Philosophical Health for All
What can we do to save the world that has not really been tried yet?
Hi, my name is Dr Luis de Miranda. Not doctor as in checking your pulse but a philosophy doctor. I am interested in people's health – a person's philosophical health. I am the initiator of the Philosophical Health International movement. I am the creator of the SMILE_PH methodology (Sense-Making Interviews Looking at Elements of Philosphical Health). Thinking as a way of healing and understanding.
Philosophical health will be in the 21st century what physical and psychological health were in the 19th and 20th century. At the beginning of the century, it is a luxury for the happy few – by the end of the century, it is a necessity for all.
Philosophical health is a state of fruitful coherence between a person’s (or collective’s) ways of thinking and speaking and their ways of acting, such that the possibilities for a good life are increased and the needs for flourishing satisfied, in respect of the world's harmony.
As a philosophical counselor, I conduct individual online conversations with individuals from all over the world to help them make sense of their life, to help them feel a greater sense of the possible, of holistic understanding and reality as an intercreative whole. I offer many discovery sessions free of charge to people who otherwise could not afford a form of therapy or dialogue that respects their dignity and thirst for meaning.
Most sessions are anonymous and confidential, but here is one example of how it works:
Philosophical health is not about finding what is wrong with a person in terms of diagnosis, norms or brain chemistry. It's about helping the person recover the mindful enthusiasm and proactive serenity of being a whole human being, with a sense of purpose and the capacity to stand for what they believe is right and fair.
By donating whatever sum, even minor, you help me find time to offer regularly 30 minutes of deep conversation to persons who need it, in all continents, from all ages, genders, and origins.
Last but not least, I have a vision. The vision of a Philosophical Health Institute that will play a role in what is perhaps the highest civilisational challenge of mankind: creating, in this century, the continuous possibility of existential regeneration for all beings, in our one harmonised planet.
