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 platform dedicated to contemplative philosophies and practices. We are currently inviting submissions to TARKA, our monthly online journal.  Each month will feature a selection of articles curated around a particular theme.

We are especially interested in work from scholar/practitioners and in highlighting the intersection of religious/spiritual practice and social concerns.  The journal offers a combination of new work and articles that have been previously published (that are republished with permission from the author and copyright holders).

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 1000 and 4000 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.

Are you interested in writing for TARKA? Submissions are welcome.  Please find a list of our upcoming themes below. General submissions are also welcome for consideration.  

October – Perennial Philosophy

November – Religious/Spiritual Pluralism

December – Comparative Perspectives on Light and Breath.  

If you would like your writing to be considered, please send a short introductory email about yourself to hello@embodiedphilosophy.com along with a sample to be considered.  Please include “Submission for Consideration” in the subject line. All submissions will be kept confidential and will not be shared or published without permission from the author.

Please note in the email if you are interested in becoming a member of our faculty. Responsibilities include teaching online video interactive courses (4-12 modules/weeks) on topics relevant to our editorial focus. Compensation competitive with rates for adjunct lecturers will be offered on a per-module basis.
