Description

Mindfulness of Feeling Tone (vedana)

Join Martine for an evening exploring "Mindfulness of the Feeling Tones", the second foundation of the practice of mindfulness. Martin will take you through the different aspects of mindfulness define feeling tones and how to be mindful of them. The Pali term vedana refers to the affective tone of experience. When we come into contact through one of our six senses with the environment, we experience a pleasant, unpleasant or neither pleasant nor unpleasant feeling tone. It is important to see that feeling tones are constructed, they are not a given, they do not reside in the object we come in contact with. It is vital to be aware of feeling tones as they arise extremely fast and have a profound impact on our behavior.
