Sacred Journeys with Bruce Feiler

Lourdes - Shikoku - Jerusalem - Hajj - Kumbh Mela - Osun-Osogbo

Sacred journeys are as old as humanity, yet they're more popular today than ever before. Tens of millions go on a pilgrimage each year. In this landmark series, New York Times best-selling author Bruce Feiler travels with American pilgrims on six historic pilgrimages. They set out from the ordinary and seek the extraordinary.
- In Lourdes, France, bathe in sacred waters with wounded soldiers from around the world in a moving search for healing and reconciliation.
- In southern Japan, trek with Buddhist pilgrims on an 800-mile, 88-temple journey as they seek personal salvation and renewal.
- In Jerusalem, follow the trail of pilgrims from the three Abrahamic traditions as they ground their faith in one of the holiest cities on Earth.
- In Mecca, go behind closed doors of the Hajj in a rare, intimate look at pilgrims making the trip of a lifetime.
- In India, plunge into the Ganges during the largest human gathering on earth, the Kumbh Mela, which takes place every 12 years.
- And in Nigeria, dance at water's edge with African-Americans at a spectacular Yoruba festival where they reclaim their religious roots.

Unprecedented in scope, Sacred Journeys with Bruce Feiler will forever change how you view your own spiritual journey.

Great instructional videos
Review by Prof. D. on 12/15/20 review stating Great instructional videos
I purchased this set of videos to use in a college World Religions class. It is ideal for showing one aspect of several different world religions. It is a great audio visual instructional tool, and it is entertaining at the same time.

Journeys Personal and Religious
Review by Pjw on 12/15/20 review stating Journeys Personal and Religious
After watching one episode on television, I investigated the series and found it to be an enlightening and gratifying experience. It has an appeal to students of religion; but it also delves into the human aspect of these journeys. The people who are the subjects of each segment are more than a blank face in a crowd of religious pilgrims. They have a personality that gives the viewer a deeper understanding of the experience that they are going through and that we are viewing. An excellent choice to add to anyones visual library.

Sacred Journeys/ Lourdes Pilgrimage
Review by Tom on 12/15/20 review stating Sacred Journeys/ Lourdes Pilgrimage
An excellent explanation of the Lourdes pilgrimage and how pilgrimage affects each participant differently. The presentation is sensitive to the needs and feelings of the wounded soldiers, their families and their caregivers as well as discussing their expectations and the different results, including acceptance, following the pilgrimage experience. Well done.

Lourdes segment in particular
Review by Tom on 12/15/20 review stating Lourdes segment in particular
Brilliant work portraying what is happening in Lourdes as witnessed from the chief of the Lourdes medical bureau to the chaplains words to the impressions, or should I say healings, experienced by the wounded soldiers. I have watched it more than once and encouraged others. Arent we all on a pilgrimage, hopefully we are not so much worried about the destination, but the journey.
