St Kilda Library: Neon Pilgrim

  • St Kilda Library 150 Carlisle Street Saint Kilda, VIC, 3182 Australia (map)

Join Lisa Dempster as she discusses Neon Pilgrim, her deeply inspiring story of walking back to health on Japan’s Shikoku Island pilgrimage: the Japanese equivalent of Spain’s Camino de Santiago. Lisa was severely depressed, socially withdrawn, overweight, on the dole and living with her mum when she decided to do the 1200km Henro Michi pilgrimage, taking her on a journey that tested her limits and took her deep into Japanese culture.
