Definition of Comportment

What is Comportment?

“The posture is the practice” (paraphrasing Dogen). Comportment comes from the Latin – to bear, to carry. Literally, it means “to be with carrying”. It suggests: an embodied stance and the behaviors that are part of an embodied practice: how one carries oneself. And it suggests how we actively bear or carry qualities of a world.

Comportment is active, relational, and embodied. And this is what we are curious about – how can we come up with new styles of comportment for creative practices in a creative universe?
