Spirituality/Religion/Philosophy/Psychology (2009)

(This archive concerns the strictly religious to the imaginatively spiritual to the deeply philosophical. Essentially this is the pursuit of being-in-the-world and ideological becoming. It includes celebrations and explorations of the beauty and power of religious/spiritual creativity. Just as important, it includes critiques of dogmatic impulses that seek to control or forbid the human creative impulse and/or human curiousity and/or free expression of love. Thus it includes secular humanism and atheism which we recognize as forms of existential spirituality. Likewise I view the twined projects of some philosophy and psychology as spiritual quests. The overlying question that grounds most of these--whether we agree with their conclusions or not, is the Deleuze/Guattari formation of the essential philosophical first move: How Should We Live?)
