Ralph Waldo Emerson: A Visionary Life
Emerson was a profound American Transcendentalist
essayist and poet from the nineteenth century whose words
still speak deeply into our struggles to live with personal
integrity. Emerson called upon his listeners to intuitively

first-hand relationship with reality. What did Emerson
really mean and how can we integrate his work in our own
quest for meaning? Join us as we attempt to find out.
