Hello world!

December 8, 2011

“Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.”

-Soren Kierkegaard


Sensuality and Animism are two heavily loaded terms (which will be discussed in future blogs), so remember that they are just labels. I use them because both terms have a lot to do with the body. The worldview of the Sensual Animist places body at the core of experience, much like the philosophy of phenomenology. Major influences include the works of David Abram, Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, and Philip Shepherd’s masterwork New Self, New World.

The Sensual Animist strives to disolve the division between mind/body, self/other, subject/object, physical/spiritual, etc… Living through harmonious interplays of relationship rather than choosing sides.

Above all, the Sensual Animist’s awareness is focused on the experience of being alive and being thankful for it. Enjoy it, otherwise, what’s the point?

I am not claiming this to be the correct worldview, but it is a worldview that myself and others may choose to live by.

So, if this way of perceiving the world is of interest to you, please leave a comment or check out this blog periodically to find new information about sensuality, phenomenology, animism, nature, excercise(including sex), art(including sex), and mindfulness.

Cool Runnings,
