Thank you for your interest in contributing to the Embodied Philosophy platform. We accept submissions that would be considered for our quarterly print journal, TARKA, and/or to be published digitally. We are especially interested in innovative, interdisciplinary work that straddles realms of scholarship and practice. Our primary areas of content are Yoga Philosophy, MindBody Studies, Dharma and Contemplative studies. In addition to more accessible yet scholarly work, we also are seeking journalistic pieces addressing current events through a contemplative lens.

Tarka Submissions

Please see the latest TARKA call for papers here.

General Submissions

For articles published in our Journal, we are generally looking for shorter articles (900-1500 words) on introductory topics and longer articles (2500-5000 words) on more specialized topics or research. For articles published digitally only, we prefer shorter contributions of not more than 2500 words. Although we will consider longer articles.


We compensate $100 for short original articles and $250 for longer articles. If you have a previously published longer article that you would like to draft into a shorter article to be published on our website, we compensate a flat $50 per article.
