“Why the Body Bind is My Nightmare”: Evanna Lynch Blogs for HPA’s “Body Bind Horcrux” Campaign
Jan 19, 2011
The Harry Potter Alliance‘s Deathly Hallows Campaign is focusing on The Body Bind Horcrux throughout January to tackle the “feeling of being cut off from this most fundamental part of ourselves: our bodies” and to find out how we can better celebrate our bodies in the world. Evanna Lynch, who plays Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter films, has written a terrific blog post for the campaign titled “Why the Body Bind is My Nightmare”, which you can find here on the HPA website.
It’s true that the mind is where all ideas are born, but the body is the tool that translates and expresses those ideas to the wider world. It is nothing but a vehicle for our greater creative purpose but if we don’t give it fuel and keep it in good working order it instead becomes another obstacle to transcend, a physical one, as well as the many million fictitious mental ones that society presents.
