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.

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.

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

The first cd has a 40 minutes body scan meditation. I had been practicing mindfulness by listening to guided meditations and, for me, using this first cd allowed me to advance to the next level. I have been listening to it for about a month and I look forward to the awareness body scan every morning. I get the thing about his voice but have gotten used to it. To me, the other 3 disks are not as good and have lots of silence spaces but I will try them again.

Not for everyone. As some have said, his voice is annoying. Sorry, I'm being judgmental.

These CDs can be used in tandem with the book "Full Catastrophe Living" to develop one's own eight week mindfullness program.
