Phil Cousineau

Mentorship … Passing the Torch

Phil Cousineau is an award-winning writer and filmmaker, teacher and editor, lecturer and travel leader, storyteller and TV host. His fascination with the art, literature, and history of culture has taken him from Michigan to Marrakesh, Iceland to the Amazon, in a worldwide search for what the ancients called the “soul of the world.” With more than 25 books and 15 scriptwriting credits to his name, the “omnipresent influence of myth in modern life” is a thread that runs through all of his work. His books include Stoking the Creative Fires: 9 Ways to Rekindle Passion and Imagination, The Art of Pilgrimage: The Seeker’s Guide to Making Travel Sacred, The Hero’s Journey: Joseph Campbell on His Life and Work, and most recently, Wordcatcher: An Odyssey Into the World of Weird and Wonderful Words.
