Zestful Aging

May 4, 2024

Anyone out there believe in synchronicity? Many of you know that I am walking part of the Camino de Santiago in May. I’ve been thinking, planning and talking about it alot. One night I was scrolling and I fell upon a group called Women of a Certain Age–WOACA. I was intrigued. Then I was surprised– more than 10k members. Comments stating how special this group is. They debated on the best walking shoes and if you really need a pee rag. I looked up a little bit about the FB group’s administrator…wait! A social worker? Yup. Synchronicity.

Alysa Golden is a psychotherapist and coach who lives in Toronto. She is also the creator of Woaca the Camino, a community of almost 12,000 women who are over the age of 50 and either planning on or walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain. Last year Alysa edited the book “Hearing the Camino's Call” containing 58 stories written by women in the group about their experiences walking the Camino. FInd out more about WOACA here:
