ABOUT EMBODIED PHILOSOPHY
In a cultural climate exhibiting profound levels of anxiety and depression, stress and alienation, apathy and moral malaise, Embodied Philosophy recognizes the need for what we call embodied philosophical living. Embodied philosophy is not philosophy of the intellect alone, but is an integrated, non-dualistic living wisdom. It is a decision to live with mindfulness, insight, attention and intention - one day at a time. Drawing on the perennial wisdom of the wider yoga and wisdom traditions - largely from the East - we seek to prescribe practices, activities, and modes of living that actualize liberating patterns of thought and behavior. These new patterns break us out of the habits that continuously cause us pain and suffering and reorient our lives in empowering ways.
By letting go of that which doesn't serve us and adopting daily practices that help us to evolve and expand, levels of creativity, happiness, and health increase exponentially. Embodied Philosophy works for the transformation of our lives at the physiological, the psychological, and the spiritual level by making accessible and available the wisdom that has been improving lives for thousands of years.
