Includes Tips for Overnight Lodging in Monasteries, Abbeys and Spiritual Centers (in Places of Peace and Rest). The Spiritual Traveler: England, Scotland, Wales is a unique guide book. It takes us on a journey across the rural and urban landscapes of Britain, and helps us to discover and explore a multitude of sacred sites: ancient stone circles and tombs, Christian and pre-Christian shrines, medieval synagogues, small country churches and soaring cathedrals, Eastern temples, abbey ruins, sacred cities, holy wells and rivers, ancient yew trees and monastery gardens. The Spiritual Traveler reveals the stories behind these extraordinary places of spiritual power, and offers thirteen pilgrim routes by car, bike or foot, including: - the path of the Celts from Iona to Lindisfarne; - the ancient Saints' Way in North Wales; - a multi-faith pilgrimage to Muslim mosques, Jewish synagogues, Quaker meeting houses, Hindu temples and Buddhist shrines; - the Pilgrims' Way from London to Canterbury; - the powerful route of women mystics from Ely to Walsingham; - in search of King Arthur from Glastonbury to Tintagel; - the Road of Stones from Stonehenge to Avebury.
