Guided Mindfulness Meditation
Perhaps no other person has done more to bring mindfulness meditation into the contemporary landscape of North 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, on this four-part home training course (this is Series 1 of three 4-part series previously only available from www.mindfulnesstapes.com), Jon Kabat-Zinn offers listeners the definitive mindfulness meditation practice on CD. Included are Body-Scan Meditation, Mindful Yoga 1, Sitting Meditation, and Mindful Yoga 2. These are the practices used by people who enrolled in Kabat-Zinn’s courses.
We are not trying to actively achieve a state of deep relaxation—or any other state for that matter—while practicing mindfulness. 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 and Wherever You Go, There You Are 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.
