Mindfully Exploring Pleasure
with STEPHANIE NASH

August 5th
7:30-9:00pm

Insight LA
1430 Olympic Blvd.
Santa Monica, CA 90404


Can meditation be fun?

Can I get the same benefits from noticing pleasant experience
as I can from noticing discomforts or watching the breath?

Can mindful awareness of pleasant experience help me
with my habit of negative thinking?


....
Join us for this fun journey through discriminating & fully experiencing pleasant and positive experience in our sense gates – hearing, seeing, tasting, smelling, touching, feeling, and thinking – using techniques & strategies that are applicable in one's daily life - to develop Discrimination, Concentration, Sensory Clarity & Equanimity.

By noticing how we create our world – with thoughts, feelings & perceptions – and by choosing to selectively attend to even quite subtly positive, pleasant, healthy experience – without grasping – we can create new habits of thinking, feeling and responding to our moment-by-moment experience (creating more ease, happiness & insight.)


ALL LEVELS of EXPERIENCE are WELCOME
