Home > Muir's Nature Church — The Unruly Mystic: John Muir
John Muir was a mystic who experienced the sacredness of nature. He felt that nature was a mirror of our inner selves, and that we could find God in the beauty of the natural world.
Muir writes about nature in a way that conveys holiness and sacredness. It helps us recognize that we can encounter God even more intimately and directly in nature.
Awe is a positive emotion that is little understood, but has been shown to have a number of benefits, including increased creativity and a sense of connection to something larger than oneself.
John Muir figured out how to use the natural currents of the earth, helping him move in the direction he wanted to go.
