The Pleasure Zone

by Stella Resnick, PhD

 

Good feelings of all kinds promote personal growth, happy relationships, and living life to the fullest. Pleasure is good for us. Yet most of us have learned to hold ourselves back from feeling as good as we can.

 

This book identifies the Eight Core Pleasures - eight essential ways we need to enjoy life to feel fulfilled. These are:

Primal Pleasure

Letting Go and "Just Being"

Pain Relief

Releasing and Resolving Old Hurst

 

Elemental Pleasures

Play, Humor, Movement and Sound

 

Mental Pleasures

Curiosity, Learning, Positive Thinking

 

Emotional Pleasures

Gratitude, Love, Courage, Enthusiasm

 

Sensual Pleasures

Taking Delight in the Senses

 

Sexual Pleasures

Arousal, Desire, Romance, Abandon

 

Spiritual Pleasures

Feeling A Part of Something Good

THE PLEASURE ZONE shows how you may be resisting one or all of these pleasures, how pleasure-resistance can affect health and happiness, and how to use breath and body awareness exercises to give up old habits and chronic tensions and more fully embrace all of life’s joys.
