Wilderness Press :: Special Interest :: Meditations of Ralph Waldo Emerson
Meditations of Ralph Waldo Emerson
Meditations of Ralph Waldo Emerson 
Ralph Waldo Emerson's groundbreaking 1844 "Nature" essay influenced thinkers as disparate as Nietzsche, Thoreau, and Darwin, and his later writings seem to anticipate future discoveries in physics and psychology, as well as biology. Meditations of Ralph Waldo Emerson is a journey into the mind and heart of this great 19th century author, poet, and philosopher whose writings remain relevant and inspiring today.

In this compact book, 60 selections from 30 years of his writings reveal the essence of Emerson's spiritual vision. Like his friends John Muir and Henry David Thoreau, Emerson saw images of the divine in the natural world, and rather than seeking to conquer wilderness, sought inspiration from it.

Complementing each passage is an inspirational quote from historical and comtemporary luminaries including Margaret Fuller, the Dalai Lama, and Jack Kerouac, and voices from Taoism, Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Sufism.

About Chris Highland

The one with muddy boots and sap on his hands, with pantlegs soaked in the baptism of waterfall spray, is Chris Highland. He is a minister, a chaplain, a spiritual scootcher who has led expeditions into wisdom traditions, along mystic trails and heretic paths, for many a year.

A graduate of Seattle Pacific University with a degree in Religion and Philosophy, Chris came to Marin County, California to earn his Masters at San Francisco Theological Seminary in San Anselmo. His long journey as a chaplain has taken him from schools to jails to the streets, and his adventure of the heart has led him from the Cascades to the Sierras to the Rockies, and to the Highlands of Scotland.
