A Walk with John Muir into the Wilds of the Headwaters

  • Headwaters at Incarnate Word 4503 Broadway Street Alamo Heights, Texas 78209 USA (map)

"The natural inherited wildness in our blood runs true on its glorious course as invincible and unstoppable as stars."  John Muir

When John Muir arrived by ship off the coast of California, his great desire was to go “any place that’s wild.” Muir was a botanist, naturalist, geologist, leader in establishing the National Parks and the founder of the Sierra Club. Most of all, he was a bearer of the good tidings of the beauty and mystery of creation. This reflective walk will look at the trees, the plants, and the sacred spaces of the headwaters through the inspiring lens of the writings of John Muir who always invites us to “come and see.” Retreat leader, author, and Muir enthusiast, Sylvia Maddox, M.T.S., will conduct the walk. The program is limited to 12.
