I was listening to a talk about food, contact, desire to act and consciousness.

Baby's flesh, flayed cow, being dragged to a burning pit and being stuck by spear.

Now if someone is meditating and happens to experience the jhanas, that is also an experience in consciousness which certainly cannot be considered wretched.   

I suppose, these are two different categories, one is spiritual in nature aimed towards liberation and the other is attachment to the body or is it that one needs to give up the jhanic kind too?

This question is borderline incoherent. Are you simply asking if the Jhanas are important?
