Transformative Travel E Course with Phil Cousineau
Since he was a boy riding in the family Ford station wagon from Detroit to points all over America with his parents and brother and sister, Phil Cousineau has been fascinated with travel. He has taken cross-country motorcycle trips, driven the length of Route 66, sailed on the Mediterranean, taken trains from the Arctic to Cape Horn, dragged movie cameras down the Amazon River on a film shoot, and led groups around Ireland, France, and Greece on mythic journeys.
Along the way Cousineau read accounts of the greatest travelers in history, and asked travel advice from thousands of fellow pilgrims. He shares what he has learned in this e-course on "Transformative Travel."
Cousineau, who is profiled on S&P as a Living Spiritual Teacher, is the author of the worldwide bestseller The Art of Pilgrimage: The Seeker's Guide to Making Travel Sacred. He was the host of Global Spirit, an "internal travel series" on PBS and LinkTV. Truly a renaissance man, he brings a wide variety of experiences to this subject.
"I have come to the happy conclusion that there is no such thing as a boring destination and no excuse for meaningless travel," Cousineau says of his philosophy. "All we need to do is open our hearts and minds, follow a few road-worthy practices, try a few tricks of perspective, and be curious and respectful wherever we go. Then we can discover what the ancients called 'the soul of the world.' If we are lucky enough to experience that, we might feel our spirits soar, and sense the kind of transformation that history’s great travelers, from Ibn Battua to Freya Stark, Mark Twain to Pico Iyer, have all written about — the ability to come home again and see our own backyards as sacred ground."
This e-course is designed to provide you with a satchel-full of practices, rituals, ceremonies, and tricks of attention and intention, that will encourage you to craft your next journey in a way that will evoke the most meaning, joy, and significance. You will receive 12 emails with:
- Essays from Phil on ways to find meaning on the road
- Journaling prompts to help you discover your own approach to travel
- Suggested reading, movies, and music on the themes of the emails
- Exercises with travel photographs for contemplation
- Access to a one-hour conversation on Zoom with Phil on June 1 (time tbd).
Sign up to widen your notions about what travel can offer — whether you are planning a trip abroad, visiting a park or a new city, venturing to a different part of your own community, or attending a reunion or graduation. After all, if life is a journey and the world is an inn, as a wise man once said, then it is up to you to decide if you will embark as a tourist, traveler, or pilgrim, which will in turn determine if you will be a stranger or the unmet friend to those you encounter on the long and winding road. It’s time to unfold your own journey.
