feeling energy from sacred places

World traveler Brad Olsen has compiled a book that documents 108 destination spots for 'feeling the energy,' of our spiritual historical roots. Pilgrimage is one way we can find ourselves and this book will provide a guide. 

Spiritual Seekers Guide:

The book is filled with fascinating archeological, geological, and historical material. These 108 sacred places in the United States, Canada, and Hawaii offer ample opportunity for questing by spiritual seekers. 

Sites that Touch your Heart

As an odd lot, the places that have a way of touching your heart: mountains and homesteads, caves and monasteries, lakes and pathways. Author Brad Olsen has recognized that variety in this bringing together of 108 places that stir the soul. Many of the destinations mentioned come as no surprise in a collection of the hallowed: Ohio's Serpent Mound, Wyoming's Yellowstone, Colorado's Mesa Verde, for instance. But other entries serve as a delightful reminder that there is room in our hearts to expand the definition of sacred: Massachusetts has Walden Pond, Michigan has the House of David, and Tennessee has (and Elvis') Graceland, for instance.

the whole range of sacred places ...

"For travelers who prefer destinations with spirit ... juxtaposing local folklore and Native American legend with scientific theories to provide context." 

A guidebook with spirit

A revealing, useful, and enthusiastically recommended guide for the vacationer seeking to fulfill their spiritual as well as their recreational yearnings.

A continent of 108 sacred sites

The book's chapters correspond to ten regional sections of the U.S. and Canada, which are further subdivided into specific U.S. States and Canadian provinces. No less than 38 of the 50 United States are revealed to contain sacred sites, some of which are very public and easy to access, such as the House of David in Michigan, and some of which are more obscure, like Shiprock -- the stand-alone neck of an ancient volcano core -- in New Mexico. But never fear: Olsen provides lucid and detailed directions, as well as tantalizing and historically well-informed essay-portraits, for each destination. The book is also peppered with excellent maps, illustrations, and photos.
