Guest Info/Bio:

This week we bring back a dear friend and one of our favorite guests of all time, Dr. Alexander Shaia. One of the things we wanted to do for the listeners, but even more so our friends, was to try our best to paint a picture of the journey that our friend Simon was getting ready to embark on. And so, we called in the expert and the guy who literally wrote the book on it. In fact, Simon had that very book with him when he left for Spain. We hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did and that you at least get a sense of the power and meaning behind the Camino.

Dr. Shaia is an international speaker, author, and teacher. He studied cultural anthropology at Notre Dame University, and also has a PhD in Clinical Psychology. Alexander is the author of the revolutionary book, “Heart and Mind: The Four-Gospel Journey for Radical Transformation.”

This episode is dedicated in loving memory to Simon Forsythe.
