Meet Barefoot Sue
Natural Biohacker Coach
Getting reconnected with our natural way.
Sue has been barefoot for over 12 years and teaches barefooting, cold habituation, rewilding, and Wim Hof Method workshops around the world. Most recently she taught 2 groups of Wim Hof Method Instructors in Holland. She wrote the book How to Wear Bare Feet and has designed a pair of soleless shoes called Barebottoms. Many years ago she was downsized from her corporate job and walked 800 kms alone in the winter, on the medieval pilgrimage route in Spain known as the Camino. She coached and guided groups, and as a result walked many different routes often barefoot. She has written 2 books about her personal experiences journeying on the Camino de Santiago, and her book My Camino is in development as a feature film. Sue is cold habituated and can be found walking, shopping, or in restaurants barefoot, swimming in the cold water, or plunging into an ice hole cut in the frozen lake near her home in Muskoka, Canada.
Connecting with Nature Through Stones
On her first pigrimage on the Camino Frances in 2001 Sue learned a story about putting her sorrow into a stone and placing it down on the Camino. When she arrived in Santiago she realized that she had let go of what had been holding her back from connecting to her authentic self. Sue continued the practice and shared the story with thousands of people back home through her books, workshops, and speaking. Prior to leaving to walk every other Camino, Sue would put a call out on social media to offer to put people’s intention in stones she picked up for them and she set them down along the way. It was her gift to people who couldn’t walk the Camino or those who requested she lay a “Sorrow Stone’ for them. Watch a video about the stones.

Looking to Experience the Camino For Yourself
My Top 5 Tips For Your First Camino
Walk the Camino and shift your perspective.
Write down your intention for walking the Camino and make sure you read it everyday before you leave and while you are walking. It’s okay if it changes.
Practice the virtue of being a simple pilgrim in life. If things get complicated, then simplify them or let go of control.
Make walking a way of life. Walk every single day before, during, and after your Camino.
Wear comfortable shoes (not boots) or go barefoot. Hiking sandals are fantastic. Wear merino wool socks, or go barefoot in them.
Pack lightly and keep an open mind. If carrying a backpack is too much for you, then use the backpack service on the Camino.
My Camino is the story of the spiritual journey of a woman confronting her deepest fear. Suddenly downsized from her corporate telecom career, Canadian Sue Kenney walked 780 kilometers on a medieval pilgrimage route in Spain known as the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. She went alone in the winter with the intention of finding her life purpose.
Confessions of a Pilgrim is Sue’s second book that takes us on the journey walking the Portuguese Route of the Camino in both directions. Prior to leaving, she is entrusted with a sacred Eagle Feather that is given to her by a Native friend as a result of a vivid dream. Her pilgrimage turns into a mystical quest when she is confronted with the challenge of finding a worthy recipient for this great honour before returning back home.
