Jonathon Stalls is creating Intrinsic Paths
120
patrons
Beautiful people! Thank you for visiting my Patreon page.

What is Patreon?
Patreon is a membership platform that helps ~ people like you ~ move more intentionally alongside creators like me ; ). It's a way for me to (A) be freely supported by people who believe in what I bring to the world and (B) offer unique art, content, and community to those who desire to learn and grow with me. Patronage isn't a donation and it isn't fee-for-service. It's relationship. Watch the video above and scroll below so you have an idea for what flows between and around Intrinsic Paths and my incredible Patrons. 

What is Intrinsic Paths?
a way of being
 ...a creative journey focused on walking invitation and engaged contemplation to deepen and widen personal and collective relationship to one another, to one's inner landscape, and to the natural world.

Why Patreon?
So much of my time with Intrinsic Paths is uncounted, freely given, and far beyond what could ever be named on this page. I crave for personal and collective time, talent, passion, and skill maturing beyond the realm of transaction (set product fees, cost per hour, this for that, scarcity, and money over relationship). I believe too much in being radically authentic and in the healing work of transformation (flow, gift, service, abundance, enough, human connection). 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, how I give, how I serve, how I show up, how I risk and how I make art.

I'm excited for those who find joy and curiosity in joining along. ; )


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

~ Storytelling and organizing on perils of walking & pedestrianism
~ Inspiring grassroots campaigns, communities, and organizations

~ Themed w
alking invitations (incl. half-day, full-day, multi-day)

Current Projects & Content:

1. Ways of Walking Workshop!
Starting on July 1st, this Patreon page will host a 12-week virtual workshop exploring 12 themes to deepen and widen personal and collective connection to walking or moving at an unhurried pace. You can learn more about this workshop by visiting the Ways of Walking workshop page on the Intrinsic Paths website here. All Patrons will receive updates and workshop content for the entire 12-week period beginning in July and ending in mid-September of 2019.

2. Poetry & Artistic Expression

Centering on all the themes named above and below throughout this project.

3. Walking Invitation & Pedestrian Dignity
(1) contemplative, long-distance, and human dignity-themed walking experiences (for individuals, couples, organizations, movements, and groups), (2) storytelling and reflecting on challenges, barriers, and opportunities facing our most human form of getting around and (3) organizing an educational campaign through storytelling and organizing called  Pedestrian Dignity that will use video, photo, and experiential documentation of various environments that are violent, hostile, and crushing for today's pedestrian.

4. Reflections on Humility, Human Dignity, Justice & Bold Love
Thoughts, resources, and stories on issues of class, race, LGBTQIA, religion, politics, cooperative economics, gift economics & more.

5. Movement Building
Protected time to create and help design grassroots campaigns, logos/brands, promotional material, and more for inspiring individuals, cooperatives, and community-lead initiatives that tug on my heart and that inspire a more loving and just world. See some of the groups and individuals I'm working to support here .

6. Jewelry & Made Things
I am currently finding joy in making necklaces and other pieces from fallen Cedar/Juniper branches, seashells, and rocks that have each been hand chosen on while on walks. Center to Center Peace Necklaces will be sent to (A) all Patrons who join at the $10 tier or above and (B) people on my path who are doing beautiful and inspiring things in the world.

7. Drawing & Photography
Pencil, ink, photography and multi-media pieces (supporting content, independent reflections, specific sentiments, cartoons, characters).

8. LGBTQIA + Art Exploration & Inspiration
Drawing, poetry, and resource sharing that draws out lgbtqia+ imagination, creativity, and connection.

9. Writing a Manuscript
for a hopeful book with the working title "Walking to Survive". One-third of the book is complete as of September 2018. I'm working on finishing the remaining 6-8 chapters and formalizing a publishing process throughout 2019.

Most of my content will eventually circulate public channels in addition to this Patreon page. Consider your patronage as half 'tip jar' and half exclusive content/invitation.

Where Your Support Goes:
Materials, tools, online fees, equipment, travel, food, heat, shelter, and all that goes into keeping me alive and this creative journey breathing, moving, risking, and loving.

Welcome Statement:
Patrons 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 to moving by wheelchair or powered stroller.

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 artist, social entrepreneur/co-op owner, and advocate for social, economic and racial justice. I'm also LGBTQIA+, Creator of Intrinsic Paths, and Founder of Walk2Connect. I finished my studies at the Living School for Action and Contemplation in 2017 and have committed much of my life to help people deepen and heal relationship to one another, to the natural world, and to themselves.

There is nothing more important to me than bold love, inner freedom, human dignity, nature wisdom, and creative expression.

A Few Notes on Walking
Our most inherent form of getting around (especially in the U.S.A.) has been radically misunderstood, deprioritized, and too often seen and embedded as inefficient, slow, and lacking progress. Fellow humans who face this the most are those who have no other choice but to walk. My creative process drums with those who move at a 1-3 mile per hour pace because they have to. After walking thousands of miles on just about every kind of landscape alongside just about every category of person, I'm convicted and compelled to be a creative voice in helping us reclaim and reorient our relationship to walking. It is a foundational, fundamental, and inherent human activity that needs to be (privately and publically) prioritized, better understood and honored.

Additionally, all of my references to walking are inclusive to 'Hiking'. Broadly speaking, North America is the only continent that so deeply separates our first form of getting around. There are many layers here ~ more of my thoughts on this will be shared in the folds of my work.

***
Center to Center Peace Necklaces:
Every Patron at the $10 tier or above will get a Center to Center Peace Necklace
(and additional jewelry/art pieces throughout their life as a Patron)


Unique wooden pieces that are custom cut and chosen for you. They are attached to two hemp ropes of varied colors. They are from the fallen branches of Cottonwoods, Cedars/Junipers and Pine that are gently picked up in or near river beds and semi-arid desert environments in Colorado and New Mexico. They are made to inspire what is Divine, radiant, and radically possible within.
