Incarnational literacy is a multimodal, maker-centered, arts-based literacy engagement. As an emerging method and theoretical orientation, it incorporates core principles and transformative tools from the domains of creativity, arts-based inquiry, literacy, and spirituality. This experimental, multimodal dissertation chronicles the conception and ongoing development of incarnational literacy through a series of autoethnographic narratives, demonstrating the existential benefits of the integrated practice of artmaking and literacy engagements. This study also highlights the role and function of videogames and virtual reality experiences, revealing the benefits of introspective gameplay as tools of inquiry and meaning-making - further enriching the developing practice and domain of incarnational literacy.
