Through literary travel stories and meditations, award-winning writer, filmmaker and host of the acclaimed Global Spirits series, Phil Cousineau, sets out to show readers that travel is worthy of mindfulness and spiritual examination. Learn to approach travel with a desire for spiritual risk and renewal, practicing intentionality and being present. Inside find:

Spiritual travel for the soul. If you're looking for reasons to travel, this is it.

The Art of Pilgrimage shows that there is something sacred waiting to be discovered around us.
