November 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm PDT
Phil Cousineau (author of The Art of Pilgrimage) explores why travelers plan trips and then, upon arriving, have a sense of unfulfilled expectation.
Join Phil Cousineau for a conversation about his newly updated bestselling classic The Art of Pilgrimage.
Whether travelling to Mecca or Memphis, Stonehenge or Cooperstown, one’s journey becomes meaningful when the traveller’s heart and imagination are open to experiencing the sacred. Austin American Statesman writes, “If Joseph Campbell, the Dalai Lama, and Bill Moyers were to have collaborated on a book about journeys, I suspect it would look very much like The Art of Pilgrimage.”
