I was hooked by this book as soon as I began reading the Introduction: “Every journey is both inward and outward, an opportunity to discover new meaning or encounter the world with fresh eyes.” Valerie Brown knows whereof she speaks. Not only has she traveled widely and deeply, but her own life as an Afro-Caribbean American, Quaker, and Buddhist woman represents the convergence of many roads and many pilgrimages. She writes graced and graceful prose, so her book is a joy to read. At the end of each chapter you’ll find prompts for reflection and meditation as well as suggested practices that can help you internalize the book’s content more deeply. If you want a “travel guide” that does more, much more, than tell you where tourists should stay and what they should see, this is the book for you. Travel with it and you will travel well, inwardly and outwardly, with open eyes and an open heart.
