Sacred grounds and even simple landscapes can put us in direct touch with the spirit. From the prehistoric megaliths of Carnac in Brittany to the Shrine of Imam Reza in Mashhad, Iran, to the giant medicine wheel at Bighorn, Wyoming, 100 Journeys for the Spirit reveals the mysticism enveloped in these tranquil settings. Accompanying the superb photographs are descriptions of each place, including 25 personal responses from esteemed writers and poets. Plus, a gazetteer provides key facts for those wishing to visit the locations themselves.
