The Spirit is generous and often bestows bountiful gifts upon travelers. But to spot these blessings takes attentiveness and an open heart.

James O'Reilly, president and co-publisher of Travelers' Tales, and Sean O'Reilly, editor-at-large, have gathered selections from previous books in this series. They organize them under sections on:

  • Ignition
  • Healing
  • Mystery
  • Consciousness
  • Encounter

Under Healing, for instance, join Phil Cousineau as he explores Angkor Wat in Cambodia where he undergoes an unexpected revival of his faith. Under Mystery, try to comprehend the fears and the hopes of Dennis Covington as he handles snakes and feels out-of-control.

These two spiritual journeys provide only a glimpse of the magic and the mystery that awaits you on the pages of superb collection.
