Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Kabat-Zinn Full Catastrophe Living , founder of the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, here urges readers to practice ``mindfulness,'' a more than 2000-year-old Buddhist method of living fully in the present, observing ourselves, our feeling, others and our surroundings without judging them. Free of trendiness, the book presents meditation as a natural activity that can be practiced anytime and anywhere, without props or trappings. Kabat-Zinn explains how to live in the moment by taking up such techniques as ``non-doing,'' trust and concentration. He shows readers meditation postures and ways to meditate, including visualizing mountains and lakes, and concentrating on walking or standing. Amusing anecdotes illustrate applications of mindfulness in everyday life, including ``Cleaning the Stove While Listening to Bobby McFerrin,'' ``Cat Food Lessons'' and two chapters on parenting as a form of meditation children as ``live-in Zen masters''. This warm, witty and wise guide should bring relaxation to stressed-out people. Author tour. Jan.

    Highly recommended for those wanting to help themselves to a better way of living.

    Discovered this book while searching on the internet for ways to help my wife. She suffered a head injury 12 years ago and also had some brain dammage. It is helping her by helping me to be more relaxed and happy with who I am in all situations in my life. Now I can see that her brain is gradually healing itself. It has been since her surgery but I was to busy taking care of her to slow down and see the progress.

    Classic manual on meditation

    People consider this book a contemporary classic on meditation for good reasons. It¿s lovely and accessible. Jon Kabat-Zinn tackles the difficult task of explaining the nonverbal practice of meditation, which many find alien or even threatening, and makes it accessible, useful and even homey. He explains meditation not only with references to classic texts, but also by recounting his own experiences, drawing parallels with Thoreau, and discussing work and family contexts. The chapters are brief, some as short as a page, each focusing on a single topic. Many are accompanied with prompting questions or simple exercises you can try immediately. getAbstract recommends this book to people interested in reducing their stress, deepening their self-awareness and sharpening their focus.

    Putting Life Into Perspective

    My junior year of college I was extremely stressed out with my class load and life. A friend reccomended Wherever You Go, There you are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life. The book really put things into perspective for me and allowed me to really think about the present moment and not get too caught up in life's daily issues. I highly reccommend this book if you are wanting something relaxing to read, or just looking for a way to simplify your daily life. It has changed the way I view stress.

    I highly recommend

    I am a student of eastern philosophy and philosophy in general. I am studying to become a professor and I have recommended this book to many of my friends and colleagues. I have cited it in many of my papers. It is a wonderfully poetic and lucidly instructional book that I personally feel is a must have. Every Christmas I buy it for at least one person.

    The book of daily gems

    Wherever You Go, There You Are is a book that ought to be left on any table in one's home (not tucked away in a shelf). What a great book of wisdom.

    I am thankful for this book.

    Like most people in the world I get lost from time to time. I wander off a path paved in peace and love and soon follows despair. So many of us search for something more but we have no clue what it is.This book for me, has taught me the importance of everyday practice and also the history details I've missed from other books. Opening up your heart isnt as hard as you thought. All in all it truly means whever you go there you are so embrace it. Love yourself and those around you....Love Peace Love

    Glad I discovered this book!

    I have read many books about Buddhism and living in the present moment by different authors and Jon Kabat-Zinn has written about these things so eloquently and simplistically! From the first few pages I knew that he would become one of my favorite authors because he doesn't try to fill your head with nonsense, but instead encourages you by introducing new ways of thinking and being more open minded. I really enjoy this book and look forward to reading more by him.

    Recommended Reading for Budding Buddhists

    I immensely enjoyed this book, and have used it as a manual for living. The eternal wisdom is uncanny, and Jon makes the understanding of meditation easy for anyone to understand.

    A favorite book to read when life gets stressful

    The author of this book was director of a stress reduction clinic for many years. His experience with and insight into our usual habitual but ineffective ways of seeing life are very informative and useful. If you every wondered the value of and how to meditate, this book will provide answers.

    Meditation is a little easier now

    The book has to deal with the facrt that mindful meditation is something you indirectly do, and not something that just happens when you follow a bunch of instructions.

    Great Book

    These techniques proved of much more value to me after reading Conversations with God and An Encounter With A Prophet. Having removed all of my unconscious fears of the spiritual world I could go into a much deeper, peaceful and meaningul meditative state

    This book is well written--I suppose that's why it's popular. The problem is that meditation is often misunderstood in the west, and this book is perfect example of how psychologists view meditation, which is interesting, but not as useful as it can be. In fact, it sounds more like a type of philosophy than an actual meditation method. While there are many types of meditation in the world, their majority is designed to achieve by far greater effect than mere stress management. For example, a new book by Vlad Koros titled Secret Techniques for Controlling Sadness, Anger, Fear, Anxiety, and Other Emotions is a perfect example of what can be accomplished using even basic meditative techniques. Its techniques are different from the way meditation is viewed in the west, and the book shows you how to control your body and mind behind your stress.

    Not for everyone...

    This audio tape was very disapointing. It didn't really give any practical ways to relax or tools to use to quiet the mind. I found the author's voice annoying and the content to be a bunch of jiberish.

    This is a book on tape. If you are looking for meditation techniques this is not the book for you. I just couldn't get into it.
