Mindfully Exploring Pleasure
with STEPHANIE NASH
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
