This article explores a holistic vision of human sexuality by contrasting it to the prevailing
trend of “cognicentrism” in sexological studies. To this end the authors propose that a
novel understanding of sexuality as a creative force of life energy can greatly enhance such
cognicentric approaches. Such a proposal rests on a holistic approach to human nature that
has been developed over many years of educational and clinical application. Within this
holistic vision, the role of a human multidimensional cognition that is somatically rooted in
bodily nature assists the articulation of sexuality as a transformational life path of embodied
spirituality, healing, and growth.
