About Jonathon Stalls

Beautiful people! Thank you for visiting.

Patreon: What & Why?

Patreon is a membership platform for creators. Patrons allow for my artistic process to be open, emerging, and expansive. I want my creative work to live less in a realm of transaction (set fees, hourly rates, scarcity) and more in transformation (flow, gift, service, adaptation, abundance). For me, too much transaction crowds and hurts just about everything and everyone I see or touch or love. I want to create a different story for how I love, give, serve, show up, and make art. 

What is Intrinsic Paths?
A creative "walking artist" journey focused on deepening and widening personal and collective relationships to one another, to one's inner life, and to the natural world.

You Might Become a Patron if you...
(A) have been nourished by my creative work and want to see/inspire more
(B) want to go deeper and make a more intentional connection
(C) would benefit from receiving various video reflections, walking/movement meditations, walking/movement practices, poetry, art pieces, 25% off all art and jewelry in Intrinsic Paths shop, and more (see projects below).
(D) want to support events and programming alongside my new book, WALK - Slow Down, Wake Up & Connect at 1-3 Miles per Hour.

Welcome Statement:
Beloveds of all backgrounds regardless of age, ability, race, class, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, country of origin, political affiliation, and religious tradition are so beyond welcome to become a Patron. All references to walking are inclusive of moving by wheelchair or powered stroller.

Your Patronage Supports:
Materials, tools, creative strategy/time, content development, movement building partners, fees, food, bus passes, shelter/rent, and ALL that keeps my body healthy and thriving.

***

No strings attached.
No hard feelings for starting, re-arranging, and stopping as a Patron.
None. Ever.
Freedom, peace, and dignity for all.

Current Projects:

1. Walking Invitation, Pedestrian Dignity & WALK Book Tour
(1) Walking Invitation includes contemplative, long-distance, and human dignity-themed programming, custom walking routes, and artmaking. Pedestrian Dignity is a storytelling initiative using video, photo, audio, and experiential documentation (over 80K followers on TikTok!) of built environments that unapologetically centers all who walk, roll and use transit for transportation, health, and the planet.

WALK - Slow Down, Wake Up & Connect at 1-3 Miles Per Hour
Inclusive Stories & Practices
North Atlantic Books
WALK book is out now and can be found wherever books are sold. Check out upcoming dates and events alongside the WALK book tour here.


2. Bold Love
Revolving content (with humility and imperfection) on issues of class, race, LGBTQIA2S+, religion, politics, cooperative economics, reparations, colonization, money, Earth care, consumerism, and more. Opening our hearts. Waking up. Healing our pain. Going deeper.

If you are me...
And I am you...
What must we do...
Who must we be...


3. Artwork
Most days I am carrying around a large sketchbook in my backpack. I love simple ink pen work and crave to spend more time in the years ahead creating and gifting ink art pieces. I also love to wander and collect unique earth stones, fallen juniper pieces, and seashells for n
ecklaces, altars, and mixed media art pieces. Learn more about my artwork by visiting the Intrinsic Paths shop and keeping an eye on social media for upcoming art markets in Colorado. All Patrons receive 25% off anything in the shop, always!

4. Engaged Contemplation
Guided (virtual and in-person) meditation, walking meditation, and nature/body/breathing-based practice. Honoring many forms, teachers, traditions, and rituals. Always with imperfection, humility, and vulnerability.

"...the Earth will be safe
 when we feel safe in ourselves."

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

5. Movement Weaving

Protected time creating alongside inspiring individuals and grassroots initiatives that tug on my heart and inspire a more loving, connected, and just world. See some of the Movement Weaving organizations supported by Patrons here.

My Brief Story:
In 2010, I spent 242 days walking across the United States and have continued to walk alongside thousands of people for thousands of miles. I'm a passionate "Walking Artist", social entrepreneur (co-ops!), and advocate for racial, social, and economic justice. I'm also LGBTQIA+, Creator of Intrinsic Paths (+ Pedestrian Dignity), and Founder of Walk2Connect. I am the author of WALK - Slow Down, Wake Up, & Connect at 1-3 Miles Per Hour with North Atlantic Books. I also finished my studies at the Living School for Action and Contemplation in 2017 and have committed my life to help people deepen and heal their relationship with one another, the natural world, and themselves.

Goals
186 of 250 patrons
A dream. Beyond a gift. You are my flowing stream. I will make special prints of a custom piece of ink art that will go out to all Patrons to show my gratitude and to celebrate this goal.
