Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caitlin | 2/20/2014

    " I am loving this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenne Lorraine | 2/12/2014

    " Well for the more "spiritually attunded" this book is a little goofy and overly simple. But for the average American person Cousineau does a good job of pointing out simple ways to make travel a journey of the soul. I am for most endeavors that can help Jo Schmo see beyond the worlds illussions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 1/30/2014

    " First book read in my new apartment. Makes me want to travel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kolby Kirk | 1/25/2014

    " This book changed the way I see travel. I read it again before every major trip I take. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christina | 1/15/2014

    " Not a bad book but not exactly what I was thinking of. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ned | 12/27/2013

    " full of wisdom about travel. One of my favorite quotes from this book: "The secret to soulful travel is to find beauty in every situation." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 shannon | 12/26/2013

    " I enjoyed this book full of inspirations toward traveling. The book takes the word "pilgrimmage" a little too literally for me - I believe it's possible to have a "sacred" experience in a broader sense, without as much focus on actual religion. Cousinseau mentions that he also believes this, but such an experience is outside the scope of this book. Many of the stories are of pilgrims in history, thus lending the overall story toward heavily religious content. The work is inspiring nonetheless, and contains lots of serendipitous moments to make you smile. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynne | 12/8/2013

    " Good to look at from time to time before taking any journey "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 11/27/2013

    " Phil Cousineau's book is an important guide for preparing for pilgrimage -- whether to your town's museums and memorials or on the 500-mile Camino (which I will be walking in 2011.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sylvia | 11/26/2013

    " Read this while pilgrimage through England/Scotland, then Ukraine. Was a great book that helped usher me into what it means to go on pilgrimage, but also for how to incorporate pilgrimage living into the everyday life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Antieau | 10/19/2013

    " This is one of my favorite books. I try to read it before every trip I take. I recommend it to everyone who is going on a trip. However, even walking in our backyards can be a pilgrimage, so even if you're not planning on traveling far, I recommend reading this lovely book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacki | 10/7/2013

    " Not much to say about this book. It started out well, with lots of dog-eared pages. Then went downhill with me just skimming to get it done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 9/19/2013

    " A meaningful way to look at travel. This book was important to me as I quit my career and pursued a new course of travel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 9/15/2013

    " I have always been a travel reader but never knew qabout Spiritual Pilgrimage until I read a few quotes in an article, by Cousineau. Once I got his book and read it I was hooked. Now my book shelf hold at least 20 more from other authors, some read and others for that perfect time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 8/23/2013

    " I would give it a 10 if that were possible! An excellent read - to be read again and again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert | 8/21/2013

    " Excellent! Very worthwhile reading. It helps us to realize how and why we travel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott | 7/10/2013

    " Really enjoyed it, have read it before every major trip. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary B | 6/6/2013

    " An excellent guidebook for soulful travel. One of my favorites! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 heather | 7/11/2012

    " this book was somewhere between useful and hokey. i'm glad to have the good bits to reference now, though. the integration of quotes and ideas from across disparate cultures and sources was especially nice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Garner | 3/26/2012

    " This was a really nice read, although I expect it would have made a much better book, had I actually been on a trip at the time. I will probably try this again should I emabark on a pilgrimage myself, but ultimately, the overall message can be practised anywhere. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Byrne Hoffmann | 6/3/2011

    " I have been reading this book, on and off, all year. It is one of my "bibles" - a book that I go to for perspective, for clarity, and for hope. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aife | 2/10/2011

    " Wonderful, broad take on the notions of sacred and of travel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carole | 2/18/2010

    " A little too personal growthish for my taste overall, but I found a couple of chapters particularly relevant to my life, especially as related to "my work" in the world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 tomlinton | 4/6/2009

    " I won't say much
    except to tell you
    it got me out of a creative slump
    It's staying on my Kindle
    and will become part of my reference library
    I would have bought more of the books it references
    if they had only been available on the Kindle "
