My biggest discovery was that you can literally recreate your life

In the fourth week of Joy and the Body, Aisha Paris Smith talks about pleasure as a resource. When we know what feels good, we become more aware of what feels not good. Once we've experienced pleasure, we know we can aspire to more. In this clip, she talks about pleasure that is cost-free, within the body, and individual pleasure that weaves into a political act of reclaiming pleasure in under-resourced communities. She also shares a practice of mindful pleasure that you can do any time, any day, any where, for yourself.
