Review

The day before I was about to take a trip, "The Way of the Traveler" arrived in the mail. Serendipitous, you might say. No indeed, the author Joseph Dispenza would reply. He has trained himself through the study of Jungian psychology and other spiritual disciplines to see every event, however trivial, as a means to gain understanding and insight into one's spiritual life and purpose.

Instead of tossing the book on top of my stack of "to do" materials, I sat down in the morning sunshine and started reading. I am so glad I did! Whether you take many business trips every week, travel once a year to some faraway clime, or never leave your comfortable armchair, "The Way of the Traveler" can be useful.

This book offers us the possibility to live more credibly, whether we're traveling or not. But certainly when we do hit the road, we are issuing a desire for some sort of transformation, and it's worth considering what that change is or can be.

Format: Paperback
A "travel guide for the soul," this book is about living consciously during the moments in life when we have the greatest opportunity to redefine our world and ourselves - when we are traveling. I've already given a copy as a gift.
We all know "getting away from it all" is a great time to relax and think - or *not* to think. The Way of the Traveler shows inspiring ways to open your mind and spirit to either think or just "be."
One of the epiphanies in this book for me was how I defined a "journey." After reading The Way, I have reframed even my gridlocked commute during rush hour into a more relaxing experience. It has reframed my "schlep through the front door" into more of a "homecoming."
Dispenza's "Way" is light reading with a deep message (and its compact size fits into my carry-on luggage!).

I loved this books so much I read it 2x. "Way" really hit home and has opened up the idea of spiritual traveling for me. I knew my journeys were revealing something to me, as many a time, my life changed drastically after the get-away and I had a new look on life.
This book put a structure around what I was experiencing. It brought conciousness to those emotions, feelings, and fears.
I like the many excercises and building of a shrine it suggests exploring. I will use this book as a reference book-a guide to my many more life experiences.
Thank you for taking self-discovery to a new level!

My first book by Joseph Dispenza, but not my last! I loved the information in this book. I could not put in down when I first bought it. I leave it by my bedside and read a passage every morning upon awakening. It's my jump start for the day. I totally encourage everyone to buy and read this book. I am so grateful I bought it and did not leave it on my bookshelf to read "later". Thank you Mr. Joseph Dispenza for such insight into how to handle our lives on this planet......

Dispenza's book is a work of art. He takes an experience that has become common place, commercialized, functional and often sterile, and returns it to us in sacred context. Even though this book is about travel it is so much more. It is filled with joy, excitement and love. In his book Joseph miraculously turns travel into a soul journey, an odyssey. He makes one feel like an adventurer. He reminds us that the world is still full of new and wondrous experiences - and he's right; it is. In his book he shows us how to recognize and claim these experiences.
This book is full of delightful ideas that will make your travel easier and far more rewarding. Joseph has shown us a way to easily turn travel into an unforgettable journey. It will positively change the way you approach travel, whether you're an anthropologist headed to the Amazon Basin or businessperson headed to Cincinnati, Ohio. Whether we travel or not - we are all on a journey. A real gem and a "must read" for everyone.

Some books have uncanny timing and appear in one's life at exactly the right moment. For me, The Way of the Traveler is such a book. I have no travel plans; I am not preparing for a trip to Macchu Pichu or any other lovely and remote destination. Instead, my journeys are inward, to places I have never been. For example, who knows how to travel the road with a dying friend? And then comes The Way of Traveler with its comforting advice and wonderful ideas for letting go of fear, and making each journey one of awareness. I could struggle, or I could make these encounters healing and strengthening. After reading The Way of the Traveler, I like to think I have chosen the latter. This is a beautiful little book: to look at, to hold, and above all, to take heart from. I sincerely recommend it.

Well, first I need to say that Joseph Dispenza is on my "top 10" list of writers. When I first got this book I thought it was going to be just another how to.....but again I , was pleasantly surprised by his creative genius. What I most loved about this book is that I could turn to any page randomly and receive a marvelous message. The true message of this book, in my opinion, it gives us the wisdom of the ages. A book everyone should read. They should make it mandatory to read in high school. This is a book to help one become a winner. Again I applaud Mr. Dispenza for writing valuable information for the masses.

Though "The Way of the Traveller" is geared to rituals to center one's mind on the beauty and illumination available in every aspect of the journey, from planning to packing to flying/driving/training (as in choo-choo)to returning home and unpacking, it's really speaking to the Life Journey as well...for, from desk to kitchen to the hardware store, life is a journey that deserves constant awareness. This is a small book, light enough to take on any trip, and I heartily recommend it to calm shattered nerves while waiting for flight delays and such annoyances.

This extraordinary book is a guide for the thoughtful traveler, but I found it a guide for life, as well. I have read it through now three times, and I still am finding remarkable insights in the writing. The arc of the book is the structure of 'the hero's journey,' a beautifully conceived way of looking at not only traveling out into the world, but also within, as the author continually reminds us. This is highly-charged spiritual material, exquisitely written and lyrically set out. I recommend it for travelers who are truly interested in enriching their spiritual lives as they travel either 'out there' or 'in here' -- or both.
The book is stunning.
