Publisher's Summary

Mindfulness Meditation is about learning to experience life fully as it unfolds - moment by moment. One popular misconception about meditation is that it is a way to make your mind blank so you can escape from what you are feeling. However, author Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn wants you to understand that meditation is an invitation to wake up, experience the fullness of your life, and transform your relationship with your problems, your fears, and any pain and stress in your life so that they don't wind up controlling you and eroding the quality of your life and your creativity. It is not about running away, or manipulating mental states.
Through the practice of mindfulness, you can learn to develop greater calmness, clarity and insight in facing and embracing all your life experiences, even life's trials, and turning them into occasions for learning, growing and deepening your own strength and wisdom.
In this program, internationally-known meditation teacher Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn shows you how to:


Access your own deep inner resources for learning, growing, and healing
Enrich your experience of everyday living by being fully present in the moment
Reduce stress by responding creatively rather than reacting mindlessly
Bring greater clarity and understanding to everything you do
Function more effectively within your apparent limitations and problems by cultivating your fundamental strengths
Reestablish contact with your physical body to heighten and expand experiences of pleasure and vitality
Reduce or overcome addictive or self-destructive behavior patterns
Develop a strong daily meditation practice

Perhaps his best work

Jon Kabat Zinn returns with another look at mindfulness. This outpouring contains all his best anecdotes, perspectives, and musings on meditation, gathered from his journey of however many years teaching and practicing. Along the way we're treated to several guided sessions that remind us that each breath, each moment is a new beginning.

Really powerful and well articulated book

I wasn't keen on the speed of narration at the beginning but when the pace smoothed out, I could focus on the message.
I am part of a mindfulness group and this brilliantly complemented the teachings. it is easily accessible to all and overall great.

A re-definition of the concept of meditation

These reflections and opportunities for practice are well worth a listen, whether familiar with or new to mindfulness. I particularly enjoyed the references to literature, poetry, philosophy and art throughout the discussion, which provided vivid and memorable examples. I will definitely return to these recordings again and again.

Such wisdom

As one who has been reading and listening to Jon Kabat-Zinn for about 30 years, and has most, if not all, of his books and CDs, I was not disappointed in this book. The first part was an overview of his Mindfulness Stress Reduction Program and refreshed material that recurs in his works, but the last part crystallised his wisdom and took the listener through a beautiful new loving kindness meditation that incorporated some poems. His gentle sincerity flows all through the book.
