Pleasure is a thing that also needs accomplishing…
from The Word by Tony Hoagland
Today’s episode of the Dharma Toolkit asks a collection of fabulous guests how we can meet the deep and urgently serious aspects of life and of the current times without jettisoning a similarly vital human sense of fun, pleasure, play, spontaneity, creativity – even joy.
From painting with a beautiful thrash metal soundtrack on as ecstatic backdrop, to re-watching favourite TV shows, to going for a walk in familiar places alive to beauties in new ways. All this plus evocations of online ukulele lessons, New Orleans street bands and “the laughter of the unchained mind”.
We hope the delight of conversation amongst friends old and new lightens your day…
