Nancy Wiegman on walking the medieval pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela , Spain.

March 9, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Nancy Wiegman had never been a backpacker or hiker, and until she went to Spain to walk the medieval pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, she had no idea how the experience could change her life. Nancy shares why she decided to walk it the first time, why she has gone back five more times to walk portions of the Camino (le Chemin) in France as well as Spain, and what she has learned that can be applied to life in Chico and Paradise.
Nancy Wiegman has a master’s degree in French linguistics from Indiana University and taught yoga and foreign languages at CSU Fresno and the College of Charleston before moving to Chico in 1990. She wrote articles on yoga and vegetarian cooking for Yoga Journal and local publications. In 1999 Nancy was named Outstanding Woman of Chico and received a Maggie Award in 2002. She directs the yoga program at Chico Sports Club and has been teaching yoga there since January of 1994. She became a classical announcer at KCHO in 1990 and debuted Nancy’s Bookshelf on Northstate Public Radio in July of 2007.
She and her husband, retired Spanish Professor and author Neal Wiegman, made six trips to walk the pilgrimage route (the Camino) to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain. The first time in May of 2005 and the last in September 2013.
