Re-Kindling the Spiritual in a Postmodern World: Jeremy Johnson

1004603_10100305996203315_1775313750_nIMA Graduate Jeremy Johnson’s interdisciplinary, far-reaching blog looks at what he calls “emanant” possibilities in our contemporary world, including:

  • Potential for new kinds of human societies. I document “emanent folkways” – possible cultures and ways of life in our interconnected world.
  • Non-rational or non-Western modes of knowledge that have been previously excluded, but nevertheless hold vital understanding of ourselves and our world.
  • The rise of spiritual counter-culture as valid worldviews and visions for the future.
  • The creative imagination, the importance of understanding myth and valuing the sacred in contemporary culture.
  • Digital Culture and the New Media revolution.
  • Bringing together art and scholarship, academia and intuition, intellect and religious experience – crossing between worlds as a mode of intelligence.
  • Exploring our origins.
  • New philosophies that help articulate the contemporary shift in culture and consciousness.
  • Studying transformations, or evolutions in human culture and consciousness.
