Discover some of the world’s most awe-inspiring and holy places, from Stonehenge to Uluru, and Walden Pond to Angkor Wat.

Humans have always searched for and created meaning in the world around them, whether in breathtakingly stunning natural features and phenomena, acknowledging the ancient home of a particular faith or movement, or honoring the location of a significant event. In this beautifully illustrated guide, Alice Peck discusses what makes a place spiritual—whether reaches of time, geography, the provision of sustenance or inspiration, or mystery and magic—and then explores 80 such locations around the globe. Rather than a comprehensive travel guide, the description of each one includes a detail or tip—something beautiful, strange, relatively unknown or unfamiliar—to allow readers to deepen their focus and perhaps experience the place in a different way than they might expect. If you are unable to travel at this time, this book will help you plan your next adventure. And if you are trying to limit your carbon footprint, each destination is accompanied by a related meditation, prayer, practice, or quotation to help you connect to the spirit of it from your own home.

Drawn to finding the sacred in everyday things, she is the author of The Green Cure, Be More Tree, Mindful Beads, and The Secret Language of Herbs, all published by CICO Books, as well as the editor of many books about mind and spirit, psychology, and meditation practice.
