The Return to Embodiment: consciousness, culture, creativity and flourishing

The Return to Embodiment: consciousness, culture, creativity and flourishing

By Kim Rothwell
The Return to Embodiment is love song to the ordinary, the poetic, the implicit world of the body itself as a place of knowing and movement as our very first language. It's a phenomenological exploration of how and what moves us as we travel among the social, cultural, historical, environmental settings in which we find ourselves. Each individual I interview offers particular experiences, grounded in this knowing.
