Join Our Upcoming Webinar on May 24th
Join America Walks for a conversation with Jonathon Stalls about his book WALK: Slow Down, Wake Up, and Connect at 1-3 Miles Per Hour. Jonathon spent 242 days walking across the United States in 2010 and has continued to move alongside thousands of people for thousands of miles. While most of us won’t walk or roll across the country, the deep wisdom and insights that Stalls receives from the people, land, and animals he meets on his pilgrimage have profound impacts on each of us. In WALK, he shares how walking deepened his relationship with himself as a gay man, offering deep and clarifying emotional medicine. He confronts the systemic racism, classism, and ableism that shape and reshape the communities he walks through.
