In Buddhist psychology, 'vedanā' refers to the pleasure-pain aspect of anything we experience - physical or mental. This concept, often translated as 'feeling tone', is as simple as it is fascinating. Vedanā guides our attention and conditions our behaviour and automatic patterns, but it can also be used to free ourselves from such reactivity – helping us cultivate calm and insight.

Bernat Font is an experienced dharma teacher and has recently finished his doctoral thesis on this topic. During these six online sessions, he will take some of his findings and explore their relevance for practitioners, suggesting meditation exercises and daily life reflections. Thus, while drawing on theory, this is not primarily a study course, but one which bridges study and practice - with an emphasis on the latter according to the participants' interests and needs.

Each session will include discussion on the theme and practice suggestions from the previous week, presentation of the new material, and a short meditation.

Sessions (subject to change, like everything):

1. The temperature of experience
2. Where do emotions fit into the satipaṭṭhānas?
3. Vedanā & perception
4. Using vedanā for liberation: countering and transforming
5. Different types of pleasure
6. Noticing what's absent
