Description

Ten years ago, Jon Kabat-Zinn changed the way we thought about awareness in everyday life with his now-classic introduction to mindfulness, Wherever You Go, There You Are. Now, with Coming to Our Senses, he provides the definitive book for our time on the connection between mindfulness and our physical and spiritual well-being. With scientific rigor, poetic deftness, and compelling personal stories, Dr. Kabat-Zinn examines the mysteries and marvels of our minds and bodies, describing simple, intuitive ways in which we can come to a deeper understanding, through our senses, of our beauty, our genius, and our life path in a complicated, fear-driven, and rapidly changing world.

Throughout this program, Kabat-Zinn explores various facets of the great adventure of healing ourselves - and our world - through mindful awareness, with a focus on the "sensecapes" of our lives and how a more intentional awareness of the senses, including the human mind itself, allows us to live more fully and more authentically. By "coming to our senses" - both literally and metaphorically, by opening to our innate connectedness with the world around us and within us - we can become more compassionate, more embodied, more aware human beings, and in the process, contribute to the healing of the body politic as well as our own lives in ways both little and big.

Critiques

"Ardent, personal, frankly opinionated in places, this book seeks to wake [us] up as individuals and as a culture. It is a treasure trove of contemporary wisdom." (Publishers Weekly)

Abridged but Full and Fulfilling.

Like an earlier reviewer, I was a bit put-off with the author/narrator's immediate information that this audio-book was highly abridged, and if the reader felt any lack, he/she had best buy the written copy.

Honestly, I hadn't read the description carefully and would not have bought this audio book if I'd known it was abridged beforehand. HOWEVER - I am very, very glad that I made this purchase, and I have already listened to the book more than once.

I have either listened to or read others of Kabat-Zinn's work - Mindfulness for Beginners (Super Excellent!! Buy it first!); Full Catastrophe Living (audio book), and Wherever You Go, There You Are (print and audio!) and now Coming to Our Senses (audio).

I had thought about buying the print version before the audio version, but I LIKE Kabat-Zinn's voice, I like his narration, and his soothing style.

In this audio book - Coming to Our Senses - Kabat-Zinn talks about becoming awake, being aware, "intentionally and with purpose" on a daily basis. He talks about mindfulness, and becoming mindful through use of all our senses. He touches on each sense - sight, hearing, touch, taste, smell and also our sense of being in the world around us.

For me, this book was excellent, and I will continue to listen to it, or to "audio-skim" it, regularly. It reminded me to be aware, to reminded me to be present.

I did NOT feel that anything was missing. Though I will likely keep an eye out for the printed version, I felt that the audio was excellent.

Less than expected

The author prefaces his reading with the disclaimer this is a VERY abridged version. You're advised to purchase the printed book; which I found disconcerting in an audio production. Audible was prompt to refund so the real issue is why promote a title that's more a tease than a worthwhile tome?

Coming to Our Senses

Interesting variety of types of ways to consider as meditation. Walking and even running as meditation. I will possibly need to listen to it again when I am not so busy multitasking and in more of a meditative position to really absorb the message. Seemed to have some valuable points deserving some more serious consideration to apply in my life.

Amazing but I felt it was too abridged.

Kabat-zinn is an amazing writer and an excellent reader. The content is some of the best written in our generation. my problem is I paid 15 dollars for less than a 10th of the actual book.

listening takes practice. listen many times.

I often found myself nodding in agreement or chuckling out loud at my own behavioral habits. listening takes practice and I listened to this audio book several times, each time catching another bit of information I put into play in my own life.

Great book

Such great context. He talks later very fast so I had to slow the speed down.

Disappointing

I believe that "Coming to our Senses" can be summed-up quite simply as: "All Sizzle and No Steak". Banal touchy-feelie self-help'isms that fall well short of substantive.
