On February 29, 2016 OWL Global Citizen Zilong Wang embarked on a “pilgrimage, bicycling solo, from San Francisco Bay Area, heading eastward around the world, back to China … in service of the ecological and spiritual awakening of our time.” He expects the journey to take two – three years, “open to emergence.” Zilong is documenting his journey online, and offering ways for us to stay in touch with him as he travels.
My name is Zilong. I was born in Inner Mongolia (a northern province in China), went to schools in Shanghai, and grew up across China. After spending a year in Germany as an exchange student, I came to the US for college. I graduated from Hampshire College in summer 2013, and then bicycled solo across the US to start working in San Francisco.
