Travel can be a sacred act. Many people on the planet are waking up to the idea that true “pilgrimage” is a tangible possibility. Traveling mindfully is an intentional process, an active rather than passive way of traveling.
Intentional, sacred travel, even, is a process by which we can connect to the deeper meaning of life.
In his The Art of Pilgrimage, Phil Cousineau writes, “The art of pilgrimage is the craft of taking time seriously, elegantly. What every traveler confronts sooner or later is that the way we spend each day of our travel . . . is the way we spend our lives.”
Phil isn’t only a well-read, adventurous author—he’s also one of our veteran tour leaders who’s been crafting expansive journeys with us for many years.
It’s because of leaders like Phil that we’re reminded of the importance of how to best travel. . . and how to best spend our lives.
