During the experimentation process, Henry Thoreau described the beauty and freedom of living a simple and independent lifestyle away from the common herd of men. His self cultivation process focused on his inner self and aligned best with striving to achieve wisdom, contentment, freedom, and tranquility. In solitude and nature, he was able to make sense of his identity, and meditate on the extensive problems of living and existing in the world. Thoreauvian’s model of immersing oneself with nature is proposed in his writings, and challenges one to reflect on both the act of walking, and one’s relationship with nature. The kernel of self cultivation is present in his writings and experiment as he purposefully withdraws from his external obligations of society and attends his internal arena in order to amplify his spiritual connection with nature. Hence, one will reference Thoreau’s excerpt titled, "Walking," to highlight his interpretation of the significance and art of walking as a means to self cultivate his inner state of being.
