Fabienne Bodan set off for the first time from Le Puy-en-Velay towards the tomb of the apostle Saint Jacques in the year of her 50th birthday, in May 2012. On a simple intuition. She knows that she must live this experience, at this precise moment of her life. For what reasons ? She discovers it after a few days. She will walk to forgive. To those who have offended her. To his soul for the hardships endured. This is what the founder of the Pèlerins de Compostelle website says in her Guide to the world's pilgrimage routes (Éditions Ouest-France, 2018), which BuddhaNews.fr extensively chronicled this spring. The author had also written a superb report on the pilgrimage of 88 shrines on the island of Shikoku, Japan. Or a walk of 1200 kilometers in the footsteps of the founder of Shingon Buddhism.
France Télévisions offers an exceptional dive along the paths that lead to you. You can already discover behind the scenes of the filming of the report of the program Des Racines et des Ailes on this link: http://pelerinsdecompostelle.com/une-bretonne-fil-rouge-dun-documentaire-sur-les-chemins-de-compostelle-pour-des-racines-et-des-ailes-france-3/
Note that the author's second book, Guide to the pilgrimage routes of Europe, in which she crosses 28 countries, will be released at the end of October 2019.
