Description

What if you could profoundly change your life just by becoming more mindful of your breathing? According to Jon Kabat-Zinn, you can. What if "paying attention on purpose and non-judgmentally" could improve your health? Again, according to Dr. Kabat-Zinn, it can.

In Mindfulness for Beginners, this internationally known scientist, best-selling author, and teacher who brought mindfulness meditation into the mainstream of medicine and society gives you immediate access to a practice that can potentially add years to your life, and will certainly enhance the quality of your moments and your years. Join Dr. Kabat-Zinn to:

  • Explore five guided meditations that lead you breath by breath into the essence of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), a program offered in medical clinics and hospitals around the world
  • Cultivate the Seven Key Attitudinal Factors of MBSR, 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"
  • Free yourself from limiting perspectives, and become more intimate with your own boundless awareness

    "You're already in the perfect moment for inhabiting this liberating awareness, which is always available," teaches Jon Kabat-Zinn. With Mindfulness for Beginners, he invites you to cultivate mindfulness as if your life depended on it, which it surely does, and experience the magnitude and beauty of who you already are.

    Great for beginners

    This book will teach you how to listen. If you are in a hurry this is not for... you. There are many pauses that will test your patience but if you let go and just listen you will be satisfied.

    Profound

    I've listened to this every week since I downloaded it a few months ago, and find it extremely helpful in relaxation and keeping me grounded. I love the tone and cadence of it; it less like a reading and more like an impassioned conversation with a friend. He removes the religious and new-age-y connotations from meditation, and explains how awareness fits in with thoughts, senses, mind and body.

    This is really good!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Mindfulness for Beginners to be better than the print version?

    Yes, for something like meditation, it's more 'real' when you can listen. Also with this book, which I have, you don't get the guided meditations except on c.d.

    What about Jon Kabat-Zinn’s performance did you like?

    I don't know why one reviewer said it was awful, it was fine, and he does show inflection and passion for it. He is NOT monotone.

    Any additional comments?

    Listen for yourself, it's a great book for beginners, which I am. Lots of good, easy to understand concepts.

    Best and most balanced explanation of Meditation.

    Chapter 1 covers a detailed and balanced explanation of mindfulness and meditation and its importance. Best I have ever heard actually.

    Chapter 2 is a series of guided meditation designed to teach someone how to focus, concentrate and meditate. During the series the author explains what is going on and why then gives tips to help the beginner understand how to and what is meditation. I particularly liked the raisin meditation. Focusing your mind on an external object can be very helpful before focusing on internal things.

    Love it! Very insightful! Thank you Jon Kabat-Zinn

    I was recommened this and actually recieved this from my counselor for my anxiety and depression. It was about 5 years ago now and it really changed my life for the better. I am so greatful for receiving it and learning the practice. I know now the beauty that comes from doing the pracices and always have it when I need it or just feel like spending time with myself in this loving way. Which I do often. I highly recommend this book and meditations on mindfulness to anyone looking to better themselves.

    This is not the same book as written.

    This audible version appears to be the accompanying CD, and not the full text of the book. Other than that, It was great.

    Everyone can get something here!

    Everyone could benefit from this content in some way. It describes what most of us crave in our daily lives, but are so removed from the practice of, let alone the idea of, that it is actually difficult to conceive unless one decides to just stop and focus, even for just five minutes. The narration is casual and frank, feeling like a discussion I wish I could have with a good friend.

    Spectacular Presentation!

    This book and the reading by Kabat-Zinn inspired and propelled me into deeper realms of self discovery and introspection. Absolutely fantastic. Will read other books by Kabat-Zinn in the future—and continue my mindfulness practice!

    A Wonderful Journey

    Listening to this book is like taking a spiritual journey back home. John's voice is very soothing and it feels like he is right here with me.
