood experiences and stories from interesting pilgrims he meets along the way dealing with their own life issues. The Camino is more than just a walk and as the title of the book says, a journey on healing body, mind and soul. A way to find a way home to your real roots, far away from the images and illusions, we believe in.

Great and easy read, makes me want to go walk the Camino right now.

I loved the stories of pilgrims the author meets along the way and his own spiritual journey. It’s a inspirational read and I love the Essentials list at the end of each chapter.

The book reminded me of my own journey in life I am walking and how bringing stillness to my busy life and mind is essential.
