Who is the "assistant"?
He is a psychologist (with a humanistic background) with a long experience of traveling on foot. The assistant will make available to the group and to the individual, their knowledge as a traveler, the excellent knowledge of Sicilian culture and above all their skills in the psychological field, with the aim of stimulating them to experience this wonderful journey that pervades with greater awareness. the body and the psyche with a regenerative power. He will therefore give a whole series of practical information necessary to face the journey and daily, at the end of the stage, he will facilitate a discussion group by addressing and proposing the issues that emerge from time to time on the journey.
What are the objectives?
- Facing the fear of our freedom.
- Amplify the ability to know things.

- Increase the capacity for action in reality (perceived self-efficacy).
- Improve your ability to adapt.

Do I have to be a trained sportsman?
Not at all! It is necessary to have a desire to walk but, above all, a willingness to meet the other, to welcome differences and accept the small discomforts of an experience lived with the whole body and which is aimed at the new and the unexpected.
How much does it cost?
The registration fee is 400€. It includes the assistance and guidance of the psychologist in organizing the trip and on the paths of the Magna Via Francigena. Furthermore, each of the participants will directly assume the cost of the flight or travel to and from Sicily, as well as the personal expenses for food and accommodation. For this purpose, a common fund of €300 each will be established on site. Depending on the needs of the moment, the amount may vary but in any case the unused difference will be returned.
The actual journey will last 10 days. To these days it will be necessary to add the days for the move from Palermo and Agrigento which will take place independently.
