Banyen's Description: 

Stress and pain are part of the human condition. They can often leave us feeling irritable, tense, overwhelmed, or burned-out. The key to maintaining balance is responding to stress not with frustration and self-criticism, but with mindful, nonjudgmental awareness of our bodies and minds.

In A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook, mindfulness experts Bob Stahl and Elisha Goldstein adapt Jon Kabat-Zinn’s groundbreaking program into an accessible workbook format: Readers turn to this book once a week for eleven weeks, gradually improving their ability to relieve intense stress and reconnect with the present.

Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) is a clinically proven program for alleviating stress, anxiety, panic, depression, chronic pain, and a wide range of medical conditions. Taught in classes and clinics worldwide, this powerful approach shows you how to focus on the present moment in order to permanently change the way you handle stress.

This workbook invites readers to participate in formal and informal practices and use fill-in exercises to reflect and track their progress. The enclosed audio-CD includes 21 guided meditations and offers extensive supplemental material that readers can listen to anytime to receive a refresher course on MBSR techniques and useful guidance for bringing these techniques into their days.

“These illuminating insights and practical exercises can transform your life and even help you build a stronger brain.” —Daniel Siegel, author of Mindsight

“This is an excellent, systematic, helpful, and practical workbook. Doing these practices brings many blessings. They will reduce stress and truly transform your life.” —Jack Kornfield, author of The Wise Heart
