About Sojourns of the Soul

In a growingly skeptical and uncertain society, the search for meaning has become more urgent and critical than ever. While many of us may desire to achieve enlightenment, most of us don’t know where to start. Celebrated journalist Dana Micucci’s new memoir, Sojourns of the Soul: One Woman’s Journey around the World and into Her Truth(Quest Books), explores this dilemma while chronicling seven trips that span 14 years of Micucci’s life as she explores the connection of inner growth to world travel that eventually leads to her own self-actualization.
Sojourns of the Soul takes the reader on a journey through the world’s most sacred and exotic lands, including the Australian Outback, Cambodia, Egypt, Tibet, the Yucatan, New Mexico and Peru. As she explores each “souljourn,” Micucci finds herself in seven successive stages that correlate with each of the seven chakras, or spiritual energy centers of the body. These stages take the reader from an awakening all the way to activation.
