The problem of dis-ease
Share this post
In this video, I explore the concept of dis-ease. So why is it that modern societies find the idea and practice of mindfulness so interesting in the first place? Before moving on to actual interventions and technologies, lets pause and consider this question.
Purpose: Reflect upon the extent to which we really live with dis-ease.
Task: Think back through your last week and consider those aspects of your life that have troubled you. Evaluate the extent to which these experiences constitute dis-ease in the sense we have been discussing.
Respond: Write a comment that assesses whether you enjoy ease of being or whether you live in dis-ease, and discuss this with your peers.
Time: 15 minutes for your comment; 10 minutes each for 2 responses. You can also like other people’s comments.
