What if you could profoundly change your life just by becoming more mindful of your breathing? According to Jon Kabat-Zinn, you can. What if paying attention on purpose and non-judgmentally could improve your health? Again, according to Dr. Kabat-Zinn, it can.

In Mindfulness for Beginners, this internationally known scientist, best-selling author, and teacher who brought mindfulness meditation into the mainstream of medicine and society gives you immediate access to a practice that can potentially add years to your life, and will certainly enhance the quality of your moments and your years. Join Dr. Kabat-Zinn to:

  • Explore five guided meditations that lead you breath by breath into the essence of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), a program offered in medical clinics and hospitals around the world
  • Cultivate the Seven Key Attitudinal Factors of MBSR, qualities of heart and mind that lay the foundation for mindfulness practice and for seeing and accepting things as they are as a first step to working wisely and compassionately with stress, pain, illness, and sorrow as well as life's joys and pleasures, Zorba's full catastrophe
  • Free yourself from limiting perspectives, and become more intimate with your own boundless awareness

    You're already in the perfect moment for inhabiting this liberating awareness, which is always available, teaches Jon Kabat-Zinn.

      " This is an audio book and will probably remain as currently reading because I have to follow the mindfulness meditations as part of my therapy. Jon Kabat-Zinn is very clear and easy to understand. I can understand why my therapist suggested I follow the meditations in his audio book. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phyllis | 12/30/2013

      " This is CD set that I recommend to everyone. Listen to it when it's quiet and pay attention. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nan | 12/28/2013

      " Kabat-Zinn's voice is almost too calming; find myself struggling a bit with staying awake for the meditations. Do like the content, though, and will recommend it to friends and clients. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David O'neal | 12/14/2013

      " it was a quick read and i found myslef going back to parts of it. part explanation and part guided meditation excercises, i found it very helpful but i either need to buy my own copy or re-read it becuase the few weeks I had it from the library wasn't enough to fully explore it. "

      " I listened to this book on meditation. It's only two CDs: good. But the second CD really challenged me to be aware of my surroundings and I was not up to the challenge. I will revisit this one when I am ready to be mindful. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 9/19/2013
