I have the feeling that I was walking through tall grass. When I worked on my survival kit, I was taken above the grass and started to have a macro view of my life.

Thank you very much for the experience you gave me. By all accounts, it was astounding. It was amazing externally and internally. In the end, the focus question I asked on the first day turned out to be understood. Understood and answered, partially, because the answer comes with action.

Individual mentoring, group mentoring and peers mentoring, with spaces for reflection and integration.

Walking Mentorship is an innovative and very successful concept. I loved each of the programs I did with Joao Perre Viana. They are very beautiful walks with interesting people. João alternates between individual mentoring, group mentoring and peers mentoring, with spaces for reflection and integration. This dynamic takes place during the walk itself, making this experience absolutely magical. I´ll keep walking with you, Joao.

Move forward and develop our personal and professional lives

Joaos passion to transmit to us the need to always move forward and develop our personal and professional lives has been very enjoyable and rich to me. I certainly recommend everyone to have the first talk with João and discover his WALKING MENTORSHIP program.

The best way to slow down, not to burn out.

Great paradigm shift experience! For me Joao's program was the best way to slow down, not to burn out, recognize and accept my nature, experience digital detox, synchronize my mind and my heart. It was a perfect approach to look at my life and myself from another perspective! I wish you all dare to show up and join Walking Mentorship!

Walking Mentorship is an innovative way to help you reflect on your personal and professional past and future

Walking Mentorship is an innovative way to help you reflect on your personal and professional past and future, combining the centuries-old experience of Santiago de Compostella with modern mentorship insights and local gastronomic and cultural delights.
João is both, a skilled professional mentor, and a passionate Camino walker.

Day 1

Santiago de Compostela

Twin room

Hotel Rosa Rosae is a modern and comfortable establishment located in the center of Santiago de Compostela. Rosa Rosae is 900 meters from Santiago Cathedral and 5 minutes’ walk from the historic center. But the best is that it stands just besides the train station where we catch the early morning train.

Day 2

Oseira

Individual Room

The monastic guesthouse is a space open to all people of goodwill who seek rest for their soul and body. The Cistercian monks share the liturgical Office with the guests and open the monastery's doors as a place for welcoming the mystery of God and neighbour in a climate of recollection.

Day 3

Oseira

Individual Room

The monastic guesthouse is a space open to all people of goodwill who seek rest for their soul and body. The Cistercian monks share the liturgical Office with the guests and open the monastery's doors as a place for welcoming the mystery of God and neighbour in a climate of recollection.

Day 4

Estacion Lalin

Twin Room

The Taberna do Vento is a hidden secret in Via de la Plata. It starts with the owners and ends with the superb food they serve. Staying here is a journey back to authenticity that will help our progress on the Survival Kit.

Day 5

Bendoiro

Twin Room

The Pazo de Bendoiro is a rural tourism establishment, surrounded by impressive vegetation and located in a quiet area that invites you to relax and rest. Establishment built in stone and wood maintaining its old and careful furniture. A place to get lost and enjoy the tranquillity in the heart of green Galicia.

Day 6

Bandeira

Twin Room

Casa de Cacheiro is a country house where simplicity and quality come together in an explosion of beauty that remains in the memory and for a long time in the heart of those who discover it.

Day 7

Boqueixón

Private Albergue

The Reina Lupa Hostel is presented as a quality family hostel, which adapts to the circumstances of each group. It is located already very close to Santiago de Compostela, a restful break before the end of the road.

Day 8

Santiago de Compostela

Twin Room

Built by the University of Santiago in 1666, Inferniño has lain in the shadow of the Cathedral of Santiago since then and been home to students, priests and professors over centuries. Today, wisely renovated to maintain its timeless feel but contemporarily decorated and equipped with all the mod-cons.
