Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Join award-winning author Phil Cousineau for a sacred journey around the globe.

First published in 1998 and updated with a new preface by the author, The Art of Pilgrimage is a sacred travel guide in book form that is full of inspiration for the spiritual traveler.

Award-winning writer and filmmaker and host of the acclaimed Global Spirits series seen on PBS and Link TV, Phil Cousineau weaves stories, myths, parables, and quotes from famous travelers with practical suggestions and accounts of modern-day pilgrims to show that there is something sacred waiting to be discovered in virtually every journey. Connecting these voices is a series of meditations that suggest different ways to practice what pilgrims and poets have done for centuries, to see with the "eyes of the heart." With over 70 illustrations, this book is for the traveler who longs for something more than diversion and escape.

The Art of Pilgrimage shows that every journey can be sacred, soulful, and transformative if it is undertaken with a desire for spiritual risk and renewal. Whether traveling to Mecca or Memphis, Stonehenge or Cooperstown, one's journey becomes meaningful when the traveler's heart and imagination are open to experiencing the sacred.

About the Author

Phil Cousineau is an award-winning writer and filmmaker, host of the Global Spirits series and travel tour leader. An early fascination with the art, literature, and history of culture has taken him from Michigan to Marrakesh, Iceland to the Amazon, in a worldwide search for what the ancients called the "soul of the world." With more than 25 books and 15 scriptwriting credits to his name, the "omnipresent influence of myth in modern life" is a thread that runs through all of his work. His books include Stoking the Creative Fires and Once and Future Myths. A protégé of the late Joseph Cambell, Cousineau is also the editor of The Hero's Journey.
