The Pleasure Dimension

Patterns

There are two problematic patterns in the Pleasure Dimension—Indulger and Food Controller. You may click on each link to learn more about the pattern and then decide if you want to explore it, now or later.

The Food Controller Pattern involves trying to manage or stop indulging, and doing it in a harsh, rigid, or extreme way. It means judging and shaming yourself whenever you overeat.

The Indulger Pattern involves overeating and obsessing about food.



Capacities

There are two complementary healthy capacities in the Pleasure Dimension--Pleasure and Conscious Consumption. You may click on each link to learn more about the capacity and then decide if you want to work on developing it, now or later.

The Conscious Consumption Capacity involves being grounded and solid enough that you don't need to overdo your eating. You can be conscious about how you consume so that you don't do anything that causes you harm.

The Pleasure Capacity involves being open to the sensuality of eating, sexuality, movement, touch, and all the bodily senses.
