Philip Jones
Pain and suffering are common occurrences during retreats. How do we respond to mental, emotional, and physical pain and what alternatives does the practice offer us to deal with pain? The common pattern is to seek escape from pain through pleasant sense experiences. The effort to escape and find sense pleasure leads to suffering. The practice offers practical methods for cultivating wholesome pleasant feeling in response to pain, especially the development of detachment and equanimity.
