    " This one is work to get through. Full of academic arrogance and a thinly veiled attitude of spiritual superiority. I hope the next 400 pages offer something which makes the finger wagging worth tolerating "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Michelle | 1/29/2014

    " Amazing book! I've read several books on mindfulness and meditation over the years, but none of them were actually practical. This book explains clearly not only the reasons why you should train yourself to practice mindfulness but also how to do it. It lays out Kabat-Zinn's 8-wk meditation immersion from his stress reduction clinic associated with UMass medical center, where physicians send their patients with the most difficult chronic medical conditions for relief that can't be had with medication alone. If you can't practically travel to his center weekly for 8 weeks, you can certainly follow along with his instructions in this book. It's really quite amazing. I wish this book had been given to me as a tool when I was in medical school. I have personally benefited from following this program through the depths of my own illness, and I hope one day to get well enough to lead many patients to this amazing tool. "
