The Embodiment Manifesto, By Philip Shepherd
I believe that humanity can survive the crises that are mounting around us – but that our ability to make it will depend on us forging a new kind of clarity. Specifically, we need to shed light on the story we tell ourselves about what it means to be human. It’s a story almost too familiar to question, yet it provokes fantasies of limitless growth and power, and puts us on a collision course with the realities of our world. I believe this story is the single greatest danger to our survival. I also believe that the single most dangerous effect of this story is the way it estranges us from our own bodies, and makes that feel normal.
