The taste of experience: practising with vedana with John Peacock

7 April 2019 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

One of the most important aspects of the four ways of establishing Mindfulness is *Vedana.* *Vedana *is the taste of all of our experience in its pleasantness, unpleasantness, and neither. Every second of our existence can be seen to come with an hedonic tone that when left unexamined determines how we behave, think and react. This reactivity over the course of a lifetime forms our character and personality traits that at first glance appear to be innate. However, when we begin to examine *Vedana *we begin to see how much of our life is simply reactivity to the pleasantness and unpleasantness that we encounter on a daily basis. This day is devoted to learning to practice with *Vedana.*
