Overview

Perhaps no other person has done more to bring mindfulness meditation into the contemporary landscape of America than Jon Kabat-Zinn. Through a number of research studies, and through Kabat-Zinn's pioneering work at the University of Massachusetts Medical School where he is founder of its world-renowned Stress Reduction Clinic, mindfulness is finally being recognized as a highly effective tool for dealing with stress, chronic pain, and other illnesses.

Now with this four-part home training course, Jon Kabat-Zinn offers listeners the definitive mindfulness meditation practice on CD. We are not trying to actively achieve a state of deep relaxation-or any other state for that matter-while practicing mindfulness, he teaches. But interestingly, by opening to an awareness of how things actually are in the present moment, we often taste very deep states of relaxation and well-being of both body and mind.

Course objectives:

  • Utilize body and mind meditations in daily practice
  • Practice mindful yoga with clear, safe and simple instructions
  • Describe the basic state of being which is present awareness
  • Compare the results of unmoving, sitting meditation to a movement meditation such as mindful yoga

Join the bestselling author of Coming to Our Senses (Hyperion, 2005) and Wherever You Go, There You Are (Hyperion 1995) to develop and deepen your personal mindfulness practice, and to taste the universal aspects of stillness, clarity, wisdom, compassion, and well-being that Guided Mindfulness Meditation offers.

    You can't get much better than Jon Kabat-Zinn

    If you are truly committed to starting a healthy and & mindful lifestyle, than this series is an absolute must. The Stress Reduction program (MBSR) designed by Jon Kabat-Zinn is revolutionary. These meditations are scholarly, compassionate, and purposeful. If it feels overwhelming to start something like this by yourself, I encourage you to seek out an MBSR training class in your area, and/or read about Jon's MBSR course in his book "Full Catastrophe Living". This program has helped me tremendously to better deal with my bouts of depression, and with daily stress. Mindful meditation practice is central to my life now. Be well!

    Good, if you are want to add another CD to your library

    While the author is well versed and very knowledgeable in the subject and content area, the length of the meditations are a bit long to put into effective and practical use on a daily basis. Other meditations around 30 minutes from start to finish can be quite effective, particularly for the busy professional working it into a noon break. Most meditations were in excess of 40 minutes and are better for the weekends.

    A good start if you are willing to put in effort

    A good start to mindfulness, takes a lot of effort for a beginner. Meditations are 45min. Easy to follow if you can stay attentive, which is the whole point of learning to be mindful!

    You don't have to like it, just do it.

    I have found this very helpful in introducing me to mindfulness meditation without a lot of Buddhist terminology or theology. It's very practical. The meditations are long, but as they say, you'll make time or you'll make excuses.

    A practical introduction

    Jon has introduced mindfulness into the mainstream of American society, which is a great achievement, since mindfulness has truly remarkable powers for transformation and healing.
