ABOUT MY JOURNEY

Kurt Koontz has always been an adventurer. He learned to love the outdoors growing up in Boise, Idaho. After a successful career in sales, he retired early to seek new meaning in life. He gave back to his community, but also yearned to learn more about the world and himself. In 2012, this spiritual yearning found him on El Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Spain. This long, transformative journey on foot inspired Kurt to write his first book, A Million Steps, a memoir that enabled Kurt to forge friends and connections around the world. One of those friends led Kurt to Rishikesh, India, where he then embarked upon a serious study of yoga as a physical and spiritual practice. In Practice, Kurt recounts his most recent adventures.

Kurt’s presentation was stunning; after it was over, no one wanted to leave.
This is a presentation not to be missed. If you can’t actually do the Camino de Santiago,
at least do the next best thing: hear this presentation!
