At Walden, we believe in the power of pause

Back in the mid 1800’s, Henry David Thoreau observed that Americans are just too busy. He stepped away from the fray and headed into the woods to write his philosophical masterpiece Walden. Even then, he understood that we’d all be better off if we would slow down and simplify our lives.


A little time by the fire

After 25 years of busyness, our founder Michael Miller took a sabbatical of his own. Spending much of his time in the backyard, he paused to ponder, reconnect with family and friends, and lend a hand to colleagues. This new mindset sparked an idea: couldn’t everyone benefit from a pause? A little time by the fire?

Legacy Series Complete Fire Pit Insert Set

Best Ever!

Could not find a suitable fire pit insert anywhere and then found Walden Legacy Series on line. It looked like precisely what I was looking for so I ordered it and hoped it was as well made as it looked on the web. It wasn’t….it was BETTER than it looked on line!! I’m thrilled with the product!!! Well worth the money.

Walden Sure-Fire™ Starters

Joseph A.

Clean Burning

Love this product. I have a wood burning sauna in the city. Often times the paper and kindling I used was very smoky until the fire heated up and I worried about smoking out my neighbors. These little fire starter cakes burn very clean with very little smoke.
