Series of Conferences: The religious pluralism. The body is a dimension of existence.

Posted on

The goal of these conferences is to make an anthropological and religious approach to the body and the emotions, not only from the modernity of the christian matrix, but contextualized in traditional religious worldviews as Judaism, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism.

We will answer these questions about fundamental aspects of existence: do religions have in consideration the body or are they only interested in the spiritual part? Are sensuality, love and pleasure intimately linked? Can one truly be happy? For traditional religions the body, the sensuality and the search of happiness are something important which has to be understood within each and every one of them.
