about

Intrinsic Paths is a creative journey that inspires a way of being more than it is any specific project or program. 

 

Through meditative practice, unhurried movement, artmaking, and relational collaboration, Intrinsic Paths aims to resemble a twisting and fragrant juniper tree. Each branch bends and reaches into the tender and courageous work of deep personal and systemic healing, facing personal and systemic injustice, and re-wiring personal and collective connection with the natural world.

 

Intrinsic Paths centers programming and artistic exploration through Walking Invitation, Engaged Contemplation, Pedestrian Dignity, and Movement Building.

Jonathon Stalls, Walking Artist 

I spent 242 days walking across the United States in 2010 and have continued to move alongside thousands of people for thousands of miles. My artwork currently moves in the realms of pen and ink drawing, writing and poetry, storytelling with the Pedestrian Dignity campaign, economic and racial justice organizing, meditative practices, and creating/scouting long-distance walking routes.

 

I am LGBTQIA2S+/gay, Founded Walk2Connect in 2012, and attended the Living School for Action and Contemplation from 2015-2017.
