Banyen's Description: 

You’re already in the perfect moment for inhabiting this liberating awareness, which is always available.

Perhaps no other person in North America has done more to bring mindfulness meditation into the mainstream than Jon Kabat-Zinn. Through many research studies and his pioneering work at the University of Massachusetts where he is founder of its world-renowned Stress Reduction Clinic, Kabat-Zinn has served as a recognized bridge between science and meditation. With Mindfulness for Beginners, he offers the definitive course designed specifically to introduce new students to the proven benefits of mindfulness practice, including stress reduction, alleviation of depression, chronic pain relief, and more.

On CD 1, Kabat-Zinn presents “Mindfulness 101”—an accessible, comprehensive tutorial that addresses the basics of mindfulness meditation and explores the spacious, luminous, and mysterious qualities of awareness itself. He speaks of cultivating the “Seven Key Attitudinal Factors” of mindfulness-based stress reduction—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.”

CD 2 guides listeners through a series of five meditations meant to be used at home, at work, or while traveling. Includes Eating Meditation, Mindfulness of Breathing, and Mindfulness of the Body.

Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way—on purpose, in the present moment, and without judgment. This special kind of attention nurtures greater awareness, and is a simple yet powerful route for getting ourselves back in touch with our own wisdom and vitality. Now, Jon Kabat-Zinn brings the practice of meditation to the widest possible audience with Mindfulness for Beginners.

Also by Jon Kabat-Zinn are the books Wherever You Go, There You Are and Coming to our Senses—as well as Guided Mindfulness Meditations (series 1, 2, and 3 on CD).
