How has the experience of travel changed? What are our motivations? How do we nurture spirituality as we seek to overcome the discomforts of mass transit? What have the modern means of motion done to how we relate to those we travel with and amongst? How are we to travel?
We can travel more than we have ever had the ability to before. Indeed, travel is now part of everyday life for most of us, whether to or for work, or on holiday. Pink Dandelion looks at how we can enhance the spiritual dimension of our lives as we constantly head off to somewhere else.
The potential to learn, both in head and heart ways, from our mobility has never been greater. Making Our Connections offers directions we may take to reclaim and rediscover an attitude to travel that builds community, and through that enhances our sense of Spirit at work in our lives and in the world.
'Ben' Pink Dandelion works as Professor of Quaker Studies in the Centre for Postgraduate Quaker Studies, Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre and the University of Birmingham. He has travelled widely.
"Making Our Connections is a profound book. Whether you are a tourist or a pilgrim, you are on a voyage or on a quest this book will help to find meaning in your journey. The book covers comprehensively history philosophy, spirituality and psychology of travel on foot, on bicycle, by plane, by car or by train. One way or the other we are all travellers and therefore we all need to read this book." -- Satish Kumar
"After being on the road and in the air for over 40 years as a teacher, I learned that if I did not have a real spirituality in place, many trips were grueling and debilitating. I only wish I had read Making Our Connections many years ago. We must train our head and our heart ahead of time! There is practiced wisdom and hard won guidance here," -- Richard Rohr OFM
