Welcome to The Slow Travel Book Club
Join us for our first read in 2023
The Art of Pilgrimage is designed for those who intend to embark on any journey with a deep purpose but are unsure of how to prepare for it or endure it. As the title suggests, this book emphasizes the art of pilgrimage, which to my mind signals the skill of personally creating your own journey, and the daily practice of slowing down and lingering, savoring, and absorbing each of its stages.
PHIL COUSINEAU is an award-winning writer and filmmaker, story consultant and editor, travel leader and inspirational speaker on myth in the modern world. His fascination with the art, literature, and history of culture has taken him from Michigan to Marrakesh, Iceland to the Amazon, in a worldwide search for what the ancients called the “soul of the world.” With more than 40 books and 30 scriptwriting credits to his name, the “omnipresent influence of myth in modern life” is a thread that runs through all of his work. His books include Stoking the Creative Fires, Once and Future Myths, The Art of Pilgrimage, The Hero’s Journey, Wordcatcher, The Painted Word, The Oldest Story in the World, The Book of Roads, The Accidental Aphorist and The Lost Notebooks of Sisyphus.
We meet in discussion groups in several languages on the slowtravelsweden.org community plattform and live on slowtravel.se’s virtual event platform from January to May 2023. Read as quickly or as slowly as you want. Discuss the book in your own language, provided there are enough participants. This is our first book. We are very excited to start up the book club and hope that you are as well.
