The Courageous Freedom of Anaïs Nin

Jeff CarreiraNew Paradigm Thinking, Philosophical InquiryLeave a Comment

During the first half of the 20th century a beautiful and courageously free-spirited woman named Anaïs Nin pushed boundaries and social norms while producing some of the most important writing of her time. Nin is recognized by many as one of the finest writers of female erotica and her diaries have guided millions of readers to a deeper exploration of themselves. In this presentation you will explore Nin’s life and the ideas she shared in her writings. You will see how her bold willingness to embrace life fully forced all of us to reconsider what it could mean to be human.

“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”

~ Anaïs Nin
