About this title


The author of Soul and Sensuality guides readers on sacred pilgrimages to eight spiritually significant destinations: the Ganges in India, St. Catherine’s on Mt. Sinai, Big Sur in California, and more.

From the Back Cover:

Sacred Journeys in a Modern World is a true story of the spiritual quest of a modern-day pilgrim. At the dawn of a new millennium, religion no longer holds a monopoly on what is considered sacred: we are all on a journey of discovery in which we are finding meaning for ourselves. Throughout his adult life, Roger Housden has regularly dropped his ordinary routine and gone walkabout in remote and urban regions of the globe. What makes a journey sacred for Roger Housden is not whether it follows some ancient pilgrim's path or leads to some holy shrine but whether it stirs our own authentic heart. It is sacred if it sensitizes the individual to the deeper realities of his own being and to the world about him. In Sacred Journeys in a Modern World, Roger Housden weaves together the inner life of the soul with the outer world of city streets, deserts, wild animals, and rivers. In the process, he redefines our image of a contemporary pilgrim. He takes us with him on journeys through the Sahara, the streets of Manhattan, and the savanna of East Africa, to Big Sur, to the tomb of the mystic Rumi in Turkey, and to the Monastery of St. Catherine's in the Sinai, where he turns up on the back of a Coca-Cola truck.
