I read that Epicurean 'pleasures of body' are unique to each individual. i.e. each person experiences the "pleasures of the body" in a different way.

I wondered whether Epicurean 'pleasures of mind' unique to each individual, or are they universal?

Is it clearly stated anywhere in the original text? Or scholarship?
