Volume 2:


honor thy ache

oh, beloved sound

look through me

my orange urine

like cactus

rise, beloved, rise

wild grief

formless love


Intrinsic Paths poetry is meant to invite, open, and deepen our connection to one another, to our deep heart/purpose, and to the planet around us. If you have ideas for sharing Intrinsic Paths poetry, please reach out!


All poetry booklet proceeds go to support time and energy put into all aspects of Intrinsic Paths (walking programs, contemplative/meditative programming, movement building, Pedestrian Dignity). Be sure to browse this website, sign-up for monthly emails, and follow @IntrinsicPaths on social media to learn more. You can also move more intentionally alongside this work by becoming an Intrinsic Paths Patron.


Blessings, self-compassion, healing, and courage to all!
