Description

This third collection of Naked Poetry was written in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. This third collection of naturist poetry shares the same foundation as the first two volumes; the embracing of a naturist philosophy, meditation and depth psychology. If one dares to see the physical reality of oneself, perhaps an acceptance of the truths that one finds in one's body, it will give a person the strength and courage to look even deeper, beneath the skin, to come to terms with the authentic self that each of us keeps hidden within. Stripping away clothing is just one step, perhaps the first vital step towards becoming a whole person. Beneath the clothing is just skin, something that all humans share. Yet we hide that basic, natural state as if our natural selves are somehow shameful, perhaps even evil. We cling desperately to clothing with the idea that our clothing defines us. Our identity is placed upon these clothes, which we wear to push others away from the vulnerable and soft center within which lays within each of us; our eternal self, our soul. None of us is able to find soul in things outside of our natural body: not in our clothing, not in our possessions, not in our work or play, not in our rituals and addictions, or in our relationships with others. We can only find our soul by daring to turn our gaze back onto ourselves and into ourselves.show more

About Robert G Longpre

Robert is a retired educator and psychotherapist who lives in Elrose, Saskatchewan, Canada with his wife Maureen. They have been married for more than forty years. He is father to three children, and grandfather to six incredible grandsons. The question of what to do with the shift from working for a living to retirement left the question, 'Now what?' to be answered. The answer grew out of a lifetime of writing on the side for pleasure, and sometimes (perhaps too often) for personal self-therapy. There has always been a compulsion to write. Sometimes that compulsion was met by prose, mostly non-fiction, on-line participation in discussion groups that focused on Jungian psychology, and in recording dreams and responses to life in personal journals. Poetry continued to be written over the decades including the two collections of naturist poems that began this current series, "Naked Poetry." Since retirement, Robert has maintained a prolific body of blog posts at his various blog sites as well as publishing a number of photo-psychology books in a series called Through a Jungian Lens. As well as venturing into the domain of novel and autobiography. Robert can be contacted at: rglongpre.ca@gmail.comshow more
