Description

Just as we can notice our breath and body sensations with mindfulness, we can also notice desire. This week, become attuned to desire as it arises, during meditation and daily life. Observe desire with curiosity, not judgment. How often are impulses to act, to think, or to feel are driven by desire? Notice the “felt sense” of desire, as sensation and energy in the body and mind. What happens to the object of your desire when you shift to the experience of desire itself?
