Resumen

MEIRING, Jacob  y  MULLER, Julian C.. Deconstructing the body: Body theology, embodied pastoral anthropology and body mapping. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.31, n.1, pp. 1-7. ISSN 1609-9982.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v31i1.367.

This article is an effort to deconstruct narratives regarding the body. Body theology as developed by James B. Nelson forms the basis for a literature study as well as an exploration of an embodied pastoral anthropology, within the context of a postfoundationalist practical theology and an openness to interdisciplinary dialogue. Qualitative interviews and the body-mapping process were used within the context of narrative research to narrate people's stories regarding their bodies in relation to their spiritual journey as well as to increase an awareness of a holistic, embodied spirituality.

Palabras clave : James B. Nelson; embodied pastoral anthropology; body mapping; narrative approach; holistic embodied spirituality.
