Embodied Healing - Self & World

Fall 2022: iCourse/oCourse

Leonardo Lab Series

What is embodied knowledge?


Why explore embodied knowledge now?


In the era of pandemics and meta, what's the role of the body?


Explore resilience and wellbeing.

Students in this Lab will develop multicultural practices (tools, methodologies, approaches) to investigate healing ourselves, our communities, and our world through embodiment: the physical expression of knowledge and narrative. These approaches will empower students as creators and co-creators to impact their work in healing of self and the different worlds they inhabit/enter. This will be a course of exploration, connection, and reflection guided by questions to spark curiosity, empathy, courage and connection.


  • Collaborators TBA

Impact Outcomes

Students will share their findings with the general public in a format of their choosing.

Leonardo Labs

Presented in partnership with Leonardo, the Leonardo Lab Series uses a unique arts, science, and technology perspective to understand and address social problems in an ever-changing, technological world. Working in new media art forms like augmented reality, experimental publishing platforms and more, students navigate the complex challenges humans face amidst increasing mediation, finding opportunities for liberation, self-determination, connection, and joy. To learn more about Leonardo, visit their website at http://leonardo.asu.edu
