Intrinsic Paths is a creative journey that inspires a way of being through artmaking, storytelling, nature connecting, writing, walking, and facing, healing from, & repairing systemic harm.

It is messy, soulful, wild, and colorful.

It is what swirls and aches between us when walking or rolling together.

It is rage, humility, and liberation... whaling, dancing, celebrating, resting, and dreaming.

It is the wisdom in twisting trees and flowing streams.

It is cosmic, mysterious, and full of edges.

Intrinsic Paths centers programming and artistic exploration through Walking InvitationPedestrian DignityEngaged Contemplation, and Movement Building.
