Episode #155 Cultivating pleasure when you don't feel good- part 1

In this episode:

This week’s episode is inspired by a question that Ava received during a recent silent retreat.

The question was something along the lines of how can we cultivate peace and happiness in the body when we are experiencing chronic pain or health issues.

This 2 part series will explore the philosophy behind pleasure and also provide you with tools to cultivate your own pleasure during periods of discomfort and unease.
