Join our Faculty of Writers and Teachers

Join our esteemed community of writers and scholar-practitioners, dedicated to transmitting the teachings of Eastern philosophy to an increasingly diverse audience.

What We're Looking For

Embodied Philosophy is an online educational portal dedicated to Indian, Chinese, and Southeast Asian philosophies and practices. We are currently in the process of building a more robust writing faculty of scholars and scholar-practitioners to educate our growing audience on the nuances of Eastern thought, practice and the intersection between these modes of praxis and the contemporary cultural milieu.

Independent one-off submissions are welcome, however EP is seeking regular monthly (or bi-monthly) contributors. Compensation packages will be offered to those who are accepted as regular writing faculty.

Topics include, but are not limited to: Buddhism, Taoism, Kashmir Shaivism, Classical Yoga, Samkhya, Orthodox Indian Darsanas, Sanskrit, Modern Postural Yoga, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, Mindfulness, Meditation, Neuroscience, the intersection of Eastern and Western philosophy, cross-cultural philosophical inquiry, social justice, consciousness studies, psychology, cultural critique, aesthetics and literary analysis.

Because the audience of Embodied Philosophy is comprised of intellectually-curious practitioners and scholar-practitioners, we invite captivating work that can be consumed by both academic and non-academic audiences alike.

We prefer submissions between 1500 and 5000 words. Longer articles will be occasionally accepted, but with the request that they be separated into shorter pieces to be published separately. Relevant images and other media are welcome, but not necessary.

Submissions will be published with the launch of our new, custom-designed website this summer. Submissions will also be considered for our quarterly journal, TARKA, launching at the end of 2017.
