The Art of Pilgrimage: Interview with Phil Cousineau


The Art of Pilgrimage
Interview with Phil Cousineau

Listen with RealAudio: The Art of Pilgrimmage

The Art of Pilgrimage For thousands of years, the need for meaningful travel has been met through pilgrimage. With the millennium quickly approaching it's estimated that, in the year ahead, more people will journey in search of sacred inspiration than in any other time in history. The Vatican is expecting nearly thirteen million celebrants for the year 2000, and another three to four million travelers will make their way to the Holy Land. Phil Cousineau is author of the book, The Art of Pilgrimage: The Seeker's Guide to Making Travel Sacred. When Phil stopped by recently, we asked him to explain the difference between a pilgrimage and a vacation.

Phil Cousineau's book Art of Pilgrimage: The Seeker's Guide to Making Travel Sacred is available from Amazon.com.
