Brian Heron is an author, blogger, pastor, overly-ambitious cyclist, and spiritual pilgrim. He lives between the two worlds of traditional religion and emerging forms of spirituality. His search for the Sacred has taken him into the worlds of traditional theology, Joseph Campbell’s mythology and religious mysticism. His spiritual practice includes regular yoga, cycling pilgrimages, and the enjoyment of art, friends, food and conversation. He has worked with hundreds of people in transition as a hospice counselor, probation officer, foster care director and pastor.
He has completed two pilgrimages–a recent one from the Vatican in Rome to Rumi’s Tomb in Turkey and an earlier eight-state cycling journey through the West which is the subject of his book Alone: A 4,000 Mile Search for Belonging.
