WHAT IS LOVEOLOGY?
The pseudo-science version:
The ‘theoretical and methodological study of love via its psychology, related social sciences, history and historical analysis, philosophy, world religions and theology - the systemic search into revealing the nature and dynamics of love in all of its various forms and aspects. It is also the body of knowledge, theory and information into the nature and dynamics of the phenomenon known as love.’
The simple version? The belief that every great story is a love story.
Love of others + self. Love of home, lost and found, built and yearned for.
Love of country, of body, of mind, of spirit, of soul. Love of land and sea and love of all that is conjured in the spaces in between.
Love, that has shaped what has been, and love, that calls forth what it is that could be: this multifaceted love works its way into the nooks and crannies of the stories we look to in order to define ourselves. To find out what we’re named.
We are all about the curious revelation of love in all of its forms, taking up its unyielding and unruly space.
