Be Aware and Engaged!

 

Author Talk – Noel Braun

Noel Braun embarked on a spiritual quest of self-discovery after the suicide of his wife Maris. He decided to walk two of the more popular routes of the Camino de Santiago, the ancient pilgrimage routes through Europe to Santiago in the north-west of Spain.

 

His two most recent books – The Day was Made for Walking and I Guess I’ll Just Keep on Walking – describe his journey. Woven into his spiritual and emotional journey are fascinating stories of the people he meets.

 

Noel undertook these pilgrimages in his late 70s and early 80s. Last year at the age of 84 he embarked on a fifth journey. All of his walks are dedicated to the memory of his wife.

 

Noel is an advocate for suicide awareness and prevention, and will be talking about his journey.

The theme for 2018 Mental Health Month is: Share the Journey.

 

Each year in NSW, Mental Health Month is celebrated throughout the month of October.

 

The aim of this month is to encourage all of us to reflect on our mental health and wellbeing, but also to include the month’s message in our everyday lives. It helps us, whether we have lived experience of mental illness or not, to think about the importance of looking after our mental health and wellbeing.
