In this edition of Video Streak we join the GTA Skinnydippers group for an evening of naked bowling. Next we visit Lupin Lodge in California to interview the owner, Lori Kay and to show you around this inviting naturist destination. Included is an announcement of Bodyfest 2017 - one in California in June and another near Toronto, Canada in July. Also included is a preview short of one of our movies, "Garden of Eden".

"Naturism" is an expression of the normalization of the clothes-free body in a social atmosphere that is not charged with sexuality. Most modern cultures indoctrinate us with the idea that being nude, if not in private, is intrinsically a sexual provocation. Every enlightened and thoughtful person in the world knows this is nonsense. The experience of being nude in a broader setting is truly liberating and should not be denied to anyone. Social interaction becomes more honest when textile barriers are down. Experiencing nature becomes more connected and sensual. Naturism is ultimately about becoming a more conciliatory human... with the world and with other humans.
We are open to receiving suggestions, invitations, submissions, ideas, contributions... We are looking for people who can shoot video (and photos) at places and times that are difficult for us to get to. Please get in touch. [email protected]
Men and women have at their disposal an array of resources for generating greater knowledge of truth so that their lives may be ever more human. Among these is philosophy, which is directly concerned with asking the question of lifes meaning and sketching an answer to it. Philosophy emerges, then, as one of noblest of human tasks. According to its Greek etymology, the term philosophy means "love of wisdom". Born and nurtured when the human being first asked questions about the reason for things and their purpose, philosophy shows in different modes and forms that the desire for truth is part of human nature itself. It is an innate property of human reason to ask why things are as they are, even though the answers which gradually emerge are set within a horizon which reveals how the different human cultures are complementary.
Philosophys powerful influence on the formation and development of the cultures of the West should not obscure the influence it has also had upon the ways of understanding existence found in the East. Every people has its own native and seminal wisdom which, as a true cultural treasure, tends to find voice and develop in forms which are genuinely philosophical. One example of this is the basic form of philosophical knowledge which is evident to this day in the postulates which inspire national and international legal systems in regulating the life of society.
Nonetheless, it is true that a single term conceals a variety of meanings. Hence the need for a preliminary clarification. Driven by the desire to discover the ultimate truth of existence, human beings seek to acquire those universal elements of knowledge which enable them to understand themselves better and to advance in their own self-realization. These fundamental elements of knowledge spring from the wonder awakened in them by the contemplation of creation: human beings are astonished to discover themselves as part of the world, in a relationship with others like them, all sharing a common destiny. Here begins, then, the journey which will lead them to discover ever new frontiers of knowledge. Without wonder, men and women would lapse into deadening routine and little by little would become incapable of a life which is genuinely personal.
