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

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

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.
