Brooke started a journey in the new millennium as a management consultant with a major firm; a learning guru; a columnist; and an author of two highly acclaimed books about e-learning and the Internet. Events of his life transformed him into a certified personal and business coach, a keynote speaker and writer with a spiritual message.
Brooke nourishes his soul while canoeing in the morning mist, cycling in nature, and trekking on rigorous Spanish pilgrimage trails. Here he finds spiritual inspiration for his writing and poetry. He lived a transformational experience while walking on the Camino de Santiago, a 1,000-year-old pilgrimage trail in Northern Spain.
On the Camino Brooke embraced the pilgrim community, mindfulness and nature.
In his new life, he has found inner peace and contentment and a drive to share his story with people who long to make an inner journey, or a pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago.
After his pilgrimage on the Camino Brooke, who had taught History after University, starting delving into the lives of his ancestors. This led to many published articles that are available on www.telling-family-tales.com and a family history, Moonrakers at Peace and War.
Brooke has combined his training as a life coach, his experience as a writer and his passion for family history into a new activity: coaching others with the writing of their family history. More details at www.telling-family-tales.com.
Navigating between fact and fiction and constantly seeking to uncover truth, Moonrakers recounts the story of immigrants from Wiltshire England to Canada and the United States in the 19th and 20th centuries as they encounter the forces governing their lives whether they are political, religious, economic, legal or social.
Brooke shares the profound lessons of the Camino de Santiago as different stories applied to real life examples. This offers readers a glimpse into the ancient Camino approach to a balanced life.
