Experiential Liminality

In this podcast, we explore linguist Daniel Everett’s concept of “experiential liminality,” which is a term he coined while studying the language and culture of the Pirahã of Amazonas. According to Everett’s account, these people seem focused on the present moment and fascinated with the appearance and disappearance of phenomena in their field of awareness. I present a guided meditation aimed at helping those of us who are not quite as anchored in the present moment as the Pirahã to taste experiential liminality.
