The Concord Writer is a "literary and publishing concern" that is dedicated to the "the words, wisdom and enduring spirit" of one of America's most famous writers, Henry David Thoreau. It was founded in 2008 by author, Cathryn McIntyre, who has written two memoirs, Honor in Concord and The Thoreau Whisperer, about her experience living in the historic town of Concord, Massachusetts. She is a writer with a natural psychic and clairvoyant ability who had the extraordinary opportunity to connect to the spirit of The Concord Writer, Henry David Thoreau.
McIntyre believes it is time to "take Thoreau back from the intellectual elites, the scholars and the academics who have held him captive for so long". When McIntyre talks about Thoreau, she is not talking about the long dead philosopher who very few people remember or care about, she is talking about a lively, wise and funny spirit whose message could not be any more needed than it is today. By sharing her own true story and his words, both those written during his lifetime and those that came after, she hopes to reach a larger audience with his message than has ever been reached before.
Amid the madness of the present time, have you forgotten that you are timeless?
Have you forgotten the power that you have within you? In The Thoreau Whisperer by Cathryn McIntyre, Thoreau will remind you.

Come to think of it, that is not unlike this website, or Cathryn McIntyre's life, or the books that she writes and would like to share with you. We invite you to follow on Twitter: (@CathrynMcIntyre).

The following introduction was written by Cathryn McIntyre back in 2008 but we like it so much we're keeping it around. You'll find much more information about Thoreau on the Thoreau page of this website.
Henry David Thoreau is most remembered as the man who lived for a time in a cabin at a place called Walden Pond, and for the book he wrote about living there, Walden: Or Life in the Woods. In Walden, Thoreau states, “Men lead lives of quiet desperation.” He believes that is because we occupy ourselves with material pursuits and neglect our spiritual natures and he advises us to “Simplify, simplify...” because the more material goods we desire, the more we must work to earn the money to acquire such goods, and the less time we therefore have to live.
Living to Thoreau is not a material endeavor, it is a spiritual one. He believes in the possibility of every individual to elevate themselves to a height not before reached, should we choose to connect to the wisdom that is there within all of us, and to seek out more than what exists for us in the physical world. He states, "I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor," and his statement, “The universe is wider than our views of it,” reminds us of the limitless possibilities that exist for us when we are in touch with our spiritual natures.
Once, in response to an inquiry from a scientifically minded man, Thoreau stated, "I am a mystic, a transcendentalist and a natural philosopher to boot." This was the best way he could think to explain who he was because as a scientist who "did not believe in the higher laws" the man would have no way of understanding the way Thoreau viewed the world.
As someone who has chosen to speak the truth of my own experience, no matter what doubt or disbelief there might be, that moment in Thoreau's life is deeply meaningful to me.
"I believe that if you pause for five minutes each day, close your eyes and allow yourself to look within, you will find your truest self and it is in that recognition that you will find your greatest joy. Open your hearts and minds to the possibilities because that spirit within you is the you that will never end. Your life is yesterday, today and every tomorrow. All who ever were still are and always will be." - Cathryn McIntyre
